Advice for Stress-Free Event Planning
Pam McCarthy of Five Star Events shares quick tips for staying sane amid the chaos
Life is all about learning to accept the
things you can’t control, and so is event planning. If you’re planning one right now, you might suffer a miniature panic attack just imagining some worst-case, uncontrollable scenarios: flight delayed; “Where’s my driver?”; salmonella; flash flood. There are countless things to worry about that you don’t even know you should worry about. And, worrying aside, there’s not much you can do about it.
But despair not. No event will ever sail by without a hitch, but you can learn to manage the mistakes. What’s important is that you hide your errors from your guests. You know you can’t control everything, but they don’t. With that in mind, Pam McCarthy returns with advice on the problems that are in your control.
