If you’re thinking about a wedding marquee for your special day then there are a few things to consider:
What Type of Wedding Marquee?
Jenkinsons Caterers have had the privilege of catering in a number of wedding marquees during our 50 year history and we’ve seen quite a few different takes on the wedding marquee; everything from the classic white wedding marquee to relaxed rustic weddings hosted in magnificent Nordic tipis.
There are a huge range of wedding marquees available to hire in all shapes and sizes, think about the kind of wedding day you’d like and chose a marquee to fit.
Unlike a wedding venue which comes kitted out with everything you might need on your big day, a wedding marquee is a truly blank canvas. You’ll need to give some thought to the practicalities; access to the site, electricity supply, mains water supply, lighting, parking, guest toilets etc.
We’ve had loads of experience in working alongside wedding marquee suppliers to ensure that they think about the catering requirements and practicalities when looking at your chosen site. Don’t hesitate to get us involved in the discussions as soon as you start planning your marquee wedding.
Dressing your Wedding Marquee
Lighting is perhaps the single most important element of dressing your wedding marquee. You want subtle, soft, flattering lighting. As guests start to enjoy their wedding breakfast with their eye before they’ve even tasted a bit it’s great if the lighting lets people see what they’re eating then dims to encourage some wild dancing later on.
Beyond lighting you’ll need to consider table centrepieces and whether a starlit roof on the wedding marquee is appealing. Don’t forget about the flooring too, a hard-standing dancefloor is often a very good idea.
