One of the most important aspects of planning an event is choosing the location. For those that book the wrong venue, there is the risk of facing multiple obstacles on the day of the special occasion. Whether the need is a Corporate Event Venue or a Wedding Reception Hall, consider certain factors before choosing an establishment.


Make sure the location being considered is available on the dates of the occasion. If the date isn’t in stone yet, try to match the event to their current schedule.

Make sure that the facility is large enough. Also, just as important, if the banquet hall is too large, ask if smaller areas are available or if adjustments can be made to make the space multi-functional. If there are only a small number of attendees, a large empty room can make it less intimate. This is also a good time to verify indoor and outdoor options. If choosing outdoor, make sure there is a back up plan should the weather be a factor.


Take the time to tour the facility in person. Online photos and things of that nature might not be updated. An in-person visit is the best way to see that the facility is clean and that it has remained updated.

Food & Drink Options

Determine if the venue offers catering options or if a third party needs to be secured. This is also the time to find out about the policies on alcohol. See what the rules are and make sure they agree with what is needed for the occasion.


Check out other things that might be packaged together which can make for less stress and planning on your part. Services like photographers, florists, photo booths, and even Wi-Fi access can be factors to ask about bundling together. If there is going to be dancing, make sure that an actual dance floor is available. Sometimes, an event coordinator is even included so always ask upfront.


This is something that is frequently overlooked. Make sure that the location offers plenty of parking for guests that is also convenient. It is a good idea to find a place with complimentary parking.

For those looking for a premier venue offering all-inclusive packages to simplify the process, visit aqua reception and see what is offered in the heart of Miami. It will be clear why this is considered a standout location for weddings and events.
