When it comes to organising birthday parties, it’s important to consider the age of the person whose birthday you’re looking to celebrate, as you will need to choose a party venue that’s appropriate. As an example, you wouldn’t choose to celebrate a 10 year old’s birthday in a restaurant or bar, and you’d probably rather not celebrate your 30th in the local village hall.

If you’re looking for a way to save money on your wedding reception, but still ensure you and your guests all have an amazing time, checking out local party venues is a great idea. We hosted our wedding reception in a lovely country pub that had a huge cellar room for us to enjoy. The bar was open for guests to purchase drinks and we agreed on a meal that was catered by the restaurant’s chefs.

Often the staff at party venues know exactly how to decorate and manage guests to ensure everyone has a great time and that everything runs smoothly.
