- What time of year is the event? This will help determine if it should be indoor or outdoor.
- How many guests will you be inviting? You will need a space that comfortably accommodates all of your guests.
- What time of day will you be having your event? This may impact the theme of the party; for example, if you wanted a club-like dance party, evening may be best. If in the evening do you want the sunset to be visible?
- How formal do you want the party to be?
- What is the theme?
- Will you be serving sit down dinner, buffet style dinner or just appetizers and desserts?
- What type of entertainment are you looking to provide? A DJ? Live band?
