When many people think of weddings, people often think of large halls filled with 300 people, and tables scattered across a carpeted floor.

Party Planning Tips:

Invitations: When planning a party, there are certain things that should be on your checklist to make sure you and your guests have an amazing time! Organization is key in making sure your party goes smoothly, so about a month before you intend to host your party, you should make sure that you send out invitations and ensure that you get an accurate headcount by including a way to RSVP. It’s also helpful to include things such as a dress code if the venue requires one or the theme of your party. 

Catering: Once you know the headcount, you should start looking into external catering for the party, if the venue is not providing it themselves. If you are looking into renting a restaurant or bar for the occasion, then odds are that they will have some sort of dining package available or a drink minimum that might be included in your rental. Finding catering is normally a pretty straightforward process as most of your favorite restaurants will offer in house catering packages or may even have recommended partners with whom they prefer to work. According to Tagvenue data, you can expect a catering package to cost around $20 to $45 per person. If you plan on including drinks, this figure could increase a bit depending on the type and amount of beverages or alcohol. You may also face extra charges for staff.

Music: Music at parties is a must, and if you are looking for someone to take care of curating a playlist, you might want to consider hiring a DJ. The positives of hiring a DJ is their flexibility in playing the kind of music you like to hear. Another option would be hiring a band to play at your party. Cover bands often have a wide variety of music in their repertoire and can create a beautiful ambience. For instance, if you want a chill atmosphere for your party, a jazz quartet will be a great match and will be something that people definitely remember.

At the party:  Remember, the best thing about having a party at a small venue is that you don’t have to manage the kitchen or mix the drinks, everything is handled by the venue. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the event.

Small venues make for great spaces to hold memorable parties. They create intimate environments where each of your guests can easily interact with one another and you. These venues can host a wide array of occasions, and Tagvenue can help you find the one that is a perfect fit for your party!
