Words of Wisdom

One of my least favorite parts of my job is event planning. Hate, hate, HHHHAAAATTTTEEEE it. But because I have to plan events, or maybe because I was born with common sense, I have learned a thing or two. I would like to pass along my wisdom to the masses (ok the 6 people that read my blog.)

There is an order of planning that goes into an event. Yeah there are things that can be moved around here and there, but there is one thing that never waivers. Never. You secure your location BEFORE you send out invitations. Just thought I would pass along that info. Before, remember that.

Park Reservation problem? Gotta love it :)

Just was amused by a lady's reaction when told she couldn't rent the park for the time she wanted and her saying, but I already sent out all the invitations.

But I did get reamed a new one by a crazy lady at work and that hasn't happened in awhile actually. She was VERY upset about the soccer registration we lost. That we have no prof of ever happening and she has no prof of ever happening, but we lost it.

I can completely relate to this. I also despise planning events.

Oh man! Stories like that make me so glad to be at home and OUT of the working world. People really can be idiots sometimes! Sorry you had to deal with that.

Oh.... and definitely some sound advice you gave out there! I've seen that happen to a family member on their wedding announcements (location of the actual wedding in fact...). Woopsie! :D
