Get professional help
If you are supposed to organize a huge event then of course you will need to get professional help from event planners. They will do all the planning for you and it will be your work to simply coordinate things and ensure the other aspects of the event is in order. However, if you are unable to get a professional planner to do the entire event due to costs, you can even hire them partly for instance, only for the décor! Don’t forget that you should always get a good musical DJ for the event.
Make sure to draw up a plan and a budget
You will also need to draw up a plan or a budget in order to ensure that things are going according to requirement. Draw up a budget with the proper facts and figures so that you will be able to allocate the funds given to you properly. Always make sure to file the bills in order for submission to the higher management later on. The plan should consist of how you are going to get things done and also the order of events for the grand day. Don’t forget to plan on the invitations if you are not hiring a professional event planner. From simple things like having to buy ties to more complex things like hiring a proper catering, everything needs to be planned.
Get all things done at least a week ahead
It is very important that you plan things ahead. Don’t ever wait till the last minute to get everything organized. Because how much ever organized you tend to be, there will still be last minute requirements that will need to be fulfilled. However, do keep in mind that if you have given out orders early to do a follow up call in the last week to serve as a reminder for them.

Get your colleagues involved!
You will not be able to pull off a successful event unless you get your colleagues involved in the event. When you get the other office mates involved they will be more willing to help you out with the event planning. And do keep in mind that on the day of the event you will need as much help as possible!
