Whatever the function, the venue is one of the most important aspects of the whole day. No matter what else you might have planned, if the venue isn’t up to standard, or isn’t right for your event, then it’s unlikely to be a success. Finding the perfect venue can be tough, which is why we’ve put together a to-do list of exactly how you should go about it.
Start Looking Early
If you are on the search for the perfect venue, the key is to get on the ball as soon as you can. The more time you give yourself, the more options will still be available, and the more relaxed you can be. There’s nothing worse that hiring the first venue that’s offered just because your date has been snapped up everywhere else. If you know that you are looking a date in a busy season such as the summer months, this is even more reason to start looking early, as these venues can get booked up a year in advance. If it’s for a wedding, you’ll need to be looking at least two years before the big day!
You might have found a venue that you’ve fallen in love with, but if everyone going to your function has to travel a long way, or it’s not accessible by public transport, you might have to rethink. It will be hard to get people to attend if it is far out of town unless you are arranging all of the transport as well. If it is located centrally, consider traffic and how long it will still take people to get there. This should be noted in invitations, so everyone knows when they need to leave by.
The type of function that you are hosting will decide the layout that will work best for you. If it is a family event, you don’t want people to be split up too much, you want them to be able to gather round a central area. If you are hosting a range of activities and expect a large number of people, you will need separate areas for all of these You’ll also need to ensure that there will be no risk of a bottleneck of people all trying to get to one place. It’s never to early to start considering the layout of the space, as you don’t want to realise that it doesn’t work after you’ve booked.
The type of event you are hosting will have its own aesthetic, and you want your venue to be able to reflect that. While you might be going for a more unusual look by hiring a unique venue in London, it still needs to create the ambience that you desire for the day. While meetings can be held in creative spaces, you can go too far. CEOs aren’t going to want to sit on beanbags discussing their budget for the year.
Visit in Person
Pictures can only do so much, which is why it is imperative that you visit the location in person. The photos might have looked one way, but actually getting into a venue is when you will get a true feel for it. You will have the chance to inspect the layout, ask questions, and see if it really is the venue for you. Don’t be afraid to check out multiple venues and take your time, comparing venues to one another can help you land on the one that is just right.
While it may look amazing, if your venue doesn’t have the facilities that you need, it’s not going to work out. Facilities that you need to consider are:
Is there space for everyone who wants to go? If not, what parking facilities are available nearby? Not everyone will want to rely on public transport, so if there’s not enough parking, your guests won’t be happy.
Expecting a big crowd? There’s nothing worse than a long queue for the bathrooms, so there needs to be enough that everyone will be happy.
Are there going to be presentations at your event? If so, there needs to be adequate technology for them to be able to set up. It’s best to get an expert in to check this out, particularly if you are playing videos or setting up a screen.
Capacity and Costs
How many people does the venue comfortably hold? If you are going to be near the maximum of this, you might want to consider a larger venue. No one wants to be cramped, and more room is better. At the same time, you want to avoid your function feeling empty. If there aren’t enough people in the room, the function will look like you expected more to turn up.
Ask the venue what costs are included with the booking, and what other fees you might entail with them by hosting your function there. Prices need to be within your budget, so don’t view anywhere that you know is going to be out of your reach.
Do You Need Catering?
Catering is an important part of any function, and many venues have their own in-house caterers, which can make the whole day run more smoothly. If you do need to invite outside caterers in, ensure that the venue has the facilities to deal with this. Do they have a kitchen onsite at all? Are they used to having caterers in the building? These are all questions that you need to ask.
Don’t be afraid to go into a venue with a list of questions or email them to a vendor. They want their venue to be the perfect one for you and will be happy to answer anything. After all, they’ll be used to it! Give yourself plenty of time to view different venues and consider the benefits of each before making your decision.
