How to Choose a Band for Your Party

Wedding Venue NYC

After looking at various party spaces for your next party, you still have to find the right band. Just like the right party space, the right band will be the perfect fit to entertain your guests and make for a great party that everyone will remember.

Determine the type of band you want.
Before you start looking for a band, think about what type of entertainment you want filling your party space. Do you want a band that will provide background noise while your guests mingle; or do you want a performer that will have your guests raving about your party for months afterward? Once you determine the type of band you want, you can start your search.

Consider your audience first.
You want your guests to enjoy your party, so you need to find the band that will cater to the majority of your guests. If they have similar tastes, then you are in luck. However, some parties may contain many different choices in music tastes. Look for the band that will play the music that most of your guests will appreciate. You may not make everybody at the party space rental happy, but it is more considerate to the masses.

See the band perform.
Once you have narrowed down your list of bands, attend some performances before your event. If possible, visit when the band is playing an event similar to yours, so you can have a more accurate judge of the band’s skill. For example, a band may play different music at a wedding venue than they would during your party.

Ask for references.
Always request references that you can call. You can find out how past clients felt about the band’s performance and demeanor. This will be very helpful when you need to narrow down your list to 1 or 2 bands.

Whether you choose a band, DJ, or use your own iPod, The Glasshouses has a first-rate audio system in our party spaces serving NYC. We are available to take your reservation at (646) 402-6557.

Understanding the Job of the Best Man

Wedding Venue NYC

The job of best man is a role steeped in history and tradition as the groom’s right-hand man. Whether he is looking for the bachelor party space or offering moral and emotional support to the groom, the best man has an important job in a wedding.

Help the Groom Prepare
Perhaps the most important part of being the best man is to help the groom prepare in whatever way he needs. This may be helping him to pick tuxedos or simply being open to frank discussions about potential nerves. Whatever the groom needs from you, try to provide it as best you can.

Plan the Bachelor Party
Many men enjoy being the best man because they can plan the bachelor party. Whether you choose a specific party space or plan for a night out in New York City, the bachelor party will be a great night of fun. Consult with the groom first about your plans, just in case he prefers a different party space.

Hold the Groom’s Ring
In addition to supporting the groom in front of the wedding guests, you will be trusted with the groom’s ring for the bride. Some traditions have seen the best man hold both the groom’s and the bride’s ring, but this will be up to the happy couple’s preference. Either way, be sure you have the ring at all times, safe and sound in your suit pocket.

Toast the Happy Couple
Once you reach the wedding reception venue, the toasts will soon begin. Typically, the best man starts the toasting with a short speech about his relationship with the groom and the bride, some funny memories, and well wishes for their happiness.

With The Glasshouses as your party space or wedding reception venue in NYC, you will have the time of your life. We offer a fully-equipped catering kitchen and enough room to seat up to 150 people in our party spaces. Don’t hesitate to call us at (646) 402-6557 for more information.

The Best Lighting for Photos

Event Venue NYC

There are so many tips and tricks to get the best light at a photo shoot location. Many of these tips may depend on the type of photo shoot you are conducting, whether it is for fashion, bridal, animal life, or still life. However, finding the best light for your next photo shoot location can only occur with practice and continually trying to find the best shot.

Many experts agree that the best lighting to achieve a great photo comes from a broad light source. The larger a light source—either from an open window, far away lamp, or a cloud-covered sun—then the softer and more beautiful your subject will appear in photos.
