Written by: Sanya Posted in: Tips

After the question is popped and the yes is replied, or the idea becomes an event to be scheduled, the next and most important decision is the venue location. These days the options seem endless, from banquet halls at hotels to private estates with luxurious settings, sometimes it can get a bit overwhelming. So, how does one decide which venue suits their needs? Here at Venues in Paradise we understand that each event has a person attached to it, and therefore we would like to tell you why an estate event allows for individuality to shine through. Read the following points to see the major differences between a banquet hall and a private estate.

  1. A hotel ballroom usually comes with a ton of stipulations, such as only being able to decorate within the perimeters of what they allow, whereas with a private estate your creativity is limitless. No matter how much décor is added to a banquet hall, it is almost impossible to conceal the fact that it’s simply a large room inside of a hotel. But with a private estate your vision comes to life amongst a picturesque environment filled with magical gardens, elegant artwork and well designed ambiance.
  2. In today’s world, there is a mounting trend for “do it yourselfers” or DIY, and hotels tend to frown upon anything that steps outside of the pre-picked ideas that they have used in the past. VIP not only encourages DIY, but we will help you make sure your visualization becomes a reality.
  3. One of the most advantageous things about having your event take place at a private estate is the focus is 100% about you and your affair. There will never be a double booking, which often happens with ballrooms, and results in being rushed or bumped to a different location. You can have the calming guarantee that the estate you choose is absolutely yours for the duration of the event.
  4. And perhaps the thing that makes a private estate so appealing is the flexibility to transform your concepts into something that has never been done before, leaving a lasting memory for you and all your guests to have for a lifetime.
