Your Event: Disaster or Triumph?

We’d like to paint you a picture – an event with and without an event planner. Imagining how it’ll all turn out is part of the excitement leading up to your event! But what if this special time is filled with worry and stress instead of fun and anticipation? Arranging everything yourself from flowers to catering can be demanding and time-consuming. An event planner doesn’t just take control of organising these important elements, they also act as the go-to person for any pre-event issues and questions you have. This month, rather than tell you how we can help you, we’re going to show you instead!

Unique entertainment ideas for an event without a DJ

We’re all familiar with the lively and fun atmosphere created by a DJ – they get everyone involved and there’s plenty of dancing and fun created with all the interactive novelties! But what if you don’t want a DJ at your event? This could be for many reasons such as preferring to have a daytime event, your child isn’t a fan of dancing, loud music or you are on a tight budget. Whatever the reason is, we can help you create a fun and unforgettable celebration without a DJ!

Dash of Sparkle’s guide to asking the right questions at a venue visit

Amongst the excitement, nerves and anticipation leading up to your event, there may be questions you forget to ask at the most important time – your venue visits! It’s normal to feel in awe at a beautiful venue and look at the gorgeous décor, gardens and function rooms, it can even feel overwhelming when there’s so much to take in and without experience, it isn’t easy to know what to ask. At Dash of Sparkle, we want to make sure you don’t miss a trick.

You’ve got your orchestra, now to find the perfect conductor!

When you look at an orchestra, you’ll see talented violinists, drummers and pianists, all ready to give the performance of their lives. They have practised, perfected their part and shown up for the big day. But as talented as they are with their individual instruments, they won’t be able to create a magical breath-taking experience without the help of a conductor to bring it all together. To deliver an emotionally and physically phenomenal performance, the conductor is the most important part of any orchestra – they look after everyone and oversee the performance from start to finish.

Explore the possibilities with our free venue finding service

The exciting part has happened and you’ve started to brainstorm ideas for your event. You may have already got a colour scheme, guest list and planned an outfit, but what happens when it comes to the venue? Maybe you haven’t even started looking yet, or you may have trawled around several venues but none of them ticked all your boxes. On paper, it might seem straight forward to choose a venue as usually the first thing to consider is location. As the planning progresses, you’ll quickly realise that it’s about way more than that. If you don’t feel the venue has the wow-factor, it can be frustrating and disheartening.
