If you’re about to plan a marquee wedding, then today’s wedding blog will be the perfect read for you!
It’s no secret that our team of wedding planners adore planning marquee weddings! Covering London & the East of England, including Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge & Essex, our team of professional wedding planners work with busy couples to create unique, authentic marquee weddings which are full of personality, fun and love!
Whilst our wedding planners love planning marquee weddings, we’re always very transparent with our wedding planning clients before we begin the marquee wedding planning journey. Whilst planning and hosting a marquee wedding will generally offer a huge amount of flexibility to personalise your wedding day exactly to your requirements, there are many challenges to navigate. Here are a couple of the key pointers you need to know before you begin planning a marquee wedding.
Whilst many couples decide to hire a wedding planner to ensure their marquee wedding planning journey is a breeze, lots of couples planning a marquee wedding are happy to handle the workload themselves.
Whilst planning a marquee wedding is lots of fun, there is so much more work involved in creating a large wedding event on this scale. As you are essentially building your wedding from scratch, you’ll need to consider every single element of the wedding, even the boring and unexciting things like loos and security! For many time-pressured couples, opting for a package wedding in a more traditional wedding venue will certainly mean less stress!
As well as finding a wedding venue to host the marquee wedding, you’ll need to source a wide range of wedding suppliers who can offer not only the standard wedding elements (catering and photography, for example) but also those who have a range of specialist wedding services too – generators, toilets, outdoor lighting, security etc – the list goes on!
Picture the scene, everything on your wedding day is running perfectly to plan, the first dance begins and the power goes out! Disaster, right? With a marquee wedding, you are going to need to learn and learn quickly – it’s probably quite obvious that you’ll need a generator to power the wedding site, but do you know what power your caterers will use, for example?
Then start adding lighting, sound for your DJ and band, electricity for your toilets etc and the small generator that sounded like such a bargain is no longer sufficient to power your wedding! Again, hiring a specialist marquee wedding planner will take this worry away and ensure all of the correct facilities are in place for you to have the perfect wedding.
