I love working with full-service clients for their Mitzvah party planning needs. There are always so many reasons why people hire planners and here are some reasons why I’ve found clients want to hire a full-service party planner.
What is full-service party planning?
First, let start with some background about what full-service planning is. My full-service package allows you to be led through the entire Bar or Bat Mitzvah planning process without worrying about a thing. It gives you the freedom to be as involved in the process as you’d like or as your schedule allows. I’m responsible for managing the planning timeline, budget and vendor communication. I attend as many meetings or site visits as you’d like and you never have to make a decision on your own. I handle all of the vendor communication, so all you need to do is sign on the dotted line once you’ve made your decision. And why might those things be important to you?
1. You’re busy
Like really, really busy. Both spouses work or have hectic schedules, you have several kids and the thought of doing everything related to planning the weekend makes you break out in a cold sweat. You’re already overwhelmed with all of the responsibilities you have and now you need to add on hours and hours of researching, planning and figuring out the details. It’s just too much!
2. You’re not Jewish
You’ve been involved in your child’s Jewish community for some time, but this Bar or Bat Mitzvah thing is a new curveball. You’ve never really been to a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and aren’t sure where to start. You know you need a lot of advice and are scared you’ll make a wrong decision. What is the proper etiquette? What do other families do? What should your family do?
3. You’re indecisive
There are just so many options for photographers, videographers, MCs, decorators… Just seeing the list of all of the vendors you’ll need is making your indecisive heart second guess itself. You want more guidance and fewer options that are curated just for you by someone who has taken the time to get to know exactly what your family is looking for.
4. You’re on a tight timeline
Did you procrastinate and now see just how much work it will be? Have you started making phone calls and the vendors your friends have used are booked? With only a few months left to go, you need to hustle and there’s no room for error. You need someone who can get the planning done fast!
5. You don’t really care
It’s not that you don’t care about the process; you are so proud of your child and their accomplishments! You just don’t care that much about the party. You know you need to have one, but the details? Meh, leave it to someone else!
There are a lot of reasons why people hire full-service party planning help and the reasons above are some of the ones I’ve heard most recently. I love working with full-service clients to give them a truly custom experience based on their family’s needs and wants.
