    Events by Sherri offers full-service event design, planning and coordination services, small rentals, and candy/cookie/snack buffets. We handle and and all types of events including weddings, family celebrations and corporate functions. Quite simply, event planning/coordination is what we do best and everyone at Events by Sherri is committed to making your event "one-of-a-kind" and everything you hoped for. Because every event should reflect the host(s) personality and it is our job to make sure that happens! Consider us the gift you give yourself - a worry-free, stress-free event!! You deserve it!
    Choosing and hiring an event planner will be the best investment that you will make and . . . should be viewed as such. You could probably manage to pull your event off on your own or with the help of co-workers, friends and/or family. But why would you WANT to do that. Invest in yourself and let us do what we do best. If it's a corporate event, I've got the experience and the contacts to make it happen. You may or may not have a full-time employee who is well-versed in how to do large and small corporate events. If it's a family celebration, leave the details to us and just enjoy being with your family and friends! If it's your wedding, think about this - you will spend a lot of time, effort and money getting the perfect wedding dress, venue, music, flowers, cake, food, DJ or band. It just makes sense that you should hire someone to make sure all the details come together on that special day! Why risk being so stressed out by all the last-minute details that you can't enjoy the day? An experienced event planner should be that final investment in the wedding you've always dreamed of!
    Yes, there are! And believe it or not, I'm going to tell you the biggest reason you may not want to hire an event planner.......... You will be required to relax and let someone else take care of the details for you and just simply enjoy your special event! This is very hard for some people to do. If you absolutely can't accept the tremendous amount of help an experienced event or wedding planner can give you, you thrive on dealing with the last-minute hustle, bustle and stress, and you love the minutia involved with planning & executing your event or wedding while trying to get ready for the event yourself, then hiring an event or wedding planner may not be for you. And that's OK if that's what works best for you.
    Not an issue at all if you hire the right event or wedding planner, regardless of who that might be. You actually gain MORE control over your special day! An experienced event or wedding planner knows your event or wedding is exactly that, YOURS! He or she should be there to: LISTEN to you, assist you with the design, planning and all the details on whatever level you wish, make suggestions based on their experience, be creative on your behalf and help make your vision a reality so that your event is exactly as YOU want it to be. They should be there to make sure your wishes are carried out. A good event or wedding planner listens to what you want and figures out a way to make it happen!
    If you're organized, you can do all the planning yourself, but you can't be in two places at the same time at your own special event! No matter how far ahead you start or how well you plan, you're only one person. You may have a host of friends and family helping you, but again, only one person should be coordinating your event or wedding. When the "day of" arrives - your corporate event, your wedding day or the day of your parents' 50th anniversary celebration, for example - you can't be two places at the same time.
    We can plan your event or wedding, take care of all the details for you so you can relax and enjoy your “special” event. You don’t want to be so exhausted by the time the day arrives that you don’t even remember half of it. Remember that you can't be multiple places at the same time. . . we can so let us help you!
    Yes you can; I will do as much or as little as you need or want. Each event is tailored to your needs AND your budget. And again, it's an investment in your special day. A good wedding or event planner can actually save you money. We can share with you "tricks of the trade" that only experience can provide and by looking at your budget and steering you to vendors that can stay within your price point. Do you really want to waste time interviewing scores of vendors and not find the "right one." Or you become extremely frustrated because "they are all too expensive and/or just aren't "quoting what we want." We will find out what's most important to you and show you ways to spend more on the the things that are of utmost importance to you and provide you tips on how to accomplish those things that are further down on your list for less.
    The consultation visit and estimate are both free with no obligation on your part; then you decide where we go from there. If you decide to hire Events by Sherri for your special event, remember that this is what we do and we do it very well. We help you get started and are there with you every step of the way!
    I have a fairly extensive inventory of small, decorative items for my clients to choose from either "a la carte" or in an unlimited rental package. Why buy multiples of a lot of items and then just have to pack them up and figure out what to do with them after your event.The beauty of Events by Sherri providing your small rental items/decorations is that we set them up and we take them down so that's one less thing you have to worry about!
    After you've contracted with Events by Sherri for your special event, we'll talk about what you need and want. I provide all my clients with an extensive vendor list showing vendors in the area, pending their availibility, and many, many other premier vendors who are excellent to work with based on my personal knowledge or on the recommendation of others that I trust implicitly. I am more than willing to work with new vendors and welcome adding to my vendor base.
    Events by Sherri loves destination weddings! We love a challenge and we love destination weddings! Package pricing is completely based on location so give me a call and we'll go from there!
