Event Planning Tips

September 24, 2012

When planning an event such as a family reunion, class reunion or similar gathering, there are many details to consider. The good news is that if you start with a great facility, such as Orange County Mining Company, the staff will be able to walk you through much of the planning and help to ensure a successful event. Here are three other event planning tips to keep in mind.

1. Plan early. It is always amazing when someone tries to put together an event, such as a class reunion, with just one month’s notice. Sure, you can organize an event in that timeframe, especially with help from an experienced banquet facility in Orange County. But for the best turnout, and to give out-of-towners time to make arrangements, you need to plan the event further ahead.

2. You can’t please everyone, but you can try. At most large gatherings, someone is going to complain about something. You can, however, cut down on the gripes by trying to accommodate special dietary requests or needs, such as those for diabetics or vegetarians. Leave a small space on the reply cards for people to list such needs and then work with your caterer to provide appropriate meals for those guests.

3. If tickets will be sold to your event, start selling them as soon as possible. You can cut down on the work by using a service like TicketHookUps.com to sell your tickets online. TicketHookUps is a free and easy service that lets the event holder create a custom branded event page in just minutes. The attendees can purchase tickets to your event quickly and easily.
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be on your way to a successful event. Happy planning!
