What, we hear you ask, is a dry hire venue? ‘Dry’ does not sound good for any kind of celebration, but let us explain. ‘Dry hire’ simply means that you hire a venue that does not have its own bar or bar facilities, catering, entertainment or staff. This may sound like a lot of extra work but there are many reasons why booking dry hire could be exactly what you need to make your event well and truly your own.
A dry hire venue could be anything from an exquisite room in a stately home to a cavernous converted warehouse, and everything in between – it’s only your imagination that can limit you here. Any building or place of interest, with the right planning, can be turned into your perfect, bespoke party or wedding venue.
With the necessity to plan and hire everything yourself you gain complete control of the event, making it as personal as can be. You can go wild with themes and props, choosing exactly how you want your blank canvas to look and feel on the big day. For many event and wedding planners a dry hire venue is a dream come true as it allows them to really unleash their creative flair and show off their exemplary organizational skills.
Depending on your venue of choice dry hire tends to be a cheaper option which means you can shift your budget to finding the right bar team, caterers and entertainment to suit you and your event. It’s undoubtedly more work, but with the right help it can make for a truly memorable occasion. You’re paying for the event so why not choose something that really reflects your personality?
The Vino Van Events Ltd offers a choice of four new pop-up bars that are perfect for dry hire venues. Built so they can be assembled quickly and easily but designed to look like a free-standing marble bar. You can choose between a classic prosecco, cocktail, gin or full bar – though naturally we’re happy to discuss your ideas for the event.
