Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to hire an event planner?

Event planners are often thought of as a luxury, not as a necessity. Hiring an event planner, an expert in their field, saves you money, teaches you how to navigate and negotiate as well as brings ideas that you won’t find on pinterest.


Not once have I heard a client say, I really wish I hadn't hired an event planner for my event.


Can I afford an event planner?

The answer to this question is most likely, ‘yes’. Working with OFab Events, we partner with top industry professionals, some of which include caterers, decor rentals, liquor distributors, sound and lighting and promotional swag distributors.


Working with an experienced event planner, you will be saving yourself money, as we negotiate on your behalf. A good event planner brings the knowledge, experience and industry connections that will end up saving money and in our case, creating a FABULOUS event.


Can I plan my own event and hire you to show up and manage my event, the day of?

Unfortunately, OFab Events does not do provide this service, only because there is too much room for error. Just like you, we like to keep our finger on the pulse, so we can make sure everything is executed properly. Making a mistake during your event  is the last thing we want to do.


An experienced event planner can gauge how much creativity and hands-on personal touch, you would like to add to your event. 


Our process starts with an initial. "get to know you" meeting, to set the dynamic from the beginning. Some clients want to sit back and allow you to do the work, others want to make each decision along the way. We've worked with plenty of both.


How much do your services cost?

This is based on the number of guests, the complexity and time required in planning the event. Expect to spend a minimum of $1,000 for an event with 50 guests. Using our trusted vendors, will save you money in other areas.


What is the worst thing that has ever happened during an event?

Our biggest "Epic Fail" was when we planned a destination event, in a tropical location, where the local vibe was very laid back. The steel drum player decided to book another gig in another location and not answer his phone.  Fortunately, we were aware of the Island’s laid back vibe and had a back up plan. To this day, the guests have no idea of the behind the scenes music switcheroo.
