Organising a venue can be a headache at the best of times, and trying to synchronise the activities of three or four separate contractors can be a major part of it. You don’t want the marquee people, the hairdressers, the caterers and the photographer all turning up at the same time do you? Let somebody else take some of the stress off. The marquee hire companies of Norfolk deal with people organising events all the time; it’s what they do. They should therefore have their own contacts they can draw on to help you. Some may even be able to deliver the crockery on behalf of other companies at the same time that they deliver your marquee and accessories.
Hiring a marquee in Norfolk is all very well and good, but it’s not going to be much of a wedding if there’s nothing to sit on or eat your canapes off. When organising your next wedding, business launch or public event, put aside a little bit of time in order so consider what new angles the event hire of a few extra accessories can bring.
If you expect 1,000 people, and you determine .00 a person is acceptable, then your entire budget for food, printing, entertainment, etc., is ,000. If you expect only 20 people and you know they won’t come if it’s over .00 a person, then you know you’re far more limited.
It is advisable to give out RSVPs to figure out the total number of guests can come. This will help your catering service calculate the quantity of drinks and food to provide. Buffet is an effective solution as it enables your wedding guests to pick from the variety of recipes and then go back and forth, as they wish. If buffet does not sound effective to you personally, you will need servers.
Another factor to determine before we select a location is how much your attendees are willing to pay. Sure, we can work the other way: we can pick a location, hire a band, select the menu, etc., and then add up how much it all costs and thus determine how much everyone needs to pay, but doing so will probably leave you hurting in the end.
With a formal sit down dinner you will need to hire a caterer. A reception centre may include the cost of a caterer or you may have booked out an entire restaurant for your function. For a casual event a barbecue may suffice or even a spit roast served with salads and jacket pockets, which is a cost effective option. Remember, when planning the food provide alternatives for vegetarians and those with allergies. Importantly, serve food that will suit the occasion.
You can even save on insurance with some companies. Anyone putting on any event knows all too well that public liability insurance is vital. But you even need it for these units (let’s face it, if some important has an accident, the lawsuit could not only be embarrassing, but extremely expensive). Find a rental company that offers insurance on its units. They might even include it as standard.
