After nearly 20 years of event planning experience, the team at Marilyn Ambra Party Consultants has learned dozens of lessons about how to nail down the details and double check the agenda so that nothing falls behind.

Picture this, you’re checking things off the to-do list, everyone is in order and everything is falling into place, then suddenly the day comes to a screeching halt. Whether an unexpected crisis rears its head, or something has fallen through the cracks, you realize that you have forgotten some small detail that has sent everything spiraling. Because you overlooked one tiny detail, the day is scrambled, and it’s all hands on deck to make it right again.

Whether you’re a newbie event planner, or a seasoned professional, a little mishap can happen to anyone, and it is important that you go the extra mile to iron out all the details beforehand to avoid forgetting important pieces of the puzzle. For this week’s Wednesday Wisdom we we are excited to share some of our hard earned tips with you.
