Plan Your 2015 Event Early To Avoid Disappointment
You may be thinking, it’s only July, why would I need to be planning for 2015? But think of it this way, the school holidays are upon us which means 6 weeks of trying to juggle work and the children, and before you know it, it will be September which means its downhill all the way to Christmas. If you have an event which you wish to take place in 2015, such as a wedding, a party or perhaps a corporate event for work, you really need to start thinking about getting the basics booked up. 2015 sees a number of large sporting events including the England Rugby World Cup and the NBA Global Games in London, so events companies will be busy organising celebratory events and availability may be limited.
First of all, you need to choose your location. Many hotels and function rooms will be booked up months in advance – particularly during the summer months or in the run up to Christmas. Hiring a winter marquee hire will give you some valuable added flexibility, after all if you have the perfect location but the room is simply not big enough, the marquee can make the venue a viable option. Don’t forget marquees can often also be added on to provide a temporary extension of an existing room.
Once you’ve booked the venue, it can be a good idea to book the caterer too. Reputable caterers will already have bookings in place for 2015, so have a think about the type of food which would be most appropriate for your event, and starting getting some quotes. It might also be worth asking if the caterers can provide serving staff too – especially if you are hosting a sit down meal or if you wish canapés to be offered to guests on arrival.
Popular entertainers and other suppliers will no doubt also be in great demand, so if you have a particular band or DJ which you wish to perform at your party, make sure you get your booking in well in advance! Items such as decorations and flowers can be left until closer to the big day, but the more you can organise in advance, the less worry and stress you should have in in the run up to the event.
