If you are looking into marquee hire then the chances are that you’re planning a wedding. Rental companies also supply marquees for parties, corporate events and whatever else you need them for but the vast majority of tent hire is for weddings, whether as a nice alternative venue for the ceremony itself perhaps if you want outdoor but can’t trust the weather or for the reception afterwards, marquees are a very popular way of holding a wedding.
Why? Because, even once you factor in furniture hire, lighting, heating, toilet facilities and all the other little add-ons, a marquee can still work out cheaper than hiring a hall. Also, if you hire a hall, what you see is what you get, you can tart it up a bit and put your personality on it but there are limits, while a marquee is essentially a designable space that you can plonk into the location of your choice. There is an extraordinary amount of variation in the style and décor of marquees for weddings and you may as well take full advantage of it.
Weddings are extremely personal affairs, the most memorable ones tend to be those that reflect the personality of the bride and groom. If your wedding has a theme, a color scheme, or just an overall tone and ambience, then your marquee can be used to reflect that. All the best hire companies offer customers the option of really putting their stamp on the venue. This is one reason that marquee hire from marquees direct selling firms for weddings is so popular; if you can’t find a hall in your price range that suits your plans you’re stuck, but if one marquee doesn’t suit you then you can just look at another. There may be difference in cost based on specifically what you want but it’s certainly the more flexible route.
Marquee hire and pavilion hire for weddings is also popular because it has many of the advantages of an outdoor wedding with few of the restrictions. Outside of gale force winds and torrential downpours you are reasonably safe from whatever the British weather can throw at you. But if it’s warm and sunny, you can still feel the heat; you can open the doors and flaps to their fullest extent and get the benefit of the fine weather. Plus you can pick a nice country location without renting an expensive country hotel.
A marquee also has the advantage that if you find a church you like for the ceremony you may not be able to find a suitable place for the reception nearby, a marquee is so much less demanding, and all you need is somewhere to set it up.
Marquee hire is relatively easy over the internet, and is hassle free provided that you know what you’re looking for. Many sites will have a calculator into which you enter a few simple details and then get an estimated price for the hire.
