10 STEPS in planning an Unforgettable School Formal

It's the night of your lives. A celebration of the school years gone by and the excitement and possibility of what's to come. 

The Team at OzParty have created a cheeky checklist to help you plan for a SENSATIONAL School Formal:

Everything you need to know to ensure your School Formal goes off without a hitch.

Tick

1. BOOK EARLY: 

Book in your event as early as possible. Ideally we recommend booking 6-12 months in advance to secure the venue, vessel and/or transport and lock in your preferred date. Plus once you're booked in the excitement really begins.

Tick

2. PAY DEPOSIT: 

Typically only a small deposit is required to secure your booking, with the final balance due 14-days before the event date. This allows plenty of time to collect all monies from attending guests.

Tick

3. SEND INVITES:

Send out the invitations to all guests to notify of the event date, time, details, dress code and payment deadline. Save a few trees (and a lot of time and effort!) and send e-invites. We also recommend setting up a Facebook Group. Get the group interacting with song requests and awards nominations.

Tick

4. GET ORGANISED!

 Your event coordinator should keep you informed of the event schedule and important  'need to know's'. But ensure your online calendar, personal diary, Filofax (for old schoolers) is updated with the upcoming event. Also send regular reminders and updates to students.

5. GET HEALTHY: 

Step up the healthy eating regime. Lay off the Tim Tams and exchange for some healthy snacks, fruit and veggies. Now is the time folks. You need your body to be on it’s A-game to look your best and keep you fuelled for the fun party times ahead. 

Tick

6. DRESS UP:

Get your slick suits and dresses out of the wardrobe, dust them off and get them down to the dry cleaners – clean, pressed and ready for the upcoming event. Or even treat yourself to a new outfit for the occasion.....save costs and hire a designer frock, don't worry we won't tell mum or dad...

Tick

7. GROOM & PRUNE: 

Pre-book any pre-party grooming and pruning sessions; hair styling, eyebrow waxing, mani/pedi, spray tan, grab some killer aftershave. Make sure you're looking tip top, ship-shape and irresistible.

Tick

8. SURVIVAL KIT:

Pack your party survive and thrive kit. Minimal contents should include:

1) Scholls gel party feet, keep those feet dancing the night on through. 

2) Deodorant, sweat patches are a major turn-off. 

3) Chewing gum or mints, keep that breath minty fresh.

Tick

9. GET READY!

Allow plenty of time to get ready on the day to ensure you're dressed to impress and in the mood to party for prompt event kick-off. 

Tick

10. ENJOY!

Pin a smile on your dial, put your dancing shoes on and have a fantastic party.
