How to Find the Perfect Tent for Your Event

If you are planning a wedding, Bar Mitzvah, graduation, or anniversary party, trying to find the perfect venue isn't always an easy task. That's why tents for events seem to be a popular choice in 2020. You can have your event in your backyard in Hollywood, in a park or on the beach for half the cost of a catering hall or party room in a restaurant. Often we read reviews online and have no idea if they are truthful or not. There are so many wedding and event sites to choose from; it could make a future bride and groom's head spin! When you're planning one of the most important events in your life, it goes without saying that you want everything to be perfect. It's easy to do when you find the ideal caterer, DJ, lighting, etc. along with the perfect tent rental from Sunshine Tents & Event Rentals. We have tents to rent for every occasion, including birthday parties, weddings, and corporate events, as well as more intimate events that require smaller tents. People always ask us, how do we find a great caterer for our event? Read on for some of the tips we've compiled.

How to find the best caterer for your event:

  1. Ask friends and relatives- this is probably the most tried and true way to select a catering service. Contact some trusted websites like The Knot and Wedding Wire for information.
  2. Taste the food - try to schedule tastings as part of the interview process. The caterer will show you a pretty picture of the food that they serve, but that doesn't give you a sense of what the food tastes like. If they value their reputation, they will have something on hand for you to taste.
  3. Obtain a rough plan - Ask each caterer you visit to draw up a rough outline to include details like cost per person, menu options, presentation, and style, and is there a less expensive menu option.
  4. Get references –  The caterer will probably have a book or wall full of glowing testimonials. Go to an event website (not theirs) and search to see unbiased reviews. While a caterer may not want to give out personal information about their clients, some may be willing to give you a few to call. Ask questions like:
  1. Did the food live up to your expectations?
  2. How was the food presented and prepared?
  3. Was the staff personable and efficient?
  4. Did the menu and costs meet your expectations?
  5. Were there any hidden costs or surprises?
