Planning parties is always a greater delight than attending one, for you can be left with the satisfaction of happy guests thanking you for a wonderful night when they leave one by one. However, this also means you can be left very exasperated if you plan the party wrong, which is why planning is always key to ensuring the success of a party, and personal satisfaction. Below are some of the main mistakes you would want to avoid making:Planning parties is always a greater delight than attending one, for you can be left with the satisfaction of happy guests thanking you for a wonderful night when they leave one by one. However, this also means you can be left very exasperated if you plan the party wrong, which is why planning is always key to ensuring the success of a party, and personal satisfaction. Below are some of the main mistakes you would want to avoid making: 

• Not handing out invitations and RSVPs – making sure of how many guests will be attending your party will allow you to decide whether you would need a nice wedding venue or something more modest. The biggest mistake you can make is not being aware of how many people will be attending (or worse, who actually attends). Always make sure to send out invitations – so that you won’t be leaving anyone out – and to get the guests to RSVP by a certain date. This will ensure that you won’t waste money unnecessarily on food, venues, services, etc. 

• Not focusing on the specifics of the party room – no matter whether you rent out a huge venue for your party or simply hold it in your home, you will need to make sure that the layout of furniture and the like does not impede the flow of the party. To begin with, makes sure that food and drinks are located in a visible broad location – or you will have guests starving because they do not know where the food is, or guests crammed into a small space to get to the food. The dance floor must be wide enough to allow people to dance without unnecessarily butting into each other. You also do not want narrow corridors that impede movement or create bottlenecks. It is also ideal to look into separate spaces for guests who want a break (a balcony or some other way to get outside for a breath of fresh air is a good idea) or a smoke.

• Being too busy during the party – by the time the party starts, you want to make sure that everything is ready. If you won’t be in time, you not only risk making a bad impression, but you also won’t be able to get around introducing people – especially if guests are not mutual friends. Furthermore, if you end up being too busy during the party because you have decided on foods or drinks that take too long and are too specific to prepare, you won’t be able to have fun! Enlist help from your friends and family, and make sure you can have fun too.
