1. Pick a location

There’s a reason why this should be the first one to consider. The location you pick will tell how many people it can hold, meaning how many guests you can invite. It also tells about the program you will have and the activities you can prepare. Determining the location will also help the guests dress for it, whether it be indoors, outdoors, in your apartment, a restaurant, etc.

2. Pick a theme

This is a major consideration when you plan the decorations for the party. It will also tell the guests what they should wear and what they can bring if they need to. Imagine having a 90’s themed party but people from the ‘60s and ‘70s came. You need to specify your theme and not just say “Old School. So if it’s a slumber party you’re hosting, or a costume party, or a bikini party, make a good and specific theme.

3. Determine your budget

How much are you willing to go for and what are your limits? Set a minimum and maximum for your budget so you know where you stand and follow it. If you are budgeting with your siblings or your friends, mention this and all of you should agree on a budget.

4. Choose the date and time

Select a couple of dates which you can narrow down to know when most of your guests will be able to attend. If you are planning a party that falls on a holiday, make sure to check with local schedules and events or schedule your party before or after the holiday so most of them can attend. Remember that most people go on trips during the holidays. Set a specific time to start the party. It’s always better if you give guests an earlier time starting time especially if you know them to be late in parties. This will allow you to start and the party on time. Nobody wants to end at 2 am because the party started at 10 pm due to the no-show of guests at the agreed starting time.

5. Ready the invitations

But first, you need to have a list of all the people you want to attend. Make the invitations or have them made and send them to the people in the guest list. You can also email them your invitations if you want to save more money and the environment. Whatever form your invitation is, make sure you have the date, time, location, contact details, and of course don’t forget the event name. The contact details are particularly important if you are not sending an email because the guest can let you know if they are attending or not. Send them in advance at least a week before the event so they can prepare for it. If it is a wedding, send the invitations months ahead.
