Event planning, no matter what scale, takes a lot of energy and focus to get it right and sometimes you might still end up with messed up things in the end. So for the best outcome, with the errors and all, is the one where almost everyone ends up happy. In order to get to this outcome there are a plethora of things you can try out. So here are some to add to your lists.
● Target audience and their general preferences
When you have the event audience figured out, whether it if your family, office coworkers, school mates or even your significant other then it becomes easier for you to understand the scale of things you have to plan and also whether you can go for the charter yacht Dubai you saw in the brochures for great events. And you can also think about what kind of colour themes to go for, which games should be in the events and whether you should put alcohol in the event food and beverages list.
● Lists are your friend
Keep separate lists for each section of the event; food, beverages, decorations, guests and et cetera. Mark down every tiny detail in these lists as you never know when you will need to know what kind of allergy the third cousin who’s twice removed and their kid has. Make sure to have the exact details for each list figured out from the beginning and distribute these lists to those who are in charge of the in charge of each section of the event (charter yacht doesn’t go under transport).
● Flexibility is the key
Even if you have all these hopes and dreams of sticking to one plan and getting the greatest party of the month done, most of the time plans tend to go awry and you end up with something totally different from your original goals. So prepare yourself for last minute changes and keep multiple backup plans to make sure that you cover the vitals of the event. Otherwise you will end up with the food missing and a lead singer missing in action. So for mishaps like this you will need impromptu singers and cooks.
● Watch out for competition
You will have to check to make sure that there are no large scale events going on close to your event (if you are doing a for profit event) so that the audience does not end up at the wrong place. You will need to watch out for other events even if you are doing a private function as it will end up running your party instead.
Keep in mind your limitations, your alternatives and your improvisations to make sure that you get a smooth start which will drag on till the smooth ending.
