Set a Budget
You’ve heard the saying “it takes money to make money”—and that’s 100% true for events. Sure, if you’re persuasive enough, you can probably get some essentials donated to your event—like an event space, booze, food, and even entertainment. But despite that generosity, you’ll still end up needing some cash on hand for quite a few other expenses, like transportation, meals for staff and volunteers, and tips.
To make sure you can swing it, create a budget before you start planning the details.
Tour The Venues
Tour the facilities to determine if there is adequate space and to find out what supplies are available to use. While touring the facilities, make a map of the event ahead of time to help avoid any “traffic” problems, such as lines blocking places needing access.
Plan Your Decorations
If you don’t have a large budget for decorations, it may be in your best interest to find an event venue that has a beautifully decorated event space so that your decor budge can be minimal. Your event staff should plan the event set-up well in advance. The set-up includes all of the particulars of the actual event: Where will it be? Will food be served? Will there be entertainment? What kind of dress will be required? What is the itinerary for the event?
