Choosing a Prom Venue in Saratoga
You're on the prom planning committee; the date for the big event has been set and the theme has been chosen. So far so good, right? One last big question remains: where to hold the prom? There are a few things to consider to ensure your prom is one that stands out and makes next year's committee wonder how they'll top it. Check out some of the best venue options below!
The School Gym
The school gym may sound cliché, but is very popular with schools that hold both a Junior and Senior Prom. By holding your Junior at school, you can save money to ensure a larger budget for your Senior Prom.
Banquet Halls are a great choice for proms. You can choose the right size hall to match the expected number of prom goers, whether it’s only a few dozen attending, or hundreds. Veteran’s halls (Such as VFW or American Legion), State armories, fraternal organization halls (Knights of Columbus, Masonic Lodges, Moose, Elks) and convention centers are all great options.
Please note: A caterer is required when holding events at banquet halls. Some banquet halls have their own caterer on retainer, while others let you provide your own.
Restaurants with Banquet Halls
Restaurants with banquet halls go one step further than typical banquet halls; they provide the location as well as the catering. They usually have complete dinner and beverage packages that are tailored for proms. These locations book early, so plan accordingly.
Things to Remember
When looking at venues, remember that each place has different rules on decorating. Be sure to visit the potential venues beforehand to see how they handle crowds. Lastly, don’t forget to consult with your photographer on possible locations to take prom photos!
