Event planning may be an interesting work to do but it requires hard work, determination and responsibility. There are some rules that should be followed to make your event planning successful. When ever you plan or arrange any event the first thing you should keep in mind that there are certain limits for every kind of event. You might tend to get more color and glamor into a wedding reception or a cruise party but if you plan a business meeting in the same pattern, you would make a disaster. In the same way a child's birthday party does not require a musical band or a DJ. So there are some specific lines for every kind of event which you must follow.
Time: always consider the category of the event before planning further. Usually business meetings are arranged in day time so if you are given the task to arrange a business meeting or any official event keep the day time in mind and plan accordingly and in the same way if you are planning for a birthday party for a child, the time should be early evening. For dance parties and cocktail dinners you need to make arrangements at evening till the function lasts. So there is requirement to be specified about time for any sort of event planning.
Venue: like time the venue is also specified for different sort of events. For example if you are arranging a wedding reception, you need to keep this point in mind that people from every age group are going to attend the party so the place should be comfortable for every one. All the guests can easily arrive on the venue by time.
Food: again about choosing the food the theme and type of the event should be considered. You can not serve fast food or casual food in official meetings as it would spoil the decorum of the event. You need to know what sort of the event is being arranged and how many guests are coming to attend so you can arrange for a good menu.
Décor: of course you have to be particular about décor of the event; you need to arrange props and seating arrangements according to the type of the event.
These all things are considered while event planning and you have to be specific in these things when you plan any event because these all points create a difference between a common person and a professional event planner.
