Planning the Perfect Party

Planning a party can be extremely stressful. You want all your guests to enjoy it, and you’re determined to make it a success.

As leading industry experts in providing lighting and PA equipment for events, we like to believe that we know what’s needed to throw the perfect party. That’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide to assist you in planning the party of the year!


Choose a Date

The most important detail of planning a party is deciding on what date you want it to take place.

Parties are usually best taking place on the weekend and in the evening, as this is when most people are likely to be available.

Make sure that the guests you really want to attend are available on this date, as once you book a venue it’ll be hard to change.


Choose a Venue

Where do you want the party to take place? This is an important step in planning the perfect party. You need to make sure that your chosen venue can hold the amount of guests that you’re planning to invite.

Also, think of the location. You don’t want to choose somewhere that’s too far out from where most of your guests live, as they might not be able to travel too far. If this isn’t possible, then consider nearby accommodation for those who may want to stay over, or parking for those who wish to drive.

Make a Guest List and Send Out Invitations

Now that you have a venue sorted, you need to decide who you want to invite to the party. We always recommend jotting down a list before sending out invitations, then you can check it twice before writing them – like a party-planning Santa!

Set up an event on Facebook too, as sometimes it’s easier for people to receive their invitations that way.

Book the Entertainment

This is the fun part! Look around at your options and decide what type of entertainment you want at your party. A lot of people hire a DJ, so that people have the chance to request the music they want. Plus, everyone loves dancing!

Speaking of dancing, why not hire out a dance floor? Yes, that’s actually a thing! Here at Monitor Lighting, we specialise in LED dance floor hire in Essex and surrounding areas. These dance floors will liven up any party, giving it a unique disco vibe.

Once your entertainment is sorted, you can concentrate on the easier things, like decorations! Get your friends involved, and make it a fun part of planning.


But the best tip? Have fun! It’s your party, and you shouldn’t let the planning stress you out too much. If you have any questions regarding our LED dance floors, or any other of our event equipment that’ll get your party started, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
