When renting a reception hall for a quinceanera or any other event, there are several important factors to consider, including the budget, number of guests, pricing, location, and any discounts or packages offered by the hall. Parents and godparents of a quinceanera often visit a number of venues prior to choosing a location, which should be reserved at least six months in advance.
Quinceanera.com offers a complete guide to planning the perfect birthday bash for any quinceanera, including suggestions for finding the right reception venue. One fast way to start narrowing down reception halls is to decide which location would be most accessible to the guests. For example, if the quinceanera celebration includes the traditional church mass, then the reception hall should not be too far from the chosen church. Parking space can also be an issue, so be sure to check with the venue owner to disclose any parking or valet fees.
If a venue meets location, parking and seating requirements, asking the owner or event coordinator a few more questions can help make the final decision, according to Quinceanera.com. If the price fits the budget, ask what is included (such as food, tables and chairs, and decorations) and if there are any hidden fees (such as taxes, photography, alcohol and cleaning). Before committing to a venue, ask for a few days to review the contract to clarify the terms of purchase and any rules or restrictions.
