Organizing an exciting and magnificent event can eat out your pocket heavily. A modest budget doesn’t manifest a boring event; unless you use it creatively. Let’s check out the ways to add on to the elegance of your event to gratify your guests in all aspects.
Selection of the Day: Considering your heavy cash outflow for the event, selection of the day plays an imperative role. Hosting an event during a weekday makes sense as Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are the prime days and are available at prime rates especially for weddings and other social gatherings. Moreover, other outdoor vendors like florists, printing companies, food and beverages suppliers are also on higher surcharges on weekends.
Money-saving through homegrown talent: Calling big-named celebrities for the event, fire dancer, recognized band may hit your budget badly. Chuck it. Bring local singer, band, chef or artist. This may sound substandard but turns out to be the big time entertainment for the guests. These lesser-known talented entities are not only economic but also full of talent which they are eager to showcase. These tactics will save your money as well as introduce people to new talent and culture. Lastly, it helps to boost up the homegrown talent.
Cut down your extra expenses creatively: Bring in the items which possess more than one purpose. Using chalkboard for menus and seating chart is highly suggested as it can easily be wiped off and can save your pennies which usually get flushed off in printing these things. Alternate hydrating juices, lemons, artichokes, oranges etc. should also be kept at the bar or soups should be served with the meal. Incorporate the things which can be reused such as reusable water bottles which can also play branded souvenir. Apart from these, there are indeed many creative ways through which one can easily manage the budget for the event economically. Here, you can also think of centerpiece serving dual purpose, like fruits which can later be featured in the meal, sculpture, candles and other lighting. These things create the same impact with half of the cost.
Go digital. Save Paper: High paced technology can easily be manipulated to extend invitation, agendas, event details and menus. This will not only save the printing cost but also the paper. All above, this will simplify the guests experience and enable them to share the key takeaways on their devices with each other.
