Burning Question - Graduation Party

(Graduation invitation by Carlson Craft)

Q: When should I start planning my daughter's graduation party?

A: Traditionally, you can begin planning about 6 weeks prior to the actual date of the graduation. However, it has been my experience that you should give yourself a little more time. Why? Because banquet facilities usually book for May & June weddings about a year in advance. This means that everyone else planning a graduation party will be rushing to book whatever is still available.

I suggest you begin planning as soon as you know the graduation date. And by all means, hire a professional event planner to assist. Not only will you save time, but a planner can also save you money in the long run.

Have a FABULOUS day!
