Weddings can be expensive affairs. With so many different things to manage and organise, it’s no wonder the costs soon add up.
One of the biggest outgoings by far for most weddings is the venue. There are a huge amount of options, including hotels, village halls, barns and stately homes, but what if you want to do something a bit different?
If this is you, a marquee wedding could be just the thing you’re looking for! In this article we’re taking a look at all the reasons why marquee weddings are becoming more and more popular as an alternative to the more traditional venue options.
What Are the Benefits of a Marquee Wedding?
One of the main reasons that people choose to host their wedding in a marquee is due to the level of control it gives them – not just in the location, but also the size, guestlist, catering and decoration. When you have a marquee wedding, every single level of detail is completely down to you. This can include things like the lighting, the dance floor, the layout of the space and where everyone sits down to eat. This is a huge benefit for many couples who want to have a completely unique and personal wedding, rather than something that looks similar to every other wedding that’s been hosted in that location.
Cost is another huge benefit. When it comes to weddings, prices can very quickly get out of control, especially in more expensive areas like Essex. Marquee weddings allow you to have much more control over spending, with complete visibility over how much every aspect costs and what is within your budget. Without the huge initial bill for renting the venue, your budget can also stretch much further, allowing you to add on things that you may not have been able to otherwise.
As with many things, there are a few things to be aware of when booking your marquee wedding. Firstly, depending on your location you should be mindful of your neighbours. It can be tempting to keep the party going all night long, but do be courteous and let them know that you’re holding a wedding nearby and turn the music down by a reasonable time.
While marquees can be used all year around with the right heating and lighting options, you should also note that prices for marquee hire can vary by season, and may be a bit more expensive during the popular summer months. Other suppliers can also up their prices during the busier seasons, so it’s worth checking all of this while drawing up your budget.
As marquees are a bit more of a DIY option, you may also need to be on hand to help with the clear up once your event has finished – or draft in some good friends to do it on your behalf!
