Venues obviously play a huge part in your event. I mean, where else would you host your guests if you have no venue. The type of event you want to have determines the type of venue you should consider. And when it comes to venues, you can never start considering options too early. Even if you are the type that tends to postpone decision making till the last minute, this isn’t one of such. Here are three simple reasons why you should start searching for a venue months before your event.
It leaves room to consider many options
I cannot emphasize this enough, whether you’re celebrating a birthday, throwing a surprise bridal shower, getting married or having a meeting, you should start checking out options at least three months to the event. This might even be too short if you’re having a wedding. I personally know that some event centres get booked a year ahead. Yes, Nigerians don’t play with their parties. To avoid selecting an event space just because it is available rather than it suiting your taste, start looking out for venues fast. Check ogaVenue, for halls in your preferred location, check it’s availability and book online. As soon as you find a venue that suits your event needs, ensure that you make a down payment to avoid stories that touch.
It lends direction to planning your event
Naturally, when you get a venue for your event, you start to visualize seating arrangements for your guests. And also decoration ideas that will fit the place and other stuff like that. Selecting a venue early helps you to stop making wild guesses or toying with ideas that won’t work in the setting you selected. You might even come up with a theme for your party based on what your venue looks like. Also, if you decide to hire vendors you can visit Weddingz to get all the vendors you need to cater for your event needs, they might need to see the venue to give them a better idea of what you have in mind.
Your Guests have enough time to prepare
This is great if you are the type of person that loves big parties. You can start sending out invites as soon as you have made a decision about hall. This gives sufficient time for your guests to start clearing their schedules and plan to attend your event. There’s a high chance that even if the venue is too far, they have adequate time to mentally prepare for it. Also, you may get more help than you expect in making the venue party ready.
