Here's a list of topics, questions and information you might want to ask and should have available: Event Details - Have a clear understanding of your event's basics, including the type of event, date, time, and location.

Event Purpose and Vision - Be able to describe the purpose of the event and your vision for how you want it to look and feel. Guest Count - Provide an estimated number of guests who will be attending. Preferred Services - If you have specific preferences for certain services (e.g., catering style, entertainment type), be ready to discuss them. Venue - If you already have a venue in mind, share this information. If not, let the planner know if you need assistance finding a suitable venue. Logistical Needs - Identify any specific logistical needs, such as audiovisual equipment, seating arrangements, transportation, etc. Timeline - If you have a preferred timeline for when the event should take place, share this with the planner. Backup Plan - If an outdoor event, do you have an alternate location?
