20 May Planning a Special Event? Here Are 5 Tips for Planning a Successful Event
A birthday, an engagement, a wedding, a corporate party, or just a special dinner with family and friends, planning an event can be pretty fun, and at the same time, stressful. Here at DonerG, we have come up with five tips that will help you plan a successful event that will remain in the memories of your guests.
- Choose a date
Thinking of planning an event? Choosing a date puts your event in a clearer perspective, especially if you have been dreaming of that event for a long time without taking an active step.
Having a set date also encourages you to start planning as you have adequate time to pick a venue and book services necessary for the event. You also have the luxury of knowing what the weather will be like on that special day, helping you make weather-proof plans.
- Decide on your guests.
How many guests are you having at your event? 10? 20? 30? Or more? Decide on the number of guests you want at your event. This determines the size of the venue, the quantity of food and drinks, and other important decisions.
Write a list of your guests’ names to plan a sitting arrangement, and note their dietary needs and allergies.
- Create a budget
A budget keeps you in check to get lost in the planning process and spend more. With a budget, you get to allocate how much you will spend on food, decorations, venue, etc. This way, you have a successful event without running into debts.
- Ask for help
No matter how small your event may be, you might get overwhelmed with the planning process. What happens when wine tasting and venue tour is on the same day? Assistance is necessary. Ask for help from friends or family members who are efficient.
