5 Tipps für Feiern in einem Event-Zelt

A celebration in an event tent always promises to be a success. No other event location is as special and comes with such an extraordinary atmosphere. Be it a wedding, a corporate event, a summer party or birthday party – an event tent is the ideal venue for a successful day.

You don't have to worry about the weather or the number of guests – high-quality event tents can withstand any weather and can be purchased in many sizes.

In this article, we will provide you with the most important tips so that you can plan your next family party, corporate event or wedding in an event tent without having to worry.

1. Pay attention to the quality of the event tent – no matter for which event

The quality of the marquee is essential if you do not want to be left stranded in water in case of rain or are afraid of seeing the marquee collapse as soon as there is a gust of wind. The quality of the party tent is usually recognisable by the materials used and the workmanship. For an event tent to be stable it has to have a stable roof and side panels. There are countless inexpensive variants such as folding gazebos that can be easily damaged. High-quality pagoda tents, on the other hand, are often made of solid wood to ensure stability.

An event tent is suitable for the following celebrations:

  • Wedding in an event tent
  • Corporate event in an event tent
  • Family celebration in an event tent
  • Trade fairs and exhibitions
  • Concerts and festivals in an event tent
  • And many more

2. A celebration in an event tent? Be careful to choose the right season

You want to host a corporate event, family celebration or wedding in an event tent, but in winter? No problem! It is a common misconception that party tents can only be used in summer. Especially in winter, a gazebo that can be used year-round makes for an incomparable event location, without the need to freeze. There are special marquees for celebrations during the cold season, which are offered by tent rental companies including radiators and whose roof tarpaulins can carry snow.

Often, even the most beautiful day and the best mood can be ruined by a cold wind, which is why you should make sure that the party tent has side walls or weatherproof curtains. This can also be an advantage in summer. On the other hand, the side panels should also be permeable to wind in summer, in order to prevent the tent from heating up in summer. 

When renting a tent, you should find out whether the tents are suitable for winter or summer, so as not to experience any nasty surprises. High-quality models such as those from STROHBOID can be used all year round and can even be heated.

3. How many people are expected for the celebration in an event tent?

Marquees are available in a wide variety of sizes. Whether it's a small, cosy family celebration in an event tent or a large birthday celebration, there is a suitable event tent for any occassion. However, make sure to choose the right size marquee for the number of guests expected. Just as there is limited space in a room, an event tent only has a certain capacity. 

In summer, a party can of course be taken outdoors, but what about inclement weather or in winter? In order for every guest being able to find a cosy spot and the celebration being an undisturbed success, think carefully about how big the event tent should be.

You can usually find out the number of people that can be accommodated when renting or purchasing a tent. Before deciding on the marquee, you should know your guest list with the exact number. As is often the case, it is better to have too much space than too little.

4. Consider activities and be prepared

When choosing the size of the event tent, the activities planned for the celebration should be considered. If, for example, you have a band playing at your wedding, or a buffet with a catering area to add appeal to your event, the required space has to be taken into account.

If your guests like to dance, they need a suitable place where nothing can get damaged and nothing stands in the way of a great mood. You should choose your venue depending on the activities planned. 

It is advisable to leave generous space for the buffet or catering area in order to avoid crowds when fetching food. Above all, seating is a must in a pagoda. Beer tent sets or banquets are popular for this purpose, although it should be noted that the benches and tables should not be placed too close to each other.

5. Create a pleasant atmosphere with the right decoration

In order to make the event location look unique, a beautiful decoration is essential. With fairy lights, flowers, balloons, bunting and much more, a great atmosphere can be conjured up quickly and easily. The decoration should be adapted to the seasons and the occasion.

A summer party in an event tent

If you are planning a summer festival in an event tent, for example, plants or seating can be placed in front of the tent, provided the weather is favourable.

A winter festival in an event tent

But winter also offers beautiful decoration ideas. With candles, lights and radiant heaters, you can not only give the party tent a cosy feel, but also provide warmth. At a wedding or birthday party, photos can be hung up to make the room more personal.
