Social events are of different types that include weddings, family reunions, corporate events and a lot more. Hence social event planners need to be creative and knowledgeable enough to understand the essence of each event as there are little but significant differences in the reason as well as steps in every event.
For instance social gatherings like weddings and family reunions at country clubs or outdoor venues, both the events include family members but the purpose is different hence keeping the purpose in view the events must be planned and organised.
And in case of corporate social events, there is always a purpose such as; what is being celebrated, why an event or party is thrown and likewise. After which comes the question of budget into the play.
Many times the host will ask to put on a champagne event on a beer budget and at that time the event planner needs to be creative. Here, instead of saying no, offering other options such as lessening the entertainment and decoration budget to adjust the whole budget shows the creativity of the event planner.
Similarly, in case of weddings which are the most common social events for any event planner. Planning a wedding has some special considerations such as the budget that the family has set, the venue for wedding different occasions, engagement parties hosting, correspondence and invitations, wedding attire, caterer, photography and videography, music, flowers, and a lot more! While each wedding is unique, there are a number of steps that are similar and familiar.
