Tent Rentals - Will That Be One or Two?
When you are holding an outdoor event, whether it's a wedding, a retirement party, or a company picnic, you will most likely need to look at tent rentals to protect your guests from the elements, such as the rain, hot sun, or cold temperatures, and enclose the outdoor space. This can be a complicated task if you haven't had to do this before. For example, how do you estimate the number of tents that you will need based on the number of guests that you plan to have? Do you need canopy tents or full room tent (fully enclosed) with mosquito screens or windows? You might have some other questions too, like who will put up and take down the tents and when. Plus, who is liable if there is any damage?
Fortunately most of your questions can be easily answered. Many companies who offer tent rentals are more than willing to help you gauge the number of tents that you will need based on the number of guests at your event. They deal with these things all the time and there are simple mathematical formulas that they can use to help with the correct size tent rental. Many suppliers also have very informative websites where much of this information is also readily available. They usually have a whole slew of outdoor furniture available too, such as tables and chairs, linen, cutlery as well as dance floors and many special packages for events like weddings, birthdays, graduations, or any event type. Lighting equipment as well as tent heaters is usually available if you are holding your event in one of the off seasons or at night.
Another good way to go about things when you are arranging a large event is to use the services of an event planner. They will help you to plan for your event and will even refer you to suppliers for tent rentals whether you are located in Ohio, Texas, Michigan, New York, Maine, or any other state. You will be able to rest assure that the companies that they refer you have already proven themselves by providing tents for other events, something that is hard to verify on your own. Event planners are professionals that help people with large events all the time, and their services are invaluable. If you need to arrange for catering services, you can also do this through an event planner as well as virtually any other kind of service.
When you are looking at different companies for tent rentals, you will find that most of them charge per person. There will also be extra costs for things like a special wedding canopy or French windows as well as, any furniture, catering equipment, etc. Most companies will put up and take down the tents themselves and any liability thus resides with them. It is really nice not to have to worry about all these things when you are putting on a large event, and dealing with suppliers that are dependable and professional.
Planning a big event can be very exciting. It is also great when you know you've got good suppliers, especially for tent rentals. By working with an event planner, maybe you will even find a tent supplier with creative juice, who will not only deliver on the product, but also find a way to make your event as memorable and unique as you are.
