Tips for working with venues for your wedding
Did you know we can supply your event wherever it may be? We work with venues all over Western Australia to supply your choice of cutlery, crockery, furniture, styling pieces and more for your event. Whilst a lot of venues supply their own pieces with event packages, they are open to the hire of Hire Society styling and tableware too. So make sure you ask if you’d like to add your own flair by including one of our linen serviettes or a even a different timber or wire dining chair for your reception. Here are some tips from Royal Freshwater Bay events manager Emily O’Connell to keep in mind when bringing in extra hire items for your event:
- Ask the venue if they allow hanging / floral installations in the their venue. It is important to know when booking a venue what the venue will allow based on current trends. A lot of venues don’t have the ability to hang things from the ceiling. RFBYC do!
- Always ask the venue if a midnight bump out is necessary (especially in peak season) as this could come as a rather expensive “surprise” a couple of weeks prior to your wedding or event as suppliers charge extra to bump out at midnight.
- At your meeting with your events coordinator, giving them a list of suppliers who will be there on the day and their contact details is very helpful. As a venue we can touch base with them with any questions we have, which saves the client having to go back and forth. It also allows us to make sure every supplier you have engaged for your event is there on the day.
- As a venue we work with a bunch of amazing suppliers, so if you need some advise speak to your venue as they would have suppliers they work with on a regular basis and who they can recommend! Thank you Emily for sharing with us these very helpful tips – certainly makes for a more stress-free experience when it comes to hire and venues. Don’t forget we are here to help and can also coordinate with venues, event managers and stylists to make your life easy. The more information you can give us when it comes to floor plans, drop off points and contact details for those people giving you a helping hand on your big day – the better! And we offer a 24/7 support line to all Hire Society customers.
