Inside Our Event Planning
Excel and Google Sheet Template
Some people love throwing parties. The decorations, food, drinks, costumes--they just have a knack for what will look and feel fun. I am in the other camp, solely wanting to have a good time and wanting to delegate all party planning activities to the planner.
That’s where our Event Planning Excel Template comes in handy, regardless of your role in the party planning committee (looking at you Angela from The Office). This template can be used to organize and plan the details, tasks, and expenses of your event, whether it be a wedding, graduation, birthday party, church gathering, office party (looking at you Angela and Phyllis).
Organize and plan details, tasks and expenses of your event with our Event Planning Excel Template.
If you love this template, you’ll also want to check out our Weekly Team Meeting, Kanban Board or Gantt Chart templates. They are some of the amazing project management templates we offer that can also be used depending on the nature of your event.
Let’s dive into how to use this template.
Start in the Event Planning sheet. Add your event to the table. Fill out fields that include Event, Type, Date, Category, Budget, Spent to Date and Related Tasks / Expenses. You can use the splicer to bring up the Event, Total Budget, Total Expenditure and Remaining Amount for the specific event.
Move to the Task Management sheet where you can add tasks and assign them to the event of your choice. Fields include Task Description, Task Status, Event, Event Date, Task Lead, Deadline, Notes, Vendor, Vendor Type, Contact Name and Contact Info.
Navigate over to the last sheet, the Task Dashboard. Select an event and all the tasks for that event will populate as well as the corresponding information related to vendors and vendor management.
Just like that, you’ve created a system for better tackling tasks to make sure your event runs smoothly.
