This entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime.
From birthdays to weddings, to all the family functions before and after, having a suitable venue to host your events is crucial. Of course, there are plenty of venues to choose from, depending on your preferences. Some love the great outdoors or even the lawn of their residence, while others prefer a restaurant or a more closed environment for a private feel. But going ahead with many venues requires additional preparations such as decor, catering, and more. Outdoor venues also add additional uncertainty with the weather, plus extra preparations to set up accommodations and take food outside.
Banquet halls are your best bet. Why? They save you the extra expenses and efforts as they provide all their services under one roof! Banquet halls are also very popular today because not everyone seems to enjoy events out in open or at home.
Here are some of the wonderful advantages of booking a banquet hall for any occasion:
1. Quality Service and Staff
All customers demand good service today. Most people are educated and have higher expectations than ever before. Banquet halls consist of highly-professional individuals that include managers, coordinates, waiters, chefs, and sweepers.
They are highly-trained and have years of experience. And they know how to attend to all their guests. They manage to efficiently run your event. And in case anything goes wrong, they always have a plan B to execute your event as desired without giving you a chance to complain.
2. Reliable In-House Catering
A banquet hall also offers catering services so that you don’t have to spend time on looking for caterers on your own. You can also choose the menu yourself and customize it the way you like it. Usually, banquet halls charge per head according to the chosen menu so you can easily calculate the total amount. They also hire professional cooks and trained waiters so that you can completely rely on their catering services.
3. Accommodates a Large Group
A banquet hall has the capacity to host anywhere from 15-1,000 guests or more. Imagine if you wanted to celebrate your child’s first birthday with all your extended family and friends. Would you be able to accommodate all your guests at home? Maybe not. A banquet hall easily accommodates all your guests with ease, without suffocating everyone. This is especially true with weddings, which typically involve 100 people or more.
Booking a banquet hall will give you and your guests plenty of space to dance and you can decide how loud you want the music. What’s more? Large spaces are easier to decorate in a grand manner. So no matter what the occasion, there’s ample space for everyone to move around.
4. Impressive Decor
A banquet hall has in-house event designers who decorate the venue as per your preferences and budget. Whether it’s little details like flowers, ribbons, lights, and table linens, they can personalize every detail. Even if it’s a decoration for a specific theme, you can let them know so that they can put their creativity to use.
5. Cleanliness and Maintenance
Imagine your wedding is going on and you see a filthy stain on one of the table cloths. That can happen if you get services from a random vendor. But when it comes to a banquet hall, their cleanliness and maintenance is unquestionable. From dishes to floors, and table cloths to curtains, everything glitters beautifully.
6. Lights and Photography Settings
Good lighting and exceptional photography is what everyone desires today. Banquet halls have a knack for delivering the backdrop and lighting you want for ambiance and great pictures and videos. No matter what your event theme may be, the team behind your magical night makes every moment count.
Most well-known banquet halls team up with experienced photographers that get really creative to take the most breathtaking shots. Let’s not forget the addition of impressive lights which bring a ton of glam and shimmer to any event! This lethal combination can make your event pretty memorable!
7. Cost Effective
Booking a banquet hall is cost-effective. How? Spending separately on venue, decoration, catering, and even coordinators can be expensive while a banquet hall provides all these facilities at an affordable price.
Organizing an event is no big deal when you have a banquet hall that takes care of all major concerns when planning an event. It’s an ideal choice for most events today. Hoteliers have gotten creative, bringing the outdoors to the indoors! So make sure you start looking for the right venue early before you end up compromising on one that doesn’t leave you with a happy camper!
