When you're deep in the excitement of planning a new event, sometimes the last thing you want to have to think about is the B word... Budget. We get it: Nothing puts a damper on big dreams, big ideas, and big plans quite like a limited budget, but there's no denying that developing a budget (and then sticking to it!) is key to having a successful event. After all, you don't want to book a huge act to perform, only to find that you've blown the budget and now don't have anything left to spend on things like a venue and food - definite Event Must-Haves
