It's your daughter's Sweet 16, and you want her special day to be memorable. You are in the process of planning her a dream party, and you will spare no expense. You want a DJ, specialty food, and an array of entertainment, but you really don't know where to start in bringing your plan together. That is when you leave it to a specialized event planner who not only can make your ideas come to fruition, they can also give you more ideas and make the event one to remember. Here's how.
Finding the Perfect Venue
Everything starts when you nail down a venue, so you can decide on a theme and what will go where. Hiring a good event coordinator allows you to share what your needs are, so she can start tracking the perfect location for the party. Many coordinators work closely with event production companies who will be able to come in and easily set up the right lighting, seating, and sound for the Sweet 16 party. Event production services include making sure to give guests that wow factor that will have them talking about the party for years to come. Once the venue is in place, production and coordination can get started.
Access to Ideas and Inspiration
An event coordinator who specializes in event production services more than most likely has a little black book full of contacts who can bring a lot to the table. Florists, designers, decorators are all something you'll need to really make the party stand out. And most importantly, don't forget the cake. Choose a coordinator or party planner who has access to only the best pros in the business and knows how to communicate effectively. If you want a princess-themed party, look at past parties the company has put together. You can also take inspiration from some of your child's favorite singers or movie stars to create a theme that they will truly enjoy.
Coordination is Key
In order to make everything fall into place, by the deadline and before guests arrive, it takes more than just one person to bring it all together. A party of 100 or more teenagers and adults will take coordination and careful calculation to be sure the party goes off without a hitch. Your event coordinator will need to have her checklist in place while not missing a beat the entire time. It takes a lot to have a large event with entertainment to flow seamlessly. That is why you leave it to the pros.
Planning a special party or event for your child or other family member is a big deal. It will take time and money to make everything run smoothly and deliver lasting memories. A party planner or coordinator can simplify the process and make it happen. The end result will be a memory to last a lifetime.
