Why Plan?



Preparation might seem like a hassle, especially when all you are trying to do is make sure the bride gets to the ceremony on time. Yet, it does help to relieve a lot of headaches, and of course there are fewer mishaps along the way, if you just start off with the four letter word: Plan.

I have been planning events ever since I can remember, but it never occurred to me how much went into everything I created. Looking back: every time I was asked to do an event, the first thing I did was organize when I needed to get things done, and who I needed to talk to, to get each task done on time.

Going back, I do know that I left out a lot of things in the planning process. It never seems to fail that there is one item that gets unnoticed or there is lack of communication and everyone just “assumes” it had been completed by someone else. Making sure that there is a clear plan is the first thing I learned for Event Planning. If you have a plan you have a mission. As soon as that mission is complete you are at your event with no flaws. Of course this is the perfect world; things do happen, but planning for the unexpected is the second thing I learned about Event Planning.

Every part of an event has a plan attached to it. It does take time to plan everything out, but in the end you will be saving time and problems if you plan, and plan again, in the beginning of every project.
