Your best pieces of advice for event planning?
Checklists! We are all about making lists and making sure we have ticked everything off. Always have confirmed arrangements in writing. Share all final decisions with those who matter to ensure everyone is on the same page. Have certain people assigned to specific roles & responsibilities on the day. Always have a PLAN B!
Trust in those who are experienced and have plenty of knowledge with the venue or type of event you are hosting, they really do tend to know best when it comes to certain situations.
Hire an event planner or a venue that includes one. The last thing you want to be doing on the day is stressing and chasing after vendors. Sometimes it’s worth paying that little more for a venue or planner that is experienced, comes highly recommended and reviewed.
