Picking a venue for your event can be a big part of your overall event planning process. Make selecting a venue easy by learning what to look for when beginning to search. Start with a vision and purpose for your event, then incorporate these tips to create the perfect venue space.
Location is important to keep in mind when choosing a venue. The region where the venue is located can affect how accessible it is for guests. Without a guest, there is no event. Ensure that all guests can travel safely and have efficient access to enjoy all aspects of the venue space. Look into entrance ramps and parking spaces at your venue location. Speaking of space, one of the first things you should know when picking a venue is how many guests will be there. This will establish the size venue that’s needed and can impact the comfortability of the venue.
Select a place
Once you have addressed the event size, you can decide where you want your event to take place. Finding a venue that has all your event needs in one place and can be designed to carry your theme is crucial. Although the fastest way to select a venue is picking one that is already built, it can be hard to get everything you want out of one venue space. The room could be large but there is only one bathroom, or there is a dancefloor but not much room to dance. If you find yourself having a difficult time checking all the boxes of your venue requirements, don’t settle. Building your venue can be more personalized and just as fun.

Build your own space
Starting from scratch allows the event planner to build out the event the way they imagined, and not what the venue confines them to. A great way to build a custom venue is by renting a party tent. Grimes Events & Party Tents offers a variety of sizes and styles of outdoor party tents. Another great aspect of a party tent is it can be put anywhere opening the doors for endless locations. It can be on a beach, a farm, a park, or even your backyard. No matter where the event is, its one-of-a-kind setup will leave a lasting impression.
When you build out an event you can use one tent or multiple to build the structure of your choice. Add on rooms inside the tent or just off the tent to accommodate a lounge in addition to your event space. This is a great way to incorporate an upscale lounging area for your guests to relax. Maximize your space by organizing it the way it works best for your event. Incorporate rentals like a stage for entertainment, a floor for dancing, rentals for catering, and even luxury portable restrooms. Grimes Events & Party Tents has countless event rentals that will transform your space into a one-of-a-kind venue.
Transforming your venue
Décor, theme, style, and functionality are all essential parts of having a memorable venue. Think about what kind of event this is and what kind of response you would like to evoke from your guest. Figuring out what you want out of your event will help you determine the essence of the celebration. The theme or subject of the event will be the inspiration for the setup and décor inside. Tableware, statement pieces, lighting, music, colors, seating, refreshments, and any other personalization will make up the theme of the event. Think about the atmosphere you are trying to create with the décor. Will it be warm, cool, airy, intimate, fun, or sophisticated? The list goes on and creativity takes over. Take stock of your decorative goals for the venue and start trying things out. Its highly recommended to take furniture, décor, and color swatches to the venue to get an idea of what the final product could look like.
If you are finding it hard to spark creativity, get inspiration from other events. Research common themes or trending décor to get a feel of beautiful materials you can include in your décor.
