Thinking of Hiring a Wedding Marquee?

wedding venues essex

Your wedding day is the most memorable day of your life and the venue is one of the most important parts of it. With a range of different wedding venues on offer how do you know what venue is best for you?

Many people now opt for wedding marquees. They are actually a great idea, being very spacious and with lots of outdoor space its perfect for a summer wedding. Being outdoors its perfect for photos and allows your guests to easily socialise outside. Many hire companies will offer complete packages including the marquee hire, tables, chairs, dance floors and more, all included in a bundle.

Whilst traditional indoor receptions are still incredibly popular in the wedding industry, many are limited with space, as well as this the bigger venues will often cater for more than one function at a time, somewhat taking away the feeling that the venue is purely focussing on making your day as best as can be.

Marquees are great for wedding of all sizes, with companies such as Abbey Marquee Hire Essex providing a range of marquees that hold up to 700 people, which is more than a lot of other venues will offer! Spotlights and floodlights can even be hired alongside so you can keep the party going all through the night.

With so much outdoor space available there is no limit on your decorations allowing you to carry on your theme outside, creating photo backdrops or photo booths and chill out zones where your guests can relax throughout the day able to view the beautiful surroundings of your choice.

There are many perks to hiring a marquee for your wedding, whether its just for the reception or the whole ceremony it can often work much better than an indoor venue, not to mention can be considerably cheaper if you or a family member has land big enough to hold it. Some wedding venues may also offer the option to have the ceremony there and the reception in a marquee in the grounds.

So when you are looking for a venue for your wedding, why not also consider a marquee? Did you have your wedding in a marquee, or are you planning too? Share your experiences in the comments box below.

    I love the idea of marquees for a wedding. My sister had one for her wedding (and was lucky enough to have great weather) and it looked fab inside with all her decorations.
