Ready to Book a Venue for a Party? [6 Steps]

Here's How to Book a Venue for a Party with BLACE

Who doesn't love hosting a party? It's a great way to gather with friends, family, or colleagues to celebrate a memorable occasion. To ensure your party is a hit, it's essential to book the right venue. But before you get started, you first need to establish your venue requirements. Let's look at the essential criteria you'll need to consider before booking a venue for a party.

1. Identify Your Preferred Date(s)

Before you begin inviting guests to your party, it's essential to plan ahead and determine a few preferred dates that work best with everyone's schedule. This will give you the flexibility to find the best venue and vendors for your event. Also, don't forget that certain times of the year are busier than others for event planning. So, be sure to book your venue and vendors in advance to ensure they're available for your party.

2. Set a Budget

Planning a great event is not easy, but BLACE is here to help. The second step in your process should be to determine your budget. Keep in mind that if you're planning on using a white box space, you may need to budget in things like rentals and staffing, in addition to catering and entertainment. It doesn't have to be an exact number, but having a range in mind will keep you on track throughout the process.

3. Consider the Venue Location

Location, location, location! Do you have a specific area in mind, or are you flexible on location? Pre-tip: When searching for a venue, narrowing down your ideal area to a few neighborhoods can keep you from being overwhelmed with options.

4. Check the Guest List

When planning your event, you should never overlook the guest list. The number of guests you plan on inviting will indicate whether you need an intimate venue or a large-scale space.

5. Imagine the Look & Feel

How do you want your event to look and feel? Intimate? Spacious? Bright and colorful? Dark and moody? Determining the look and feel of your event will help you book the right venue. If you're not quite sure yet, that's okay! BLACE vendors can help you create and realize your dream event through design, production, florals, etc.

6. Research the Amenities

Finding the right amenities in a venue is key to your event's success. Be sure to research each venue beforehand to ensure it meets your requirements. Some amenities to keep in mind when searching for a venue include:

  • ADA Accessibility
  • Bar/Kitchen
  • Custom Lighting
