8 Signs You Need a Caterer/Event Planner



1. You don't have the time and/or resources necessary to produce an event:

This is something that stops a lot of people. With planning a party or an event, if it be corporate or personal, there are definitely going to be a multitude of matters that will have to be taken care of. Not only from the guest list, but to the catering, entertainment, scheduling, servers, drinks, and more. Most likely that with you already being the host of the event, having an Event Planner with be a complete lifesaver for you. Events can require weeks and sometimes even months of lead and prep time. It’s best to have an Event Planner worry about the logistics of the event. 

That’s where we come along. With our team and staff at Randy Fuhrman Events, you’ll rest assured knowing that there’s a dedicated team of industry professionals working to facilitate all of the needs for your event, saving you time and energy.

2. You have to produce astounding results and can't fail:

If you’re doing a corporate event such as a film premier or a product launch,you know that you have to have every single detail complete. The same goes for if you’re doing a personal event such as a birthday party or especially a wedding - and you know how stressful that can be. Why worry about all of the details and the stress that can come along with it all. In having to produce the event yourself, you’ll have to not only spend time ensuring that every detail is correct, but also the logistics of the event itself. This is where having a Caterer/Event Planner will save you your sanity and possibly your job. 

Let’s face it. Event Planning can be a monster in its own and it takes a team of professions with the necessary experience to produce your event and ensure that every detail that you desire comes to life. In selecting Randy Fuhrman Events to produce or cater your event, you’ll know every detail is handled.

3. Finding the right location:

Location, Location, Location! Yup, that’s right. Location is key. The world is a big place, therefore it’s loaded with locations that people are using for events or desiring to do so. There are so many locations, that it is nearly impossible to count just how many. In selecting your location, you’ll have to consider all of the details of it. Everything from the budget to the amenities that the location offers (lighting, power, parking, etc.) to how the location will work for your event in particular (size, available walking and standing room, theme, etc.) You’re already doing everything in your power to produce the event and make it happen, so why should you have to worry about the location as well. 

With so much to consider when looking at a location, choosing the right location can be incredibly overwhelming and frustrating. In choosing Randy Fuhrman Events, know that you’ll have a team out there scouring the earth to get that location that is right just for you.

4. Legal and logistical requirements:

Scheduling, location scouting, traveling, rentals, cars, guest travel...the list is endless. Between developing and executing the creative ideas for your event, there’s going to have to be the development and execution of the logistics. As we’ve mentioned, every part of your party must be planned and that’s including managing the event staff, scheduling of the event’s daily agenda, managing entertainment and more. You’ll have so much to do that you won’t even be able to enjoy the party and by the end of it you’ll be exhausted.
