Planning A Party… and You Are Short On Time?

October 5, 2007

I’m sure this does not apply to you, but there are people out there who wait for the last minute to find a venue and

vendors (photographer, catering, entertainment, officiant etc)  That being said, don’t fret!  You just have to think out of the

box!  And it’s not a terribly difficult dilemma.  Here are some tips for you last minute revelers:

1. Almost every venue has an events booked on Saturdays from now till 2012. Once you come to this realization you will start saving money.

2. Almost every venue will have availability and  a reduced fee on every day except Saturday.

3. So book your event on a Friday or Sunday or even Thursday. Get creative and look for Holidays that land on a Friday (Veterans day, Independence day falls on a Friday) or a Monday (Presidents day, Labor/Memorial day, Martin Luther King Day).  No work on a Friday means you just turned your Friday night into a Saturday night!

4.  Vendors will almost always accept a reduced fee on “Off Days”. Don’t expect them to disclose this. Ask them.
