Grad is one of the most exciting times of the year! For many students, it’s the most memorable night of the school year, where they are surrounded by friends, good food and outstanding entertainment. Even though the seemingly endless amount of work that needs to be done can be daunting, the key to organizing a grad lies within careful planning and preparation. Here are three main aspects that lead to a successful grad.
Deciding on a theme is a huge part of grad planning. If you’re drawing a blank on ideas, Ranker provides a great list of ideas to inspire you. Remember, a great grad theme is all about the atmosphere, so choose a theme you think your student body will actually like and create an event they will want to attend.
The first decision that you’ll likely be faced with is whether to have an entire sit-down dinner, versus a buffet with simple hors d’oeuvres. In an attempt to please as many as possible, have a menu that offers a wide array of choices. However, before you get into the nitty gritty concerning the menu, check to see what your venue offers. If you wish to utilize outside caterers, check to see if your venue permits it.
Everyone knows that music truly sets the mood for the entire evening. Simply put, your music choice can make or break grad. Generally speaking, opt for a DJ that plays a variety of top hits, while still incorporating the dance party classics.
