It’s quite obvious that the reason why you are here today is that you are looking forward to planning an event and all the responsibility of that event is on you. From the venue to the guest list and the food menu, everything’s on you and you just don’t know where to begin from. If that’s the case then don’t worry because our venue hiring guide here will help you and everything will start falling into place for you once you decide on a great venue.
Whether it’s a hen’s night in Melbourne or a baby birthday party that you are planning, the venue matters the most. If your venue is good and just in accordance with your party’s theme then yes, you can expect a successful event.
Here are some of the things that you must consider when choosing your event venue.
The first thing you need to consider is location. You cannot just decide on a venue that’s too far away for your guests. On the other hand, you cannot even plan a party next to your guest’s house so what you have to do in this case is that you have to decide on a venue that’s located in a place where everyone can come easily. Consider the parking options of that place and check if there is any transportation available there while also considering the traffic.
- Services and Amenities
You obviously need catering services at your venue, right? If yes then this is something you should ask before time because there are some venues where you are the one who has to manage everything and there are no catering services and amenities etc. Also, if a restaurant of a private venue has such services then make sure to ask them the details about it. Check what’s included in those services and what’s not, check the amenities too so that once you finalize a venue, you know it’s right for your party.
- Cost and Flexibility on Event Date
If you want to negotiate the cost for an event venue then here’s a quick tip that always works. Be flexible with the dates! The more flexible you are with the dates, the more are the chances that you will get some discount on the venue. It’s a tried and tested fact so always provide them at least 2 to 3 date options and let them tell you which one is more suitable.
These are some of the things that you must consider before deciding on a venue for a party. As said earlier, if your venue has the perfect ambience, the perfect services and if it’s within your budget then consider your party a win-win already. Don’t decide your venue at the 11th hour and make sure to at least start looking for the perfect place for your event, 2 weeks before. The earlier you start, the better it is!
