  • Thank you for the tremendous read. In it you mentioned that you should consider the guests you will be having, and choosing a venue that will interest them. My brother is holding an party for his friend, to celebrate a big milestone in his life. Since it’ll be a lot of people his age, perhaps a club or golf course would be a nice place. Thanks for the terrific idea.

    I’m glad that you mentioned making sure how parking works ahead of time. I have been planning an event, and I wasn’t sure how to select an event center to hold it at. I can see how it would be important to ask about parking ahead of time, so you can help people not get lost while looking for parking.

  • A great question is asked in the article about what other services are provided by the venue. For example, if you’re planning to invite a lot of people, then you want to make sure that the venue offers plenty of parking. It might also help to see if they have their own security team to protect your guests or if you’ll need to hire one yourself.

  • Thank you for pointing out the need to keep an eye out for the weather and have rain equipment prepared if the event will be held outdoors. I will keep note of that one as my sister’s birthday is planned to be held outdoors. Of course, we want to make sure that everything turns out perfectly, so I do not there is something wrong with being prepared.

  • Rhianna Hawk says:

    I’m planning to throw a Christmas party for my close and extended family that live in the same area as me, and as you said, catering to my audience will be important. Most of my family falls into a sort of higher-end healthy eating demographic, so getting somewhere with higher quality food will be important. Luckily, there are a lot of places like that where I can reserve a venue for a party that are nearby, so getting something close to where they all live won’t be a problem.

  • You made a good point when you said that it’s important to consider the number of people that you’re planning to invite so you can find a place that can accommodate them. My husband and I are organizing our wedding anniversary party. We want to make sure that all our guests are going to be comfortable and will have the space to dance the night away. Thanks for sharing this.

  • Not many people would think to do it but I like that the article recommends checking on other services that the venue provides outside of just hosting the venue. For example, it definitely helps to make sure that they offer parking. That way all of your guests will have plenty of places to park so that they can get to the event.

    I agree that you must be aware of the number of people that will attend your event to find a venue that can accommodate all your guests. My fiance and I are planning to get married in June. This is why we want to find a good wedding venue. We’re planning to invite more than 200 guests, and we want to make sure that our wedding venue won’t look too overcrowded. Thanks!

  • Ava Mupthy says:

    Thanks for pointing out the importance of choosing a venue that can accommodate the number of your expected guests. My fiance and I are planning to get married soon, and we are so excited. We want to invite all our friends, workmates, and relatives. We want them to enjoy our wedding party, so we want a wedding venue that won’t look and feel too overcrowded. We’ll consider all your tips.

  • Thanks for pointing out that it’s important to choose an event venue that can accommodate the number of your expected guests. My fiance and I are planning to get married soon because we want to have our own family. We are looking for a wedding venue that won’t feel and look overcrowded because we want to ensure the comfort of our almost 250 guests. Thanks!
