Melbourne Dj Hire worked at a birthday over the weekend where the venue just was not right for the type of party and also the number of guests. The venue was lovely, it was modern, well designed and decorated, had plenty of space for guests to sit and stand. The issue was that the venue was too big for the amount of people attending. That is why the party seemed a little lacklustre and the dancefloor never really took off because it was so big and only 2 people at a time got on the floor to dance, the venue had its bar located in a little nook and lots of people congregated around that corner and never left. This is why picking the right venue is imperative to a successful event.
Melbourne Dj hire have also worked at a very prestigious venue that is spaced over 2 levels. We have had clients hold weddings and birthdays there but even though the venue looks luxurious and elegant guests are separated and located on different floors. The hosts are to climb a flight of stairs to get to another level to mingle with guests. When it is time to cut the cake one whole level of guests need to climb down the stairs into a cramped room for speeches, cake or the first dance.
When it comes to picking the right venue, Melbourne Dj hire would always suggest to pick a venue that is smaller and cozy. If you have too much space and not enough people to fill that space it doesn’t really feel like a party. People are seated in their own corners and tables and don’t really mingle. When people are close together and are up standing and close to the dance-floor there is more chance that they would dance.
When it comes to seating try not to have so many tables and chairs around. People sit down and get too comfortable and may not get up to dance or socialise. If there are older guests then have a little corner of tables for them to relax in. But other than that, bar tables and bar stools are great for people to rest their feet or chat for a short time but easy enough for them to transition to the dancefloor.
So here are a few tips Melbourne Dj hire have about picking the right venue. Hope this helps you make up your mind about which venue to pick and how to lay out the space.
