Article By: Mandee

Yes, DIY Wedding and Event Decor is full of ideas for weddings but, remember, most of these ideas can also transfer to other events likes rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, birthdays, showers, anniversary parties, fundraising gala, proms, school dances and the like.

Centerpieces, themes, table layouts, buffets, decor ideas can apply to all kinds of events. Just because an idea is written with a wedding reception in mind, doesn’t mean you can’t adapt it for your own event.

Becoming inspired for your event, whatever it is, the one of the main goals here. You may not be able to use all the ideas included for your particular theme or scheme, but you might also be inspired by one of the ideas so you can build it and make it your own.

Look through the category drop down box on the sidebar for the element or theme you are planning to use. Click through to the articles that deal with this/these and prepare to get lots of ideas. You’ll sift through them later and decide if they are something you can use, adapt or chuck.

The point is, in the beginning you need a lot of information to stimulate and get your planning muscles working. The internet has made a world of difference in research. There are billions of pages out there and lots will deal with your main goal.  Find them and use them! Your event will be better off for having done this.

Think about the motivation you have for planning your meetings/events.  Now create your goals and objectives, these will be the emphasis of the production of your meeting or event.

Here are some items to keep in mind:

* Economic Climate

* Staffing

* Budget

* Vendors

* Timeline

* Target Audience

* Contracts

Plan your event keeping the stakeholders advised of the details, you want to keep them engaged in the planning process, since they are interested in the success of the event also.  Take control of the process select a skilled team, delegate and set deadlines for assignments and tasks.  Your goal is to keep people on track in a professional manner; you will express your leadership and earn their respect.  This will also help when encouraging them to strictly adhere to the set deadlines.

Keep in mind you are responsible to the stakeholders/managers so you should be the master communicator while implementing and monitoring the planning process.

… Now that was easy

* Email Blast                                 * Text Message                         * Referral

* Blogs                                             * Fax                                            * Networking

* Email                                            * Press Release                         * Newspaper
