Over prepare, then go with the flow.
This is the way to go because then you get all the panicking out of the way before anything starts and you can enjoy your event. I am very guilty of the panicking bit but usually also manage the ‘go with the flow’ and enjoy bit. The kids’ christenings and Tori’s 1st birthday party were grand examples of this – I practically killed myself worrying about it beforehand but then loved it afterwards.
So go for it. Plan, plan, plan, plan then just stop worrying and enjoy yourself – even if it doesn’t go exactly to your plan, if you just go with it then it will still be amazing and perfect regardless.
