Marquee Hire: What Furniture Do I Need?

When you hire a marquee, you have the freedom to decorate it to your exact specifications, this is just one of the many reasons marquee hire is so popular with various kinds of events.

With this freedom comes the responsibility to populate your marquee with the furniture you will need to ensure your guests are comfortable and your marquee showcases the perfect style to fit your event.

Tables and Chairs

The most basic items to populate a marquee with are appropriate tables and chairs. The designs you select will come down to a wide variety of things, such as the size of the marquee, how many people are attending the event and the type of event being held. Weddings often make use of multiple round tables with one rectangular head table. However, if you would like more of your guests to be seated next to each other, you could invest in a few rectangular tables that will accommodate more people to one table.

Less formal events can make use of sporadic tables and chairs and may even want to look at bar stools and poseur tables which guests can stand or be seated at.

Tables and chairs can come in many designs and you may wish to make use of a large comfortable sofa for your marquee or even light up furniture that can add to the ambience of the room.

Arranging your Furniture

Depending on where you source your furniture from, you may have the added benefit of the furniture hire company laying the furniture for you, or you may have to do it yourself.

Before your furniture arrives, be sure to measure the space and come up with a loose plan of where the pieces will go. You will need to keep in mind any other accessories that will populate the space and the walking room that will need to be between each item and piece of furniture.
