Is there a staff of workers that come with your venue? If not, you're either going to have no one helping, or you're going to end up paying extra for catering staff. Maybe both. Make sure someone is there to help on your wedding day. Don't put your dad and groom in a situation where they are balancing off a ladder hanging decor, or sweeping up spilled beer on the dance floor. Don't pick a place where one lady is the only person you've ever seen working. Who is going to help make it all happen? A venue like Californos has much more to offer in this regard.
Guests will be drinking, we must assume. How will they get home safely?
At Californos - we have two lovely hotels across the street; guests can literally stumble there after your hosted open bar. Don't put guests in a spot where they are stuck without a ride home. Wait - does your venue even serve coffee? That would sure help and it would be nice, but you'd be shocked how many places don't offer any coffee service with the bar package.
How long should your party go? Should you host an after-party?
At Californos you can decide this at the very last second! Lots of options are available to you, since our bar and restaurant is on-site and we're in the heart of an entertainment district! Picking Californos as your venue means that you can walk to other bars for a nightcap, or stay and host more drinks or let guests purchase their own at our beautiful restaurant bar.
What should we do the morning after our wedding?
Go out to brunch of course! Meet up with out-of-town guests for brunch, coffee and mimosas the morning after your wedding! Californos can host you for a formal event or an informal reservation, depending on the size of your group. Why go anywhere else?
