Marquee or Hotel: Which is the Better Option?

Getting Married

So you popped the question, went down on your knees and asked the woman of your dreams to be your lifetime partner.  She says “yes”, you give her the ring, you hug each other as she cries a bucket of tears in pure joy.

Just like that, you’re now engaged!

And so begins the next chapter of your lives, a rather tedious one because you’re about to start planning for the wedding.  With everything that needs to be taken care of especially if it’s a big wedding, one of the first questions would have to be something about the venue.


The Venue: Marquee or Hotel?

The top two choices would either be in a hotel or, perhaps the better choice, a marquee and I’m not saying this because I’m in the marquee hire business (the best one in London) but really out of practicality.

Holding the event in a hotel or resort is not a bad choice with everything all setup, you can just sit back and relax and let the hotel staff take care of the minor details (at least venue-wise) but the difference really has a lot to do with personalization.

By hiring a marquee, you are more in control of a number of things and we’ve listed them down below:

  1. Number of Guests– hotels have limited seats so if you have additional friends and relatives you would like to invite, they have to be a top priority.  Otherwise, you my just need to pretend you forgot to invite them or just say nothing to get rid of embarrassment.

This will not be a problem for marquee hire service providers because we adjust to the size of your guest list.  You can invite as many people as you like without the restrictions.

  1. Design– though hotels have their own themes you can choose from, it still pales in comparison to the level of personalization you can achieve with a wedding marquee hire.

From the marquee type, drapes, furniture, down to the floor type and lighting, everything’s customizable according to your taste.

Getting married is a momentous event which is why it should be nothing but a lasting and memorable experience not only for both bride and groom but for their guests as well.

By hiring a wedding marquee service provider in London, you are given the autonomy and control not only of the food and accommodation but more importantly, of the venue and how it looks.


Marquee Hire Provider Stories: Weddings

My Favorite Event

So I met this old friend this past weekend for a potential client.  It’s been a while since we last saw each other so we had the chance to catch up with a few bottles of beer to boot.

As we were getting down to business, he asked me a question that I’ve never been asked before and somehow caught me off guard.

“Being a marquee hire service provider in London, what’s your favorite event?”

As marquee hire service providers, we get to host different kinds of events like corporate launches, birthdays, weddings or even yard sales for that matter so I got the chance to think for a few seconds and the only thing that came to mind is the beauty and drama that unfolds in a wedding ceremony.


The Magic of Weddings

It’s an inexplicable feeling to see the magic that happens during holy matrimony.  The vows exchanged, the groom’s astonished look as the bride comes in, and people’s reaction when both bride and groom cry due to so much joy.  Oh man, it does go beyond the wedding tent!

Other events like corporate launches and sales are a bit too formal for me and at some point, bores me to death.  It’s like just hanging in there until the program ends or after the designated speaker ends his speech to introduce the next five.  It’s redundant and lacks the drama I’m looking for.

Birthdays probably come in second on my list whether it’s children’s parties or debuts.  The mood is different.  It’s fun and people are just happy.  So many Kodak moments to capture so to speak.


Efficiency in Every Event

Regardless of the type of event we hold, one thing is for sure, and I told my friend this.  That every job we take, every client we work with, always come out more than satisfied and happy with our services which goes beyond the equipment we provide.
