Just starting to plan your event? How event planners in Dallas can help
During the beginning stages of event planning, it’s important to determine what level of event planning and support you will need. For example, if you’re planning an elaborate wedding and wedding reception, we strongly encourage you to hire a wedding planner to guide you.
Experienced event planners Dallas can narrow down options to consider—like venues, florists, caterers, photographers, entertainment, etc.—which can be a huge time saver. Top Dallas event planners also know how to match clients with vendors that best suit the style, mood, and theme of an event, as well as the personality and demands of the client.
If you’re planning a large-scale company event for employees or clients, you may also benefit from consulting a few of the corporate event planning companies Dallas has to offer. Since corporate event planners Dallas specialize in planning business-related events, you can expect them to provide terrific insight regarding venues that are easy to work with and those that would be suitable for:
- The number of guests you plan to host.
- Easily transporting guests between the venue, hotel accommodations, and the airport.
- Events that require plenty of onsite parking.
- The types of activities you will offer, such as team-building events, big parties with professional entertainers (bands, DJs, etc.) or holiday events.
- Events that require multiple spaces for different activities.
- Short-notice booking, should another venue fall through (they often know which venues have a date that opened up due to a cancelation).

Not planning to hire event planners in Dallas? A few things to consider
While many of our clients benefit from hiring a party planner Dallas event hosts planning smaller-scale events and those who prefer handling their own arrangements can often manage quite nicely without outside help. That being said, we encourage brides, mothers planning over-the-top quinceañeras and other milestone birthdays, and corporate event managers to consider choosing a trusted friend or colleague to help juggle details.
When you’re planning a celebratory event—especially f you’ve never done so before—it really helps to designate a personal attendant, marketing/HR assistant, or another point of contact to act as a buffer to minimize your duties and stress level. As the event host, you’ve worked hard to plan the event and should be able to relax and enjoy yourself when the event finally takes place.
Keep in mind, as a client of DFW Celebrations, you can also count on your dedicated venue coordinator to work closely with you and your point of contact to ensure your event runs smoothly. We’ll keep careful watch over vendors, servers, support staff, and even rowdy guests, so you can focus on what’s important.
Event Planning Tips
1. Don’t procrastinate
The sooner you start fleshing out your wish list for a venue, caterer, and other event services, the less stressful the event planning process will become. Our event pros recommend planning a year or more prior to grand events like weddings, quinceañeras, and sweet sixteens—especially since most event venues need to be reserved far in advance.
2. Create a budget spreadsheet
Whether you use an event planning app or an Excel spreadsheet, putting your budget in writing and tracking every expense and payment is a must. Expenses you’ll want to track for the venue may include:
- Banquet hall rental (depending on the package, may include some items below)
- Catering (food and drink)
- Décor (graphics, tablescapes, special linens, etc.)
- Custom centerpieces designed to complement the theme of your unique event
- Photographer and videographer
- Bartenders and servers
- Valet parking and/or transportation to and from the venue
- Sound and lighting
3. Seek expert advice
If you’re planning a large event—especially if you’ve never planned one before—hiring an event professional, such as the ones provided by DFW Celebrations, or a wedding planner can help simplify the planning process and minimize stress.
4. Research vendor options
You shouldn’t hire the first caterer or book the first venue you see online. Compare offerings from a few different service providers to help ensure you get all of the options and amenities you desire. Be sure to check references and online reviews before signing vendor contracts. Remember, we are available to assist you in vendor selection.
5. Review contracts closely
If you need to cancel, when is it too late to get your deposit back? Are there any fees for services you assumed would be covered that are not? What damages could you be liable for? These are but a few of the details you’ll want to consider before signing on the dotted line.
