Three Party Planning Mistakes To Avoid
Whether you are planning a party for your colleagues, friends, family or a loved one, the best of intentions aren’t always enough to ensure that the event goes smoothly. As one of the best party venues Devon has ever seen, you can trust our advice on what party planning mistakes to avoid making.
Don’t wait until the last minute to start planning.
If you’re stuck for time, it is better to delegate jobs out to family members or friends who can help. If you don’t do this, you run the risk of running out of choices. Be prepared and start your planning at least a month or two in advance. That way, you can secure all the elements of your party – including your venue.
Thinking you don’t need a guest list.
It’s easy to dismiss the idea of a guest list – thanks to social media you can now invite people to events instantly. Even if this is the case, you don’t want to forget to invite somebody by accident and risk an awkward encounter before or after the party. Make a good old-fashioned pen and paper list and keep track of how many people RSVP.
Not calculating a budget.
A lot of people try to overstretch their budget. Calculate your budget early on and make sure that you have contingencies in place for any last-minute requests or necessities.
