As we head into the new year, many people start planning ahead for events and parties approaching in 2017, whether they be corporate events, galas, fundraisers, or important life events like birthdays and anniversaries. Planning an event can be overwhelming for some, but planning an event at Hacienda Sarria with our world-renowned event planning specialists ensures that planning your event will be a breeze!
1. Purpose of the event
Knowing the reasoning behind the event is the first step to planning an event. Be very clear when identifying the goal and objective behind this event - a fundraising event, a holiday celebration, a product launch, a birthday - the inability to identify goals and objectives can result in your event not being successful. Hacienda Sarria is an amazing destination for any type of event! Whether it be an official meeting, a birthday celebration, a wedding or just a casual party - we can help you execute it.
2. Guest List
Deciding on the number of people you're inviting is crucial as the venue needs to be able to comfortably fit your guests. The last thing your guests want to experience is feeling cramped or overcrowded. At Hacienda Sarria, we have four gorgeous rooms to choose from with capacity ranging from 400 - 70 people.
Knowing your budget is vital to the success of an event. Categorizing how much you are willing to spend on each aspect of the event will help you identify your overall budget and will give a better idea of what items are your highest priority. At Hacienda Sarria, we know how important it is to stick to your budget and avoid unexpected expenses and our complimentary event planning specialists will work with you to make sure your initial budget includes everything your event requires in order to avoid any surprise expenses closer to the event day.
4. Location, location, location
The next step is deciding where the event will be hosted. This is where it is essential to know how many people you are inviting and whether this will be a sit-down dinner or a casual cocktail party. Once that is decided, it's best to start deciding on a theme for the event that your guests will enjoy. Hacienda Sarria offers an on-site event specialist to work with you and make this process easier for you.
5. Send out the invite
Now is the time to let the world know that you are hosting the best event of the year and the most gorgeous venue in Kitchener-Waterloo - Hacienda Sarria.
