Here’s the dilemma: You need to plan an event, but you have no background in event planning. Somehow this duty has been thrust upon your shoulders. Sometimes it’s a work requirement and sometimes it’s to celebrate family or friends. …relax. Howl at the Moon in Pittsburgh is here to help!
1. Knowing your guests and group size
How large of a party are you planning? Knowing your guest count is one of the most important elements in securing a venue or space for your event. Once you know the count, you can get an idea of which space size is needed. Think about what they like, and don’t be afraid of trying some new. It is always easy to get on the repeat booking process or go to where they went before, but there is always an aspect of excitement when you add an element of something new, such as a team building activity or a live music show.
2. Set a comfortable budget
Knowing what you are comfortable with to start with for budget can help make choosing a venue and options a breeze. It’s an important element in planning a private event so don’t be afraid to share it. When you know how much you are willing to spend, a planner can direct you what can work best. Whether a budget is big or small, there’s likely always a setup that may work. If you’re working with a smaller budget, consider planning the event on a weeknight (Sunday through Wednesday), or if you have some room for extras there’s always creative features to add on: S’mores roasting station, custom koozies, photo booths, ice sculpture and more.
