There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.

This will vary depending on size.

Usually, the marquee is set up between one and three days before the event it’s needed for and is taken down a day after the event.

This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.
