4 Things To Plan When Hiring A Marquee For Your Wedding

Posted on: 31 March 2020

If you're planning to have an outdoor wedding, then you probably want to hire a marquee for some undercover area. Marquees come in a raft of shapes, sizes, colours and styles, so it's important to think of what is suited to your wedding needs. Getting it right is important, so make sure you plan a marquee with these factors in mind before your wedding.

Choose A Durable Fabric For Different Types Of Weather

The weather in Australia can be unpredictable, which can sometimes make outdoor weddings seem scary. You are probably planning months in advance, which is why you simply cannot tell what the day will actually be like. But a marquee made from outdoor-friendly, durable fabric will keep the rain at bay and protect your guests from the elements. This will give you peace of mind knowing your outdoor wedding won't be washed away even if there is rain on the day.

Get A Headcount Of Your Guests Well Ahead Of Time

You'll also want to make sure you get a proper headcount of your guests so you choose the correct sized marquee for your needs. After all, you don't want to pack your guests into a tight area with a marquee that is too small or have tons of empty space because the marquee was too big. In order to get the right-sized marquee, ask your guests to RSVP to the wedding as quickly as possible.

Check With The Venue About Any Specific Requirements For Marquee Hire

Before hiring a marquee, it's important to check with your venue if they have any specific requirements. For example, some venues allow certain types and sizes of marquees only. Some may restrict the option to specific areas, while others may be more flexible with their marquee policies. Some venues may have same day installation and removal policies. It's always good to iron out these details in advance so you don't end up making expensive mistakes that could have been avoided.

Choose A Colour That Matches Your Theme

If you have a specific colour theme for your wedding, you should ideally get a marquee in a similar shade to create a feeling of continuity throughout your venue. You don't want the marquee to stick out like a sore thumb, so it's a good idea to choose something that matches your wedding theme colours.
