How to Find a Venue for An Event: 6 Considerations

Guest list: Have a general estimate of how many people you can expect for your event prior to finding your venue. With an estimate in mind, you can view spaces that will accommodate your group appropriately. 

Amenities: Does your venue need to be handicap accessible? Is it for a corporate event so wifi access is needed? Do you need a space with an onsite hotel? Consider your must-haves and nice-to-have amenities while researching your venue. 

Aesthetic: Are you looking for sleek and modern, charming and rustic, or classic and simple? Knowing your aesthetic will help you determine the venue that will lend itself to your ideal photography and match decorations. 

Location: Do you want a venue in a city or in the countryside? Determine the location of the venue by considering your guests and where they are coming from, as well as local accommodations and travel options if they are going to be visiting for the event. 

Setting: When choosing the ideal setting for your event, consider the layout of the space and whether it will be inside or outside. We offer three event spaces on our property for formal and casual events with flexible options based on weather conditions and needs.   

Date: While you don’t have to decide on an exact date, it’s helpful to have a general idea of the time of year or month for your event. This will also help you decide whether your event will be indoors or outdoors.
