In this time and age, anything that comes to mind can become an occasion for many. Anyone can plan any occasion that calls for celebration as all one would need is a plan: a venue, the best catering service, a bar for drinks, and guests most of all. But when it comes to occasions, one would usually ask: What makes the whole thing grand?
For your enlightenment, here are some of the things that may answer the question.
The Occasion Itself
When a celebration is due to begin, people often ask others, “What’s the Occasion?”. Depending on the cause for celebration, the occasion itself can be a key component in making it grand.
Notable examples of grand occasions are weddings, a debutante’s coming-of-age, a couple’s anniversary celebration, a graduation party, and others of the sort.
If you’re planning a grand celebration of any kind, one of the key components in making that happen is to find a venue that fits in with the occasion’s standards and aesthetics. Not only that, the venue also has to be in tune with the incoming number of guests confirmed to be attending and their convenience.
The People Involved
Another thing that makes an occasion grand is the people involved in said occasion. If it weren’t for them, the occasion or any celebration related to it wouldn’t push through.
Many would hire professionals as well to help out with the planning, supervise the process upon executing, and for extra manpower during the occasion itself. Some examples of these include party planners, photographers, caterers, bartenders, and even entertainers such as musicians.
The people involved in the planning process also decide on the expenses that they would need to cover, which brings us to our next point in this article.
One of the most important things that make any occasion as grand as possible is the costs for the expenses that would need to be covered by the planners. The act of planning for any occasion may be easy but executing it is a different story.
Expenses such as reservation for the venue, food and beverages, amenities and accommodations, and even the attires to be worn by certain celebrants. A grand occasion is definitely not cheap but it all depends on the plan that’s to be implemented and followed.
The costs are not just limited to the material aspects of the occasion but they also apply to the people that were hired for the occasion. Once they have rendered their services, compensation for them is expected from the planner.
The Flow of the Planned Program
This serves as the pinnacle of any occasion. Once everything has been set in stone and executed on the scheduled day, it’s time to observe the flow of the entire program. Why this makes any occasion grand is that every detail must be synchronized and well-coordinated and, therefore, executed with utmost precision.
Usually, in occasions like a couple’s silver wedding anniversary, there would be key moments in the flow that are seen as essential and, in some cases, traditional such as the renewal of vows in this case. Ultimately, how a program for any occasion should go is a sure way to tell if an occasion is truly a grand one.
