Hosting a luxurious party is the ultimate social event. You can throw a luxury party for several occasions, from special birthdays to weddings or holidays, or for no particular reason.
When they are done well, luxurious parties create lasting memories, cement friendships, and enrich your social circle. A luxury party must be indulgent and memorable, and it requires a significant amount of planning and of course, the perfect party dress.
To throw a glamorous party and elevate your social status, follow these steps:
A fantastic party requires a significant amount of planning. So if you’re going all out, or if this is your first luxury party ever, give yourself plenty of time to plan your event.
If you’re planning to hold the event at your home, give yourself time to prepare your home for a party. Every detail counts, and you want to ensure you have plenty of time to take care of all the details.
Consider Hiring an Event Planner
Just because you hire an event planner doesn’t mean you get to sit back on your laurels and wait for the big day. You’ll still have to play an active part in your luxury party, and if you find an event planner willing to work with you, you can still play a prominent role in managing the details.
Event planners know how to throw a party, and with their experience, they will have many professional connections that can save you money in other areas. In other words, doing it yourself isn’t a way to save money. Instead, you can save yourself a lot of time and stress by letting someone help you.
Choose the Right Venue
Your luxury party can be held at your home, but it doesn’t have to be. Instead, you can host a party at a fancy venue downtown to create a unique experience and take your guests’ breaths away.
When you choose a venue, put yourself in your guests’ shoes and try to see the venue from their perspective, from the moment they pull up to the building until they enter the main event area. Does the venue take their breath away?
Consider taking it outdoors if you decide to have your party at home. With the proper lighting, landscaping, and an outside bar, your guests won’t ever want to leave. Put the money you would spend on a venue into your backyard and transform your patio into a modern paradise.
Create a Program of Events
You don’t have to plan every second of your great party, but you should have a program of events.
After your guests arrive, the first order of business is toasting the occasion. For example, congratulations are in order if you’re celebrating an anniversary.
Let the evening flow naturally, but make sure you have time for important activities, like dancing. Planned activities will also help your guests feel more involved. And a program of events is also essential, so your caterer knows when to serve the food.
Hire a Bartender
Every truly unique party has a fantastic bartender and an open bar. So hire a bartender, set them up with everything they need, and let them make potent cocktails for your guests.
As a special touch, choose custom-designed cocktail toothpicks for your event. The magic is in the details, and your bar should be fully stocked with specialty items that make your guests’ drinks feel like an event all their own.
Splurge on the Food
If you have to watch your costs anywhere, make sure it’s not your food budget. The menu is the most critical part of a luxurious party, and if you have incredible food and a great bar, your guests won’t even notice if the music is a little off.
Hire the best caterer, and choose a combination of meat dishes and seafood. Don’t forget to have vegan or vegetarian options so everyone feels welcome and gets fed.
Whether you’re holding your event at home or using a local venue, you can create a playlist for your party. First, try using a party playlist app like Jukestar. You’ll still have control of your playlist, but your guests can also join in the fun and request songs for your party if you want to include them.
Even when you have a DJ hosting a party, there can be awkward silences, but when you use an app like Jukestar, you don’t have to worry about that.
Let Your Event Planner Help You
If you want a genuinely luxurious party, let your event planner handle your guests’ needs during the party. Having them there will allow you to enjoy your party.
Of course, as the host or hostess of your party, you will want to greet your guests when they arrive, but your event planner can act as a concierge and help your guests find a place for their coats and direct them to the restroom. Your guests will love having the extra attention lavished on them.
