What should I consider when looking for Gold Coast christening venues?

A christening venue is one of the first things that you must decide on as the guest list will depend upon its capacity. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you search for the perfect venue for your event:

Venue size

If you're going to invite friends and relatives then you must choose a place that can accommodate many people comfortably, with room for adults to mingle and for children to move around.

Venue location

The neighbourhood can play a significant part in the overall feel of your special day so choose wisely. Make sure that it's convenient for guests who will be travelling from afar and ensure that they're well taken care of when they arrive at their destination.

Venue fees

How much does the venue cost per hour or day? Also ask about additional charges like food and drink expenses, cleaning fees and security deposits. Get details of any hidden costs that may add up in the end. Asking these questions now can avoid misunderstandings later. Check also if there are packages available so that you can save on costs.

Catering options

Does the venue have its own kitchen or will you need to organise external catering? If so, what are the catering options available and how much do they cost? You surely want your special occasion to have great food so this is an important consideration.

Venue Facilities

Does the venue have everything you need? Is there a kitchen for catering purposes? Are there enough toilets? Is there parking available? Do you need a dance floor? A pool deck? It's important to consider these things ahead of time so that you can be sure that your guests will be comfortable.

Book early

You also need to consider how far in advance you need to book the venue in order to get it booked, especially if it's a popular choice among other families who want their special day at this venue too.
