Top Tips on How to Ensure Your Event Stands Out


Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary or even a corporate shindig, there’s no question that if you’re responsible for organising the event, you’ll want it to stand out.

It’s all too easy to plan the event within an inch of its life, but how do you know that people will actually enjoy it? After all, you can’t plan fun!

Lots of us have been to countless birthdays, a few weddings, maybe even a handful of retirement celebrations but it’s not easy to make sure that your event is one that your guests will remember for years to come.

At The Royal Nawaab Manchester, we’ve welcomed hundred if not thousands of guests over the years, and we’d like to think we know what makes a party that little bit more memorable so we’ve rounded us some of our favourite party planning tips to ensure yours is the one on everyone’s lips!

Choose a Memorable Venue

It goes without saying that you’ll have to consider a budget when looking at planning your event. But, we know that first impressions really do matter and if your guests walk into a drab venue, they’re more than likely going to get slightly put off even without experiencing the rest of the evening.

Choose a venue that is set to take their breath away. The Royal Nawaab Manchester is a perfectly placed and beautifully decorated venue suitable for a wide range of events. We’ve hosted Asian weddings, company conferences, birthdays and graduations for a whole host of people. We have two absolutely exquisite suites designed for events; from intimate get-togethers to large, extravagant affairs.

From our stunning chandeliers, to our beautiful, grandiose setting, we make sure that every corner is Instagram ready!

The Ottoman Suite is our larger banqueting suite of the two, and it’s refinery at its best. Breath-taking yet classic, the suite holds a maximum capacity of 750 – meaning there’s plenty of room to get everyone in.

Our Persian Suite, on the other hand, is a lot more intimate, featuring stunning décor and extraordinary ambience – perfect for smaller events as it holds up to 250 people.

Plus, if you book any of our banqueting suites between November and January next year, we’d be delighted to offer 50% off all decorations meaning you can personalise your event to exactly how you want it – all for a fraction of the cost!

Add Personalised Touches

There’s nothing more amazing than adding some little touches that really personalize the venue and make your guests feel welcomed and at ease.

If you’re hosting your wedding reception, for example, why not leave party favours on the table that are unique to you as a couple? It could be something you both love or even a newspaper from that day on the table as a keepsake for each guest as a way of remembering this special day?

When planning your celebration, think of a way to really personalize and create a unique RSVP card? If you enjoy travel and holidays, why not do it in the form of a postcard?

Serve Unique and Tasty Food

Let’s face it… sometimes food at an event can be an afterthought. How many times have you been to a venue and have no idea what the food was like?

Many people can’t remember whether it was good or bad at large scale events – and that’s not a good thing.

The food you serve is one of the most creative ways you can really sell your event and make it one to remember. Whether it’s an eye-catching dessert or a mouth-watering main, you’ll want to provide something that will wow your guests and keep them going back for more!

At Royal Nawaab Manchester, we’re delighted to offer a range of dishes – from mild curries to spicy curries, from sensational starters to delicious desserts and everything in between and we’re more than happy to cater for a whole range of events; from small to large, from informal to formal – no event is too difficult for us and our highly skilled and talented chefs.

If you’re looking to host a one-of-a-kind event at a one-of-a-kind venue, then be sure to get in touch with us and we can go through the logistics of your special day, including all our menus and dishes, to choose exactly what you need. Contact us to find out more.
