As event planners, we know there’s nothing quite like the excitement of deciding to throw a party. It’s a chance to get creative, come up with a fantastic vision of how you want it to look, the atmosphere you hope to create, the fantastic entertainment you might choose. It’s also a lot of hard work and a long list of details to cover off. And it’s the tiresome nitty-gritty business that can start to wear away the enthusiasm, regardless of how much time you have available to spend on the planning and organisation.

That’s where event planners can come in so useful. It doesn’t mean surrendering everything to someone else and not feeling involved, but it’s a great way of reducing stress and ensuring that your party happens exactly how you intend.

What you can expect from MGN events

Ours is a genuinely personal service. Whether you’re planning your birthday party, a surprise party for your other half, a wedding anniversary celebration, an 18th birthday bash for your son or daughter or their graduation party, we will take the time to get to know you. We want to know your thoughts on the kind of party you’d like, whether you want a marquee at home or fancy impressing your guests by hiring an incredible venue.

If you’ve come up with an entire concept, we’ll happily run with it and bring your vision to life. Or, if you’ve only got as far as throwing ideas around, we’ll listen to your thoughts and work with you to come up with a solid plan. What we won’t do is create a concept totally independent of yours – it’s your party, you should still have ownership of it. It needs to reflect your own/your partner’s/your son or daughter’s personality. If it doesn’t, the party will have no soul, no relevance.

No big decisions are made without your say so. In fact, you may well prefer to retain total control over the really important stuff. Whether you want to hire one band or another, which caterer you feel happier using and so on. Ours is a bespoke service and, no matter how much you do or don’t want us to handle, we’ll work in a way that suits you, but underpinned by our well established and proven planning processes.

We can also take care of your budget. With so many elements to pull together, it can be a juggling act to avoid overspend; we know how to get maximum value – and maximum impact on the party night itself – from every budget. Which brings us neatly on to third-party suppliers.

MGN events knows all the best suppliers

Our ‘little black book’ is a comprehensive database of the very best in the business. From premium venues to little heard of and unusual event spaces; highly creative caterers and florists to amazing live bands, aerial artistes and stilt walkers; we’ve made it our business to find the best quality suppliers and entertainers. They are people we can trust to uphold our own high standards and, by default, those of our clients; companies who know how to deliver in spectacular style, no matter what element of a party they are responsible for.

Bringing it all together

Part of an event planners skill-set is bringing together every element to deliver a party that looks effortless, coherent and seamless. Whether it’s ensuring your favourite colour is used across the party invites, floral arrangements and the cocktails. We pride ourselves on creative thinking, high production values, technical know-how and we think it shows in the many parties we have delivered over the years. Our clients appreciate the way in which we make the whole experience stress-free, which leaves them free to enjoy their party every bit as much as their guests. Ultimately, that’s what it’s all about – you should be able to enjoy yourself without panicking that something may go wrong.
