Still unsure about a marquee?
If you choose to have a marquee for your wedding, it can create a really special atmosphere for you both, as well as your guests. You can actually take all of your dream plans and turn them into a reality. It will be akin to a blank canvas venue; like an empty loft space or a stretch of beach and you will be able to turn it into the perfect wedding venue, complete with electricity and luxury bathrooms. Marquee weddings can even turn simple spaces like your own back garden into a magical wedding space. So we have put together our top 5 benefits of having a marquee for your wedding:
There are many different benefits of a marquee wedding, not least the cost. By using marquee hire, you can turn a lower-cost space into the beautiful dream venue that you envisioned.
Accommodating larger guest lists
When you decide to have a marquee for your wedding, you can accommodate larger numbers of people easily. So your guest list won’t be as restricted as it could be with venues that have set occupancy limits. This is especially true if you’re using the outside areas of an estate that has expansive lawns and gardens. In those instances a clear-span marquee can hold larger guest lists within reason. Simply discuss your needs with a company such as Super Event.
Marquee hire can also be ideal for smaller, intimate weddings. Most venues will ask you to meet a minimum number of guests in order to reserve the space. This may lead to you paying for a larger guest list than you’ll actually need just to use the venue. With a small marquee setup you can have the intimate wedding of your dreams without sacrificing anything, including your budget.
Create a Unique Celebration
When you create your wedding from the ground up, the result is a design that only you and your guests will experience. By having the ability to pick and choose things like the flooring, tables, chairs, linen, there is less of a chance that another wedding will have the same design as yours. You then have the enjoyment of decorations: flowers, table decorations, wedding favours, lighting…all the fun bits that complete your design creativity and give you something special and unique to you for your wedding day.
Choosing to have a marquee also allows you to pick a location that is really special to you. Maybe you have a family farm where you spent the summers, your parent garden, or even grandparents. Perhaps it is a friends place that means the world to you… you can take that location and turn it into a meaningful wedding venue that completes your special day.
You could also choose a themed wedding. Having a marquee, you’ll have complete control over the design and the structure of the space so you can create a cohesive theme easily. Themed weddings are on the rise, with couples choosing something special to them and running the style throughout their wedding.
Enjoy More Flexibility
A marquee wedding can also allow for better flexibility in terms of your overall wedding. You won’t be limited by venue restrictions. Some venues will expect you to use their preferred suppliers and you will be given very little chance to choose anything different. The chairs will always be the same, as will the cutlery, crockery, glassware etc etc. Your wedding would look the same as the wedding from the week before…is that special enough for you?
If the weather is lovely, raise the sides of the marquee. If the weather is slightly more inclement, then keep them down. Totally flexible!
You will be far more flexible and relaxed with timings if you have a marquee at a venue of your choosing. You won’t be held to a time limit and can continue your wedding into the late hours of the night if desired. As long as the neighbours are happy with this – best put them on the guest list!
