While the holiday season might seem far away, it’s important to keep holiday party planning top of mind in the next few months. August is the perfect time to get ahead and check planning off your plate. But if you’re still not convinced, here are four reasons why you should start planning your holiday party in August.
1. Better Selection
The earlier you start planning, the less competition you’ll have from other companies vying for the same date, time, or space. Beat the competition and start planning now.
2. More Open Availability
Every year, the most popular dates to hold holiday parties are the three Thursdays before Christmas. That means 2019’s most desirable dates will be December 5th, 12th, and 19th. Put in your bid early and avoid having to settle for a different venue, room, or date.
3. Knock It off Your To-Do List
The sooner you have a venue picked, the sooner you can take a deep breath and relax. Once you’ve put down a deposit and secured a space, you can worry about small details like picking food and beverage options closer to the event.
4. More Time to Focus on the Fun Stuff
If you aren’t scrambling around last minute to find a venue that can fit your group within your budget, you have more time to finalize the details that will make sure the party delights your guests. You can focus on finding a killer DJ or band, buying great decorations, renting a photobooth, and more!
