If you've already secured a private garden for your alfresco wedding, having the right equipment will go a long way toward ensuring the success of the event. 

Hiring a marquee for your big day will ensure your guests have some sort of protection from the elements. But not all marquees are created equal. They come in many varieties to meet the needs of different people and the specific events they're planning.

Here are a few key things to consider when choosing a marquee for your garden wedding.

Marquee size

Marquee sizes can vary greatly to meet the needs of different users. The size of the marquee you will require for your wedding event depends on a variety of factors, but the biggest factor is the amount of space available at your venue. Your marquee can only be as big as your space can accommodate.

If space isn't a concern, other factors that can influence your choice of marquee size include the size of your guest list and the preferred seating arrangements.

Weather conditions

Summer is the best time of the year for holding a garden wedding, but your guests may need more than just protection from the direct sunlight and hot temperatures outside. Summer rain, wind or other unfavourable weather conditions all have the potential to ruin your big day, and you certainly don't want that to happen.

That said, you might want to consider choosing a marquee that can be used in all sorts of weather, no matter the time of year when you're holding your outdoor wedding.

If you don't want to take any chances with the weather, consider hiring marquees whose walls can be opened out to allow for natural ventilation and closed to keep out undesirable weather elements such as driving rain and strong wind.

Marquee style

Modern marquees are more than just a blank canvas; they are essential pieces of party equipment that can be used to enhance the style of almost any event, including garden weddings.

Today's marquees are available in an array of styles to ensure you can find something that will enhance the natural aesthetic of your wedding venue while matching the theme of your wedding party.
