If you’re ever put in charge of organizing an event, you’ll soon find out how many minor details you’ll deal with. Finding the best wedding venues for example, is likely the most important thing to do and you’ll need to book the event in advance. The schedule of the event and the food preparation tasks will follow, so you need to make sure that the place that you choose is the best fit for the occasion.

These are some tips to help you.

Location

This is the first thing to keep in mind when you’re evaluating a venue because some attendees will travel from different areas to the event. Sometimes the best place isn’t always close to nearby hotels, airports, or city traffic. No matter the location, be sure it is at least accessible, and always take into account the traffic, parking spaces, and weather for that time of year. Make sure that you have a written arrangement with the owner of the venue because a last minute change of location is the last thing that you want to deal with.

Parking

Find out whether the setting has adequate parking space. If the location does not have parking lots, check whether there are adequate parking lots nearby that the guest can access. If several events are held at the same venue, consider reserving parking space for guests. You can either include the parking fees as part of the ticket fee or leave participants to pay for it.

Capacity

You have to know the exact capacity of the venue for many reasons. For instance 100 people cannot fit comfortably in a room for 50 persons only. You also have to consider safety and fire codes. It is advisable to ask the venue management to provide complimentary services like drinking water or Wi Fi internet. You also need to find out whether your venue has a kitchen and can offer catering for the event.
