A Few Things to Consider…
Each venue is different. Some may give you carte blanche while others could have strict guidelines regarding food, décor and other details. Before choosing a bridal shower venue, there are a few questions you should keep in mind:
- How many guests are you planning on inviting?
- What type of atmosphere would you like the shower to have? Formal or casual?
- Will the venue allow you to decorate or will they take care of it?
- What type of, and how much, food will be served?
- Can you customize the menu? And do they accommodate special diets?
- Do you want alcohol served at the shower?
- Will the venue allow shower games and party favors?
- Is there space for a large number of gifts? And a place where they can be opened?
Andiamo is a restaurant and banquet space with lots of options. Whether big or small, they have rooms that fit the size and tone of your party. Their large banquet center allows for a more formal affair. Or choose one of their smaller spaces for intimate gatherings. Plan a vibrant party on the patio or a warm meet-and-greet in their wood-adorned Loggia.
Whichever space you choose, most have beautiful views of Dearborn’s natural surroundings. Andiamo can also help you plan a delicious Italian-inspired menu.
