We all dream of a fancy wedding or hosting an event worth remembering. Be it an end of year party, a family gathering or an anniversary. We all have the same desire to make it the best it can be.
Well, it has never been easier. You can hire marquees (a large tent for social and formal gatherings) and wine barrel furniture for your event, and it will be an event not to forget.
Marquees have a number of advantages, and hiring saves you the money to purchase one. It also saves you the cost of hiring an expensive hall to host and adds a touch of elegance to your anniversary. Actually, you can host it in your own backyard. I used a one for my anniversary, and it was an experience like no other. Here is why I would use it again.
Having hosted the event in my own backyard, it spoilt me for the choice for which marquee to choose and where to locate it.
With marquees, you can meet all of your needs, and you do not have to worry about Mother Nature.
You can choose from various types of marquees. If you want maximum natural lighting, you can go for one with a clear roof but if not, you can always have personalised lighting that suits your event. If you want it disco themed or LED lights on a black drape to create a sky like effect, marquees are the thing for you. As an added advantage, marquees don’t suffer power outages because they depend on generators for power. It saves you the embarrassment from power outages.
Marquees also give you total control over the look of your event. You can choose the size that fits your quests, location, flooring and also if the marquee should have windows or not. With the customisation option, you will pay less to have the look changed unlike in hired halls.
Take advantage of the view
With marquees, you can bring the outside in, especially if your backyard has a beautiful scenery. To take advantage of this, you can choose clear walled marquees.
With marquees, you can choose to locate your event anywhere and away from interruptions. Making it ideal and you can even play music without having to deal with noise complaints.
No, or very few restrictions
Nobody wants the party ending too early. And this is within reason. This might be the only time you get to have this much fun and just let go. Furthermore, it is your anniversary, where having as much fun as is allowed.
With most hired venues, almost all the time, you have to book them in advance and you cannot extend the time limits. There are also noise limiters. But with marquees strategically located, the party can go on an entire night, giving you a night to remember. I know I did.
When you hire a marquee, you do not have to be restricted to the caterers that come with the venue. You can hire a caterer who can arouse your taste buds and fits into your budget.
You don’t have to worry about chairs and tables
If you do not have enough seats and tables to fit your quests, worry not. A good marquee company will always provide these alongside the tableware such as wine barrel furniture. For what use will be a marquee, if they can’t provide the essentials. If you have a large multitude, you can always hire some extra seats.
With marquees, you can have different seating arrangements. You can have sofas for the bar. You can also avail your options with the indoor and outdoor option, especially if the weather allows it.
Most event venues are quite expensive to hire and come with compromises such as space and noise limiters. Couple this with the transportation costs you have to incur and the expensive drinks provided at the venue, the price skyrockets. On the other hand, marquees are cost effective. By hosting the anniversary in your backyard, you save some money, as you don’t have to hire a ground.
With a marquee, you can work around your budget and ensure that it meets all the necessary requirements. Unless you want every mod con included, a marquee event should be a very cost effective event.
So, for my next anniversary; a marquee or hire a venue? It has to be a marquee anytime. I did not feel the pinch pocket wise, and I had a blast for an event. My quests are now seeking advice on how to do it themselves. So, if you want an anniversary to remember, hire a marquee.
