Planning an event can be exciting and fun, but it can also be very challenging. Every event is unique and every host has different needs and desires. Some hosts are extremely picky and others are more laid back. However, no matter the event type and size and the host you are working with, it still up to the event planner to plan an event well.
Common event planning mistakes usually include:
Not properly allocating event resources or skills
Over advertising your event—make sure you know where your target audience hangs out so you have a better reach
No backup plan—especially for outdoor events that
Not following up with potential attendees
A less than desirable menu or terrible event catering service
In appropriate entertainment for event purpose and audience
