Choosing an event date can be tricky. There are so many things to consider; holidays, guest availability, family conflicts and more. Here are three secrets to securing your event date that could save you time, stress and money.
1. Discover if your special event date falls on a holiday, convention, or large local event that would cause conflicts with traffic and hotel availability. There’s nothing wrong with celebrating on a holiday but consider your important guests may have other obligations.
2. Last minute bookings can save you money. Most people book their events six months or more in advance. Calling catering halls for open dates two months before your desired date can give you some bargaining power. You can save you up to 25 percent. That’s quite a bit of savings.
3. If you’re having your event on a weekend, consider any day but Saturday. While Saturday may seem most convenient, Friday night and Sunday are general less expensive by quite a bit over a Saturday event. And, if you’re booking last minute, it’s likely that Saturday is already gone. Save yourself some money and book a Friday or Sunday event time.
