Having a great 50th birthday

I'm so excited about my 50th birthday. This is the first party I've had in nearly 20 years where I don't have to organise babysitters! I finally have money to have a really huge party, so we are going all out. I've got a great events organiser coming who has got a cool DJ and a great caterer coming. It's a lot of work organising all of my friends and family, but it's going to be worth it to have all the people I love together for one night of fun. If you are also organising a great 50th birthday party, then keep reading.

3 Reasons to Hire a Marquee for Your Wedding

A lot is involved in planning for weddings. Among the most challenging decisions you will have to make is choosing the venue for your wedding. The venue you choose for your wedding will not only affect the amount you spend but also the number of guests you may invite. Unlike the traditional fixed venues, marquees are a new and popular trend you should consider. Marquees are simply tents that are set up at your wedding function for the attendees. Here are some of the benefits that come with hiring a marquee.

More Location Options

A marquee gives you flexibility in the location of your event. This is essential when considering things such as traffic and other transport concerns. Choosing your own location also means that you are not limited to the number of guests attending your wedding. In the conventional venues, this would definitely be an issue. You can simply choose a field marquee if you are expecting a considerable high number of guests.


With a marquee, you are not tied to the access requirements and venue regulations, especially for venues such as hotels. This means you have the liberty to choose your own caterers for instance. For a conventional venue such as a hotel, the regulations in place may define the period within which you can have your event. With a marquee, you are free to choose your finish time, which is something you want for your big day with all your friends and family together. If you are having the marquee on your private property, it would even be an added advantage.

Unlimited Design Options

One major drawback of hiring a fixed venue is that you can be constrained by the décor of such venues. With a marquee, you can achieve certain themes and decorations that would otherwise be challenging at a fixed venue. In addition, there is a myriad of marquees types. You can decide to choose clear span or frame marquees to complement your wedding theme or style whether it's contemporary or traditional.

When choosing a marquee, don't forget about the accessories. Since most of the marquee events are held outdoors, it is essential to consider your climatic conditions when hiring. While marquees are often designed to shield against the elements, you can have your supplier add some modifications to ensure it will offer your guests more comfort. For instance, fans may be added when it's too hot and heating systems when it's too cold.
