Hiring a marquee for an outdoor function is very
beneficial as it is not only beautiful, it provides shelter against sun, wind
and rain. Some people prefer to hold only their wedding reception inside the
tent while others would like the whole day including the party afterwards
inside the marquee.
If you hire a marquee you have the freedom of choosing your day’s flow. If you do not use a marquee you are so to say
confined in a closed room being the hall where the wedding will take
place. With a marquee tent, even if it
rains you can still have a elegant, fabulous time outside and if it doesn’t
rain you are free to move around between the garden and the tent.
Some people choose to have the marquee set up at a hotel or lodge so that the
hotel has full responsibility of setting up and service before, during and
after the function. This way you do not have to worry about the
catering, décor, music, entertainment or clearing of plates etc. This is a perfect way of managing a large
wedding where hundreds of guests are involved, it gives you more time to
socialize with your guests. It gives you
more time to relax and enjoy your special day.
You will also be assisting the hotel by guests making use of their
accommodation and facilities and referring their friends to the establishment
in the future.
For those who have access to a large garden or venue to put up their marquee
tend to organize and manage everything themselves. This could be more time consuming and stressful
but it allows your creativity to flow and you can have every little thing in
its place exactly as you want it. This is especially good for the bride that is
very organized and a good planner. There
is nothing more frustrating than the end result different from the one you had
Having a marquee set up for your function at your home or own venue allows for
control over last minute changes. If
more people arrive than expected, one can always cater for them as well. If the weather turns bad, you could always
accommodate your guests indoors at your home.
Another benefit is that your guests can overnight at your house, saving
them accommodation fees, leaving them with more cash to give to the brides pair
as a gift!
