There are many reasons to consider hiring a marquee, such as weddings, birthday parties and other events. They’re a popular choice for all sorts of events and parties because they provide some shelter and a little shade. Plus, they look excellent and can be seen from far away, making others excited about the festivities to come. Harts Party Hire offers a variety of marquee options, but it’s important to have a few tips to help make it easier to select one.
Marquees are available in all price points, making them an excellent addition to any event. However, the bigger marquees and those that look unique will cost more money than smaller versions or those that are standard. Therefore, it’s best to have an idea of the budget you have to spend on decorations before considering one.
The next thing to consider is the size of the event and the location where it will be. If you’re inviting 100 guests, you’ll need a larger marquee than if you have 10 to 20 guests. The hire company you choose can help you determine what size is best for your needs.
Likewise, the location also plays a role. If you’re going to have the marquee in the sand or a public place, you’ll need express permission and may not be able to use ground spikes to hold the marquee in place. You may require pop-up or instant marquees or may need to find a different location to put the marquee.
Hire companies offer a variety of add-ons for marquees, such as silk linings in various colours, glass doors, lighting, window walls and more. While these can transform the event and make the space unique, it’s important to understand that they may cost more, which can raise the total price.
