We've said it before, and we'll say it again: when you're in the event planning business, things go wrong. It's unavoidable - live events carry uncontrollable factors so there's always an element of potential unpredictability, so we've learnt to take these factors in our stride and think on our feet when those unavoidable mishaps do crop up. But, what about the avoidable ones?
When you’re an event planner, it’s easy to pass off anything that goes wrong as an unavoidable fail, but in reality, that’s just lazy. While failure can be a great opportunity to learn from your mistakes and become better at what you do, repeating the same mistakes over and over is just asking for trouble.
So, with that said, we’ve put together some of the biggest mistakes we’ve made, and then learnt from, so that you can learn from them too! Because when it comes to eventing, knowledge (and preparation!) are definitely power.
