The best events are those that happen without a hitch! Events are all about planning everything perfectly, down to the last detail. The key to success is planning an event that guarantees maximum fun with minimal fuss. This is every event planner’s dream and a good deal of foresight is needed to make sure that the people you invite are enjoying themselves thoroughly.
A good event isn’t always the one with the biggest budget. Though most organizers dream of unlimited resources, lack of funds shouldn’t be a hindrance to your event’s success. Inexpensive solutions to the usual pitfalls attendant in party planning can and do work. In this day and age, a little creativity and ingenuity will go a long way towards ensuring success. A useful little tool that can help rid you of hassle is, surprisingly, the humble rubber wristband.
Rubber wristbands are relatively cheap. They can also be chic and fashionable. When used innovatively, they can help keep events organized without compromising fun. They also come in a bevy of colors and styles and are easily customized to fit the theme of your event. Here are some useful tips and suggestions to help you start the ball rolling with your party plans.
If the event comes with an open bar, make sure all invited guests are given a wristband. This will help the bartenders and waiters identify the party-goers from the party-crashers. It’s particularly useful when the event venue is host to a number of events every night. Drink stubs and rubber stamps are so passé. Now, a flash of a wrist is all it takes to ensure that guests have a hassle-free good time.
Glow-in-the-dark rubber wristbands are also perfect for parties at night or during events held in dimly lit bars or similar venues. Aside from adding an element of fun, it is also a practical way of keeping track of your guests.
Color-coding is always fun! Since keeping track of guests has always been a perennial problem, give VIPs a different colored band to make them feel special. The extra effort will go a long way towards pleasing your guests.
Use the rubber wristbands to advertise. You can have the names of your sponsors imprinted on the rubber.
You can also use them to further a good cause! If charitable events and fund-raisers are more up your alley, use the wristbands to promote awareness and incite interest in the event by imprinting them with slogans or taglines associated with the cause.
Substitute rubber wristbands for invitations. Instead of sending out invitations, send the guests wristbands that they can wear to gain entrance to the event. It’s always easy to lose a ticket or an invitation but with a wristband, you can be sure that your entry pass is with you the entire time.
Use them as giveaways and souvenirs. With customized rubber wristbands, your guests will take home a reminder of the awesome time they will most assuredly have.
