  • One of the most common mistakes I see made in event planning is choosing a venue before a guest list and budget are established. I know, it’s one of the most exciting decisions when planning an event, however, will this later limit the number of guests you can invite? Will aspects of the venue later strain your budget?

     

    1. Choose a venue that fits your guest list. If you plan to invite 250 guests, a venue that will only seat 150 is not going to be suitable for you.
    2. Decide what you want in a space-a blank slate or one that comes with all the tables, chairs, lounge furniture, etc that you will need.
    3. Will the venue accommodate you? Are you limited to select vendors? Does it offer a ceremony or cocktail space? What are the time constraints?
    4. Does the venue and it’s requirements fit in your budget?
