An Event Planner will offer you a peace of mind while saving you time and money.

Hiring a consultant to plan your event has in the past been viewed as a luxury that the affluent enjoyed but the cost of hiring a professional is surprisingly affordable given the amount of details they have to work with.

Holding true to the old adage “What can go wrong, will go wrong” … but, that doesn’t mean that you have to stress if your event planner handles it. At the end of the day (or in the early hours the next morning) you, the host, will shine for hosting such a great event.

Here's what some of our clients have to say...

To Dave and the Entire ViP Bartending and Event Planning Team

Thank you Dave and your entire team for effortless taking the reigns and planning not only one but two events for us at Banana Republic on Robson Street. You were awesome, asking the right questions to determine our needs for two special events before the busy Holiday Season. You especially went out of your way, organizing an event for over 200 in just a couple of days when a last minute cocktail party had to be put together. Again, really great job and thank you, we wouldn’t hesitate to contact you again for any and all upcoming events.

We used Dave and his staff for our wedding and they did an amazing job! Dave helped me arrange for a liquor license and took care of those details, made recommendations about rentals, and just generally was great to bounce ideas off during the busy planning process.

We picked a beautiful but challenging location with no power or water and they all did a great job of taking care of everybody and all the small details.

They were professional and polite, and very easy to work with- I would definitely recommend VIP Bartending and Event Planning to anyone planning a small or big event!

Dear Dave,

We know this email is long overdue… but thank you so much once again for bartending at our wedding and for all the tips of what to purchase! We and our guests were very happy with the drinks, your professionalism, and your service.

We loved the special touches of the veronica-tini and the tony-tini as did our guests and we thank you for making sure our guests were well taken care of. We have attached a few pictures onto this email.

Thank you once again and hope you are doing well,

Veronica Solimano and Tony Daws
