To help you plan your wedding, we have prepared a checklist of questions and tips on all things associated with hiring a marquee.
DO YOUR SUPPLIERS NEED POWER?
Caterers • Projector • Toilet Unit • Lighting • Band • Bar
WHAT DO YOUR CATERERS/BAR NEED?
TIP: Your catering options are a big influence on the size of generator you will need, so make sure you ask your caterers what equipment they are using.
High Top Trestles • Power • Electric Points • Lighting • Service Tent • Table Linen
REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR RUBBISH WITH YOU AFTER YOUR EVENT!
TIP: Check your venue contract, you may lose your deposit if you leave your rubbish.
The venue may ask the caterers to take their own rubbish.
DON’T FORGET GENERATORS, TOILET UNITS AND SHOWERS.
TIP: Tents N Events can give you all the contact details for the above. Make sure you ask your suppliers what power supplies they will need, including any spare plugs and extension leads.
TIP: We live in England, so it’s best to plan for the weather as best you can. Rain? Umbrellas. Sunny? Coat rails. Chilly? Blankets.
IS THE ENTRANCE TO YOUR MARQUEE/VENUE OBVIOUS?
TIP: Decorate your entrance so guests know where to walk in. It’s best to encourage guests through an entrance with pathways and decoration, rather than walking in anywhere with tables scattered around, as they might miss the table plan or entrance drinks. We can supply porches and pathways, as well as highlighting the entrance will barrels, crates, lights, signs etc.
