A lot of people today are looking to cut the costs of hosting a special event such as a rehearsal dinner, an anniversary party, or even a wedding by hosting it in their own backyard.
When you host a special event at your home, you can save thousands of dollars in rental hall fees, money you can put toward making your party more fabulous with a lavish dinner or elaborate entertainment.
And when you have a patio cover attached to your home, you have an even bigger benefit: Insurance against bad weather.
Protection from the Elements
Your patio cover provides a durable barrier between your guests and any inclement weather, such as rain, hail or snow. It’s the perfect place to set up the one area practically every guest will visit: The bar.
Underneath your patio cover is also a great place to set up a buffet, if you are using one. Not only does it protect the food from the sun and rain, but it allows your guests to pick and choose the items they want outside of the harsh sunlight.
An Inside Party … Outside!
If you are hosting your event inside your home, rather than in your backyard, your patio cover gives your guests somewhere to go to get away from the hub of activity if they want. This is especially helpful if you have guests who smoke because they can enjoy their habit without your having to worry about their smoke getting in your draperies, carpeting or clothing.
Having a patio cover simply gives you more options when you want to host a special event at your home — whether it’s indoors our outdoors.
