When you invest time and effort into an event, your hope is that guests will enjoy it and walk away talking about the event for days to come. Hosts typically want to know:
How do you make an event memorable?
The best advice we have for you is: know your audience. Once you know your audience and know what they like, it’s easy to plan an event that will resonate with them and have them heading home reliving the best moments of the night. Your guests will remember the venue and the food, they will remember what some of the other guests wore. They will definitely remember if something goes wrong. But what you are trying to accomplish is the memory of a positive experience – of a great event. Entertainment will have the biggest impact! The food may be a little bland or service a little slow, but if you wow them with a performance that they get immersed in, that is the memory they will walk away with. A roving performer, say a magician is a great way to entertain guests while also giving them the freedom to mingle and eat or drink. It’s a nice way to ensure conversations don’t go stagnant while also letting guests flexibility. A stage show can be nice to take the pressure of your guests to come up with funny stories to share. The pressure is no longer on the guests to entertain each other. They can sit back and watch the show you have planned. It could be a variety act, or music. Comedy, mentalists and ventriloquists are also popular.
