There are so many things you will have to think about and do if you’re planning on hosting a large event. You’ll need to organize food with your caterers, find decorators, ensure the sound system is working properly, organize ushers, plan the entire event from start to finish etc. One of the most important things you will have to do is choose the best venue. There are so many Toronto venues to choose from, you may get overwhelmed. However, we will now look at a couple of guidelines that will definitely help you to make the best decision possible so that you can have the perfect event that everyone will be talking about for months!
If you want to book a highly popular venue, then you will need to act fast and book it months ahead of time. In some cases, you may still be able to book a popular venue weeks before your event, but you will probably have to pay much more than if you booked it 4 – 6 months ahead of time. So, it is best to be the early worm and book your venue as early as you can to get the best deal and ensure that your event space will be available when you need it.
In the case that you’re hosting a wedding, you should think about whether you’d want to host both the wedding and reception at the same venue. Many people opt to host both events in the same space at the same time. You may want to consider a venue that offers in-house catering since it will make the event go a lot smoother. In-house caterers typically have a couple of set menus to choose from or your can provide a new menu. If you’re not using the in-house caterers, then you should ensure that the venue has a kitchen space for the caterers you hire to set up and store food on that big day. Also, if there’s a huge cake involved, then you need to make sure the venue has a large enough fridge to hold the entire cake or you may risk the icing melting among other problems.
If you’re expecting many of your guests to be traveling from out of town to your event, then you should consider choosing an event that is near to their accommodation or hotels. You can also choose a venue that is near to a transportation hub or is relatively easy to find so that your guests don’t get lost and can easily find their way to and from your event. You can also consider hiring taxis or a bus to transport your guests if your budget allows. This will ensure everyone is well taken care of and that they all arrive on time so that your event can start on time.
