Event Planning
If you are planning an event or working with
a group organizing a party,

be a guest at your own event, no matter how big or small.

Whether your celebration is for a birthday party - sweet 16 or quincea˝era, ministry, anniversary, graduation or retirement, baby or bridal shower, family or school reunion, or even a formal - wedding & reception, or an awards banquet -- the things you will need to consider are the same.

As you begin any event planning process, three questions will be asked of you early on in the process. The answers to these questions are the foundation to planning a successful event, and many other decisions are impacted by these as you continue in your planning:

When is the event?
The date of the event will need to be established, as this can impact many aspects of your event; vendor reservation, guest availability, venue access, and other services needed for your event.

How many people are coming?
When you know the date the event will happen, determining the number of guests in attendance will be critical in securing vendors, the venue, and determining amount of food needed. On average, between 70-80% of invited guests attend an event.

What will my budget be?
Having a good estimation of what your event budget will be, will help in the decisions being made by the vendors and the event planners. Your biggest expense will be for food and the venue. Other vendor costs, such as DJ or photographers are not dependent on the number of people attending the event. Cherith Hall can help you through this process to make your event special and within your budget.

Number of GuestsDo-It-Yourself Full Service by Cherith Hall
50 - 100 $500 - $1500$900 - $4000
100 - 150 $700 - $2000$4000 - $7000
150 - 200$900 - $2500 $5000 - $10,000

Do-It-Yourself - All aspects of the event are done by the event planner or shared with Cherith Hall.
Full Service - Cherith Hall provides all catering and setup negotiated with event planner.

These numbers are very general as each event is unique to what is planned, and there are many variables to take into account. Should the numbers in the chart above not fit into your budget, don't hesitate to discuss with us your plans and we can help you trim without compromise to your event.

How long does it take to plan an event?
The amount of time needed to plan an event is generally dependent on the number of guests attending, and the scope of the event itself. Other factors may be a hard date that can not be changed. On average the chart below helps in putting an event together at Cherith Hall when a hard date is being asked for:

Number of GuestsTime Needed to Plan
0 - 501 - 2 Months
50 - 100 3 - 4 Months
100 - 2004 - 5 Months
Greater than 2005 - 6 Months

Don't have the time needed for average planning? Don't worry! Events can be planned quicker with professional help from Cherith Hall.

Booking Cherith Hall completely as a full service can take much of the hassle out of the planning process for you, but will cost extra in your budget.

Where will I have the event?
Once you've determined the date, decided the number of people attending, and thought through a preliminary budget for your event, Cherith Hall can help you bring it all together. Five aspects help in the venue selection and Cherith Hall makes it simple for you:
1. Price - "Affordable"; we work within your budget to plan an event that will be memorable
2. Location - "Assessable"; located for easy drive from major towns in Southside Virginia
3. Flexibility - "Accommodating"; we provide options in making your event one-of-a-kind
4. Ambiance - "Country Elegance"; we work with you to express what the event will be
5. Amenities - "On-site"; we offer a vast inventory of event items, both indoor and outdoor

Price generally is the top consideration for most planned events. We work with you to negotiate what we can offer and still stay within your budget to present an event for your guests that will be remembered. If the event is small, some planners opt to having an event at home; this can save you some money, but will in most cases, increase the stress of holding the event.

Location is important for your guests to access easily. Cherith Hall is easily reached by those in South Hill, South Boston, Farmville, Danville and towns in between. Richmonders and those in the Triangle area of North Carolina will find us surprisingly close. Directions are are very easy to follow with few turns off major highways.

Flexibility is our trademark at Cherith Hall. We promise to work with event planners in making your event uniquely yours. Things like handicap accessibility, Do-it-yourself options in bringing your own food, space for dancing, use of our event inventory, off-road parking are some of the items we offer.

Ambiance can be whatever the event planner and Cherith Hall work out for the event; from casual to formal. To at Cherith Hall providing the backdrop to express the event or the planner providing what is needed. We work with the planner to create the "atmosphere" desired for the event.

Amenities are offered as part of the overall package negotiated at Cherith Hall. We offer a varied event inventory which includes outdoor games, petting zoo and pony rides to a large assortment of decorations. Arbors, gazebo, a 1 acre pond, table settings and limited linens can enhance your event and we have access to secure most event items needed.
