Key Event Planning Stages
Your Initial Consultation
Your initial consultation is the first stage in the party planning process and a fantastic chance for us to learn more about you and your vision. Our event planners take this opportunity to discuss your requirements and dreams, however big or small. We also start detailing all the elements of your event, so we can get a better feel for what you want and you can see your party begin to take shape.
Selecting Your Venue
Choosing your venue is one of the first and most important decisions in your party planning process. At Orchid we listen to your needs, conduct thorough research and then provide you with a comprehensive selection of venues, each specifically chosen based on your requirements including your preferred location, guest numbers, setting and budget. We make this potentially challenging decision simple, organising site visits and liaising with the venues, ensuring that your preferred venue is the ideal one for your special occasion.
Keeping You in Control
Orchid Events understands that even though you have handed over the reins to us with planning your event, it’s still important to keep you in the loop. This is why we make sure to give you regular up-dates on all aspects of the event’s arrangements through meetings where appropriate, phone calls and emails. Orchid Events can also handle all the paperwork and manage your budget, checking contracts and negotiating the best rates for your event, be it for suppliers or venues. All this process is completely transparent, and you are able to follow the planning process from start to finish, as we deal with all the details.
Designing Your Event
From the flowers and decorations to theme ideas, we work with you to bring your vision to life. We ensure that every detail of your event is perfectly planned, presenting you with mood boards, concept proposals and designs so you can be confident that your event will look exactly as you imagined.
At Orchid we believe that outstanding entertainment is a vital element of a perfect party, igniting the atmosphere and enthralling your guests.
