Outdoor venues rental guide

To rent a venue in the most optimal way, there are a couple of things you might want to take into consideration before renting the space. 

How much does it cost?

You can rent venues by the hour or by the day. Prices vary depending on how many people  fit inside the venues and whether or not there are any special amenities such as catering or parking available at any of the locations.

What kind of space do I need?

Venues come in all shapes and sizes—from large open fields to small backyards—so make sure that you know what kind of space you need before booking a venue! If you have more guests than seats at your event location, consider renting some, so everyone can enjoy themselves comfortably throughout the night (and maybe even hang out after!). Also, consider whether there's enough natural shade or shelter from the sun at your chosen location.

What type of cuisine do I want?

Consider what kind of food or drinks will be served at your event and make sure that they won't go bad if left out in the heat all day long! Also, think if you want to serve appetizers, full dishes, alcoholic beverages, etc. Is the venue suited for the type of food and drinks you’re going for (e.g.: a cocktail style party is probably not going to support 3-course meals). 

Who do I want to invite?

Is it going to be friends, family, or a gathering of strangers? Are you preparing an event which needs to have invitations sent out or a small get-together where you’ll secure all the details via text? Is it going to cause offense if you don’t invite certain people (depending on the event), and would it be customary to invite plus ones? 

Is there a theme I should consider?

Are you going to have a formal party, or a laid back one? Black tie, or casual? Let your guests know so that everyone has the opportunity to dress accordingly and feel comfortable. Let’s stick with Hawaiian t-shirts and flip-flops, or with elegant clothing. Mixing it up might be just a little… odd.
