How We Work

It is very important to us that your planning experience be as enjoyable as the event itself.

Creation

We facilitate the entire process by providing one-stop event planning and management services that encompass everything from initial concept development and presentation to production implementation and execution.

Whether designing a wedding or coordinating a corporate event, we begin with the genesis of the event and account for your personal “DNA”, company culture or brand message followed by the event details. This includes the number of guests and days, site specifications, time of year and structural elements. We then design an experience surrounding all aspects. We apply our five-senses approach from concept through completion to ensure that everything you smell, touch, taste, see and hear resonates with your guests. The message that we aim to convey should create a memorable and lasting impression.

Partners

As one of the premier events and wedding planning companies in Gauteng and other major cities, The Event Planner has developed a network of the best and most suitable creative partners for all event types. While we value and nurture relationships with our existing partners and seek to consistently help them perform better, we also continue to expand our relationships with new partners across a number of services. We take the guesswork and uncertainty out of working with unknown partners by carefully vetting each one to ensure the quality of their service and /or product, ensuring that their commitment to our event is consistent with our standards.

Budgeting

We are often asked, “How much will my event cost?” The short answer is as little, or as much, as your budget allows it to be.

Event costs can vary quite a bit depending on the degree of detail, number of guests, event length and what is selected within each category. We help guide you to decisions in each of these areas using your budget as a framework. As leading event planners in we know how to work with your budget and stretch it as far as it will go.

Management Fee

We charge a flat fee for planning and design based on the scope of your event. Other costs for materials, venue, catering, entertainment, and on-site staff would require quotation and listing on your budget to ensure all costs are clear during the design phase. A portion of the budget is due in the design phase and the remainder before the start of your event.

Event Budget

If you have not set a budget we can help you build one around the particulars of your event and your expressed wishes. Please contact us directly to discuss additional details or submit an inquiry below.

expert Support

Whether we act for a family, a product, a company or a cause, our work embraces experiences that integrate innovative design with the finest in wine and cocktails, dining, music, entertainment and—most important of all—that intangible element of surprise.

MEMORABLE moments

Memories are made over a great meal. Bonds are formed on a team adventure. And innovative ideas are learned during a dynamic seminar. You need more than a party planner to provide the very best experiences. You need a turnkey, strategic event agency that can bring your most important corporate and consumer moments to life.
