We all know just how stressful event planning can be. Whether it’s coordinating the catering, entertainment, or getting guests engaged, there’s a lot that goes into making sure everything is as perfect as can be.
Event planners all agree that one of the most critical aspects of an event is making an impression. Who wants to spend so much time focused on planning only to be forgotten the next day?
First Impressions Count
Let’s start with the invitation. You know just as well as I do how easy it is to forget about an email invite. Sure, email is the easiest way to spread the word, but it’s also a great way to get lost in the shuffle.
Take time to develop a theme or craft custom messages that will resonate with your guests. This way, you’re creating a memory before even shaking hands. The little things like invites often get overlooked, but as event planners, it’s essential to live within the details!
Catering is Top Priority
If you’re like most people, nervous about having just another corporate event, the first thing that should be on your mind is catering. It’s not just about feeding your guests and making sure no one gets too hangery – event catering is so much more than that. Plenty of treats and flowing drinks encourage conversation and gets any slow party on a roll.
Don’t get stuck on the idea of just catering mini-hotdogs. Getting creative with your selection is a quick way to make sure your event stays top-of-mind. Ready to give your guests what they really want? One of the most popular additions to seemingly any event is a mobile espresso bar. But, don’t just settle for your local Dunkin’! Go the extra mile and make an impression on your guests with top-quality coffee that won’t soon be forgotten.
Plans can definitely become overwhelming trying to make sure your party lives up to your guests high-standards. So, always remember to work with reputable vendors, keep these tips in mind and make sure your next event creates a lasting impression.
