Planning any event can seem like a steep hill to climb. Be it birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, reunions, or any occasion that calls for a gathering, the pressure of trying to please your guests while being as efficient as possible can be a bit too much. One of the most important things to be addressed first is deciding whether you’ll throw an intimate or big gathering, so we’ll help you out by listing down things you should consider to help you decide.
This is probably one of the biggest factor when putting together an event, so it’s important to sort out your priorities: do you work around the venue or do you work around the number of guests? By deciding which should come first, you get to have a clear goal in mind. If you’re fixed on a certain venue, then it’s easy to work around the number of guests they can accommodate.
This is completely about your own preference, so it’s something that doesn’t require much decision-making. Do you enjoy celebrating with a big crowd or small groups? Whether you’re throwing your own party or organizing for another person, this is a decision that requires only your gut-feeling to make. After all, what’s the point of exerting your resources and efforts for a party you wouldn’t even enjoy?
Some themes just go better with intimate gathers, and some go great with big gatherings. For example, a rustic theme works better with a small crowd, and a ballroom theme works better for a big crowd.
Finally, ask yourself what your goal is for throwing this party? Do you want to bring your whole family and friends together in one place? Do you want to celebrate with those closest to you? Ultimately, this is the decision that will serve as the key to your choice.
