3.)    Flexibility:
Though you may not know much about the event lighting aspect, you may have some designs in mind. When you choose a designer for this, make sure they are flexible in changing their mind on lights as well as the budget. They should be able to put things together as fast as possible and make sure you are comfortable with all the work that they are doing.
