CHOOSING THE RIGHT VENUE FOR YOUR EVENT

We know that choosing where to host an event can be difficult- especially when all of our venues have so much to offer!  At Bleu Events, we know the most important factors to consider in choosing the right event venue, and we are here to help.  Here are a few things to keep in mind while narrowing your search:

 

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE YOU INVITING?

Sometimes finding the right venue can have a lot to do with numbers.  Most event venues have a legal capacity for which they may not exceed due to safety reasons.  If your guest list fits the capacity for a venue, then look into the square footage and layout of the space you are considering.  The comfort of your guests is important and so is their ability to move freely throughout the room.

Where applicable, refer to the seated and standing capacity listed under each of our event venues.  Our Bleu Events staff is dedicated to helping you find the best fit for your event (both literally and figuratively).

 

WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

Anticipate any specific needs that your guests may have.  If any attendees have physical limitations, you may want to consider a venue with convenient access.  In these situations, also assure that your venue has the capability to provide low seating for those who need it.  With a crowd that is young and rambunctious, an outdoor space could allow for more room to run, play and keep children entertained.

 

WHAT IS THE ENTERTAINMENT?

If you plan on dancing, choose a venue with room for a dance floor.  Having a live band at your event may demand more floor space than having a DJ.  However, a band could also require lower ceilings for better venue acoustics.  There are sound engineers hired in the building process of most event spaces, and certain types of rooms designed specifically to host either noisy or quiet events.

Any slideshow, video, or presentation that you plan to give is also important to think about.  Choosing a venue with a good area to project images and view a screen may be a priority.

 

WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR?

If Bleu Events is catering a sit-down dinner at your event, you will need a venue that can fit the right number of dinner tables and seats.  If you prefer bite-size hors doeuvres throughout the night, choose a venue that is better suited for standing at cocktail tables. With buffet-style dining, allow for wide walkways between tables.
