Hire a Marquee

Hire a Marquee – If you have a special event coming up and you are thinking about holding it in an outside environment, you will probably be looking to hire a marquee, to make sure your guests don’t get wet if it rains. While sometimes holding a marquee event can cost more money than a traditional hotel venue, it does have quite a few advantages, in that you can tailor it exactly to your event and to your visitor numbers. The marquee itself may not be all that expensive, but the added extras are what ramps up the cost, so be very careful that you know exactly what you will be paying for at the end.  Marquee hire companies are renowned for their “added extras”, so do your research and check out online reviews so that you can get a good feel for the company you are planning to work with. If anything seems amiss or unclear, find yourself a different marquee hire company that is more open with their costs and services. There is plenty of choice when it comes to hiring marquees and there are not only lots of different sizes, but also lots of different styles of marquee, gazebo and tent. Picking a suitable size and design for your event is important so talk it through thoroughly with the hire company before booking anything or paying a deposit. Also check if you need a licence or not, because if alcohol is being sold you will almost certainly need a licence from your local council.

Hire Professional Caterers – If you have a big event planned and need somebody to do the catering services you would probably be best advised to contact some professional caterers to take care of this for you. Its okay doing the catering yourself when it is just a small affair, but for a grand event, hiring proper caterers is the best plan. Have a discussion with some potential caterers to see what they have to offer and make sure you give them all the information that they need in order to give you an accurate estimate of the costs and to be able to properly plan the event. Which caterers you decide to hire might depend on the type of event as particular caterers specialise in particular areas, for instance some may specialise in wedding catering while others specialise in hog roasts and barbeques. Your choice may also be influenced by the type of food you would like served at the event and specific caterers may specialise in asian food, french food, British food or gourmet cuisine. Have a good search around and try to find the most appropriate caterers for your needs, you could try asking family and friends to see if they have used caterers in the past and if they had a successful event, in which case you might approach the same caterers yourself.

Get a DJ for Your Event – Next time you are planning a party or special celebration you should consider hiring the services of a professional DJ to do the music for you and organise all the entertainment. A professional DJ will bring all his own equipment and gear with him (so you don’t have to use your own) and provide everything you need to make your occasion go with a swing. Apart from supplying the musical entertainment your local DJ will provide a top quality microphone for all those important announcements, first rate lighting system so everything looks and feels great, and may even sing or provide some other live entertainment. Once you have a DJ booked you can relax and leave him to deal with all the minor details, while you get on with organising the rest of the party. Make sure you discuss with your DJ the exact types of music you want, tell him the age group of the guests and he will be able to help you with this, also make certain you tell him the type of event and he will fashion his presentation to suit the occasion ie: wedding, birthday party or corporate event. So go out and get your DJ booked and lets PARTY…
