Social Event Planning includes various plans, programmes, schedules, meetings to turn customers’ most pivotal day into a unique experience; therefore smiles, waves of laughter, congrats, and happy faces come along at the end of the day as well. People might like to celebrate their birthdays, anniversaries and weddings in a very special way that everybody would want to remember it after ten years. At this point, organizing such a social event can be given as a very serious responsibility to an event planner. Although the scope of social events mostly depend on joy, celebration and happiness, the structuring and organizing the event itself might be very stressful. A good social events planner is expected to take multiple stakeholders’ demands, advice and questions. Especially in the organization of birthday parties and weddings, the number of people who are in charge of making critical decisions increases. Therefore, a good social events planner should be detail oriented while brightening new creative ideas.
Organizing the Joy, Structuring the Happiness: How?
A happy face, an easy-going attitude, and a friendly approach: these are the main must-haves of a very well appreciated social events planner. However, there are some points that you need to pay attention. Here is a quick list:
- Social events would require you to be more emotional in your interaction with your clients. You will be working closely with brides, parents, and couples, therefore, it is better to pay attention to the non-verbal communication channels. If you can interpret facial expressions, bodily gestures, and eye contacts, then you can guarantee full satisfaction.
- Social events can be exhilarating and exciting, but take your tasks as serious as possible. Professionality brings more customers in the future.
- Start the actual planning as soon as you are given the task. Don’t leave the arrangements to the last month or to the week.
- Consider the event as a great project and be a detail oriented person. Use social events planner software if necessary.
