Why Hire A Marquee? Three Top Benefits

Posted on June 28th, 2011 by admin-marquees-dw  |  Comments Off on Why Hire A Marquee? Three Top Benefits

With freak weather currently crossing the UK, why hire a marquee I hear you say?

Well, marquees are no longer the cold ‘circus’ type structure that once was.

It’s important to realise how popular marquees are. For a variety of occasions, it is the perfect way to celebrate in style.

So we thought we would write three top benefits of hiring a marquee in the UK that we haven’t covered yet:

1. You get to choose your perfect location

This way, you select where to pitch the marquee, and are not limited to certain venues. Provided the venue, lawn or farmers field you choose has the relevant permissions (or they can be sought) then your choices are not restricted.

2. You get to plan and host your event, hassle-free

Imagine all the planning – flowers, decorations, lighting, sound, catering, furniture. There are times when a good events company can really take the hassle out of organising, so that you can concentrate on your guests.

3. It’s a flexible solution – have as many or as few guests as you choose to

Marquees come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and can therefore be tailored to suit the amount of guests you want to invite. No more being squeezed in or, even worse – finding that your guests only half fill the venue. That would make your event memorable for all the wrong reasons!

So, don’t limit your options and look at the options to hire a fantastic location, construct it at your chosen venue, and house your guests perfectly!

The popularity of becoming a wedded couple at home is rising.

It  takes a well organised person to arrange everything in order to help the day or weekend go smoothly.


  • Garden Drainage – ensuring the area is not waterlogged
  • Landscaping & Gardening – maintaining a neat tidy look
  • Upkeep of the home – some rooms may serve as a rest area for guests


Garden Drainage
Keeping an exemplary garden area is key. Elegant surroundings enhance the visual appeal of the overall scene, and add real atmosphere.

We may have brilliant blue skies now, how long that will last is anyones guess, so exceedingly good planning is essential. If you are aware that your garden is commonly waterlogged, arrange garden drainage services to arrive a day or two before the marquee is erected. This can always be cancelled, however do ensure you check the cost of cancellation before booking.

Gardening & Landscaping
Ask your gardener if they can increase the amount of hours they work at the garden, or if you do not already have one, make enquiries and seek a reliable gardener that can maintain the lawn, trees and shrubs – perhaps they may need to creating a planting plan based around the marquee.

Preparing Your Home
You may wish to redecorate, or create a temporary bedroom or dressing area from an unused office or sitting room space. Alternatively, a simple freshen up can help create restful areas where guests can reside and the bride can change on the morning of the wedding day.

Event Management
Event Management companies and individuals may assist you with organisation pre-wedding, to alleviate the pressure on you, often the cost is similar to what it may have been anyway. This is largely due to a Management company having good contacts, and they will be happy to negotiate lower prices.
