3 Types of Equipment You Can Hire for Your Wedding

Planning a wedding can be pretty overwhelming, especially if you don't have a professional event planner working for you. Although it takes a lot of time and effort, it's possible to plan and have the wedding of your dreams without outside help.

One of the important things to do when planning your wedding is to determine the essential equipment needed for a successful event. While each wedding is unique, certain types of equipment are common to almost all weddings. 

Here are some common types of equipment you can hire for your special day.   


On your wedding day, you'll want all your guests to be comfortably seated as they witness you and your significant other exchange vows. This means you'll need to have enough chairs at your event.

Because food will be served, you'll need to get some tables too. Event hire companies not only offer a variety of tables and chairs for wedding events but can also offer different options for dressing up the furniture to match the theme and style of each event. 

Audio-Visual Equipment 

Having the proper audio and visual equipment is also essential for ensuring a successful wedding. Audio equipment such as microphones, speakers, amplifiers, sound cables, audio mixers, and many more will provide sound for your event, allowing people to make speeches and listen to music.

On the other hand, visual equipment such as overhead projector screens will allow you to run video coverage of your event in real time so that everyone can see the goings-on from wherever they're seated at the wedding venue.


If you intend to have your wedding al fresco, you can benefit from using marquees. Marquees are essentially tents that have been specially designed for use in different events. There are many different types of marquees found on the events market today. These include:

  • Traditional marquees
  • Top marquees
  • Clear roof marquees
  • Moroccan marquees
  • Giant tipis 
  • Framed marquees

Rain or shine, you can't go wrong with marquees that will not only match the weather but will also give the look you want for your special day.

To ensure your guests have a great time at your wedding, you'll need to create the perfect setup for the event. Hiring the above types of equipment can go a long way in making your big day truly special and memorable. To discuss your event hire options and costs, talk to an event hire company near you.
