Planning a party doesn’t have to be over the top and expensive, there are a lot of things that you can do under a budget. People often stress out about planning parties and they think that even though you have a budget you will always go over it someway or another and that the party will end up being quite expensive. The main reason for planning a party should be about celebrating something special and having fun on this day and often planning it takes the entire fun of it because people stress too much about the cost. This really isn’t the way parties should go, and people shouldn’t have to deal with anxiety from planning apart, which is why there are tons of ways to throw a budget-friendly party without going over your money limits.
The only thing you should do, is make the math and see how much you can afford to spend on a party, and after that using a couple of tips in order to stay under the budget. Parties shouldnt be about stressing out and spending money senseless, they should be strategically planned so that they work out for everyone.
1. Free Venue
Instead of picking an expensive venue, choose one from someone that you know and see if you can throw the party here. You could even throw the party in your own home and save this money for decorations or party favors. Pick a venue that won’t cost you money and you will see how much money can you save from simply doing this.
2. Make The Food Yourself
There is no reason why you have to spend tons of money on food and catering, often there are tons of things you can do or even buy to save a little money and stay under budget when throwing a party. For example something quick and easy to do is sandwiches, hotdogs, or even hamburgers, people will be happy with the food and you with the low expenses in the party food.
3. Digital Invitations
Another thing that people spend tons of money on are paper invitations, not only are they pricey but they also are a waste of paper,since at the end of the party, people end up throwing them away. Something as easy as sending a digital invitation can save you tons of money. People will even find this very convenient as they can check in their phones for the party date, time and location.
4. Play Your Own Music
Hiring a DJ or a Band to play music at your party can be quite expensive and there is no reason why you can’t play your own music on your speakers. Make a playlist and play only your favorite music, not only will your guests be happy but you can also be proud of the money you will have saved in this aspect of the party.
5. Bring Your Own Booze
People often spend tons of money on booze and shopping for different types of liquor can be expensive. Ask people to bring their own booze and save yourself lots of money in this department, establish that you will provide sodas, waters, and some beverages, but when it comes to liquor ask people to bring their own.
