Every party has food of some sort and that also could be a way to personalize the event or set your theme. Cultural foods according to their ethnicity or interests convey to the guest of honor that you thought about them while preparing their bash. Italian, Chinese, Mongolian, and Mexican seem to be among the favorites but don't forget that it could also be catered around food type. Finger foods, fruit, grilling, steaks, and probably our most favorite, desserts, can lead into some interesting ideas as well. Also you can gauge your theme by the entertainment you plan to provide. If you are having a clown come to entertain children you might consider a circus theme. If the atmosphere is more set for adults and you happen to enlist a hypnotist or, heaven forbid, a stripper, certainly there will be many different ideas that stem from that scenario. The main thing one needs to keep in mind when planning a party is that it will be best remembered by the amount of thought and personalizing that you put into it.
A wedding planning checklist is essentially a list of tasks and elements that need to be carried out for your wedding day. The internet is full of such checklists with most being freely available to download and print out. Whilst these wedding planning checklists provide you with a valuable aid to successful wedding, it is also a good idea to produce your own lists. Essentially the checklists you will download will be generic to most types of wedding. However, no two weddings are the same and you will need to edit them to make them fit with your wedding requirements. Aside from being a list of tasks, they will usually be broken down into shorter lists, which are dated to be carried out at various times during your wedding planning phase. For instance, they will be broken down into 12 months, 9 months, 6 months etc all with different tasks which need to be completed at this time. The average period for planning a wedding is 18 months, but weddings can be planned in longer or shorter time frames so you will need to adjust the planning checklists to suit the time frame you have in mind. Good checklists should also include a wedding budget planner so you can assign your budget to each element of your wedding day.
