Considerations for Booking a Banquet Hall for Your Next Cleveland Event

Cleveland Banquet event at Michaud's Catering and Event CenterOrganizing your next event, whether it's a wedding, a birthday party, anniversary celebration or a corporate meeting, is quite the undertaking. There are so many things to think about, from food, to entertainment, to decorations. One of the biggest decisions you will need to make, however, is where you are going to hold the event in the first place. A Cleveland banquet hall can offer you a multitude of benefits, but before you book the first one you come across, there are few things you will need to consider.


Probably one of your biggest concerns with planning an event, no matter what its size, is staying within a specific budget. It's pretty amazing how quickly even the smallest details add up. Knowing your budget when shopping around for your perfect Cleveland banquet hall is going to be very helpful. Not only will it give you an idea of the size of the rooms you can afford at different venues, it will also help you to stay on track and not overspend.


Chances are you have some idea of the feel you want to have when your guests walk into your event. When you tour a banquet hall, make sure you pay attention to the architecture and existing décor inside the rooms. If it doesn't quite fit with the theme or feel of your event, that doesn't necessarily mean that banquet hall isn't the right venue. You may just have to do a bit more decorating on your own. Make sure you check with the venue's policies to find out if there are any restrictions.

Minimums and Capacities

Most banquet halls have minimum requirements on the number of people you need to have before you can even book a room. For instance, if you have only 50 people attending your event, you cannot book a larger room that has a minimum requirement of 150 people. All rooms have maximum occupancies, so you cannot book a small room with a maximum occupancy of 125 if you have 150 people attending.

Services and Amenities

One of the best things about a banquet hall is that they offer services and amenities that many other types of venues may not have, which would mean additional costs to hire or rent them. Knowing what types of services and amenities can greatly help you make a decision. For instance, a banquet hall may provide tables, chairs and linens. They may have a full-sized kitchen and on-site catering. This eliminates the need to find a caterer. If you are insistent upon having a specific caterer, make sure you check to see whether or not bringing in an outside caterer is allowed. Some banquet halls will have audio visual equipment available for rent. A good banquet hall will also have resources to other services that you might need that they don't specifically offer, such as flowers, photographers and entertainment.
