Three Party Planning Mistakes to Avoid

Hints and tips for your private function in Devon

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 in Devon, you can trust our advice on what party planning mistakes to avoid making.

Here are our top three mistakes to avoid when planning your party in South Devon:

1. 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.

2. 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. 

3. 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.


Here at the Langstone Cliff Hotel, we have a range of festivities in place throughout the year.

From dance holidays to festive dinners, our events in South Devon are the best around and we would love for you to join us.

Whether you want to be a part of our pre-planned events or utilise one of the best party venues Dawlish has to offer for your own celebration, we’d love to welcome you to the Langstone Cliff Hotel. For the best rates or any enquiries, contact us directly or call 01626 221329.
