Event Planning is hard work — from pre-event, during the event, and post-event: the amount of hard work and time that goes into a single event is more than people think. I’ve  gathered up (8) inspirational quotes that I  think are essential for any planning of an event!

If you need a little pick-me-up, remember — even the most well-known, sought-after event professionals need a bit of encouragement now and then!

So…to help you through your event planning nightmares; I’ve compiled (8) quotes that I found inspirational at various stages of planning something.

Here we go!

1. “Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.” – Albert Einstein

Having fantastic and creative ideas are great, but they’re nothing without rolling up your sleeves and getting down to the actual planning. At the end of the day, that’s everything.

2. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.” – Abraham Lincoln

You should never be hurried with your event planning if you haven’t laid the right groundwork yet. The key to pull off a successful event is lots of planning. Spend the time getting ready and when the event rolls around you’re 100% prepared.

3. “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Set a goal, make a plan and get to it. A great event planner will concur with this assessment.

4. “If Plan A didn’t work the alphabet has 25 more letters. Stay cool.”

Sometimes even the best planning won’t be sufficient to keep your plan A on course. But remember, there is the option to move to plan B (or C, D, E…) and keep moving forward. Only you will notice the change in alphabet.

5. It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Rachel Mueller-Lust

The moment you realize you couldn’t pull it off? Yeah…We’ve all been there. But, guess what? It’s just that moment and then it’s over. Stay the course! 



6. “Good plans shape good decisions. That’s why good planning helps to make dreams come true.” – Geoffrey Fisher

When you see the entire picture (venue, decor, etc…) of the event in full flow – It’s at this point you find out that dream events really do come true!

7. “If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.”

For the best event planners in the business, “that’s good” is never enough. If there’s the smallest detail nagging at you — a detail you know would be the difference between good and great — settle in and get it done.

8. “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” ― Warren Buffett

Every event comes to an end, and thanks to a  tireless, passionate event planner it will undoubtedly be one to remember  — and that’s something to be proud of.

Alrighty, hope this helps!
