A Step-by-Step Guide to Organise a Successful Event
Define the purpose and goals
Start by identifying if your event is a wedding, business function, or a casual gathering. Is there a video or slideshow to be shown? This step shapes the entire event planning process.
Create a event’s budget
Establishing a budget is crucial for making informed decisions. It guides your choices for the venue, catering, and other essential services.
Select an Event Venue
Choose a Date and Time
Picking the right date is key. Consider seasonality and guest availability when scheduling your event in Gippsland. Weekends can be busy so Thursday / Friday events are often better value. In summer, there are more weddings and other events so a shoulder or low season can be a great option for those working with a smaller budget!
Create a Guest List
Tailor your guest list to match the capacity of your chosen venue, ensuring an intimate yet dynamic atmosphere. We can cater for 100 guests seated and 120 standing!
Opt for Carrajung Estate’s diverse catering options, perfect for events in Gippsland, from elegant dinners to relaxed buffets.
Select entertainment that complements the serene Gippsland setting and enhances your event’s theme. There are some local great bands and artists we can recommend.
Use decorations that align with the natural beauty of Carrajung Estate and the essence of your event.
