7 Banquet Hall Must-Haves

March 12, 2015 | Posted in Events

Are you planning a wedding, sweet 16 party, mitzvah, meeting or work conference? Create a memorable experience, starting with your venue. Be sure to look for these banquet hall must-haves to ensure your special event is a success!

Enthusiastic staff. Getting to know the banquet hall staff is a must when planning your event. Their professionalism, enthusiasm, and attention to detail make all the difference for a smooth event.

Good layout. The banquet venue layout must be large enough or adjustable to comfortably host all your guests. Be sure to put space between the speakers and attendees and ensure there is clear visibility to any podium or screen.

Affordable options. All-inclusive meeting packages or wedding packages are your best friend! Whether your budget is $1,000 or $10,000 to reserve an event venue, be sure there are different options that fit within your budget and needs.

Availability. One of the first questions to ask about is availability. If the banquet hall is booked until next year, you can always ask to leave your contact information with the date of your event. Although sharing is a nice gesture, this is one instance where it’s okay! Avoid banquet halls that will book more than one event at their location, to prevent confusion and split resources.

Customization options. Does the banquet hall offer customization? Take advantage of options to personalize and bring your event to the next level. For a wedding, create a romantic and beautiful banquet hall with great lighting and draping to reflect your personality. For a work conference, consider coordinating a special menu and showing brand love in the decor with your company colors. Check out some of Versailles Ballroom’s customization options to get ideas!


Flexibility. It’s not always easy to find a banquet hall that is flexible to cater to food allergies and special diets. Find a banquet hall that does offer flexibility to accommodate your needs. Your guests and attendees will be very thankful, trust us!

Delicious food. This is a given and one of the best parts about choosing a banquet venue! Always test the food before you commit. If for some reason you’re unable to, ask family members, trusted friend or co-worker to help you make the decision.
