Throwing a party shouldn’t be stressful. After all, you’re getting together friends and co-workers and family members to have a good time. Why add an unnecessary amount of worry and fuss when you can go a much smarter route? Party tent rentals and general equipment are the resources you should tap into so your party, baby shower or birthday bash can go off without a hitch. They’re affordable, flexible and free up your time so you can spend more of your effort designing, scheduling and getting to all the fun aspects of bringing people together.
The top five tips below will help you whether you’re throwing a farewell party for a co-worker, a bridal shower for a friend or a fundraiser for your business.
Know Your Wedding…And Your Wedding Trends
How familiar are you with the ins and outs of weddings? According to the Knot’s recent Real Weddings Study, the most popular month to get married by far is June. This same study also saw the average number of wedding guests at 136 or so people. This means you’ll need to brush up on your party tent rentals, chairs and tables. The last thing you want are people standing when they should be relaxing or sitting.
Buy The Right Tent For The Right Occasion
What makes party tent rentals so great? They keep your party from turning into a sudden disaster. Whether or not you should buy or rent a tent depends on a few things. If you’re going to be using the tent three to four times per year, it’s highly recommended you rent. If you use it more often? Go ahead and buy. Tents are useful for keeping away surprise showers or frustrating winds, ensuring a more comfortable party for all.
Choose The Best Materials To Stave Off Any Weather Or Spill
What materials should you look into? As of now there are only two types available on the market — the polyester and the vinyl. While you won’t always be able to choose, depending on where you buy, it doesn’t hurt to tuck a little knowledge in your back pocket just in case. Vinyl is widely preferred because it’s durable, strong and very affordable. Polyester tents, however, can still get the job done.
Make Sure You Always Have Enough Room
So you’ve decided to rent a tent for a wedding or some wedding chairs to round out your set-up. What about making sure you have enough room? The first thing you need to do is estimate your guest count — make sure to leave a little wiggle room for last-minute additions. After that’s done, check out your tents and start estimating in square feet. 15 square feet for seating at tables and six square feet for cocktail areas is common and preferred.
Rent Your Equipment Instead Of Buying
From wedding to birthday party to Bar Mitzvah, renting party equipment is just a smarter choice. You don’t have to waste time with excess storage putting away supplies you only use two or three times per year. You can save money on expenses and reduce your stress when the special day rolls around. Best of all? You have a wealth of carpets, tents and chairs to choose from. Set a trend. Show your guests, and your sanity, you care.
