Why book a marquee for your wedding reception instead of a hotel??

Marquees are the perfect space for that DIY dream wedding!

Having a marquee for your wedding reception can mean more freedom to do exactly what you want to do. A marquee really is a blank canvas on which to apply your style rather than putting up with fixed decor at a venue!  If you’re lucky enough to have space for a marquee at home or have found a suitable location, you can have a much more memorable day relaxing with your friends and family knowing that you’re not being pressurized by timeframes set by a hotel.

A huge positive for having a marquee reception is that you can select a caterer of your choice! There are so many amazing options out there, all providing top notch locally sourced food! We work with lots of great local caterers who are well used to working in marquees. Just ask for our recommendations, we are very happy to help.


If you’re worried about the costs involved in holding a marquee reception, don’t! Having a marquee doesn’t have to be expensive, with careful planning and detailed discussions we can work to all budgets. A lovely idea for saving money would be to ask your guests to bring along a dessert or help make decorations for the inside of the marquee.


If you are concerned that planning every detail would be a pain, at County Marquees we offer an event planning service to take the stress out of your hands. We provide a bespoke service, from wedding day on site assistance through to full wedding planning. We can also help in locating your dream venue to have a marquee.


So what are you waiting for, get in touch now and speak to one of our lovely event managers who really will put your mind at rest and begin the exciting process of planning your marquee wedding!
