Planning a School Formal for 2018?

Impress parents, students and guests alike by ensuring that your school’s formal looks as professional as possible in 2018.

The easiest way to do this is to hire a professional event planner. They will have a trained eye for design, excellent organisation skills and a large network of suppliers who work at discounted prices.


Planning In-house Vs. Hiring a Professional Event Planner

There is a significant difference between planning a formal in-house and a professionally organised formal. Planning a large formal is time-consuming. There are so many tasks – from finding the right venue, the menu selection, theming, entertainment and more.

With the existing schools we work with, here are the difference between the roles of the school vs. the roles of the event planner. By allowing Saber Events to handle everything, you have more time to focus on planning and teaching.

The school’s role is:

  • Finding a venue and menu selection
  • Invitations and RSVP management, including collection of student payments

Saber Events Role:

  • Sourcing a photographer and/or photo booths
  • Obtaining supplier quotes and negotiating better pricing
  • Paying all of the suppliers
  • Sourcing props to match the theme
  • Coordinating with the venue manager
  • Organising run sheets
  • Venue layout
  • Venue set up and pack down
  • Quality control management
  • Handling any last minute requests

Let the students focus on their studies and allow Saber Events to take care of everything and ensure that all goes to plan.

To uphold your school’s reputation with parents and guests, it is necessary to portray an image of quality. You want to impress the guests and make your students proud to be a part of the school. Guests may decide to enrol their own children at your school based on their impressions at the formal.
