It takes a good event planner to make sure everything will fall into place during the event, but it takes a great event planner to have everything fall into place and still anticipate for the worst case scenarios. In every party, don’t disregard the possibility of having some glitches throughout the entire event.
The purpose of planning an event is not only to make the guests, celebrants or hosts feel special on a day they want to celebrate. Rather, it is also a way to avoid mishaps and unfortunate things from happening. Here are some of the most common mistakes that happen during events or parties that you should avoid as an event planner.
Just contracting the venue itself can be so tedious, only to find out that your signed contract is invalid due to another organization’s booking. Avoid these conflicts by starting the booking process ahead of time understanding how it works.
There are many different holidays all over the world. Depending on who your client is, you have to be aware of the major holidays that are celebrated by the potential guests and adjust the event date if necessary.
You shouldn’t forget to update your budget whenever changes are made to ensure you won’t fall short. By managing your budget properly, you can stay on top of the game.
So everything’s ready, and you’re just waiting for the 150 guests to appear. However, only 50 of them shows up. Boost your event attendance by doing follow-up communications beforehand.
No matter how big or small the event is, there might always be security risks such as random acts of crime and violence or even natural disasters. So before you book a venue, research weather conditions or latest news to lessen security risks.
If something goes wrong in a party, don’t blame yourself. Some circumstances are just really inevitable, and an event planner is just supposed to handle them professionally and go on with the event!
