Let’s get this party started!
Hosting a successful party or event depends on a lot of things. The decor, venue, food, drink, guests, music, just to name a few. When all these things come together just right, your night can be amazing. What’s the number one secret to making sure all that comes together just right? Planning early. Here are our top 5 reasons to plan parties early.
1. Own your theme
Ever start planning a themed party and then get invited to another party with the same theme? That’s not fun. Choose your theme early and that’s less likely to happen. Just make sure you make it known early, too.
2. Own your date
Everyone starts planning holiday parties around the holidays, don’t they? That can make it tough to find a date. Advance planning is a great way to get around this. Talk to the people you really want to be involved and set a date early. That way, you can have your holiday party when you want.
Pro tip: the best time to plan a holiday party for next year is during the holidays this year. Why? Because everyone has holiday schedules on their minds. Sure, some people don’t think that far ahead, but lots of us would appreciate knowing well in advance.
3. Own your guest list
This almost goes without saying, but one of the best reasons to plan early is the guest list. How disappointing is it to have people unable to come to your parties? Again talk to your family, close friends, and important associates and try to come up with a date that works as early as possible.
4. Get the team you want
Caterers, DJ’s, bartenders, entertainers, etc., love clients who plan in advance. And once you find providers you’re happy with, the only way to make sure you can use them again is to book them early. If you can, book them one year for next year’s event. If not, set up a reminder to call or email them when you know your date.
