Choosing The Right Reception Venue

The right reception venue can make or break your event. See below for some great things to keep in mind to ensure you get the best venue hire in the Newcastle area for weddings, corporate functions, or other events.


Getting to and from your venue location is a big part of your guests’ experience, so ensure you speak to as many guests as possible to see where they are located and if the venue you are looking at is appropriate. Recommending a handful of well-reviewed accommodation nearby goes a long way, and local taxi service contact details can be very helpful for your invitees.


How many guests do you have? Is it possible the numbers will increase or decrease after picking a venue? If you are looking for venue hire in the Newcastle area, there are a range of options, including the Lake Macquarie Yacht Club which boasts multiple rooms to choose from ranging from a 40-160+ capacity.


Ensure your venue can supply not only the best quality catering for your guests, but serve them in a timely manner. No matter the event, hungry guests are unhappy ones, and it will reflect poorly on the entire event.


Organising an event of any sort can be stressful, but a venue package can help to ensure your venue has all the bits and pieces you may not have thought of. It can also prevent the job of bringing items to and from the event which can inhibit your ability to be an attentive host and hinder your own enjoyment.


Your experience with staff will most likely be the same as your guests’ experience, so take note of how you are taken care of from your first point of contact. Did they greet you kindly? How helpful were they? Did they value your business?


The quality is in the details. Guests will notice the little extras they receive from a venue which can make the event feel much more complete and they will feel they are being taken care of.

Lake Macquarie Yacht Club weddings, corporate functions and private functions offer peace of mind for all of the above and more. To book your next event, please call us on 02 4945 5522.
