5. BE PATIENT
Not everything is going to go right first time and it’s a given that some things will test your patience! A lot goes into planning an event but have faith that everything will run like clockwork. If all else fails get someone to do the job for you (hint, hint).
4. WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN
This may seem obvious but its importance must not be underestimated! Forgetting things happens to the best of us, especially when there is a lot going on. Jotting things down is really helpful, not only does it aid in remembering, it also helps you visualise what’s going on. It will only take a few extra minutes and could potentially save you a lot of time, after all there is nothing worse than convincing yourself you will not forget something as its so important and then not being able to remember it when the time comes. Just make sure you don’t forget where you put your jotter!
3. DON’T TURN DOWN HELP
When there is a lot lying on an event going perfectly, you can be reluctant to accept help from people in the fear that they may interfere with your plans. However, it is important that you don’t try to do everything on your own. With smaller events it may be possible to do everything yourself but it will be much more fun if you recruit a friend or family member to help you out.
2. GIVE YOURSELF SUFFICIENT TIME
Remember the phrase 'time is of the essence'? Well, when you're planning an event, it really is! The worst thing you could possibly do is leave everything till last minute! Giving yourself as much time as possible will reduce stress in the long run for everybody involved.
