10 Tips for Organizing a Formal Event


Create a Guest List and Send Invitations

Send out invitations well in advance of the event. Depending on the type of affair you're hosting, your guest list will include an array of people from friends to coworkers. Formal etiquette says that you should send your invitations at least six to eight weeks before the occasion and have your RSVPs recorded two weeks before. If you feel it's necessary, include the dress code on the invitations.
