The best way to pick a venue for a party or event will depend on the type of event or if your party has a theme. Personally, I think it’s a great idea to have a theme for a party and some events. If you have a theme for your party or event then it helps in choosing and picking a venue.
If your party or event has a theme, then choose venues that are related to the chosen theme. Choosing a venue related to the theme creates the atmosphere for the entire party or event. Maybe you have a horror theme for your party in which case perhaps an old creepy house that you might see in a haunted house movie or horror flick would be a good choice for the venue of that particular party for example.
Another thing to consider when it comes to a venue is cost and saving money. We all want to get the best deal possible when it comes to renting a venue. Here are some money saving tips when looking for a venue:
1) Consider lower cost alternatives such as local parks, community centers, church social halls, lodges and clubs.
2) Fridays and Sundays are usually in less demand than Saturdays. Some facilities might discount their rates on these days, so it’s a good idea to ask for a discount while renting their facility on these specific days.
3) Book the venue in advance. You could avoid extra fees from waiting to book too late.
4) Sometimes a venue might be on a time schedule for keeping the space constantly booked. If this is the case and you are booking at the last minute based on the venue’s time schedule, ask for a special deal. The venue management most likely would rather have someone rent the space instead of letting it go empty.
Other things to consider when choosing a venue is the number of guests you are going to have at your event and whether you want most people to be standing up and mingling or if the party is going to be a sit down event. If the venue is going to be an outside event you will also want to have a contingency plan in place for your event just in case of bad weather. Hopefully, some of these tips and ideas help you save money and better choose a good venue for your party or event!
