Before You Hire a Marquee Service Provider
Hiring a marquee service provider in London for an event isn’t as easy as calling one up and telling them that you have this big event you want them to help you with. You know for sure that organizing an event takes so much preparation (hence the root word “organize”) and planning and it will make life a lot easier for you if you’ve got a couple of things all figured out before you start calling.
1. Know How Many Guests are Coming
This is perhaps the most important detail you cannot take for granted because the success of your event depends highly upon it. Overestimate and you will have a marquee too big, it looks almost empty. Underestimate, and you’ll have people bumping shoulders because the marquee is too small.
Figure out as early as possible how many people you’ll be hosting or suffer the consequences in the end.
2. What Do You Need?
Marquee hires usually offer packages that include furniture, heaters, chairs, and dance floors. Be crystal clear on what extras you’ll be needing. Make a list so you don’t have to make wild guesses when you go face-to-face with your marquee hire service provider London.
Are you hosting a wedding consist of 500 guests? You’ll definitely need a dance floor if that’s the case. What type of floor materials do you prefer? Does the color have to match the motif? The more specific you can get, the better.
3. What’s Your Budget?
We can’t stress enough how important it is to know your budget before going out to “the battlefield”. After all, you should only aim for what you can afford and it will be embarrassing to start talking to marquee hires that falls out of your price range.
Know your budget ahead of time so you won’t waste your time and other people’s time as well.
4. Book Early
“The early bird catches the worm” and this is something you need to remember when it comes to hiring marquee service providers.
Summer is the busiest season for marquee service providers so plan ahead and book in advance because these service providers will be holding events left and right and booking at the last minute will deprive you of the opportunity to hire the best marquee service provider that fits your budget.

My cousin is getting married soon and we were thinking of getting a marquee for her reception. I think that is a great idea to figure out how many people are coming, so we can get the right size of marquee. We would want to get the right size for everyone to be comfortable. Thank you for the tips!
