4 Things to Consider Before Choosing a Marquee Hire Service Provider in London

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.

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.
