Trusted marquee hire Sydney companies like Absolute Party Hire, can transform simple gardens and lawns to wonderful reception.

But like in any aspect of wedding planning, there are questions you need to ask to marquee companies to ensure flawless and hassle-free flow for your special day. Thus, we thought of answering some of these questions to give you a good idea of what to expect when you get a marquee hire Sydney for your wedding.

Do I need to Get a License When I Hire a Marquee?

Generally no, you don’t have to get a license when you hire a marquee for a wedding. Special events like weddings require sound system for the live band, wedding singer, DJ, etc. Of course, you are not looking to profit (sell tickets) from the music and entertainment you offer. An event that sells tickets will require permit and license from the local government.

The same goes when you sell alcohol from the marquee, which some weddings do. If you offer a free bar for your guests, then you don’t have to get a license. Just make sure the bar you hire is licensed and permitted to conduct such business.

Will the Marquee Hire Company Provide Tables and Chairs for My Guests?

Yes, marquee companies usually come with wide range of furniture hire options for you to choose from and suit your event. Furniture choices range from tables and trestles, chairs and bar stools. This means you have greater flexibility for your reception, as you can even mix and match to suit the furniture to your desired layout. Many companies even offer table-setting, cutlery and crockery equipment, catering equipment, lighting, heater, linen, dance floors and flooring and various accessories to suit to the theme of your wedding, the weather of your special date, and make all your guests comfortable inside the marquee.

How Can I Get Power for the Marquee?

When it comes to getting power for the marquee, you have two basic options. For small events that won’t require a long list of electrical equipment and appliances, running an extension from the house will be enough. For big events such as backyard wedding on the other hand, your best solution is to get the services of a generator hire. Obviously, you have to choose a generator enough capacity to power the lighting, air-conditioners or heaters, sound system equipment, etc. inside the marquee. This is a more reliable and safer option.

Parting Tips

Marquee hire Sydney is a great alternative for special events like weddings; it provides flexibility and is more practical than paying for a venue. You don’t have to limit your guest list to a certain number that venues usually indicate, noise limiters, etc. Plus, you can place the marquee in any spot you want.

Of course, you have to consider the weather on your wedding day. Ask the marquee company how they’re going to address, summer heat, snow, rain and wind. Most companies however, are well-equipped to adjust in these weather factors.
