By Posted in - Events on February 19th, 2015

Organising an event – whether it be a birthday, a wedding, a corporate function or a simple get together with friends – can be quite stressful.

Even if it’s a casual event, there are certain things that you need to think of: venue, guests, food and drink, just to name a few. However, if the event is pulled off successfully, it can be an incredibly rewarding experience. To help you get your next event well on its way, we’ve put together 4 underrated reasons why you should host your next event in a marquee.

1. Choose your space…

All you need for a marquee is a bit of space! This could be at home, whether that is your house or a friend’s. However, if there isn’t a home you can host your event in, there is a plethora of other options.

Growing in popularity over recent years, many party planners have been hosting their events in fields and parks. Usually, these spaces have something spectacular to offer, such as coastal or country views. Why not pick a place that holds some fond memories for you, such as where you holidayed as a child or where you went on your first date? The options are endless. As well as this, there are also lots of established venues which use marquees to host events and receptions.

2. Take advantage of nature…

Marquees enable you to be within touching distance of your beautiful, natural surroundings. So if you have a lovely view, don’t miss out! Make sure you can see the beauty of nature throughout the day. Framed marquees are a great choice in this regard, as they can be supplied with clear window walls and clear roofs, which means that you still see that fabulous view when you are inside the marquee.

3. Create your own theme…

With a marquee, you don’t have to work with existing decors. That means that you are able to pick and choose your own themes, colours and decorations. Pick something that reflects you, and why you’re hosting the event. Some popular ideas are modern, classic, country, vintage and beach themes. The list is truly endless! What are you waiting for? Get creative!

4. Work within your budget…

Whether you have a generous budget or not, a marquee event gives you greater flexibility to work within your price range. You get to choose your venue, marquee and decorations, caterers, menu and bar. Moreover, there are a great range of suppliers for all budgets. Of course, if you want to do some of the catering, table decorations and drinks yourself, then you can. With a marquee, there are no restrictions!

Hosting an event in a marquee gives you a freedom like no other. It means you can choose your space, choose you vendors, incorporate the beautiful outdoors and work within your budget.
