Welcome to adulting! Are you ready to celebrate your coming-of-age, miss debutante? Having a debut is one of the most memorable events in a woman’s life. It is a very heartwarming day to spend with your loved ones, with fun dances and good food. So, before everything else, you should choose a venue! This will determine all your plans, designs, and decisions in your debut. Today we listed the important things to consider when choosing a debut venue. Are you excited?



Before you choose a venue, consider a location that will be convenient for everyone. Why? Because this will determine the number of guests that will attend your debut. You don’t want to choose a location that is too far. Consider the travel time that the guests will have to go through to reach your venue. This will ensure that everyone will be on time for the event and are also able to easily drive home after a long day.

Luckily, Juan Carlo Event Center and Old Grove Farmstead are only located a few hours from Manila. The first one is a newly renovated venue perfect for formal events while the latter is a venue that is near nature.

When choosing a venue, keep in mind the available parking space for your guests and event suppliers. If your venue doesn’t have parking space, look for a nearby pay parking for the convenience of everyone. At Old Grove Farmstead, parking space is included for your needs.



How many guests do you have in mind? Some venues have limited capacity, so make sure to have a survey of the people you want to invite. Imagine booking a room for 50 pax but having around 100 on the day of the event. Sounds a bit chaotic, right? Knowing the seating capacity and the number of potential guests in advance can also help you budget your expenses.


Internet Connection

In this day and age, Wi-Fi is a must-have for everyone. Not all venues have Wi-Fi, so inquire about internet connection before booking a venue. Some venues, like Old Grove Farmstead, have available Internet access so your guests can instantly upload photos of your beautiful event.


Lights and Sound System

Aside from decorations and food, light and sounds can make or break a debutante party. Lights that are too dim or too bright can affect the mood of the guests. You probably want to take photos and videos for memories right? Good lighting is key if you want that instagrammable photo that you can look back on. The acoustics of an event place is also important. Check with your chosen venue if they already have a lighting and sound system. Because renting an additional one can add more stress to your planning.

Fortunately, our package for Juan Carlo Events Place and Old Grove Farmstead include both lights and sound. You don’t have to worry about lights being too dim or too bright, or sounds that are too weak or too loud. In both venues, we assure you of a perfect balance. You can see this in our long experience in event planning.


Air-conditioning or Cool Climate

A debut is not exactly a short event. There will be a program to follow, and every activity follows the schedule. Having a good temperature in your venue can make or break your event. If your venue doesn’t include an air conditioner, inquire about having portable ones. This will ensure that everyone, including the debutante, will enjoy the night.

In Juan Carlo Events Place, our package already includes air-conditioned rooms. While cool climate can be experienced in Old Grove Farmstead. It is located at the 3rd highest point in the Philippines! Both of these can ensure you and your guests will experience a very comfortable event.


Make-up Room

The debutante will probably arrive at the venue ahead of everyone else. Some like to rent a hotel room for make-up and preparations. But here in Juan Carlo events place, we have a make-up room that you can use for preparations and touch-ups. After all, you want to look the best on such a memorable day.


Catering and Other Logistics

Some packages don’t include the catering, styling, decoration of the venue, or chair and table setup. Here at Juan Carlo, you do not have to worry about all of that. We can also provide the styling and decoration of your backdrop, a princess chair for the debutante, cushioned chairs for the guests, and many others. Our package with both venues also include catering services so you do not have to worry about the food, you just have to come to our food tasting!


Key Takeaway

Planning a debut will not be easy at first. But if you have an idea about the things to consider when choosing a debut venue, then other decisions will easily follow. When choosing a venue, keep in mind the value for money that you will receive. Because not all venues offer packages that include the things that you really need for a successful event. Here at Juan Carlo, we have a wide variety of venues you can choose from!

If you have any questions about our packages, do not hesitate to send us a message. We hope to see you soon at your debut!
