Perhaps the most important thing of all is to have fun. Try not to let things overwhelm you. We have a vent thread on the forums for letting off steam when things start going wrong. It’s aptly called the “Exploding Heads” forum. A common line used by organizers is “I can’t brain, I have the dumb.” We all go through this. Things can get you down; we know and understand because we’ve been there at one time or another.

Take plenty of deep breaths; find time for just you to relax. Don’t neglect your family. Involve them if they will allow it, and find time to spend by yourselves. Friends and family are often very understanding, so don’t be afraid to call on them for help either, especially when it comes to the event and having someone to take pictures, footage, and generally help out. Remember this is fun to do most of the time.

Being the one to plan the event can be overwhelming. I would say create a checklist to help stay on task and ease any potential confusion. It also helps if you have someone to evaluate your event planning.
