From a cost per head perspective, a party rental with tent, tables and chairs including
delivery and setup can be as low as $5.00 per head and can top over $25.00 per
head. The equipment and service needed for a backyard barbecue is very different
than a wedding reception.

Using a single rental company is usually the most cost effective way to have a tented
wedding. Make sure any quote you receive includes delivery, setup and take down
costs. Some companies will not automatically add setup and take down in their quote
(see:
choosing a rental company).

If your comparing quotes from company to company be sure you compare all costs
accurately. Some rental companies have lower grade tents and equipment or quote
using smaller tents by cramming more guests per table. Also, important details such as
delivery and setup provisions may be left out. If information like the access to you
property
is left out of a quote and your site is limited you could get hit with a large last minute
labor
charge. The old saying of comparing apples with apples and oranges with oranges
definitely applies to party rentals.

Finding the right caterer is usually easier with a tented event (see:
choosing a caterer).
Many banquet halls severely limit what caterers you may use, this can drive up caterer
costs and limit food choices. Since you can contract any caterer that you choose, the
market is more competitive. Self catering or self catering components of your dinner
also can save big dollars .

Options such as an open bar will be significantly less expensive. Just a champagne
toast in a banquet hall can add hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to your bill.

Vendors such as decorators and florists, may give you a price brake if they can come in
on a Friday instead of a Saturday morning. Entertainers such a DJ’s or band are similar
priced whether in a tent or a banquet facility. They may require you to rent a stage or
platform to protect their equipment.

Permitting can ad some cost to the tent rental. Most towns simply require a certificate of
fire resistance of the tent fabric and a permit fee. Most rental companies will give you a
copy of the fire certificate at no charge. Then its just a matter of filing out a permit and
paying a small permit fee. Permit fees are usually between 25.00 to 100.00.

You may require the addition of a portable restroom. Basic units can be rented for as
low as 150.00 dollars. High end portable restroom trailers can cost as much as 2 to 3
thousand
dollars.
