What is the Best Way to Choose a Miami Event Venue?

Choosing the best Miami even venue can be difficult. Luckily Riverside Miami is here to help!

What’s the Size of Your Event?

The first thing that you will want to consider is the size of your event. What you don’t want is to book a venue that is too large for the event that you are having and then have it seem like it was under-attended. This not only reflects badly on you, but it also may cost a chunk of your budget that you were not expecting to spend. 

It can be difficult to gauge how many people are going to attend your event based on how many are invited alone, but you don’t want to wait until you have RSVPs to book a venue or it may be too late. Estimate the number of people that will be attending and go off that number. 

What’s Your Budget?

Budget is going to the number one thing that limits you as you plan your event. If you stretch your budget too tight on your venue alone, you will not be able to afford other expenses that will make the event memorable. That is why it is so important for you to select a venue that fits well within your budget. If this seems like a difficult task, you can consider charging your guests for attendance at the event. However, it is best to stick to your initial budget than rely on funds that may or may not come in.

Where is Your Event?

The other thing that you have to consider when you are preparing to book your venue is where your guests are coming from. If you have a lot of guests that are coming in from out of town, it may be a good idea to host the event close to the airport or other transportation center. If all your guests are already in town, you may want to host it closer to where they are located. Location will matter in attendance, and you will notice a drop in the number of guests interested when they do not have access to adequate lodging or transport.

What Does the Venue Include?

Each venue is going to have its own set of policies about what is included with their venue booking. You’ll want to be vigilant about what is standard in any given venue booking and what is extra so that you don’t end up getting charged for something you did not expect. This will also help you determine what you need to purchase in order to have the venue look put together.

What’s Your Theme?

Theming is going to be the thing that sets the tone for the whole event. Without a proper theme, your guests may struggle to figure out how to dress and how to behave at the event. Guests who know they are attending a black-tie gala are going to behave far differently than guests who are invited to a party at a nightclub. Be sure to set your expectations early on so you can better gauge whether a venue will be equipped to handle your theme.
