Trying to get through the organisation of an event is a stressful time. There is just so much to do. You need to get in touch with vendors, make sure the venue looks perfect, and manage your guest list. So, how do you keep all the stress to a minimum so you can actually enjoy the event in the end? Here are three top tips to beat the stress.
Have your to-do list ready
From the very first day of organisation, you need to have that to-do list. Don’t just mark down a basic list of things to do. Try to organise it by month or week. Have a countdown of the tasks that need to be completed by a certain date, including RSVP dates and deadlines for vendors.
Delegate your tasks
There’s no need to do it all yourself. Get people you trust to do some of the tasks and delegate. This is the way that all the best managers work. You can set up regular meetings with those you’ve delegated to and find out where they are with the event. This helps to nip procrastination in the bud quickly and make sure everything is ready for the event.
Use technology to your advantage
Make sure you have apps and technology that will actually help with the event planning. Opt for it when it comes to ticket purchases and managing your time. Watch out for the technology that will use you instead of you using it. Don’t be pulled into time wasters.
Keep your stress to a minimum when event organising with the above tips. By the day of your event, everything will be done and you can actually enjoy it.
