Outdoor Event – Do you have a Plan B?

11 Jul

So you have been planning this wonderful outdoor event for months, but closer to the event date you notice that there may be “not so nice” weather that may also be in attendance.  What now?  Of course you have a plan B of where you will move your event to that will be indoors, but does your guests know that?  We suggest that you send “rain cards” to your guests that will advise them on where to go in the case of inclement weather.  In doing this, you help to assure guests that they will not have to endure the change in weather and increases their chances of attendance of the event you have put so much time and effort into planning.  Make sure to ask your stationery design team on the best way to advise your guests within your stationery choices.
