Why You Should Care About “Blank Slate” Venues
Often times when people are looking for venues to hold their event or wedding, they hear the phrase “blank slate” and wonder, “what does that mean?” or “that seems like a lot of extra work!” But “blank slate” simply means you can turn the space into anything you want or need for your event. The possibilities are seemingly endless and there is nothing to hold you back. These venues often have neutral colors on the walls and most likely no carpet, giving you a clean canvas to create your event.
What does this mean?
“Blank slate” venues are a trendy alternative to give yourself creative control of how you want the space to look and feel. Each time there is an event in this type of space, it looks different from one event to the next. This is perfect if you’re looking for a venue that’s refreshing for you and your guests, no matter if they’ve been there once or five times before. Simply toss all the “rules” out the window and make your event your own and unique to you!
Does this seem like a lot of extra work?
Don’t get scared of this “creative control” because that’s what your design team will help you with! Make the space reflect your unique style and taste by working with designers who will guide you along the way to bring your vision to life. Make sure to sit with your team to talk through various ideas and keep your mind open to their suggestions, thoughts and opinions. Take time to look at their previous work and other events that catch your eye and think about what you would change or do differently to reflect your own personality and style.
Keep in mind, with any venue, tables, chairs, linens, décor, centerpieces and floral are all things you need to decide on. From colors to fabric to style and theme, planning your event at a “blank slate” venue is no different than planning your event at other venues. In fact, it could be less work to create your one-of-a-kind vision without the influence of permanent décor or existing color schemes in a room. This gives you the ability to really think outside of the box! So, with a “blank slate” why not go for it?! Take advantage of the opportunity to thoroughly personalize the space just for you.
