Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Planning a social event can be challenging and rewarding. It takes many different steps to make sure everything is in place and will work out as intended. From parties, ceremonies, weddings, etc. planning is the most important key. There are many different details to consider; however there are three I believe are most important. When planning a social event it is imperative to have a guest list, place to host the event, and choosing activities that will take place.

Step 1: Guest list

The first step in planning a social event is the guest list. The reason this is so important is because the planner needs to know how many people to accommodate. The guest list is the foundation for the rest of the steps in planning. The planner has to know how big of a place they will need to have the event, how much food to provide, how many chairs to have and the list goes on and on. There should be a rough draft list made, a final guest list, and the guests should have to RSVP so that the planner knows exactly what direction they are going with the event. Without a guest list the event could be disastrous.

Second Step: Location, Location, Location!

The second step in planning a social event is the picking the right location. This is important for many reasons. For example, if hosting a wedding the planner should check to see what season the wedding will be held because weather could affect an outdoor location. Size is important because there needs to enough space to accommodate guests comfortably. There’s nothing worse than having an overcrowded event where people can’t enjoy themselves. Guests always remember the bad things first, and this will definitely be discussed and frowned upon by guests!

Third Step: Activities/Food

The third step in planning a social event is choosing activities that will take place and the right amount of food. This is important because you don’t want to bore the guests or have an unorganized event. The planner should make an itinerary for how the entire event will go and schedule a time for each activity. For example, if planning a baby shower the planner should set a time limit for games, choose the time the guests will eat, what time the gifts will be opened etc. The planner needs to make sure they have enough food to make sure each guests has at least a serving. Having over the amount needed is the smartest option because more is always better. Without a step-by-step list of how the event will happen and the right amount of food could lead to awful event.

Get the job done!

In conclusion planning a social event is not the easiest job, but if done correctly if can be entertaining and rewarding. Choosing the right place, the activities and food, and making a guest list will all contribute to a successful event. Failing to complete these step could lead to a horrible and embarrassing event.
