So helpful tips, information and advice on wedding marquee hire
There are many advantages of wedding marquee hire for outdoor occasions and reception parties. These awnings act as stylish shelters from unpredictable weather conditions such as rainfall and strong winds. Hiring such a temporary structure also enables one to choose what they prefer on the occasion. If the weather allows, you can move the ceremony outside or hold the photography session inside if it rains.
Some prefer to erect the marquee in the grounds of a hotel because they can delegate the catering duties as well as floral arrangements and decor to the staff. This is an ideal option if the occasion is to hold hundreds of guests. It gives one more time to relax and enjoy the special day. If a wedding is held at a hotel guests can utilise facilities for accommodation and parking of cars.
If one has access to a large garden, they can choose to organise every detail on their own as opposed to delegation. Though this is can often be a stressful and time consuming option, it accords one the freedom to tailor the occasion to their personal preferences. Erecting the wedding marquee within a garden also provides room for modifications to the program where there is need. For instance, you can organise additional dishes if the caterers fail to turn up.
There are two main types of wedding marquees for hire. The most common type is known as the clear span which is basically a large tent that does not need metal support struts or guy ropes. This leaves the interior clear because no frame work or internal poles are present. One can hence organise the space without being restricted about what should go where. Unlike a function room, such a wedding marquee does not come with venue restrictions.
The second type is known as the shaped marquee and can either be hexagonal or octagonal in shape. It is usually used as a secondary shelter for catering purposes, as a cloakroom or a storage area for the band. It can also be used in place of its conventional counterpart when a different shaped awning is needed to fit in the available space.
If you want to hire a canopy for your occasion, you must first determine the number of guests to be accommodated. The type of furniture, staging and decor to be used must also be taken in consideration. Other important factors include the location of the event, the time of year and whether one requires accommodating audio/visual equipment for a mobile disco. All these considerations are important as they have an impact on the hiring process.
If the occasion is to be held in mid-summer, we recommend that you contact us regarding reservations as early as possible. This is because many weddings, especially in Auckland, are held at this time of the year. The tents are usually erected a few days before the occasion and packed away later on - if you would like more information on how tihs works please phone us on Auckland 09 624 2010. You should ensure that you allow time for this when making a reservation.
