2. Pay great importance to “planning”.
All event organizer are good planners, creatively using their brain to plan the events. However, few of them will write out their ideas. A good planner should organize their project in a paper work to gather information and avoid missing small details. The most important thing is you can pass this paper work to the team member to help run the project smoothly.
3. Wisely plan the budget and reserve some balance for cost overruns.
An amount of balance should be reserve for emergency case or unexpected scenario such as changing flower’s theme, food style, or even changing the venue. All these are cost overrun that could happened in a project.
4. Detail oriented
A good event planner should be able to close their eyes and see all the pictures in mind how the event will be run from the first step of entrance until the last step after the event has ended. Guests will be impress with all little details that you have elaborately put into the event.

Venue is one of the key factor of an event. As an organizer you need to do some research on the location and check on facilities, such as restroom, air conditioner, accessibility, etc., to make sure it is ready to hold an event.
6. Allocate jobs effectively
To avoid unfinished work and missing of details, do not keep all responsibilities under one hand. After planning the project, jobs should be allocate to team members. Document your plan and make it available to the whole team, as a roadmap, to ensure everyone is on the same page.
