The Outdoor Venue

An alternative option for a venue is a marquee, which are great for enjoying drinks and entertainment on the lawn. Marquees are purpose built wedding venues, which can give you complete freedom of choice.

The fact that a marquee is a blank canvass gives you the opportunity to apply any theme to it and make it your own bespoke reception venue. Marquee companies have a wide range of background colours, chairs, flooring and drapes that can fit your theme. Many marquee companies offer unique lighting as part of the package. Why not consider starlights, which could dramatically appear when evening approaches, either throughout the whole marquee or to create a special atmosphere on the dance floor.

With enough space, you can have a screened-off reception area where drinks can be served before dinner. A marquee can also be used as an extension to an existing reception room if you have a particularly large wedding party. Your chosen venue will inform you if this is an option. Alternatively, marquees can be set up almost anywhere and can be a fantastic option for garden weddings.

When you are considering using a marquee, look through the portfolio of previous weddings and see just how versatile the look can be. Remember not to forget the toilet facilities for the location and parking for your guests.

No matter what time of year you hold your wedding, British weather will be British weather, and so you need a contingency plan just in case the heavens open. The marquee should provide enough room for the reception as well as the wedding breakfast and dancing, just in case you all have to crowd in for shelter.
