10 Reasons to Rent a Banquet Hall

When it’s time to consider renting a banquet hall, there are several valid reasons why it pays to hire professionals instead of trying to handle everything on your own. In most major U.S. cities you won’t have trouble finding viable options when searching for a “banquet hall near me.” Below are 10 reasons to rent a banquet hall for weddings and other memorable parties:

(1) Adaptability

A banquet hall can be the perfect setting for a variety of celebrations. Whether you’re hosting a wedding, quinceanera, baby shower or corporate event, the hall can be adapted for whatever you need. Banquet halls have the ability to easily change layouts, décor and functionality to suit your needs and accommodate your guests.

(2) It’s a one-stop-shop

If you choose to utilize the banquet hall’s catering, tableware, furniture, and other services, you’ll simplify your to-do list. Oftentimes you’ll even receive a discount on combining multiple add-ons or choosing a package, versus just simply renting the hall. There is plenty to do when planning a big party, so make the most of the expertise of the banquet hall you choose.

(3) Hire an Event Planner

A reputable on-site event planner can help you coordinate all the necessary details of your party. Some Los Angeles banquet halls will include an event planner with certain packages. This option helps with small but time-consuming tasks, such as finding a florist, band, photographer and more.

(4) Stunning Ambiance

The hall you choose should be spacious and have the ability to accommodate any size celebration you’re planning. Moreover, it must be visually appealing, both inside and out. You’ll be taking pictures and making memories to last a lifetime at this location.

Some parties begin with cocktail hour on a patio or with gorgeous photos outdoors. Try to find a banquet hall with options for hosting both indoors and outdoors. And if you want to throw your party completely outside, be sure your venue has a back-up plan in case of inclement weather.

(6) Entertainment

The hall you rent for your event will often have a house band or disc jockey for you to book. If not, they can usually recommend the perfect talent for your event and musical tastes. Again, if you can find a package deal that includes a house band or DJ, it’s worth adding it on. Just be sure to read reviews first or ask to watch the house musicians in action before booking.

(7) Dazzling Decorations

Depending on your budget and the hall you choose, a professional team will sometimes decorate the space for you. If this is the case, you’ll save time, hassle and energy. Some venues will even provide you with table cloths and centerpieces for your party. If not, you may have to rely upon the creativity of your family and friends to make the hall look perfect.

(8) Children’s Play Area

There is nothing worse than children running rampant at a classy reception or elegant event. Ask if your venue has a separate area for children to play in. Some offer toys and games that will keep the kids entertained for hours so adults can have a more enjoyable evening. If that’s not an option, consider making your soiree an adult-only affair, or providing your own entertainment for children.

(9) Ceremony and Reception

If the party plans are for a wedding, the same room can be used for both the ceremony and reception at a hall. The expert staff can promptly re-set the room in between events while the celebrants are in an adjacent room or patio enjoying cocktails.

(10) Inclusive packages

When it’s available, some banquet halls offer a complete package with nearly all services included. This ties the entire experience together with a pretty little bow on top for one price. You may find halls with different packages based on your needs and budget. This option alleviates so much stress and will allow you to enjoy the celebration wholeheartedly.
