It's Just a Party Right? Wrong.
When it comes to planning the ultimate private party a lot of people think it is quite easy. We've all been there, sat down with a glass of wine and a pen and paper, only to be left feeling more confused than when we started...
We recommend asking yourself these questions:
What is your ideal party style?
What do you want your guests to experience?
How many guests do you expect?
Where do you picture the venue in your head?
Once you've answered these: congratulations, you've got yourself a party planning criteria for your private Bristol event. Our advice is to let the venues come to you: you'll filter out those that can't accommodate your dream Bristol private party, and get personalised responses from those that can.
Setting a budget for your Bristol party is a vital step in the planning process. If you're planning a private event in Bristol, you have to be realistic with what you'd like to spend. If it's your birthday, you're going to want to make sure that your guests have the best time possible. We recommend looking at the most important aspects of your Bristol event, such as the venue and drinks on arrival. Setting a budget per person is a great way of controlling the cost. Some venues will offer dry hire, and allow you to bring your own booze, some will have a minimum spend and keep your private Bristol party watered all night if that's what you're after.
Location, location, location
Bristol is well connected and has a fantastic range of public transport. Getting to know the city and where each of the venues is located will help your guests that are travelling in from afar. Luckily, Bristol is small enough to get around without a car, with plenty of parking available at most of the venues. If your party is going to be a little smaller, it's worth considering a location that is close to a number of restaurants. This way you can have your Bristol party at the venue, then eat at the restaurant.
