What Makes a Private Event Memorable?
Private events have a clear purpose. Whether a fundraising luncheon or an anniversary dinner, each private event needs to be focused, entertaining, and positive.
To make your private event memorable, book entertainment specific to your guest list. Comedians, musicians, or DJs can customize entertainment material that is suitable for all your guests to enjoy.
No matter the reason for your private event, keep the messaging upbeat and positive.
Create the perfect atmosphere by incorporating decorative elements in keeping with the theme of your event.
Giveaways like t-shirts, goodie bags, and water bottles will keep the event in your guests’ minds long after the event is over.
Make sure your event’s schedule includes time for your guests to network and socialize.
Planning Your Private Event
The key to a memorable private event is proper planning. Here are some steps planners use to ensure a successful event.
- Define Objectives
- The Guest List
- Pick the Venue
- Choose the Date
1. Define Objectives
No matter the nature of the event, define what you are hoping to achieve by having it. It could be simple, like hosting a perfect 50th-anniversary party for your grandparents, or more targeted, such as raising $5,000 for a local charity.
2. The Guest List
Create your first draft of the guest list to get an idea of how large the venue should be. Don’t forget to add speakers and entertainers to the list if you plan to allow them to dine at the event.
3. Pick the Venue
The venue should match the nature of your event. Venue Bouchon in Taneytown, MD, is equally suitable for relaxed, informal gatherings and larger-scale events.
4. Choose the Date
The trickiest part of private event planning is usually choosing the date. Make sure the event isn’t conflicting with busy travel times or holidays.
Although you can send “save the date” notifications up to six months before the event, we recommend sending an official invitation about a month before the scheduled date.
Choose your entertainment based on the event’s purpose and target audience. Once you’ve decided, book it far enough in advance to guarantee event availability.
