Gala Dinner Tips and Ideas
Organising a huge event such as a gala dinner can be more than just a bit stressful. The best way to sidestep all the potential pain of a manic event is to plan things in advance as thoroughly as possible. Here are a few tips:
- From the seating plans to the timings of different courses, you'll want things to run with an almost military precision. Having a rehearsal, even if it's only a theoretical one, is a good way to ensure that the event gets worked out in plenty of detail.
- The type of food being served can make a big difference to how seamless the event itself is. The more complicated the courses are, the easier it is for timings to go wrong and delays to happen, so speak to your catering staff if you want to try and proof your gala dinner from any major mistakes.
- Have you considered a banquet hall for your choice of venue? The ambiance of the venue itself can really lift people's spirits and get your event off to a good start.
- Make sure that everyone has a clear idea of what purpose this gala dinner has been organised for. Your invites, promotional materials and the event itself should given everyone a very concise understanding of what the whole thing is for.
