How to plan a speed dating party
The most important thing to remember is that, ultimately, you are providing a comfortable and welcoming environment for vulnerable singles looking to meet a mate.
After all, two of your participants may fall in love, live happily ever after, and, even more importantly, tell everyone they know about how wonderful your restaurant is.
At the end of the event, participants write down the names of anyone they are interested in; if there is a match, the host will forward contact information to both people within a day or so.
With the proper tools, planning and executing a successful speed dating night can be both exciting and fulfilling.
Additionally, you'll want to choose a name that has an available domain address to compliment or match.
Be honest and let them know your confidence and experience level.
At the end of the night they will all have met every opposite. Once you get the results, allow 24-72 hours to inform guest of their matches. Non mutual interests are voided discretely without anyone feeling put on the spot, or rejected.
They keep track of guest they would like to meet on the note card. Once all rounds are complete, guest turn their note cards in to you. How to Charge Depending on the venue selection and targeted audience, I would suggest charging anywhere from to per person at your speed dating event, starting out.
Whether you have 10 participants or 50, you'll also leave with a few extra dollars in your pocket through registration or cover fees. Be sure to also have your bar open and stocked, as a drink or two can go a long way towards helping participants relax and open up.
You can also offer appetizers and small plates for customers to munch on after the dates have finished up and everyone is mingling.
