Finding a new hobby or gig this New Year? Event planning might be the one you’d want to start with. It is always fun to organize something that will make other people happy and excited! This is the kind of hobby that may even turn into a freelance work.
They say that the difference between a beginner and a pro event planner is the way they anticipate the event itself. A beginner envisions a successful event where everything goes smoothly while a pro knows that no matter how much you’ve prepared and planned for an event, something inevitable is always a possibility. So here’s how to be like a pro when you’re a beginner in event planning!
What do they want? How do they envision the event? What’s their taste? Getting to know your client well will help you unlock their unique preferences.
Avoid setting an event that is too close to holidays or other important events. Or else, expect a lot of empty seats in your event.
Create a realistic budget and stick to it throughout the event planning. Even if you have a large budget, you should not just spend here and there.
Food can make or break your event. No matter how lavish your event is, if the food isn’t that great, then it can actually ruin the whole event.
Like what was mentioned before, a pro event planner anticipates something might not always go as planned. Be it the location, the menus, the band, always be flexible and resolve any problems calmly.
Although it might sound easy, event planning is actually more than organizing an event. It is making an event outstanding regardless of unwanted circumstances. But as a beginner, you will surely find your way to success along the way with these tips!
