Event Planners Please Help With Budget by New9jabeb: 12:43pm On Oct 01, 2014
Hello Planners or anyone who can help.

I am planning a 21st formal dinner party for my daughter and inviting about 60 people in total. Help me with a realistic budget. I dont want to say I have 500k yet when we start I end up paying for the most expensive things. The party is next year early January in Lagos. How much should I budget for these items. I need a rough idea of how much things costs. Average things we are no bankers nor work in oil and gas:-)

Cake - 3 tier
Decorations
Food
Photography
Makeup
Venue Ikeja/VI
table chair hire
Planner fees

Thanks in advance

Rough estimate of 600k upward.Depending on the quality of services rendered.Its also possible you get all for 500k or less(including venue).Quality of services rendered will determine what will be spent.If u r using chavari chair(350-400per one) u can't compare it to OK plastic chairs(500 per dozen)..Photography(do u want soft copy alone?If u want a photobk,synthetic or Normal one?all these shd be considered,The Kind of decor where a chavari chair is used will be far diff frm the OK plast decor.

thanks

hi i suggest u rent the backdrop,rather than making one.its a lot cheaper and economical if u rent the backdrop then you have a printer do the logo for you to paste on the backdrop.for the candy,buy different types of candies from stores like shoprite and the rest and you can arrange them in glasswares as shown in d pic u posted.but then i suggest u tell your eventplanner/decorator to help you out on it.cos of stress

Re: Event Planners Please Help With Budget by New9jabeb: 8:28am On Nov 05, 2014
Thanks. your pic is pretty and looks doable. Any idea of the cost and wer to rent the backdrop and who can print.
