Keys to Selecting the Perfect Venue!

So many people ask me do I know of any halls or places to host an event or function. A lot of times there are many options to host your event, but your not quite sure if the space is suitable for your needs or is within your budget. Here’s some insight on what to look for when selecting a place to hold your next special event!

Private or Public? That is the question!

Most event facilities are either privately owned properties or spaces that are open to the general public. Here are a few things to consider, when choosing either a public or private property for your function.

EVENT SPACE

What is a public event space you might ask? Typically public event spaces are your local Veterans post or any local community center. These places offer areas in their facilities for individuals to come in and hosts their private event. What I love most about public venues is they are very lenient when it comes to allowing you to decorate your event without restrictions such as using tape, balloons, confetti, etc. And the best part of public venues is that they allow you to provide your own food if you have decided not to use a caterer. Typically most public event spaces have a flat four hour event fee or a base hourly rate. One of the setbacks of public venues is that because they are public, and often times other things maybe going on during your event; that could be distracting or simply just take away from your event atmosphere. Typically there is no event staff so you’re responsible for the overall setup & cleanup. Things like untidiness, noise, or uncooperative staff are common complaints when using a public venue. If you do decide to go with a public venue be sure to that you arrive early to properly prepare and the venue has a clear understanding of your expectations. After all you are spending your money with them!

A private event space could be a beautiful hotel banquet hall or ballroom. Some restaurants & lounges offer event space, even bars or night clubs! Private venues are great because generally they have décor elements in their space, which you can work with for your own event. Private venues commonly provide linen, silverware and event staff to help you coordinate your event so you don’t have to. Most private venues have an in-house caterer, which is convenient but can also be very expensive. Providing catered food for your guests at a private venue could be anywhere from $4 -$15 per person. The great thing about private venues is that the staff and in-house planner have experience with hosting/planning events and they will work hard to provide and meet all your needs.
