Event Planning 101

Friday, September 27, 2013
Hi Guys! I'm so happy it's Friday and so happy to be posting again :-) This month makes it 2 years since I've been an official Lifestyle Blogger and this year i wanted to have an event and invite all my supporters :-) I've decided to share some tips because i got a lot of questions about the event.


Plan Early! I got this great idea to have the event in June but then i started to second guess my self. I was wondering how i would afford it , where i would have it , what would be the theme/point of it all . My advice is to first of all erase all doubt, I've learnt that sometimes I'm my biggest obstacle. Yes, there are those people who will intentionally do horrible things to TRY to make you fail , but in the end, it really depends how how much you allow those people to impact your life. Moving on! I really started to plan the event the second week in July! Crazy right? That's a short time to plan , promote and contact people , but i had many sleepless nights and did what i needed to do.

Get Sponsors: I had no idea how i would pay for this event so i was advised to get Sponsors. I contacted a lot of people i had worked with before and also small businesses. I drafted up my Sponsorship Proposals sent them out to the individuals and awaited their response. Be sure to clearly list benefits that will suit each individual.

Have plans all the way to "Z" : Never ever just have 1 plan that you think will be sure. Things can happen, people can and will change their mind last minute so be sure to always be thinking about the "what ifs" and how you can solve them. I held a casting for models to be a part of the Fashion Show but i didn't get the turn out i wanted . Most people who expressed the interest also said they would be at work or school during the time of the casting. I had a great idea to have a "Digital Casting" since everybody is online at some time or the other . The models were requested to send photos and measurements by e-mail , then i made my pick and those photos were later sent to the stores , designer and Make-up artiste so they can have an idea of the girls.


Delegate: I unfortunately did not have all the help i needed , well at least not to 100% but I did have people who advised me what to do and also where and who to call. I got help with the Fashion Show , but if I had more hands on deck with the event , I would not be anticipating later on to finally get my 8 hours of sleep :-( I have to take back all the clothing and accessories from the show to all the Sponsors and i have to distribute the Goodie Bags to all my guests. Hopefully, for my next event , I will be able to pay people to do what i want and just take things from a supervisor standpoint.

This was my first "real world" experience planning an event by myself , i planned events at U.W.I to get a grade , but that was with a group of people . It was a success and i thank all my Sponsors and Supporters . Stay tuned for pictures of the event.

I hope these tips helped you if you are planning on having an event for the first time

  1. What you said made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I dont want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something to maybe get peoples attention? Just like a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what youve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog come to life a little bit.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
    I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same topics
    as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
