Tulsa Event Space | Stokely Event Center – Questions? Contact us here.
Whether you’re planning a birthday party, wedding, wedding reception, family reunion, graduation party, or any other number of events, our team at Stokely Event Center knows that having an awesome event requires some hard work! Things like finding and booking a Tulsa event space, ordering catering, and putting together table decor, don’t just happen on their own.
That said, here are a few tips that we’ve learned over the years that we believe will help you in your Tulsa event space planning process.
Have a Good Time
Even if you’re the one that is responsible for planning the event, don’t forget to have a good time. Our biggest tip for doing this is to expect the unexpected and be ready to make adjustments. As you plan and execute your event at a Tulsa event space, you are likely to run into things that you didn’t expect. Even if things don’t flow exactly as they were on paper, being willing and ready to make adjustments can mean the difference between being stressed out all night and having a good time. Enjoy the great party that you took the time to bring together!
Hire a Photographer
When you’ve put so much effort into planning a great memorable occasion, it would be a shame not to have professional photos to remember the night by. If you’re erring on the side of snapping a few photos yourself, just remember that photographers, for the most part, are trained professionals that will do a great job of capturing every last detail of the event that you’ve planned. After the event is over you’ll be able to order photo books to share with friends and loved ones so that you can all remember the event for years to come. Whatever Tulsa event space you’re considering, make sure there is a great photographer there to capture the night forever.
Send Out Invites Early
When it comes to invitations, the sooner the better. When you’re planning a large event, if you want the best chance of having everyone important there, it pays off to work ahead by getting your invitations out to everyone early in the process. This will give your guests sufficient time so that they can make arrangements to attend. If your event is primarily for adults, this will give everyone time to find child care for the night of the event at your Tusa event space. Sending out your invites early might not seem like a significant item, but it is a tasteful courtesy that all of your guests will appreciate.
If your event is somewhat less formal, a great way to send out invites is by creating an event on Facebook. Sending out electronic invites has the added benefit of showing your real-time how many guests have signed up to attend. When using Facebook, it’s best to set an RSVP cut off date so that you can avoid a lot of last-minute sign-ups.
