Some people have more time than money, for others that statement might be more appropriate reversed. Either way, when you’re planning a party your end goal should always be to have FUN!

Here are some quick tips on whether it’s worth doing tasks yourself or if it’s better being delegated to someone else. 

Prepare

Start things off by drafting up what needs to be done and estimate the time and money it will take to complete the tasks if you were to do it yourself. Include things to prepare for the event and what needs to be done on the night. Over estimate the timing and remember to factor in things that can go wrong. You may find that something you had planned to do yourself is better off being handled by someone else. Factor in price, convenience, reliability and how stressful the task is.

Things like invitations, party decorations, goodie bags, food and thank you notes can all be done yourself but plan carefully and be realistic with your time constraints.

Focus On Yourself

Be mindful of your stress and sanity. Organising a party on your own can be a pain and if you have a long list of To-Do’s for the night of your event you may miss out on your own party. We have seen time and time again the party host, or in some cases the bride, trying to do too much on the night of their event and missing out on all the fun.

Remember – It’s a Party!

If dancing is important to you at your party then the host is the best person to get it started. Don’t allow the party to get off to a slow start because you are serving food or drinks or cleaning. Your focus should be having fun not playing butler. Although outsourcing food and other parts of your party may be expensive it may be worth it if it results in you relaxing and not worrying about anything at your own event. Ensuring you outsource tasks to reliable companies / people will have you enjoying your party a whole lot more. You will remember the good time you had over the money you spent in the future when you look back
