  1. Check your site for any obstructions these could include any overhead cables or underground pipes.
  2. Consider the space you require do you need a reception area separate from your dance floor a larger reception space can be useful for getting in out of the rain and also can be doubled up as a bar areacounty_marquee034
  3. Where does the sunset in your garden? The marquee is best positioned with windows facing the sun letting all that wonderful light into the marquee.
  4. Have you considered portable toilets? They can be a good idea positioned close to the marquee keeping your guests out of the house and not far for guests to walk should it rain!county_marquee016
