Event Planning Online In the UK

If you have an event coming up in the UK that you need to organise then the easiest way to achieve this would be to do as much of your event planning online as possible. Unless you are a naturally organised person or an event planner then just the thought of arranging your upcoming event could give you palpitations but planning your event online doesn’t have to be stressful if you get your ideas together.

Planning your event online can save a lot of time and money especially if the event you are organising is not local to where you live or work. Instead of ringing around lots of companies you can e-mail them your questions and rather than travelling around the country meeting suppliers and checking out venues most of the legwork involved in planning your event can be done online for free.

It will obviously depend on the type of event that you are organising but generally the larger the event the longer the planning process but as soon as you have agreed your date for the event then one of the first things you need to book is the venue. If you are planning to hold your event in a hotel or conference centre then this is ideal for planning online as most will have a website and will provide pictures of the venue and often have brochures that you can download and some will also give prices online enabling you to create a short list of suitable venues to view.

It has become very popular to dress up the room by using chair covers. This can make a huge difference to the look of a room and is another part of your event planning that can be done online. There are companies that will deliver the chair covers to you nationwide and you simply return them after the event and all of this can be arranged online.

If you are decorating the venue yourself you can order most of the table decorations online such as table confetti, diamante sprinkles and favours. If you are having balloon decorations then you can also order balloons, ribbons and weights online too and some companies will provide you with a diy kit that contains all of the components for your decorations and some even include detailed instructions. These are also available with or without helium in case you don’t have a helium supplier.

It has become recently popular to have a large glass of sweets as a centrepiece for tables and these can double up as decorations and favours. The most popular sweets to use are retro ones such as dolly mixtures, sherbert flying saucers and foam sweets like shrimps and bananas. There are several companies that you can purchase the sweets from online and some also sell or hire out the glasses as well.

Doing a large part of your event planning online gives you a much wider choice, makes it easier to compare prices and helping you to stick to your budget. Planning your event online also saves you a great deal of time leaving you more time to source the few things that you need to do locally.

I agree with Steve, the internet has made it possible to plan events, just by typing on your keyboard, from staffing to ordering all the supplies.. and that should help save some money.

Some of the planning has to be local but there is still so much time and money to be saved by organising and ordering supplies online

It's amazing all the stuff we can do online these days. Not sure what we did before the Internet. I especially liked your suggestion to have treats as the centerpieces on the tables. Takes care of two issues at once.

Exactly Steve and when so many of us are looking to save money wherever we can, in my opinion, this is a perfect solution

I think the same counts for most of the world, not just the UK, that it is easier to plan and organize an event online. Thanks for good tips :)

This is probably very true and if time allows you can also order things from other other countries that aren't available where you live.
