What Are Marquees?

Marquees are the epitome of elegance and versatility when it comes to wedding venues. These spacious tents provide the perfect setting for an outdoor celebration whilst protecting guests from the elements. Marquees serve as a blank canvas, ready to be transformed with personalised touches like lighting, décor, and flooring.

Why Hire a Marquee for Your Wedding

There’s an undeniable charm to a marquee wedding. The concept of creating your own venue to mirror your unique style and personalities evokes a sense of romance that can’t be achieved at standard wedding venues.

Opting for a marquee wedding gives you the freedom to select your dream location, whether it’s a picturesque garden, tranquil beachfront, or grand estate. Unlike traditional venues, marquees give you full control over every detail of your wedding day, from the timings to the food.

Available in a range of sizes, wedding marquees cater to both intimate gatherings and large celebrations alike. Here at Southern Events, we offer a range of luxury marquees in various sizes available to hire for your wedding, ensuring a perfect fit for your special day.

How to Plan a Marquee Wedding

Planning a marquee wedding is an exciting journey with endless possibilities for making it your dream wedding. Here’s your guide to start planning.

 

Choose the Perfect Location

Beyond the marquee itself, choosing the ideal setting for your wedding is the most important thing. With a variety of location options to choose from – beaches, fields, gardens, - it’s important to consider factors like accessibility, parking, space, and permissions. 

Consider the Size and Style

With your guest list on hand, or a rough estimate of guests, it’s time to determine the size and style of marquee needed to accommodate everyone comfortably. Wedding marquees come in a variety of shapes and sizes offering you the flexibility to plan your celebration perfectly.

Set a Realistic Budget

Before diving into the planning process, establish a realistic budget for your wedding. Account for all expenses like marquee hire, catering, entertainment, décor, and any additional services. A clear budget always helps you to make informed decisions and prioritise essentials.

Find the Right Marquee Hire Company

Research and reach out to reputable marquee hire companies that are available for your date and are able to travel to your wedding location. Look for professionals who have a track record of crafting luxurious marquee weddings like Southern Events and can work within your budget.

Think About the Logistics

Ensure the logistical aspects of your marquee wedding are carefully thought out to guarantee smooth operations. Think about needs such as power, restroom facilities, parking arrangements, and heating or cooling options. By considering these details, you can create a great experience for you and your guests.

Plan the Layout and Personalise the Décor

Here’s where the creativity starts to flow as you infuse your and your partner’s personalities into every aspect of the celebration. With a marquee wedding, you have the freedom to plan and customise every detail, ensuring a truly unforgettable experience for everyone.

  • Do you provide any other services as part of the marquee hire?
    In addition to our hire packages, we offer lighting, furniture, heating, and cooling options, and more. Get in touch with us for any specific requests for your wedding.
  • How far in advance do I need to book?
    We accept bookings up to 18 months in advance of your desired date. To ensure you secure your preferred date and any additional options you may want, we recommend booking with us as soon as possible.
  • Can I visit a marquee set up before booking?
    We can certainly ask existing bookings if they’re open to visitors, although we can’t always guarantee this. We do have a wealth of images and drawings available to give you inspiration and ideas.
  • When will the marquee be set up and taken down?
    The marquee setup usually takes place on Wednesday and Thursday, and occasionally Fridays for larger bookings. We usually take down the marquee on Monday and Tuesday, however the specific timing may vary depending on the venue and size of the booking.
  • What is included in the set up?
    Before our team arrives at the venue, we like to make sure the grass is cut. When we get there, we’ll come in either an long wheel-based van or a 4x4 with a trainer, depending on how easy it is to access the property. then, we’ll mark out where everything goes and start with the set up. The time it takes can vary, but for a typical wedding marquee it can take a full day to get everything right.
  • Are there any restrictions on where the marquee can be set up?
    There generally aren’t any restrictions when it comes to setting up the marquee, however we do have to be cautious about setting up in high winds or gusts rated over 60mph. If the weather conditions are too severe, we may have to cancel the booking for safety reasons.
  • What are options for restroom facilities? Do you provide this?
    We don’t provide restroom facilities, but we have recommendations of local companies who can help.
