Your Cart is Empty
Have you ever received an invitation to a venue where your heart sinks because there's something about that space you just don't like?
There are some surprising reasons guests won't like a particular venue.
Here are nine reasons.
2. Cash bars
Cash bars are typical of industry nights where the association or club event organiser hasn't put a tab behind the bar, letting guests pay for their own drinks, but they also occur at receptions where couples are on a strict budget. Either way, it kills the vibe.
3. Dancefloors and awful carpet
There will always be guests who simply hate dancing.But if your client is celebrating a major life milestone or you want your corporate guests to let their hair down, a dancefloor is a must as a venue inclusion.
Historic venues are notorious for using patterned carpet, as well as high-traffic city hotels. These can look really awful with your tablescapes. Event stylists shudder at having to deal with lurid carpet.
8. Bad lighting
Guests loathe venues with fluorescent strip lighting which gives parties all the warmth of a dental surgery. The ones that flicker are the worst!
9. Boring food, furniture, decor and entertainment
These days guests are getting increasingly higher event expectations thanks to Instagram. Buffets in bain maries just don't cut it!
