5 Event Planning Tips

Hello Passionista-

I love planning events, everything from weddings, dinners, parties and conferences. I’ve always been a planning person. I remember when I turned 15, I started a notebook with my ideas and plans for my sweet 16. When it was time for my parents to start planning my Sweet 16 I had a notebook full of “grand” plans. Needless to say, not all of my “grand” ideas were taken serious by my parents, but it felt great to see some of my ideas put to life by an Event Planner.

Don’t think just because event planning isn’t your thing that you can’t be heavily involved in the event planning process. As a event planner, it is my job to execute every one of my clients ideas and visions for their event within reason. Some clients give me a theme and allow me the control to come up with whatever my creative leads me to, other clients give a detailed vision that I work with them to create for the entire event.

Here are 5 event planning tips to help non- event planners plan an event.

1.Organize your thoughts and ideas.

Use a notepad or journal to write down all of your ideas, no matter how big or small.

2. Create a detailed plan with a budget

List all the detailed that will take place or be needed for your event, set a budget according to the plan.

3. Make a checklist

Create a list of things that need to be completed before, during and after the event.

4. Make a schedule

Make time to complete your checklist in a timely manner.

5. Hire help

Build a team of vendors or hire a coordinator to manage all vendors for the event.
