Marquees provide one of the only true blank canvas settings at a wedding. They combine elegance with the flexibility to hold your wedding in the location of your choosing and when planned properly can be truly stunning. Here are a few tips to get you started with your marquee planning.
1). Choose a reputable marquee supplier!
Marquees can be tough nuts to crack and selecting a well-established company with plenty of experience is a must. We are partnered with 3 marquee companies and can manage the planning in its entirety, including internal styling, seating, flooring and lighting.
2). Choose the right location.
Double check your short list of marquee venues will actually allow wedding and event marquees on their site and if they do whether or not they have a nominated supplier. Make sure the location is easy to access and has plenty of nearby parking.
3). Think photographs.
Try and take into consideration the backdrop as well as the marquee at the space you’re considering. Which month are you getting married, how will the season affect the look and feel of your wedding?
4). Power, power, power!
Do your research with the power needed to run your wedding. Will you need a generator on site? There would be nothing worse then creating the perfect day and then having it fall to pieces at the last minute due to poor planning. We can guide you here and let you know what we’d recommend for your requirements.
5). Checking the small print
Check you are comfortable with the cancellation policy and payment terms for your venue, including deposit required and final payment date. Locations will vary and should you change your mind halfway through planning you’ll want to ensure you don’t loose out!
