Planning a ? successful event could be a great fit. Be it a wedding ceremony, birthday party, baby shower e.t.c. Making your event day worth while is something that requires an amount of effort. I would be outlining three secrets to planning a successful event.
1. Start Planning Early
As it’s often said, “nothing beats preparation”. Start your planning process early enough, notify your vendors months prior to the event so they can make adequate preparation and schedule that day to you. Most important you can always go over your plans over and over before the day of the event.
2. Hire an Event Planner
This is one thing that can’t be over stressed. Some people feel the role of an event planner can be filled by a friend or family but most times this always ends up wrong. An event planner is there to help you bring your vision to reality, they already have a pool of vendors they could easily reach out to, saving you the stress of sourcing for vendors.
3. Create Communication Channels
You having an event is about creating memories. Most times, we fail to create mediums of communication with guests before and after the event. Most people just send out invitation cards and end it there which shouldn’t be the only means of communication with your guests. Manage a gift registry, create a cloud album and if possible an event web page, these are ways you can share more memories with friends and family.
