Why Having an Agenda is Essential for Your Event

I'll never forget the first wedding I planned.

It was the dead heat of July. The cake melted after being the final delivery of the day (in a delivery van that was not air-conditioned). I had one missing bridal party member. And the battery in my headset had gone out. I was flying solo.

But I did have a diligently prepped, nine page agenda.

Let's talk about life-saving, shall we?

When you prepare for every possible disaster and the one you didn't plan for, an agenda comes in really handy. In today's video, I talk about that and two other super important reasons that you should have a deeply thought out agenda for your event. Let's get to it!

I should mention that I also always have TWO versions of my agenda/schedule: one that I give my attendees and one that I keep for myself. The one for attendees should be one-page if possible to keep from it getting cumbersome.

My own on the other hand? It's a scary-long, super detailed document that acts as my command center for an event. Replete with phone numbers, staging directions, and more details than I may ever need, it literally is the only document I ever use on-site. Keeps it simple, and keeps me sane.
