Friends and family members often gather in large numbers when there is a reason to celebrate. Such an event or celebration can either be a birthday remembrance, New Year celebration, wedding ceremony, anniversary, house warming, a celebration of life, or any of the remarkable religious days. It can also be a prom night party or end of the year party in school or at work.
To host a remarkable celebration and have a fun-filled day, it is crucial to take note of the following:
(1)Have a Budget
To fail to plan is to plan to fail. Know your financial capacity as this is the basis for all other plans for a successful event.
(2)Employ An Event Planner
Not everyone is good at planning an event. It can be overwhelming, especially if it involves a large gathering. An event planner oversees the general welfare of the people in terms of accommodation, feeding, and transportation to and fro the venue, among other things. They also choose a venue that can comfortably accommodate the number of guests expected.
(3)Choose a Unique Menu
A classic, memorable event is always remembered with the taste of food and drinks served. It will be appropriate to have at least two different main dishes guests can choose from, preferably, foreign and local, especially if international guests are expected. Small chops should also be served before the main dishes.
(4)Contact a Caterer
It isn’t a good thing to look stressed from preparing meals even before the event starts. Employ a caterer or cook that will save you a lot of stress and time to have enough time with guests.
(5) Get an M.C. For The Event
A master of ceremony sees to the list of activities that will fit into the type of celebration. He puts humor and livens the atmosphere. An M.C. makes an event memorable.
(6) Hire a D.J or a Musical Band
Depending on the choice of the celebrant, a D.J or a band is needed to put people in the mood that get them on the dance floor. After all, who celebrates without music?
(7) Have Your Event Covered
Video coverage might not be necessary, but a photographer is! You wouldn’t want to lose those beautiful moments when guests rolled out in laughter or caught unaware. You would also like to remember the faces of people who turn out for the event. Getting a camera handler who does both the recording and pictures will do for a small gathering, it saves money.
(8) Assign People To Task
Assign trusted friends to a specific task such as welcoming guests, ushering guests to their seats, receiving gifts on your behalf, taking your calls, ensuring the hired personnel do their jobs correctly. A lot more tasks you are expected to do personally. You cannot be everywhere at the same time.
To have a successful celebration, ensure you send out invitations at least two weeks before the D-day as most people have their schedules. It is also advisable to avoid getting a loan to have a celebration as it is an expense and not an investment. Refunding such a loan might be difficult.
