The first and foremost thing to do is to set a budget for your banqueting facility. You need to have proper idea on how much you can afford so that banquet halls can be selected accordingly. The second is the food that we provide there. Some halls allow you to serve outside catering while some allows only the food prepared in their own catering units. So before reserving the banquet hall you will have to discuss with the authority on which option you would like to have. If you are interested the catering services that the venue offers, then talk to the coordinators on the menu they offer.
Another part of your event is the decorations for the event. Some of the venue coordinators will work with you and give you suggestions on decorating the venue. They will also provide basic decorations such as table coverings and place settings.
Also you have to decide how large you banquet hall would be. Banquet halls should contain the correct size room to go with the number of guests attending your celebrations. It should not be a stifling room. Again if you select a very large room and most of the area will look as empty. In this case arrange the furniture accordingly so that all can be gathered together. You would also need to decide upon the size of the head table, dance floor and stage for the events.
If it is a wedding reception, enquire on various accessories for the events like wedding cakes, balloons, flowers, Djs, dresses, transportation etc. Also you need to follow your decided color theme to every detail of the event. Make sure that professional hands are serving food for your guests. You need to bother on the quality of food offered in the party. So personally taster the items you have decided for the party in advance. The main factors that help you in selecting a proper banquet hall is the price , location, food quality and atmosphere.
To have minimal fuss, book your banquet halls well in advance.
