Event tips from hire industry professionals

Deciding Your Theme

One of the first things you need to decide between you is what kind of theme you would like to go for. Whether you choose something very specific or there’s simply a colour that you’d like to base your decor around, it will make the decisions later on a lot easier! We have created an article that is all about helping you to pick a theme, as well as showing you the trending wedding themes and trending tableware for 2024.

Make a list of everything you will need or want

There are so many things that you will need for your event, it can be easy to forget things that turn out to be essential on the day! Therefore, we would recommend that you make a list of everything you will need for the event, so you can tick things off as you go. 

Here is a list of some of the essentials that you will need to get you started:

Hire From A Reputable Company

Choosing which company to hire from is a big decision, and one that should not be taken lightly. Make sure that the company is trustworthy and experienced, with good customer service. Over the last 30 years that CMA Hire has been operating within the wedding and events industry, we have gathered a wide range of valuable experience and expertise. CMA Hire has been under new management from the 2023 season onwards and are undergoing a whole host of exciting new changes which makes us equipped to provide you with the best hire service possible.

Look After The Equipment!

At CMA Hire, we are proud that our equipment is high quality, but accidents can happen. Damaged hire equipment can incur charges, which is the last thing you (or the hire company) want! You can avoid this by ensuring it is used correctly, stored safely when not in use and sheltered from bad weather conditions. Being extra careful with your items allows you and others to enjoy the high quality equipment over and over again.
