So, you think you have a perfect idea for a party, but you’re stressed making sure guests come and have fun. Don’t worry, you’re in good hands! We are experts at throwing parties, especially when there are drinking games involved! Follow these guidelines and you’ll get so many guests that you’ll have to start turning them away.
First, check with your close group of friends to see what night works best for them. Select your primary friends, so you don’t have too many conflicting opinions. Pick a date and time and see if any of your friends have a prior engagement. Continue to discuss this with your group until you come up with the best date. This will ensure that everyone comes according to plan. It will also help you track how many people will be attending.
In case you didn’t know, parties tend to grow when there are a variety of people. Invite many outgoing people, so they can help spread the word. Inviting a variety of different people is essential to help get the word out. If you are comfortable and your place will allow it, you can even tell your guests to bring their own friends along. Be very careful with this as you don’t want too many people you don’t know in your house. Sometimes, it is a great idea to have all guests RSVP, so you know exactly how many will be coming. An easy way to do this is to create a Facebook event. You can see who others invite, and know for sure who will be attending.
Lastly, make this an event that guests can’t say no to. Try being clever with a theme or reason for throwing a party. If it is just an average party, you may have to work a lot harder to get people to come. However, if it is a friend’s birthday bash for example, it will be easier to get all of your friends and peers to come. You can entice people to stop by for some free booze, food and music. You can include a wide range of music, so it will appeal to everyone who is attending. If this is a bridal shower or bachelorette party, you can easily get others to come! Just tell everyone how much the bride is looking forward to seeing them! For a college party, inviting mostly women will bring the crowd. College guys will go anywhere if there are a bunch of beautiful women. Remember, there is always someone who has a connection with everyone!
Most importantly, if you are having a party at a popular location, no one will turn it down! Host your party on a boat, beach, cabin, or at a fancy restaurant. The possibilities are endless. If you take the time to plan the best party at a great venue, you will have no problems getting tons of people to come out and enjoy the event with you. Well, it is now time for you take the reigns and throw the best party you and your friends have ever seen. Enjoy!
