4 Tips To Hosting an Event On a Budget

Hosting events are fun. As people are always looking for ways to provide guests with memorable experiences, you can expect to find a host of activities. A lot of time and planning goes into these events especially when there are budget constraints and event organisers let their creativity run wild as they find the most cost effective ways to host events.

We have put together a list of some of the most cost effective ways when it comes to event hosting:

#1 Decorations For The Event

The biggest advantage of having DIY Decor at your event is that you can choose exactly what you want for your event, how you want it made and still save a budget left  instead of hiring the decor. As most places cost a fair amount when it comes to hiring, making the decor can also be turned into a social activity with your friends and family in preparation for the event.

#2 Photography For The Event

If this isn’t within your budget, you can make your own DIY photo booth by getting photo booth software such as GetSnappic installed on your ipad. You can then set up a station at your event where guests can take pictures.



#3 Deciding On Food

This is a large part of any event organisers budget. Going with finger foods or, if you feel inclined to do so, have a bring and share.This provides you the opportunity to make a few platters and you can offer your guests a much wider variety of items throughout the course of the evening.

#4 Put Your Own Playlist Together

Hiring a band or DJ for your event can also be a costly factor. If you’re looking to shave some money off the budget, spend some time putting your own playlist together. When guests confirm their attendance, this is the perfect opportunity to request a song from them. This also ensures you’re able to meet the tastes of all your guests as they have been apart of the selection process of the music for the night.

These are just four ways in which you can plan an event on a tight budget. This largely affects the type and size of the event you’re hosting. Let those creative juices flow and start planning your next event.
