Booking entertainment for a social gathering can be a relatively painless process, but is important to start as early as possible. As is the case with most things in life, the earlier you start, the better your results will be. Given the intense planning and paperwork which comes with entertainment booking, starting this process late will only create problems for you in the long run. In order to help you specifically understand why you should get a head start on this process, below are 4 reasons why you should book your entertainment as soon as possible.
Entertainers Require Early Notice
Entertainers are very busy people. While you might assume that your intended entertainment is not very occupied at a given time of the year, chances are they will be performing for events planned months ago. Because of this, many entertainers tend to require that you book them on at least a 1-3 month notice for any type of event. Some entertainers may even require you to book more than 3 months in advance depending on their popularity and upcoming schedule. The only way to ensure that you will be able to appropriately plan for your intended entertainment is to contact them days after initially deciding upon your event.
Prices Tend To Be Cheaper
While there are some entertainers who will perform for events on late notice, they also charge extremely high rates for having to quickly adjust their schedule. These rates may be too high for you to pay, especially after spending money on a number of other items for your event. Planning event entertainment months in advance will give you the best advantage when attempting to negotiate a price with a given entertainer. Since entertainers only have a rough idea of their schedule months down the road, you will likely be able to convince them of the cheapest price available given their uncertain demand.
You Can Plan for Unexpected Situations
When planning the entertainment for a social event, it is best to always follow Murphy’s Law. According to this social law, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” While you might not expect to have many difficulties planning your event, there will always be hiccups in the process that will force you to make immediate adjustments. These hiccups could include a change in date, decrease in guest availability, or a complete venue cancellation. Each of these scenarios would require you to make sudden changes that could drastically change the availability of your intended entertainment. By booking your entertainment months in advance, you can easily notify them of any changes in the event you have problems with your venue, guests, or other unexpected situations.
Your Event Will Be More Appealing
While you have likely informed your potential guests about the upcoming social event, how can you be certain that they will come? While families will usually not skip out on a birthday or graduation party, a retirement celebration can be a different story. By booking entertainment booked months in advance, you will have a much easier time marketing your event and convincing people to come.
