It is said: “by failing to plan, you are planning to fail.” Whether you’re planning to host a birthday celebration, a high tea event with some of your friends or even an intimate beach wedding, it is important to have an idea of the theme of your event, the number of guests you would like to invite, the venue as well as the décor among many other things.
We recommend that you go online and use resources such as Pinterest and Instagram to develop your idea and to start creating a mood board with all of your favored themes. Blogs also offer a great deal of inspiration and ideas for the perfect event.
A part of planning also involves setting aside a budget for your event, however, this is so essential that it needs to be highlighted on its own. To avoid headaches such as not having enough food and drinks for your guests or running out of funds to pay for crucial services, it is essential to have all of the event’s finances in check.
Contact suppliers well in advance and ask for detailed quotations. Understand that quotations are often valid for a limited period, however don’t allow this to rush you into any decision that you’re not ready to act on.
To keep costs low, try out a DIY project or two for your event. This can include making your own cocktails, to creating stunning photo boards using recycled material, or even fashioning some DIY décor of your own. Of course it is always advised to leave the more complicated tasks to the pro’s.
