We can all agree to the fact that parties are absolute fun. Who doesn’t want to come together with friends and family and have an absolute blast on a weekend?
We all love to work hard through the week, but when it comes to the weekend, it’s best to leave work and the stress of professional life behind. So, if you’re planning to throw a party at a nightclub, but don’t know where to start, read below for the perfect party planning tips.
You’ll find an exhaustive checklist of the essential steps you can take to host a great event at a nightclub. Let go of stress and get the party started with these tips.
Choose the Date
Select a date tentatively, but don’t get fixated on a single day. You must be flexible so as to allow your guests as much room as possible. You must ensure that your most, if not all, of your guests are available on the final date of the party. If you have a preferred venue to party, you may want to check availability for the dates beforehand so that you can proceed with your party plans effectively.
Set a Theme
Let’s face it: themed parties are absolutely LIT. Who doesn’t want to look at people with creative and funny costumes dancing away to glory? Consult with your gang and decide on a theme that everybody would be enthusiastic about. Once you’ve decided on a theme, check with the venue to intimate them about the preparations.
Prepare the Guestlist
This is the most exciting part of planning a party. Start by preparing a guestlist for the people you want to invite to the party. Make sure that you convey the idea to every invitee beforehand, so that you can ascertain the turnaround. Remember that not all people you invite would show up to the party, so it’s best you get a clear heads up from them well before the date of the party.
Set a Budget
This may not be the most interesting part of organizing a party, but it’s essential nonetheless. Be realistic while setting a budget, consider all the things that’ll happen at the party; whether you want to splurge on a diverse food platter, or want your guests to enjoy premium drinks and champagne. Determine the budget accordingly and leave nothing to chance.
If you’re planning to throw the party with a pooled budget, check with everyone involved so that you all are on the same page. At the end of the day, you don’t want any surprises on this one. And remember to factor in taxes and service charge before you stamp on the final figure.
Narrow Down on a Venue
The venue of any celebration is perhaps the biggest factor that plays a part in the success or failure of your party. Choose the venue of your gig carefully. You don’t want your guests to leave the party feeling it was a downer.
Keep in mind the number of guests you want to invite and the activities. Selecting a great nightclub or discotheque is the key to unlock the door to a LIT party. Whether you want to treat your crew to a dance bar, or a luxury nightclub, check that everyone is comfortable and at ease with the venue.
You also need to ensure that the venue is easily accessible by all the guests at your party. The safest place to host a party is downtown, where not only you’ll find a number of establishments for your party, but also be safe when returning back to home.
Consult with Club Manager
From photo sessions to live music, whatever you want in your party, communicate them to the manager of the fixture. Intimating the club manager is much more beneficial than trying to figure out the best possible combinations yourself. Your party hosts should be entertained and encouraged during the party, and so it’s wise to get the club on-board with whatever you’re planning to avoid last minute hassles.
Now that you’ve done your bit and the day of the party has arrived, you need to check-up on the people you’ve invited. Make sure that everyone is in sync with your plans and the theme, if any.
As a precaution, ask everyone to take a cab or share a ride to arrive at the venue, especially if there are drinks on the menu. You don’t want to drive yourself after a night of boozing and dancing, nor should the rest of the people. Your party will truly be a memorable affair when everyone enjoys it responsibly and safely.
