Planning your wedding is a hugely exciting time for any couple! Whatever your dream wedding looks like, lots of careful thought goes into pulling it off.

What size generator do I need?

This is one of the most common questions we get asked here at Grizzly Bear Events! Lots of our clients come to us needing a generator for their wedding, but they’re simply unsure of what size they need. With so many different generators out there, each one offering a different amount of power, we know that it can quickly get confusing- but it doesn’t have to be that way! With our wedding generator hire, we want to make hiring the right generator for your needs as easy as possible. 

Firstly, we encourage you to speak to all of your other suppliers to find out about the wattage they’ll need. You can then add these up to get the total wattage, and ensure you allow for the power factor of 0.8 between the KVA generator and kw. For example, a 40kva generator will produce 32kw. 

If you’re still unsure about what generator is right for your needs, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help!
