Top Secret Planning
Unlike other parties where the guest of honor is consulted about everything from the guest list to the menu, you will need to do this type of Swansea, MA event planning without any guidance. The best way to ensure that the guest of honor has a great time at their own party is to think about the things they like and remember the things that they don’t. Pay attention to the things that they say, the things they are interested in, and the people that matter to them the most. Figure out what type of party will suit their personality the most. If you discover that the guest of honor does not like big crowds or surprises, you might have to shift your plans. Modifying a guest list from 200 down to 50 might seem like a big challenge, but it could be easier than you think.
Secure the Venue
Once you’re sure how many people will be attending and have a budget ready to go, you can reserve space at our venue. Depending on the time of year, you might want to make reservations weeks or months in advance. The spring season is popular for a wedding reception in Swansea and the surrounding area, so try to pick either a weekday or work with the venue for other ways to ensure professional event planning space for your party. As soon as the date is settled and the deposit is placed on the venue, you can start figuring out how you want to go about inviting everyone without the guest of honor finding out what you are doing.
Pick a Theme
Don’t let all of that research about the guest of honor go to waste. Choose a party theme that they will enjoy and incorporate it into everything from the decorations to the custom cake. If you are going to send out invitations it needs to be clear that they have to hide them where the guest of honor can’t see them. Start by letting close friends know first and then tell others closer to the date if you are worried about someone giving it away by accident – or on purpose. You could also call or email each person individually. Never post anything on social media, as there is always a chance that the guest of honor will accidentally be tagged in the conversation.
Confirm Everything at the Venue
Anything you do for the party should be discussed and confirmed with the venue ahead of time to make sure everything is okayed and approved. For example, hiring a DJ or a band, cake baker, or any other outside vendors will usually require an insurance policy to protect the venue from any liability. Ask for a list of pre-vetted and approved vendors to save time, especially if you are on a time crunch. Because Venus de Milo works with a lot of planners for a wedding reception in Swansea, we have a lot of contacts with professional vendors in the area, and we can help you find excellent options for your party.
