Interview The Venue
Are you a new "over-your-head"event-coordinator, "stressed-out and beaten-up" Maid of Honor, overwhelmed "Bridezilla" or "perfectly normal" individual looking for the perfect venue to host your next big event but don't know how to narrow it down?
If so... then you've come to the right place!
I have used my experience and the experience of others to come up with an extensive guide and checklist to help you pick out the venue that best fits you and the needs of your event. This Complete Guide & Checklist on what to ask... When Picking a Venue is broken down into 5 major categories:
1.) General Facility & Special Additions
This section of the guide is to get a general understanding of the facility and all it has to offer.
2.) Pricing/Fees & Policies
This section of the guide is to inquire all the upfront and hidden fees to ensure you are sticking as close to your budget as possible.
This section of the guide is to help ensure that you and your guests are safe and knowledgeable of the proper safety amenities. This allows you to properly formulate an Emergency plan (if needed).
4.) Setting-up & Decorating
This section of the guide is to assist with an efficient blueprint and timeline for setting up the event area while staying in the parameters of the facility's regulations/policies guidelines.
5.)Food/Catering & Outside Vendors
This section of the guide is to help you plan out your menu and all entertainment while, again, staying in the parameters of the facility's regulations/policies guidelines.
Please feel free to download and print out this Guide & Checklist to take along with you whenever you schedule to visit a venue. Take charge of your event! It's time to be the reporter and Interview The Venue!
