Misconceptions of a marquee

Perhaps the finest in outdoor venues, a marquee is a tent that comes in a variety of sizes and designs, and can suit a number of different occasions. Depending on what the event is, they can be decorated in a specific theme to represent the significance of the party. Birthdays, engagements and even live music performances, whatever you’re planning, always consider hiring marquees.

Family events come in all shapes and sizes, from small intimate gatherings to much larger celebrations, 21st birthdays to retirement celebrations. Often, these functions take place in a traditional venue, be it a bar, the village hall or the local function centre. More commonly however, people opt to go for a marquee in order to have the event at home and truly make it their own. With the added flexibility marquees offer families are able to cater for their visitors and provide a fun and comfortable setting while the festivities are in motion.

One of the most common misconceptions about marquees is that they’re very expensive and that you have to possess a large garden in order to make use of one. This couldn’t be further from the truth in actuality. You can choose from a wide variety of sizes, suitable for both grand occasions and the smaller scale get-togethers. Regardless of your budget or specifications, marquee hire is an appropriate option for your party.

Typically marquees require heating, decorative items and of course, lighting for those parties that continue well into the night. A myriad of party organisers can add their own personal touch to the marquee’s interior decoration, but in truth, you’ll find that many marquee hire companies also specialise in this area and are equally as good because of their detailed knowledge of their products.

One thing to remember with a marquee is you are free to add any number of your own touches to the decorations and layout. They are the most flexible venue you can opt for, providing more opportunities to make the celebration memorable. You can even place them almost anywhere so you have the freedom to choose the location.
