5 Things to Consider When Searching for A Function Venue in Perth


Planning a function or event? It can always be a tiring experience planning and organising a successful party. You have to consider a lot of things including the function venue. Whether it´s a corporate get-together, birthday party or even something as large as a wedding, picking out the best function venue Perth has to offer can take a lot of time and thought. Obviously, the appropriate location will depend greatly on the specifics of your event, and different venues are a better fit for certain types of functions. But there is a process that can help you find the place you’re looking for. Let’s take a look at some of the top considerations.


Budget


Given that it can be the biggest constraint to your options, the cost and your budget is the obvious first consideration you need to make.  That’s not to say this should be the main deciding factor in your decision-making process, but often if you’re organising an event on behalf of a business or community body, in which case you will have a specific budget you need to work around. Keep in mind that being a good organiser may mean spending less on the venue and more on entertainment, food and drinks. The best thing to do is to do some research beforehand, and find a venue that costs less but looks absolutely amazing for that price. 


Amenities



This usually comes down to the type of event you will be hosting. If it’s a business event, you’re likely going to need pretty comprehensive audio/visual equipment, for example. Even more important, if it’s more of a dinner event – does the venue have a kitchen, tables, chairs, decorations and service staff to take care of your guests? Once you´ve decided on the kind of event you’re having and what you need, it becomes clear what kind of venue you’re going to be looking for. Make sure the venue has all your necessities at hand. 


Location



Perth isn´t the largest city in the world from a geographical perspective, and generally it’s not going to a problem for your guests to travel to the event location no matter where they live. But location should always be a consideration with due respect given to your guest-list. Are your guests coming from out of town? Are they familiar with the city? You may need to take this into consideration and choose a relatively easy-to-find venue.

Additionally if you are hosting an event for people that live in a certain district of Perth, it makes sense to hold the event in that general area.


Capacity



This may come into the equation when considering services and amenities, but certainly the size of the building comes into the planning. Everything may be perfect but if your guests simply aren’t going to fit, it’s simply not going to work. There’s nothing worse than trying to relax when you don´t have your own space. 

Also consider how easy it is to access parking and the number of spaces you’ll need with respect tot your guest-list.


Style and Mood



The exterior and interior of a building can go a long way in creating a certain mood for your guests. The decorations need to be apt for the occasion. The guests need to feel nice and welcomed. A good function organiser will understand the power of these and choose a venue that conveys an appropriate ambience for the event. D├ęcor and other decorative aspects should be considered with reference to the nature of the event.
