Choosing a Small Event Venue

Small Event Venue

Finding a small event venue to host your intimate celebration can be a little challenging without some direction. There are important components to consider before booking your venue, which are essential to creating a unique event. You should consider the space, flexibility, aesthetic, décor options, amenities and services. We are sharing tips for choosing a small event venue.

The Type of Event

The type of event you are hosting will have everything to do with the size and type of venue you book. The venue must accommodate your guest count without looking overcrowded or empty. Whether you are planning a small wedding, corporate function, quinceanera, family reunion, class reunion, rehearsal dinner or ball, your event is bringing a very specific number of important guests under one roof. Make sure the venue has the capacity to accommodate your special guest count. The layout of the room, furnishings and décor will be important elements to consider. A boutique restaurant is the perfect small event venue to create an intimate space for celebrations.

Location of a Small Event Venue

Location is one of the most important considerations when it comes to planning any event. Location will matter for a few reasons. You might want a small event venue to be located near hotels, main highways and near important destinations that could provide a unique experience, such as a romantic marina or beach. If you will have guests from out of town, consider the distance to an airport and surrounding hotels. If the special event is a destination wedding, the location will give it even more meaning. A nautical-themed restaurant on the water in a coastal city could be the perfect small event venue.

Designing a Small Event Venue

Big or small, this is your dream event. It is deserving of all you imagine. Most venues have limited services and designs or just the empty space. If it is important for you to have luxurious designs, furnishings, linens, chinaware and table décor, you will probably want to find an all-inclusive small event venue that provides an affordable package for a fully designed space. These types of venues have professional designers in-house to design the space and stage your event according your vision and theme. When you tour venues, ask questions about design services and special packages. A boutique restaurant with a professional designer, furnishings and décor options can help you create the space you envision.

Special Services

Choose a small event venue that can provide services beyond the space. Make sure your venue can provide the banquet staff. Banquet staff are essential to providing service at any event. Bartender services can be extremely important, if you are considering having a bar. Food management is necessary when you are having drop-off catering with a buffet. There are other services you might want at your special event, such as lighting, formal chinaware and floral designs. Make a list of all the elements you want to be part of your magical day, and bring the list with you to the small event venue that has your consideration. A boutique restaurant has the ability to bundle essential services into a package that can save you thousands on planning, such as furnishings, décor, chinaware, a full bar with bartender staff, banquet staff and food management.
