Hiring Our a Marquee for a Wedding and your Catering Requirements

A marquee makes a great venue for a wedding. It’s a good way to be able to seat all of your guests in one place, and have plenty of room to adjust the layout as you wish. It is also likely to be cheaper than hiring our a building.

One of the main things you will need to think about is the catering for your wedding. If you hire our a building, often there will be a kitchen and you will be able to book wedding breakfast and buffet packages along with the hire. This may not be the case with a marquee wedding.

If you have a marquee that is in the grounds of a house or hall, ask about whether you will also have access to the catering facilities. Equally, if you hire an external caterer, find out whether they will have space to cook and prepare food.

Hiring Equipment for your Event or Special Day

Sometimes, it just isn’t practical to buy everything you need for an event. Whether you are a caterer, an event planner or the person holding the event, you will be in the same position – in need of equipment to make sure your event runs smoothly. Looking for event equipment hire could be a viable option for you, as it will give you the opportunity to get hold of everything you need for a fraction of the price of buying it.

Where will you be able to get the events equipment you need? There are many companies that offer equipment hire, and lots of them are highly capable companies. They have high quality equipment that you can hire out for various periods of time, offering you a very flexible service. The equipment you can hire will totally depend on the company you select – the offering is different from events company to events company.

Why should you consider events equipment hire? 

There are many benefits to hiring equipment instead of buying it. Here are some things you should carefully consider:

  • Cost. You can save yourself a lot of money by hiring. Some companies will hire out items like crockery, glassware and table cloths for incredibly low prices. They will often come as part of a package as well if you hire higher cost items like marquees.
  • Convenience. Many events equipment companies will be able to deliver your items to you. If you hire out a marquee or a bar, they will be able to come and set it up at a time that works for you. This saves you the hassle of having to do it yourself.
  • Quality. If you hire from a company that specialises in events, chance are they will have items that are better quality. They need their customers to be happy with the standard of equipment they provide, so it is in their best interests to make sure it is all high quality.
  • Ongoing relationships. If you run events, it will pay off to use the same company on an ongoing basis. They will be able to give you better prices (especially if you hire in bulk), and you get a better service when you work with a company regularly.

Who might use an events hire company? 

  • Events planners and managers, wedding planners.
  • People planning a wedding.
  • Commercial and corporate businesses who run conferences and events
  • Anyone planning any kind of party of event

How to find the equipment you need 

It’s important you find the right kind of events hire company to make sure you can get the equipment you need. Some will deal with smaller items, like crockery and tableware. Others will be able to hire out everything you need, including marquees, fridges, bars, kegs, electrical equipment, lighting, dance floors and speakers. Find someone local to you who has a strong reputation for what you do. This makes it more likely that you will be able to get the equipment you need, at the time you need it.
