Whether this is your first or your fiftieth, they can be a little overwhelming.

What theme will you choose?

Casual? Business? Formal? Hawaiian? Racing? Cowboy? No theme at all?

How do you estimate how many attendees you will have? And what about registration?

50? 1,000? How big is your group going to be? And how are you going to sign them all up in an organized fashion?

What about food?

Sack lunches? Full formal chef? Three meals? Two? Buffet?

How will you get people to come?

How are you going to tell everyone about your event and get all them excited about coming?
