How To Plan A Luxurious Event
Life is full of celebrations and important milestones, and it is important that we do not let too many of them pass us by without some sort of celebration.
Sometimes, all that is needed is a small gathering of close family members and friends, while others call for a touch more extravagance. When you are planning an event which you want people to remember for all the right reasons, you need to start planning as early as possible and to pay attention to even the smallest details.
It does not matter if you are planning a wedding, birthday party, family reunion, or graduation celebration; here are some of the most important elements to consider when planning a luxury event.
Choosing the venue
Arguably, the most important decision you will make when planning a luxurious event is where to hold it. To choose the venue for your event, you need to consider your audience and what you want to take place during the event, i.e., food, drink, entertainment.
You should get a firm idea of how many guests will be attending so you can find a venue of the right size, in a convenient location, and that has the right facilities such as onsite parking. You do not necessarily have to spend a lot of money on the venue hire, as even the simplest space can be made luxurious with the right setup.
Hiring a caterer
Often, what guests remember of an event is the quality of the food served. No matter where you are located, there will be numerous food catering companies to choose from. Luxurious events often involve sit down dinners with multiple courses, but buffets can also work well if you present it in the right way.
Before committing to a caterer, be sure to ask for recommendations from trusted people and always check their online reputation. Once you have hired a caterer, it is important to taste the menu before the date to ensure it meets your standards.
Hiring a bartender
A professional Event Bartender is a great move when planning a luxury event.
Whether they bring their own mobile bar with them or manage a bar that is already in situ, a professional bartender will ensure that your guests receive efficient, safe, and energetic service. Professional bartenders often offer a range of packages, including traditional favorites and premium cocktails with fresh fruit to velvety after-dinner coffees and hot chocolate.
Decorating the venue
The way you decorate the venue will make or break your luxury event, so it is essential to come up with a cohesive theme. Click here for some inspiration for your event’s theme. At the very least, you should choose two or three colors that complement each other and tie all your elements into this color scheme.
You might want to display decorations on the walls and across the ceiling, such as drapes and lighting, but you should also ensure that tables make a big impact. Table linens, chairs, place settings, cutlery, crockery, centerpieces, wine glasses, and coffee mugs should look beautiful to show your guests how much effort has gone into the fine details.
