Prom is most likely the last night that you would see all your high school friends gathered in a place. It marks the end of the high school journey and creates memories that will stick with you for the rest of the night. At the center of exciting issues like picking a date and an outfit is where the prom itself would hold.
There is a shift from using the school hall or gymnasium for prom. This has opened up exciting possibilities for the choice of venue. However, things can really turn sour with a venue that is not suited to your prom needs. For a successful prom, break down your task and get a professional service with a wide range of venues to put you through. Let us take a look at some interesting venue ideas and things to consider before settling on a venue.
You should select a venue that can expand to meet the demands of the high school class. In New Jersey this can easily add up to at least a few hundred guests or even more. Restaurants cannot really be considered an option because while they do have the capacity to feed hundreds of students and their dates, chances are they do not have the room for all the guests. Nor would they have the room for dancing.
Well known prom venues in NJ like ours at Richfield Regency have the room for all the guests and chaperones to sit comfortably as they eat. We also have a fine dance floor where they can let loose and have fun.
Things to consider
|Prom Venue in NJ|
Your theme and attendees
Proms generally come with a theme. You need a venue that allows you to express your theme effectively. The number of attendees will also be a big question to be answered before you make the decision.
We highly recommend and encourage you to take a tour of our venue and let your imagination and ideas about the theme translate into a reality. We want to you to know that with us you can decorate and be as creative as you wish!
Amenities and safety
Look out for basic facilities while touring venues. Your ideal venue should essentially have a good sound system, lights and clean bathrooms. A venue that comes with chairs, tables, linens and has affiliated service providers can help you to save money.

At the heart of every event is the quality and presentation of food. No matter how appealing the décor is or the sheer ambience of the venue, guests would not forgive a bad meal. The importance of food at events has made it an issue to be settled at the early stage of planning. Different choices are available to the planning but it most times boils down to a choice between on premise catering and off premise catering.
On premise catering involves the food being prepared at the event venue. This means that there would be a kitchen at the event venue where everything concerning food will be handled.
Off premise catering on the other hand involves food being prepared at a location outside the event venue. Typically, the cooking is completed and the food is transported plated and ready to be served. In some cases, some aspects of the cooking are finished up at the venue particularly when the menu choices are exotic and delicate.
At Richfield Regency we allow for either on or off premise catering for your prom. We have several menus to choose from and can adhere to your dietary needs. Whatever you choose, we’ll be happy to help you make it happen.
Things to look out for in choosing an off premise catering company
Go a step beyond websites and get people to share their experience from using a particular company. When considering a company, focus on the quality of their food as well as the range of options they offer.
Facilities and equipment.
The job of a good off premise catering service is to get the food delivered safely to the venue. The food must also be delivered while it is hot and fresh. To achieve this, they need top of the range equipment and tools. Inspect their facilities and ask questions when you need clarification.
It is not enough that the catering service has years of experience between their staff. You should also check for experience relating to your kind of event.
This is particularly important in off premise catering where a premium is placed on the presentation as well as the quality of the food.
