Figure 1 Everyone wants their simcha to be perfect
Whatever celebration is coming up, anyone involved will know that the planning can sometimes take over. The joy of the event can be superseded by the stress of making sure that everything goes perfectly on the day. That’s why it is important to relax and take your time when it comes to planning any kind of simcha.
The scale of the simcha will obviously be determined by your budget. Whether you have extensive savings, or plan to raise money by placing a bet online, the expense can be a problem for some. But you don’t have to go through all this alone. Here are some things to consider when you are planning your own simcha.
Get Specialist Help
It is perfectly understandable that people want to micro-organize every last detail of their simcha. With such a special celebration, you won’t want to leave anything to chance. But piling all the pressure on yourself will only make everything more stressful. You can still be heavily involved even when you get outside help.
There are plenty of businesses that specialize in all kinds of simcha – and it doesn’t matter what budget you are playing with. The best event planners will take everything you want on board and then develop those ideas into a perfect event. Check review sites and allow someone to help you with your special event.
Home or Away
It depends on what kind of simcha you are preparing for. But some, like a wedding or an engagement party, give you the option of really pushing the boat out. If the budget is there, you ay want to consider celebrating the special day somewhere really special. Many couples planning weddings now consider Israel as the perfect destination.
This is where an event planner will really come into their own. There are a good number of businesses specializing in organizing weddings and events for couples not from Israel. The weather is almost guaranteed to be perfect – just make sure you give your guests plenty of time to save up for the trip!
Look for Examples
This is one area of simcha planning that has gotten much better in recent years. Depending on where you live, you may have had trouble finding specifically Jewish examples of events. If you wanted to include your faith and culture it was sometimes a little difficult to find something appropriate.
But there seems to have been an increase in Jewish event planning businesses recently, meaning that you can plan for the perfect occasion. Talk to these planners and work together to come up with the best results. You should be able to get a good idea of what is possible by looking at their websites.

Be True to Yourselves
When it comes to simcha, there is sometimes the pressure to follow a particular path and to produce something that you think is expected of you. But more and more people are looking to hold events that say something about themselves – and making your event specific to you will mean so much more to everyone.
It could even be that your wedding is multi-faith. That doesn’t mean that you have to discard all the traditional aspects that are important to you and your family. Incorporating everyone’s faiths and beliefs is possible and can make your event just as unique as you are as a couple.
Whatever the simcha, the main thing to remember is that this is supposed to be a joyous occasion. Don’t get too carried away with planning everything down to the smallest detail. Or, don’t get too stressed out about making sure everything is perfect. As long as you put your true feelings into the event, everyone will have a good time.
Make sure you get help, from friends and family, and your simcha will be a day to remember – for always.
