Summer is here and that means it’s party planning time! Your friends have RSVP’d, the playlist has been made and you picked out the perfect set of decorations to go along with your theme.
But there is still one thing that needs planning … the venue.
The venue is going to make or break your party. Yes food, decorations, and entertainment are important aspects of the party, but the venue will be the foundation of your event and help keep everything structured and in place.
Some important questions to keep in mind as you’re considering your next private party venue are:
- How many guests are you expecting?
- What location are you considering?
- Will you need the event catered?
- What is your budget?
All of these questions are important to ask yourself as you go through the planning of where to host your party. Once you have an idea of what you are looking for, you can then begin searching for your venue.
As you begin checking out your private party venue options in Bedford, here are a few important things that consider during your search:
You’re most likely going to want to keep the venue cost down to allow more room in your budget for food, drinks and entertainment. This goes back to analyzing your budget and make sure you’re not overpaying for something that in the end may not be worth the extra cost.
2. Service and Amenities
As you walk through your tentative venue be observant as to what’s available to you and your guests. Does the venue have a kitchen? Can they provide catering services to your private party and also help with setup and cleanup? Are their tables, chairs and linens available for use?
There are two main things to consider for the layout of your event. The first is the flow of traffic, making sure there is space for your guests to walk around easily. The second is having a rough idea of what activities will be taking place and what amenities they will required in regards to space.
This refers back to inquiring about the layout of the event, but you want to be sure that the amenities at your event will be easily accessible. This especially should take place if you have a guest with special needs or a lot of children who will be attending.
This is also crucial for considering your venue because you want to be sure everyone has a place to park, close by to where your party will be hosted. If it’s not a good parking situation you probably will want to consider looking elsewhere. You sure don’t want your guests arriving to your private party irritated because they spent fifteen minutes finding parking.
