One of the best types of parties to plan is the celebration of someone’s landmark anniversary. What could be better than marking the occasion of 50 years of wedded bliss? For a South Coast event venue that takes pride in all of the beautiful brides that have celebrated their wedding day, it is an honor for us to help plan a party in Swansea to honor a couple that has been together for 50 golden years.
Venus de Milo is more than just a banquet hall in Swansea, MA. Our venue hosts a wide range of wedding receptions, social gatherings and special occasions throughout the year. As a world-famous and award-winning restaurant, many local families and couples from all over the northeastern region, come here to celebrate life’s landmark events. Birthdays, anniversaries, community events, charity auctions, awards dinners and much more are all celebrated here at The Venus.
Selecting the Date
While it might seem logical to just throw the party on the actual anniversary date, the date that you choose will depend on a number of things. Will guests be coming in from out-of-town? If you have a lot of people outside the area coming to our South Coast event venue, you may want to host the party over a weekend to make it easier for travelers. Will you be throwing a surprise party? If you plan a party in Swansea that is a surprise to the guests of honor, you likely won’t want to host it on the actual anniversary date. Sometimes a couple of weeks before or after the special date will work best in order to pull off the surprise.
Securing the Venue
Make sure to visit our banquet hall in Swansea, MA to see it for yourself. We have lots of options and space to accommodate your needs and your guests. Take a tour of the facility and ask about our menu items to help you narrow down your plans. We host a lot of social gatherings and special occasions here, so we have a lot of options for you to choose from for your event. Try to plan as early in advance as you can to give you a better chance of getting your desired date. If you need the space during our busy wedding season, ask about alternate dates, times and possibilities that will work with your schedule.
Create the Guest List
Think about who you want to invite to your anniversary celebration. When you plan a party in Swansea at a professional venue, they will often charge per person, so the guest list numbers are important. The per person charge helps the venue know how much food and drinks will be required, so make sure to get at least a ballpark figure in mind when you tour the facility. A more accurate guest list should also be created as soon as possible to help you send out invitations for the party at our South Coast event venue.
Send the Invitations
Try to send out the invites as soon as you can, giving guests at least a few weeks to plan. If you will be sending invitations to your social gatherings and special occasions to a lot of guests who are outside the northeastern region, make sure to give some extra time. Make sure to include a note about RSVP so you will know how many people to expect. If the party is a surprise, make sure to express that clearly to potential guests so they won’t spoil it to the guests of honor. Include directions and the address to our banquet hall in Swansea, MA so everyone can arrive without complications.
Hire the Vendors
Consider hiring a DJ or band that can play music from the era that the couple met or got married in to help bring the night all together. See if you can find out if they have a special song or songs that they will enjoy hearing and dancing to when they celebrate their marriage. Order a cake and make sure to integrate any theme elements that you include in the decorations. Think about any audio-visual equipment you might want to secure through the venue to display videos or photos during the event. Create a special cocktail to mark the occasion, serve theme drinks or just offer a champagne toast, depending on your budget.
