If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.
It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
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.
How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
It’s not a problem.
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.
How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This will vary depending on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.
We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.
During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.
Do I need matting?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
For this reason and because it can make it much easier to wear high heels, we generally advise matting for weddings.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.
Should I cut the grass?
You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.
We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.
What is included in the initial quote?
Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.
Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.
When is site meeting necessary?
We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.
The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
They do not need to be lined.
If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.
What about electricity?
You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.
A generator may be required as backup.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
