Whether you’ve chosen the formal elegance of a stately home, the festival vibe of a field or you’re lucky enough to have room at home, finding exactly the right position for your marquee is a vital part of ensuring you get the best from the site and that all the logistical elements of the wedding come together in harmony.
We’re often asked, what are the things we look out for on a site visit and so here they are! For ease we’ve split them up into three different sections below.
We hope you will find this guide on where to put a wedding marquee useful in planning your wedding day but please don’t worry about having to remember everything on it! We’re more than happy to come along and take a look at your venue and to provide as much help and advice on each of the points as you might need.
Finally, here are a few extra hints and tips …
When you first check out a potential site (especially a field), walk over the ground yourself and imagine yourself and your friends on the spot, don’t rely on photographs, they can be misleading.
If in doubt take a chair and sit down as if you are at a table for a meal. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t going to work.
Visit the site early in the planning stages, if some groundwork is needed (think filling holes, levelling bumps and humps, cutting back shrubs or seeding new grass), then the longer there is for everything to settle down and grow back the better the site will be.
Ask us to come and check out the site with you, we’re happy to do it and It’s always nice to meet face to face.
If you’re stuck for ideas have a look at the venue section on our website or give us a call.
Planning a party should be a fun and interesting experience, culminating in a magical day backed up with a lifetime of happy memories.
