Finding the Perfect Venue
Whether you're getting married, throwing a party or in charge of your company gathering here is what you need to look for when searching for the perfect venue.
Scope out different locations; consider where you think your guests might prefer and convenience. Make sure you know a rough estimate of attendees, possible dates and a budget when scouting locations and eventually venues.
Choose venues that align with your vision and make a list of your faves.
Does the venue have a good reputation? Do your homework and search reviews.
Schedule site visits and find out what's included and what's extra.
Discuss logistics; wifi, parking and transportation, food and drinks, capacity, support staff, amenities and any restrictions.
Insurance, have a conversation with the venue about this.
Does the atmosphere work? The layout? Consider acoustics and sound.
Do they have date flexibility and/or do you need to consider alternatives due to weather?
Who is the point of contact leading up to and on your event date?
Your gut feeling will let you know when you've found the right space, so listen to it!
