Setting Up Shop: Special Requests For Your Banquet Hall Reservation

Posted on

Whether hosting a formal dinner or an extravagant wedding reception, booking a banquet hall can be the first step in making your event memorable and successful. But what happens if you need to make special requests? Many banquet halls offer customization that goes beyond the basic features associated with booking a venue.

Here are some extra items you might request when reserving a banquet hall.

Additional Seating

When planning an event, make sure you have comfortable seating arrangements that meet the needs of all your guests. That's why adding extra seating to your special requests list when reserving a banquet hall is essential.

Parties and events that require more seating than what's usually provided, such as weddings, reunions, and corporate functions, should consider requesting additional chairs or benches. This can range from just a few more chairs in strategic locations to enough seating to accommodate several dozen more people.

It may seem like a small thing, but having enough seating for everyone eliminates the need for some guests to stand or have to sit close together on benches.

The type of extra seating requested will depend largely on the style of the event and personal preference. Options range from folding chairs to couches and even loveseats or benches with cushions. If there's an option for reclining furniture for guests who need it due to mobility issues, that may be something else worth considering when making special requests at the banquet hall.

Remembering these details can help ensure your guests are comfortable throughout the event.

Special Lighting Effects 

Special lighting effects could be the perfect addition if you want to create a unique atmosphere at your event. Many banquet halls offer creative ways to light up the room, from colorful strobe lights to theatrical spotlights.

You may also want to consider options like projectors, uplighting, and patterned light fixtures. Depending on the type of event, you may even be able to request a special color scheme or theme-based lighting arrangements.

For instance, you could ask for blue and white lighting for a wedding. Or, for a gala event, you could have a purple and gold color scheme. Such creative lighting arrangements can drastically improve the ambiance of a room and create a unique experience for guests.

Another option to consider when making special requests at the banquet hall is using dimmer switches for some of the overhead lights. This allows for higher levels of illumination during meals or presentations, then dropping the light level during dancing or other activities that might require less illumination.

With these diverse lighting solutions, you can craft an unforgettable ambiance that will leave your guests in awe.
