Common Event Planning Difficulties


Hosting an outdoor event requires a great deal of research and planning; this is especially true if you plan on hosting a large event. You may need to think about factors such as choosing entertainment, selecting catering, and even making sure there’s a sanitary place nearby for your guests to use the bathroom. Along the way, you may encounter some difficulties, but it’s nothing you can’t handle.

Difficulty 1: Selecting a Venue

One of the most difficult aspects of planning a large event is simply choosing a venue. This can be a challenge because, in order to select a venue, you’ll need plenty of notice, but you’ll also need to have an idea of how many people will be in attendance at the event. Otherwise, you run the risk of booking a venue that’s not large enough to accommodate everybody. Worse is that the venue may not be appropriate for the type of event you’d like to host.

To make things easier, consider sending out an unofficial invite to your event (such as one via an e-mail or Facebook page) so you can get an idea of how many people will be in attendance. From there, you’ll have better luck when it comes to choosing an venue.

Difficulty 2: Choosing a Catering Menu

Did you know that, according to as many as 15 million people have food allergies? This can certainly pose a challenge to you when it comes to planning your next event. You want to make sure that there’s plenty of delicious food on the menu for everybody in attendance. However, some common food allergies include nuts and seafood, so you may need to alert your guests ahead of time that these will be on the menu or shy away from them altogether.

Furthermore, keep in mind that even those who don’t have food allergies may be sensitive to eating certain foods. For example, you might want to plan ahead to ensure you have a vegetarian or vegan dish available. If children will be present, then you’ll need to have a children’s catering menu as well for those picky eaters.

Difficulty 3: Renting Porta Potties

Finally, if you’ll be renting out a venue in a public park or somewhere else without easy access to restrooms, then you may also be faced with the challenge of renting out some porta potties for your special occasion. Unfortunately, porta potties seem to have a negative stigma these days, so you’ll want to go out of your way to find porta potties that are sanitary and that don’t feel like porta potties at all. This way, your guests can feel comfortable when nature calls.
