Q: Why are surprise events so awesome?

A: Surprising someone you love is exciting (and ridiculously fun!). Surprise events are unique in that they are planned entirely with someone else in mind. Every decision is made according to what the surprisee wants (or would want if they were planning it for themselves). Planning an unexpected event is an incredibly rewarding experience because you get to show your loved one exactly how you feel, instead of just telling them. For your surprisee, once the initial shock wears off, it’s an incredibly touching experience, because they can see the effort you have gone through on their behalf.

Q: Will my partner/surprisee still love their surprise if I don’t do it by myself?

A: Yes! The planning stages are collaborative, so you will have as much room for input as you want. Your surprisee will be amazed at how well you know them, because every detail of your event will be completely customized to their tastes. And all of that information will come from you! Your surprisee will love that you took the initiative to do something unique and unexpected  for them, and that you cared enough to make sure it was perfect, even if you had help. Especially if they would have just gotten the same old thing because you didn’t have time for anything else! 

Q: Can't I plan a surprise event on my own?

A: Our services are great for people who don't have the time to manage the hundreds of details it takes to pull off a great surprise (planning, coordination, shopping, set up... you get the idea). Work, family and other commitments can take up a lot of time, and wouldn't it be nice if you could spend what's left of your day (if there is any left) with your partner, friends or even beloved pet? If you are surprising your partner, it can be very difficult to maintain the secret while living in the same house (or tiny apartment). You might also have the best of intentions but no idea how to begin. You might be terrible at keeping secrets by yourself. If any of these sound like you, or if you're just looking for some professional guidance, then our services were meant for you! If, however, you have the time, know-how, creativity, and the touch of deviousness a surprise event requires, then go for it!

Q: What kind of events does Surprise Me Events plan?

A: We plan any and all (happy) surprises! From extravagant parties to intimate occasions for two, if you can think of a reason to surprise someone we can help you do it. There are a few ideas below, but remember, we are only limited by our imaginations!

  • Proposals
  • Date nights
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversaries
  • Surprise weddings
  • Engagement parties

Q: What do I have to do on the day of the surprise?

A: It depends on the details of the event. You will probably be responsible for getting your surprisee to the venue. For proposals and date nights, that's usually it. If that part isn't up to you, then you simply have to show up! For a larger party, your role might be a bit more involved (but only a bit more!). One of the best things about Surprise Me’s service is that you get to enjoy the event almost as much as your surprisee. In a typical event, both you and your guest get to experience the reveal at the same moment. Sure you know what’s about to happen but you still get to be a little bit surprised!

Q: Is there anything else I should know about your services?

A:  We are proud to say that we maintain excellent relationships with select “preferred” vendors in the Lower Mainland. Benefits of these connections can include VIP treatment, extras, and even (sometimes) special pricing. And if you needed yet another reason to hire us, we pass those benefits straight to you!
