Finding the right sized venue for your event can be a difficult feat, but with the right guidance you can determine the perfect size and atmosphere for your attendees.When serving food, 6-10 square feet of floor space should be given per guest:

6 square feet per guest
* Guests feel close and will have less ease of accessing food and drinks

7 ½ square feet per guest
* This is considered “comfortably crowded”
* Ideal for receptions and other similar functions

10 square feet per guest
* More than ample space for guests to mingle and easily visit food & drink stations
* Perfect for any luxury reception
