Inside the Best Banquet Halls in Toronto & GTA

Finding the appropriate banquet hall for your event is difficult, there’s a lot to consider and you won’t want to rush through and skip some crucial elements. Before deciding which banquet is better than another, it’s important to first assess your situation. What sort of event are you planning? How many guests will be attending? This should be the initial starting factor when looking for the appropriate banquet. This should be the first deciding factor because you need to decide how much space you’ll need. If you expect a lot of people and expect them to dance, you’ll need a space that not only accommodates the seating and dining area, but also provides a dancefloor with enough room – so people don’t feel crammed together. While it’s good to have enough space, you also don’t want to have too much space. If you have a banquet hall that has too much space for the amount of guests you have, it can make the experience more awkward and take away from the event. However, it’s smarter to book a larger venue, if you have too little space, that’s much more of an issue than having too much. That doesn’t mean to go overboard, but if you can’t find a hall with the perfect amount of space, settling for slightly bigger is better than slightly smaller. You can fill the unused space with decorations so it doesn’t seem too big.

Planning the type of event is also crucial because a certain atmosphere needs to be set and kept. Wedding receptions, anniversary parties, and other social events demand a more casual atmosphere. You don’t want to book a venue that’s so classy that people feel underdressed when attending a casual or semi-formal event. For award ceremonies or corporate events, a more elegant and formal venue would be optimal. A good rental service should have options varying along this spectrum to fit your needs. Some may even provide event planners to help with decorating and designing the floor plan to help accommodate your desired atmosphere. You should take into consideration the outside of the venue. Whether there’s handicapped parking, accessibility, or even enough parking space for your guests, so they don’t park on smaller streets nearby. Although it doesn’t have anything to do with the event itself or what goes on inside the venue, it still adds a positive element and requires planning.

After having booked a banquet hall, you don’t want to be surprised with what it looks like in person.

You should visit your banquet hall at least once before deciding to book it.

Once you’ve narrowed down the results and found some appropriate banquet halls, it’s time to consider what additional services they can offer. Typically, they offer catering services at least. In most cases, this is what you want. Most events that take place at a banquet hall call for quality food, and a catering service fills that need. Selecting all your services through one provider makes it much easier to manage and it’s convenient too. Be sure that the catering services can provide the menu you desire, and keep in mind to have some vegan, vegetarian, and non-dairy opinions for those with dietary restrictions and allergies – you want to be sure that the catering services will be able to accommodate them. The catering service typically offers a tasting menu, so you can see if the food choices you picked out are up to your liking. Finally, you want to make sure there’s enough equipment for your event. Aside from chairs and tables, you’ll most likely need speakers, microphones, and lighting equipment. It’s smart to inquire about the cost and availability of additional staff.
