If business of any sort needs to be conducted, begin when dessert is finished, or at least served. Make sure that the facility knows that you do not want any bussing (clearing of tables) or coffee served after the program starts, as it can become an irritating distraction and take away from the enjoyment of the program.
Will you be having a cocktail hour? A “Hosted” bar means that drinks are free to the party-goers. If you choose to host the cocktail hour, be prepared to spend about 00 for our sample group of 200 people. Most organization-sponsored events have a ‘No-Host’ bar, in which guests buy their own drinks. It’s appropriate to announce ‘Hosted’, or ‘No-Host’ in the invitation.
Sometimes DJs may not respond right away, because they are working or preoccupied. It’s common that no one would answer, but expect them to return your call within a day. If not, consider others.
The fun has no end; to your surprise these are great for event hire. They supply everything for a fee which is very reasonable. In fact you also have an option to cancel the booking if your event has been postponed. If the cancellation is done with 14 days of notice time then you are not charged else you have to pay a nominal cancellation fee. The cancellation fee is usually 10%25 of the total amount.
Can the Caterer organize beverages? There’s a lot involved in the logistics if you need to do this yourself. First you need to physically purchase the drinks and then transport them to your venue. Then you need somewhere to store them and a method of keeping them cool. On the day you will need staff to serve the drinks along with a bar serving area, plus glasses etc. So if the Caterer doesn’t handle anything to do with the drinks you’ve got a lot more tasks to add to your to-do-list.
As mentioned earlier, most organizations assign only the head table, and the rest of the attendees are left to sit where they wish. Some groups insist on drawing pictures of the tables on a sheet of paper, numbering them, and then assigning people to specific tables.
The person who would rather put their head in a bag full of old peanut butter and rotten apples at the very thought of having to make such a call – she was gone. Poof! Did not exist anymore.
Two weeks prior to the huge day you will certainly have to look at your seating arrangements. You actually should provide each guest a call and verify they are in fact going to. This is the only details you require at this point as you will certainly be calling them once again in a weeks time to run over any type of special nutritional needs.
