People organizing an event for the first time need to have a checklist of things to do. Organizing an event is no easy task, and requires effort, time, and energy. If you do not have a plan in place, you will exhaust and frustrate yourself. You can decrease the stress of planning an event by creating a checklist, consisting of the following tasks:
Set a Budget
Setting a budget is of primary importance. Your budget should contain all of the possible expenses you will need to pay before, during, and after the event. You should also add some additional money for unexpected expenses that may arise.
Create a Guest List
It is wise book a venue before you send out invitations to people to attend your event. You need to estimate the number of people that may attend the event and the space you will need to occupy them all. Do this several months before the planned event date. Once you have a rough idea of the number of guests, you can book a venue.
Rent an ATM Machine
Most people do not carry several wads of cash with them. They prefer to carry a debit card or credit card. It is highly recommended to give people attending your event access to an ATM machine. You need to invest in a reliable ATM machine from a trustworthy and reputable ATM provider. Based on the number of ATM machines you need rent for the event, the ATM provider can give you a quote. You also need to make sure the ATM provider takes responsibility for replenishing the ATM machine with cash during the event.
Decorate the Venue
Before decorating the event space, choose your color schemes, décor, and where you want to place the tables, chairs, and ATM machines that you have rented for the event.
