a wedding can be the most enjoyable and stressful time of your life.
Most brides take at least 12 months to plan to ensure they will have
the ability to plan there wedding without rushing. The first thing you
want to do when planning your dream wedding is to set your budget. Your
budget will allow you to know which vendors you will or will not be
able to work with. Make sure your budget is realistic, set cushions.
The reason most couples go over budget, is because they do not allow
for financial changes in their plans.
The next step to
planning your dream wedding is to select your venue. The internet can
be a great tool for narrowing down your selections. If you are on a
budget, you might want to select a venue to house both your ceremony
and reception. When selecting a dual location, you will cut down or
eliminate the cost for transportation and your guest will not have to
travel between your ceremony and reception sites.
Finally, remember, when planning your wedding, enjoy your time. This is
a once in a lifetime event. If you are on a budget, make sure to
splurge on at least one item. You do not want to look back regretting
not hiring your favorite bakery, florist, DJ, dress designer… If you a
lot for one splurge, you will not hurt your budget.
BIRTHDAY PARTY TIPS
parties can be some of the most fun events; because, there aren’t any
rules. When planning a milestone birthday (i.e. 21, 30, 40, 50…), your
focus should be on the honoree’s favorite anything. If mom’s favorite
foods are brownies, your favors could be nicely decorated brownies
placed in little boxes. You could also have a brownie station where
your guest would make brownie sundaes. Make sure to incorporate some
your loved ones favorite things.
Another type of birthday
party that can be tons of fun is a surprise party. When I plan
surprise parties, I ask the guest of honors family for pictures and a
couple of article of clothing that belong to the guest of honor. This
will allow me to get an idea of his/her style, what he/she likes or
dislikes. After I’ve processed this information, I then put together
about 3-4 different design layouts for the family to choose from. Make
sure that as you’re planning the party to keep in mind that this is not
your party, this is mom or dad’s birthday party.
CORPORATE EVENTS TIPS
Events are interesting to plan (to say the least). The corporate events
that I’ve planned have all had the same issue BUDGET. When you first
met with your contact, please make them commit to a budget. Most
clients try to stray away from this topic, however, you must make them
settle on the most expensive amount they want to spend. Once you are
able to nail down a budget, then you’ll have the ability to call on
those vendors that will allow you to gain the most profit.
After your client has given you a budget, have them email you their
needs and desires. I have found that you have less room for error when
the client communicates to you what they want for their event. Many
clients believe they have told you what they want for their event, and
the day of, if you do not produce, they will blame you – this is why
written communication is vital. You will eliminate confusion if you
have their needs and desires written out prior to giving a proposal.
Once you’ve analyzed what will work best for their event, found vendors
(that will do a great job and render you the best profit) and given a
proposal, you then want to execute your event. I cannot stress enough
to have the best vendors possible. The better your vendors, the better
