Outdoor parties are usually refreshing and memorable, but you need to choose the right marquee to make yours a successful event. With their signature style, marquees create a ready-made theme for the party. So, without beating about the bush, let’s get into the heart of the matter quickly.


Schupepe Tents outdoor marquee wedding

Below, you will learn how you can choose the right marquee tent for your outdoor party:

1. Consider your choices properly
If your requirement involves a room in a field, a marquee is what will suit you the most. Marquees are classic, solid, versatile, and opulent and can be stripped back. They work fine irrespective of whether you are looking for string lights or chandeliers. A marquee offers a large degree of flexibility as it doesn’t have too many poles in the centre.

2. Number of guests
This is a given; still, people fail to consider the number of guests that are going to be in their party. Consequently, the size of the tent they choose may prove to be inadequate in accommodating everyone comfortably, or it may be too large and it may seem that a handful of people are sitting in a large hall, which will also look awkward.

3. Climate
This is another factor, which is surprisingly overlooked by people when it comes to choosing a marquee for outdoor parties. You need to consider both the average climatic and the temporary weather condition in your area and choose the right type of fabric accordingly. Decide whether you need a cold weather marquee or one for warm conditions. Such details will help you make better arrangements.

4. Extra space
The thought of extra space should be on your mind based on the type of event you’re hosting. For example, if a party requires a lot of tables and chairs, you may need a bit of extra space. This factor needs to be considered while zeroing in on the size of a marquee.

5. Quality of the fabric
Ensure that the fabric of the tent is of high quality and durable so that it doesn’t sustain scratches too easily.

6. Make an informed choice
This is again something that people don’t seem to care much about at all and can end up having a disappointing experience because of it. Marquees come in different varieties, offering a lot of flexibility based on your theme. You can choose a traditional marquee, stretch tent, modular pods or any other variant as per your requirement. Ask yourself whether you’re looking for a traditional option or a modern one.

Conclusion
Marquees are like a blank canvas, but when you choose them for a party, it is important to think of the vibe and the overall atmosphere you want to create, and the requirements you have. Whether you’re organising a band party, private party or want to erect a unique wedding venue, marquees make for the most versatile, flexible and beautiful choice for every occasion.

Marquee or Hotel? What You Should Choose For Your Wedding Party http://www.schupepetents.co.nz/marquee-or-hotel-what-you-should-choose-for-your-wedding-party/ Tue, 27 Jun 2017 22:41:17 +0000 http://www.schupepetents.co.nz/?p=22785 The post Marquee or Hotel? What You Should Choose For Your Wedding Party appeared first on .

You are planning to organise a big wedding party; you set a date, and want to turn this event into something really memorable. However, you have to achieve everything with a limited budget. So, you are in a dilemma about what to choose — a marquee or a hotel for the big day. Making the right decision here is the first step that you take towards achieving your goal.

There are many aspects of planning a successful party such as timing, location, budget, number of guests etc. The decision should be weighed in terms of how flexible your choice is on different parameters. Hiring a marquee provides a lot of flexibility in terms of design and size, lighting, space, and, of course, location. You can arrange it in your small garden or in an open field; the options are limitless.

Marquees over hotels, here are the reasons:

1. Flexible Design
Hiring a marquee for a wedding party has a clear advantage. It offers immense flexibility in terms of design. You can have larger clear span marquees with small Pagoda style marquees alongside for a bar or a dance floor. You can change everything, right from carpet designs to interior decoration. You can also add your own style and character, which is difficult to implement in hotels.

2. Advantage of Merging With Surroundings
Hiring a marquee enables you to merge with preferred surroundings. If you like a particular view, you will be able to make the most of it. Frame marquees are good for such occasions as they come with clear window walls and roofs. Your guests will have a fantastic view of the natural surroundings around them, even when they are inside the marquee.

3. No Restrictions on Number of Guests
Hotels have strict limitations on the number of guests because of their fixed size. That is not the case with marquee parties. You can make last minute changes to accommodate more guests. A marquee is like a flexible room, which can easily be expanded in size in order to make it a perfect fit for your celebration.

Wedding Parties

4. Budget-Friendly
Managing a wedding party in a hotel is quite an expensive affair. Marquee weddings, on the other hand, fall within your budget. You have a wide range of options in everything, right from decor, caterers, menu to bar — you can really choose suppliers as per your pocket.

5. Ample Room for Creativity
Marquee wedding parties can be ideal if you want to do your own thing, which is a far cry from the traditional stuff. You can select a modern or a classic style, a vintage or a beach theme and the list goes on and on.

Summing Up…
By now, you should have some clarity about which of the two options is a better choice for a wedding party. There is no denying the fact that the kind of experience you get in marquee wedding parties is completely different from the one that you get to see in hotels or banquet halls. So, if a perfect setting for your events is what you are looking for, consider hiring a marquee wedding company.

10 WEDDING TRADITIONS EXPLAINED http://www.schupepetents.co.nz/10-wedding-traditions-explained/ Fri, 05 May 2017 23:43:25 +0000 http://temp1001.seopro.co.nz/?p=6530 The post 10 WEDDING TRADITIONS EXPLAINED appeared first on .

]]>

While traditional weddings are becoming a thing of the past, there are some specific traditions that we just can’t do without. There are some rituals that have been passed down that have become an integral part of the marriage ceremony. We LOVE weddings here at Schupepe Tents & Marquees. So we decided to do a little investigating and this is what we have found…


Schupepe Tents

  1. In ancient Rome, wedding guests traditionally broke a loaf of bread over the bride’s head as it was supposed to bring her good fortune when it came to fertility. This evolved into the wedding cake getting smashed in her face.
  2. It was once believed that your ring finger (the fourth finger of the left hand) contained a vein that led directly to the heart.
  3. The phrase tying the knot came to be because several cultures around the world – Hindu, Celtic and Egyptian – to name a few – actually tied the hands of the bride and groom together to signify their commitment to each other.
  4. Wedding veils were worn in ancient Greece and Rome because it was supposed to protect the bride from evil spirits.
  5. Apparently the bride was especially susceptible to evil spirits. She was traditionally carried across the threshold so that her groom could protect her from those pesky demons which the groom is inexplicably immune to.
  6. Even the bridesmaids were recruited to protect the bride from these pesky devils by wearing matching gowns in order to confuse the demons and bring good fortune to the marriage. To be fair, the groomsmen dressed in similar attire – but this was not to confuse the spirits but to thwart jealous suitors that may attempt to high-jack the bride.
  7. The bridal bouquet was originally made up of bunches of garlic, grains, and herbs to drive off Beezlebub and his minions.
  8. Shoes tied to the car bumper evolved from the bride’s father giving the groom the bride’s shoes before the ceremony to prevent her from running away and to symbolize that the father was now handing over the possession of his daughter to his son-in-law.
  9. The best man’s job was not to guard the ring but to guard the future bride (who was often captured due to a lack of available women in the groom’s clan or tribe) – just in case her family tried to come steal her back during the ceremony.
  10. One of the oldest surviving customs still practiced during wedding ceremonies – is the tossing of the garter. This custom came about because witnesses were required to make sure that the marriage was consummated. They would come back and use the garter as proof that the deed was done.

Schupepe Tents

While many of these wedding traditions have evolved to fit the times, the one factor that remains constant is that weddings certainly can stretch the budget. Schupepe Tents offers marquees and stretch tents to allow you to have your wedding anywhere, at any time you choose. This significantly reduces the cost of an expensive venue so that you can buy the cake, the veil, the rings, and extra shoes to tie to the bumper of your car!

One of the very first things that any couple must do after deciding to say “I do,” is to choose and secure a wedding venue. Tis the season for weddings here at Schupepe! We have had the pleasure of placing our wedding marquees on some of the most beautiful outdoor locations that New Zealand has to offer. Whether it is private estates or residences, public beaches, golf resorts, or even farms – we have seen it all! As such, we know a thing or two about what couples need to know about choosing and securing an outdoor wedding venue. Listed below is a checklist which will help you pick the perfect venue that will suit all of your needs.

guest list

First things first!

1/ The guest list must be completed so that you have an idea of how many people the venue will need to accommodate.
2/ You should have a list of dates that are suitable, so you can confirm availability.
3/ Obviously, you will need to consider your budget.
4/ You and your partner should compose a list of your most important, non-negotiable priorities before visiting any venue.
5/ As it is an outdoor event, you will want to ensure that the venue will allow marquees to be placed upon their grounds.

Venue Location

It is important to consider the location of your wedding venue in terms of how far your guests will need to travel. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

What is the traffic going to be like during the time-frames of your wedding?
Will you be able to post signs to help out-of-town guests?
If you are providing transport, ensure that guests are provided with entertainment and maybe even beverages!
For those using their own vehicles, ensure that there are adequate parking facilities.
Make sure that there is suitable accommodation nearby for out-of-town guests.

Questions you may not have considered:

1. Is there a discount for booking an off-season date or Sunday through Friday?
2. Is the deposit refundable?
3. Is the site handicap accessible?
4. What is the cancellation policy?
5. Is there an overtime fee if my ceremony runs longer than expected?
6. Can my vendors set up the day before? How early can deliveries be made?
7. Does the venue have liability insurance?
8. Is there a recycling policy?
9. Are there any areas that you and your guests will not have access to?
10. Is there a noise ordinance you need to be aware of?
