If you have ever been in charge of planning and executing a big party, you know how difficult of a job this can be. You also likely know that there are way more than five ways to improve events. While this is true, there are some tips that seem more important than others. In today’s blog post, Pigsty BBQ would like to share with you some of the most important tips for improving your big event.

Plan Early

By starting the planning process as early as possible, you will give yourself and all those you’ll be working with ample time to prepare. Unforeseen problems seem to be a part of any big event. This is something you can count on. From time to time, you will have to deal with inevitable difficulties. If you wait until the last minute to start planning, these problems can derail your event. However, if you give yourself some leeway, you can comfortably address these issues as they arise.

Set A Budget

Unless you have been explicitly told that you have an unlimited budget, the budget will be one of the primary guiding factors for your event. Before you book food, beverages, entertainment, and a venue, set budget guidelines. This is perhaps the most important tip. Failing to do this can, for example, lead to a situation where your event is held in a stunning venue with no food or entertainment. 

Choose Optimal Dates

When you first begin the planning process and you are scoping out prospective dates, don’t just choose a random date on the calendar. There are two key things to consider when making your selection. Firstly, you want to pick a date that doesn’t seem to conflict with a competing event that may force your guests to make a tough decision. Secondly, booking a venue early and with some flexibility can help save you money in the long run. The longer you wait to book your event, the less flexibility the venue will have in terms of price.

Pick Appropriate Venue

The right venue is essential, and it’s not just about finding a venue that can comfortably fit everyone (though, this is a big part of it). Before making a decision, gauge each potential location and pay particularly close attention to:

  • The parking convenience and capacity
  • The state of the property
  • The condition of the space
  • The flexibility of arrangements
  • The included services and amenities
  • The reputation and reviews

Treat Your Guests To The Best BBQ Catering

As we’ve said before, nothing elevates an event like delicious catering. While your guests will have varying food preferences, the goal is to find the food that is able to please the most. There are few foods that are capable of pleasing the crowd like BBQ. This is especially true when you treat your guests to award-winning BBQ. After all, who doesn’t like BBQ? Vegetarians? True, but that’s only when they go to a BBQ restaurant that lacks non-meat options. Top-notch BBQ caterers should be able to provide a range of high-quality vegetarian-friendly options.

At Pig-Sty BBQ, not only do we make award-winning BBQ every single day, but this is our passion. When we opened our Boynton Beach restaurant, our goal was to bring real, Southern, cafeteria-style BBQ to the area. We don’t think you should have to travel to Texas or the Carolinas to experience this joy. We also don’t think you should only be able to get BBQ at our restaurant. This is why we offer BBQ catering.

Whether it’s for a wedding, birthday party, anniversary, corporate event, or just a Saturday with friends, BBQ catering is sure to make your event a smokin’ success.
