Why Marquees Make The Perfect Venue

When planning any kind of celebration, whether it’s a birthday party, an anniversary or your wedding, hiring a marquee could be the best venue option. As a venue, marquees are incredibly versatile, allowing you to create an event exactly as you want it. You don’t have to limit your guest numbers, you can build a space to meet your needs, use your chosen catering company and create the décor to meet your wildest dreams!

Imagine a beautiful countryside or stunning coastal setting for a summer wedding, or a winter themed party in your own garden strewn with stunning lighting.

Just in case you need any further persuasion, we’ve put together our top 5 reasons why a marquee is a perfect solution for any party.

1. They are incredibly versatile

Marquee weddings and parties, offer you the opportunity to entirely design your wedding to your taste. There are no restrictions on how many quests to invite, who to use for catering or where to have the wedding. All you need is a large space, which could even be your back garden or a field.

2. They provide you with a blank canvas

When it comes to how you decorate your marquee, the sky really is the limit. With no restrictions regarding decorations or preferred suppliers to use, you can let your imagination run wild and go to town on interior décor and layout of your venue. With so many themes to choose from, traditional, vintage, festival or beach party to name just a few, you can create something unique and individual, that means something special to you and your guests.

3. You can tailor a marquee to suit your budget

Whether you are planning the most elaborate wedding or a small gathering, marquees can cater for all budgets. You can rope in the family to help you decorate the marquee or you can hire a wedding planner to help you make your dream wedding come true. The same is true with the catering. You could hire a sommelier to help you choose the perfect wine list or find your own wine. You can pick the best caterer to wow your quests with the most amazing food or you can do the catering yourself. A marquee is a blank canvas for you to create the most amazing event that matches to your budget.

4. There’s no limit to the location

With the help of a specialist marquee team, such as ourselves, you can have your event wherever you decide (subject of course to the permission of the landowner and a site survey). From start to finish our team will help you plan the layout, discuss what extras you might need (a bar area, a dance floor, a chill out room, and not forgetting catering equipment and the loos), build your dream venue and breakdown the marquee at the end of the day.

Wherever you decide to locate it, make sure you make the most of the outside views with either a glass or frame marquee. Both of these options provide large clear windows and roofs that allow guests to enjoy the fabulous views whatever the weather may bring.

5. You can decide when you want to stop the party

You can party the night away until the cows come home in a marquee! This is your big day and no one should be telling you when to stop the party. When you hire a marquee as your venue, you are free to choose how long the party goes on for. Just make sure your neighbours are invited too!
