Handling the event management for wedding party planning can be taxing, but it can also be the most rewarding if done properly. The key to proper management is to be well prepared, for both the expected...and the unexpected! Having several back up plans in place can help avoid headaches and here are a few tips to make the big day run smoothly:

• Choose the right sized venue for your guests. Too small, and you will find that they are cramped. Too large, and the space may appear to be 'empty'.
• Try to avoid organizing your wedding at the same time as other big events in the city since this can lead to problems with hotel availability, higher rates for services and potential traffic jams.
• Plan the meals well ahead of time (including meals for event staff). Find out special dietary requirements such as vegetarian, kosher, halal, gluten-free and coeliac.
• Have a 'loss' threshold, where potentially up to 30 percent of the invitees may not attend. This can effect the size of the venue needed, food ordering and more.
• Handle the event planning in steps and categories, instead of going by 'importance'. You may end up missing or forgetting small steps that get lost in the shuffle.

With these tips, you should be able to plan a wedding that will be relatively smooth. Remember, back up plans are important as well. Back up venues, catering services or food ideas, and more can all save your wedding from disaster.
