Why Choose an Exclusive Hire Venue for That Special Occasion?

Whether it’s a wedding, birthday party or just a family gathering, choosing the venue is one of the most important decisions that you’ll have to make.

One thing that you’ll have to bear in mind is whether you’ll be getting the venue on an exclusive hire basis or not.

We’re going to take a look at exactly what ‘exclusive hire’ means and why it’s something you shouldn’t overlook for your next special event.

Whether it’s a wedding, birthday party or just a family gathering, choosing the venue is one of the most important decisions that you’ll have to make.

One thing that you’ll have to bear in mind is whether you’ll be getting the venue on an exclusive hire basis or not.

We’re going to take a look at exactly what ‘exclusive hire’ means and why it’s something you shouldn’t overlook for your next special event.

What Does Exclusive Hire Mean?

Exclusive hire means that you’re guaranteed privacy for the duration of your event, having sole usage of the venue for the period of time you choose to book it for.

Many larger hotels and venues have such a big space that they need to be hosting more than one event at a time to make use of the space.

This may not be an issue for some, but for others, it’s essential that you have the space to yourself.

This means that the whole venue, its grounds and staff are all fully at your disposal for the event.

The only people at the venue will be those who are attending your event, with no strangers randomly walking in.

Where things will vary is that some venues will supply things such as furniture and catering, while others will require you to provide this for yourself.

What Are the Benefits?

Obviously, the main benefit of exclusive hire is the privacy that it gives you. If you have your event in a venue which is partially or fully open to the public, you’re always going to have people who aren’t guests walking in, and it takes something away from the event.

It ultimately gives you much more of a feeling that the space is yours for the day and that you’re not just renting it out.

However, there are loads of other benefits too. For example, you’ll be able to spend some time at the venue before the event starts to make sure that everything is set up just how you want it, being able to bring in your suppliers as you wish.

Having that bit more privacy also means you can go a bit more outlandish with the decorations if you wish!

You might not think this kind of thing would happen, but if you’re sharing a venue, you may find that some cheeky normal hotel guests will try to gatecrash and nab a few free drinks!

In addition, the fact that the staff are serving you and only you is a big plus as well. It means that your event will be their sole focus, so you don’t need to worry about them getting distracted looking after other guests or customers.

Some exclusive hire venues (such as ourselves here at Broadoaks!) will also offer accommodation as part of the hire package.

This means that you and all of your guests are sorted for somewhere to stay, all without having to leave the premises, which is ideal if your guests are planning on having a drink and won’t be able to drive home afterwards. (This is also important if your guests will be travelling from far away to come to your event).

You’ll sometimes get everything packaged together as one deal as well, helping to keep costs down.

Ultimately, exclusive use venue hire gives you an all in one solution for your event, which you can host knowing that everything is planned to your specifications and that you won’t have to share your special occasion with any uninvited guests!
