The answer is simply, yes! Whether you’ve had a planner with you from the beginning or you’ve decided a day-of coordinator would do the trick, you’ve made the right decision by hiring help! After spending months and months of planning and after spending years thinking about the day your child would become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, it is crucial to enjoy the occasion. Events By Tess offers a variety of options to make sure you are a guest at your own party and can truly savor the memorable time!
FULL EVENT COORDINATION This is the soup to nuts option. From helping you find your venue and other big vendors to focusing in on the theme, as the date nears, and the various elements which tie the big day together, we are there to do it all. With this option, we work together to develop the type of party and vibe of party desired so we can suggest and find the right vendors and event elements. We make sure to keep everyone on track of what needs to get done from the day you receive your Mitzvah date through the last minute of the big day! DAY-OF COORDINATION If you don’t want full coordination or can’t have help along the entire way, this option is a must! Be a guest at your own party and let the worry wash away. With day-of coordination, we meet within 6 weeks of your date to review all the details of your event. We have you download your “party-brain” onto us so we can begin to take the stress away. We create the day-of timeline, review all items you’ve purchased and need to get sorted through that day, as well as, all booked vendors. We confirm all vendors within 2 weeks of the party and are there on the big day a few hours in advance until the end to make sure all elements are executed properly, the timeline runs smoothly and communication between all vendors and elements is flawless. We make sure you have a fabulous time and are not thinking about all of the details and dealing with all of the questions! “GETTING TO THE FINISH LINE” Is there something else you need? Are you a couple months out and haven’t figured out a theme yet or how to pull it into decor, catering, interactive elements and more? Are you not sure what else you’re supposed to be doing – giveaways, party favors, kippot, menus, table treats, etc. etc. etc.? Let’s chat! We don’t want anyone to feel stressed when it is our joy to plan and assist in making this day perfect! We can come up with a custom package to make sure you get the help you need.
How do you know which you need? Sometimes it’s a matter of budget. Which can you afford? Other times it’s a matter of what you have the time or desire to do. Planning your child’s Mitzvah may be the last thing you feel capable of doing or the last thing you feel interested in doing … finding vendors, getting contracts coming up with themes, finding creative ways to implement the theme, etc. As the founder and lead coordinator of Events by Tess, it is important to know that I have loved party planning since I was a little girl and the passion has only grown. Getting to be a part of my clients’ momentous occasion and special time in their family’s life is truly a gift! You can find me with a smile on my face at the end of every event because I know I’ve aided in their happiness which, in turn, brings me happiness! I hope to help you, too!
