Event Blueprints – providing a guide to planning | Event Blueprints Part 1

This post is part 1 of the Event Blueprints Series.

Planning an event can be very difficult if you’ve never done it or have no idea to begin.

An event blueprint, whether you find one online or hire an event planner to make one tailored to your needs, can help guide you on your journey.

Essentially an event blueprint is a road map that points out the essential parts of the event that need to be booked, bought, or arranged, and it provides a tentative timeline for each item to be completed. They often also can include a tentative budget guide.

When you have an event planner make one for you, they usually handle it similarly to planning the event for you. They’ll ask you questions and get a feel for what your visions and needs are.

Why should you use an event blueprint?

Only it makes it easier for you. – An instruction manual that can always be personalized helps when you don’t know what to do.

It’s a form of time management. It reduces the time you will spend fumbling about, making mistakes, forgetting things, and depending on the type of blueprint, can have examples or options to help you further. It can also include a timeline, whether completed or ready to have dates added, and a checklist.

It helps you budget – Even if you choose to forgo, an event budget is included. Knowing the many aspects of the event that needs to be completed can help you allocate funds as necessary and determine an undetermined amount.

Event blueprints are a great tool to use if you are a DIY-er or don’t have it in your budget to pay a planner for full use.
