Avoid These Costly Mistakes When Choosing a Catering Hall

Posted by Amanda on 2/3/13

Whenever you are planning a big event like a wedding reception, a family reunion, a coming of age sweet sixteen party, or some other event it is important to locate a catering hall that is suitable for the occasion. Any venue needs to be able to accommodate all the guests comfortably, and have a good atmosphere so that people can enjoy the event. Sometimes people are in a rush to choose a catering hall that they spend more money than they should. Here are some tips to help you avoid making a costly mistake.

Make Sure to Plan Ahead

The biggest mistake that people make when planning a party is waiting too long to do the planning. When choosing a catering hall make sure to do so at least six months from the date. This will help you lock into a lower price and give you a better chance to shop around a little.

Choose Right Size Venue

There are many sizes of catering halls to choose from and this can be a little overwhelming. While many would love to hold their event in the biggest, most elaborate hall, it might not be feasible with the budget. Choose the catering hall that is the right fit for the number of people coming. Renting a hall that fits 500 will cost more than one that holds 300.

Take A Look At Services

Another mistake that people make quite frequently is paying for services of the catering hall that they will not be using. Catering halls add in a lot of different services that they build into the overall price. Many times you have the option of being able to pick and choose the different services you want to use and save some money.

Holding an event in a catering hall is one of the best ways to make sure that the event is memorable and stress free. However, you must take some time in your planning to make sure that you do not spend more money than you need to.
