Your event may be months, even years in the making, but if you neglect to prepare for these very common issues, your extensive planning may be all for not. Make sure each of these issues is addressed during your planning stages and ensure a memorable, exceptional event.
Designate a Delegator
Regardless of how large your planning team may be, designate one chief organizer and allow then to delegate the big day. Too many bosses make for more confusion than order, so get in front of any disagreements by allowing one voice to run the event.
Make Guest Experience a Priority
There are no bad ideas in a brainstorm, but your event can quickly spin out of control if every great idea is included in the final product. Be judicious in planning and ensure that the guest experience is put before the organizer’s pride.
Allow for Flexibility in Your Budget
Never assume your budget is locked down. Unexpected expenses are always lurking just out of sight. Prepare for them by making sure your budget is flexible and cleverly allocated.
