If you’ve decided your next event is going to be outdoors, you’ll need to decide on how you’re going to create a space for your guests. If you don’t know your marquees from your party tents, then here’s a roundup of all the common options that can make your next outdoor event a real showstopper.
If you’re wondering what option might work best for you, to understand what the differences are, then we’re here to set the record straight. We’ve broken down the main differences between a marquee and party tent below, we’ve defined each one so you know what will fit the bill when you’re next on the lookout.
Marquees are quite simply on another scale to party tents or other outdoor event options. With highly customisable interiors and sizes ranging from modest up to downright huge, marquees offer a versatile space for an outdoor event where you can create the right atmosphere and bring your event to life. A blank canvas, a marquee can be heated, cooled, and lit to create an indoor space that invites the outdoors in with vast clear sides or ceilings to draw the location in. Heavy duty structures that have got plenty of that wow factor, a marquee is a great option for weddings, corporate events and many more party ideas.
Here at Crystal Marquee’s, we have catered for many various functions that have required a marquee of some nature, or type. If you are considering a marquee for your next event, then get in touch or try out our online marquee planner by following the link.
When people refer to a party tent, they tend to be the middle ground in terms of scale. Usually without flooring, it’s a larger covered space that creates that party atmosphere for medium budgets, but still offers you the all-important protection from the elements. A party tent also offers you less options in terms of customisation with a more lightweight frame than a marquee, so you can’t hang decor from the structure. When compared to a marquee, they’re often easier to install and remove too, so time on the site of your event is reduced too.
So, as you can see the above outlines the main differences between a marquee and a party tent. The marquee offers an opportunity to develop a whole atmosphere and experience to convey a complete theme. The party tent is just that; a big tent, or a tent that caters for various numbers, though great at keeping you any from the elements, they can be somewhat restrictive in terms of interior décor.
