Marquees can be the perfect addition to any wedding. Whether you are holding your reception in a beautiful garden belonging to a friend or family member or simply require some extra room at your chosen venue, a wedding marquee will keep you and your guests protected from the elements and will help to create a comfortable and intimate atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Tensile fabric structures are available in myriad different sizes and styles. If you are looking for some inspiration for your own wedding marquee, here are a few examples of the latest trends.
With many individuals considering environmental issues more frequently in their daily lives, it is no surprise that eco-friendly weddings are becoming more and more popular. If the environment is particularly close to your heart, the Evening Standard has listed a number of things you can do to make sure your celebrations do not make too much of an impact. In addition to these ideas, you should look out for marquees made of a natural canvas material and try to use as little energy as possible. This may mean holding your wedding in the middle of summer to minimise the use of lighting and heating, or hiring an acoustic band to play the music.
Sometimes more is more – why have one marquee when you can have several? Think of these as little marquee villages. They can all be connected with covered paths or kept separate for a fun festival atmosphere. The best part about fabric architecture is that you can customise the layout to suit your individual requirements. With multiple marquees, each space will serve its own unique purpose and you can get really creative with the layout. The central marquee could be used for dining, with others dotted around for dancing, relaxing and drinks that you can offer your guests from portable bars such as those available from https://www.barlokbars.co.uk/portable-bars/
Don’t forget the details
If you think of a wedding marquee and immediately imagine a large white empty space, you are not alone. Decorating your marquee to suit your personal style can seem daunting; however, you would be surprised at just how much impact a few soft furnishings can make. You can stick with a soft, pastel colour scheme for a romantic aesthetic or be more playful with bold rugs, throws and table decorations in bright colours.
