If you have a knack for DIY and have a passion for watching YouTube tutorials and making Pinterest pegs come to life, then you might want to have a swing at event planning.Before anything else, it is worth noting that event planning is not an easy feat, especially for beginners. However, with enough practice and skills, a successful event will surely turn out even for beginners.
So what are the essentials in event planning? The primary thing to consider when beginning to plan an event is to have an objective or a theme. Will it be a grand celebration or an intimate one? Will it be a formal event or a laid-back gathering? Getting the basic details of an event is the primary step to ensure proper planning.
The next thing you have to consider is the budget. Seasoned event planners have a knack in making something out of a client’s constrained budget and that is the skill that new event organizers have to master. Knowing where to get beautiful yet affordable decors, flowers, souvenirs, etc. Will put an event planning team ahead of their competitors.
Making an event checklist can be considered old but gold. In this times full of techy and digital savvy apps, there’s still something different when writing in black and white. By having an event checklist, it will be easier to monitor the planning and spot areas that still need to be focused on. Remember, just because it’s an old method doesn’t mean that it’s an obsolete technique.
Lastly, having a back-up plan in case something goes wrong is very essential in event planning. Having some extra balloons, decors, souvenirs, suppliers, etc will not necessarily save the event 100% but it will definitely lighten the blow should there be any inconvenience during the event.
