Whether it is a wedding, a graduation ball, or some other special occasion, trends around venues often change from one year to the next. The upmarket hotel in town may well be the best place to go one year, with the haunted castle or golf club on the outskirts of town the best choice the next.
In recent years, countryside locations have seen a boom in popularity for parties of all types. These venues range from converted barns and farmhouses, to countryside venues and houses, or even simply hiring a field and organising a marquee and other features.
What are the main reasons these venues have enjoyed such a surge in popularity?
As people forever seek to be unique and find different ways of doing things, the locations they choose as party venues become more and more unusual. Of course, things only remain unusual for a short while before they become hugely popular, which is why country estates, country clubs, and farm buildings have enjoyed such a boom in popularity recently.
You get a different experience getting married or holding the office party somewhere unusual rather than going for the tried and tested places. People look forward to attending such destinations more, and it adds a sense of liberation to the party itself.
There are numerous possibilities that can be explored when hosting a party in a rural venue, owing to the vast swathes of open space that you have to work with. These can vary from something simple, such as holding a fireworks party on the estate, to ideas such as the previously mentioned marquee in the grounds.
One unique idea that is starting to grow in popularity is to spend the night outdoors, whether in a marquee or in a “bubble tent.” This can create a unique romance and ambience that is totally different from a hotel or another venue.
Low Demand (For Now!)
The great thing about such venues is that demand is still low, so by holding your party here you are not following what everyone else has done or likely to be copying your best friend. Low demand generally means a low price, too – paying a premium for a hotel that everyone wants is standard today, unfortunately.
Perhaps best of all, you will get to say you are the first! So whether it is a haunted castle, a country estate, or some farming land with a marquee in the centre of it, seek out a rural venue for your party and give yourself and your guests a unique experience!
