In this feature, we look at the top four reasons why a marquee may just be your ideal venue, and naturally, some ideas for marquee furniture hire for your events!
So…imagine the scenario: you’re hosting a party or event, but you haven’t quite found the perfect venue.  You might have visited a few different places, but there’s something lacking.  Some may not have quite the right ambience, or decor.  Meanwhile, other venues may require you to use their own caterers, when you may have had something different in mind! As specialists in sofa hire for events, we have worked with many marquee companies over the years. Choosing a marquee, rather than a ‘bricks and mortar’ venue for your event can be advantageous in a number of ways; read on to discover more…..

1. Ideal for events at any time of year

sofa hire for eventsHiring a marquee is not just for summer events; they can be fabulous at any time of year.  Most marquee companies will be able to arrange solutions for heating, toilet facilities, and electricity generators. So even if it’s midwinter, you needn’t worry about your guests getting chilly or needing to venture out in the elements in search of a loo! The marquee in the pictures featured here was supplied by Chelmer Marquees, in Essex, for an event earlier this month.

2. Gives you a greater choice of location

Hiring a marquee will give you far more flexibility in terms of location; set it up in your own back garden, a field, or even a beach (with the right permission of course!) This month, we even delivered hire furniture to a marquee inside a London TV studio, for the Celebrity X Factor!

The most popular marquee styles are traditional pole marquees and clearspan marquees (without poles). Some companies also offer tipi and yurt style tents for a different look. Most styles will be available in a wide range of sizes  so you’ll always have the perfect venue, regardless of the scale of your event. 

3. Makes it easier to budget for catering, decor and extras

Also, having the freedom to choose your own caterers and party decor suppliers will enable you to keep to your own budget far more easily.  You won’t be tied into hotel catering, corkage charges, or drinks packages and will be able to tailor absolutely everything to your exact requirements. 

4. You can get creative with your decor  – and marquee furniture hire

marquee furniture hire: poseur tables and faux leather sofasHiring a traditional indoor venue means you’re usually stuck with whatever decor is already there.  But a marquee is a wonderful blank canvas so you can really get creative!  Style it up or dress it down – your choice. Whether you’re after a chilled Ibiza club vibe or a boho hippie-chic look, it can be achieved!
Whilst we are best known for our outdoor rattan furniture, we also have a range of white faux leather sofa hire for events, which can look particularly effective in a marquee for winter parties. Made exclusively for us for by the same UK supplier, all our white faux leather products feature a similar look and stitch, so they complement each other. 
Additionally, groups of Hi-Ball poseur tables were placed in a perfect position for guests to rest their drink while throwing some shapes on the dancefloor!
The starlit ceiling drape, arranged by the marquee company, reflected beautifully on the shiny dancefloor, adding a sparkling finishing touch.
