Wedding Marquee Hire: Everything To Consider

Wedding Marquee Hire: Everything To Consider

Marquees and weddings just go hand in hand. The super popular, versatile and stylish outdoor wedding option is one every couple should consider.

Marquees offer couples the opportunity to truly get creative and personal. Create your own venue, to your own specifications and with your own style and personality in mind. And with so many styles and décor ideas, a marquee wedding can be oh so different from all the rest.

But before you start running away with ideas, there are somethings to really consider before signing the booking form. Marquees carry some real logistics, and its best to have everything covered before running away with ideas. So, here’s everything you need to consider when looking at hiring a marquee for your wedding day.


The Perfect Site

Of course, this is the first step in booking a marquee for your wedding. Some Wedding Venues will allow you to put up a marquee on their lawns, allowing you to use any other buildings for your ceremony and accommodation.

Other venues will let you only use the land, with the buildings creating a backdrop.  With either of these types of venues, you have options and space to host a gorgeous marquee reception.

Some couples opt for using their own gardens or land. With this, there is of course some more considerations to bear in mind, including the practicalities of hosting your reception on your own property.  Is there adequate access to the marquee for your suppliers and guests? Do you have adequate toilet facilities for all your guests? Is there parking available? Power supply? Running water for your caterers? Nearby accommodation? Where will your ceremony be?

There is a lot more logistically to hosting your marquee reception on your own land – but beautifully personal and romantic too.

If you’re looking for the perfect marquee friendly venue, we have lots of recommended, Yorkshire based venues that we have worked with previously. From woodland sites, stately homes and even castles.

Your guest list

You won’t need a definitive answer from your guests just yet, but it’s worth knowing a ball park figure of the guests you intend to invite and expect to attend. This number is vital when discussing and considering the size of the marquee you want and need for your day. There is nothing worse than a space that is too big for your event as it can feel empty and sparse, or a space that is much too small.


The design of your marquee

There are so many beautiful and unique designs to consider when it comes to a marquee, and all should be considered when thinking of the style and feel you want from your day. You may even opt for a stretch tent or yurt.

Do you want an expansive space where all guests can gather? Do you want the dance floor hidden until the evening? Have you got your heart set on long banquet tables, or would you prefer round? All of these options will have an implication on the style and design of the marquee you choose.

At Yorkshire Yurts, we can create a truly versatile and unique space. Choose from a traditional pole marquee, a beautifully handcrafted yurt, flexible open-sided stretch tent or a combination of all. Contact us today to discuss our marquees, tents and yurts.
