So, what happens if you’ve found your dream venue but you have just discovered that it won’t accommodate the number of guests you had planned to invite? The good news is that there is no need to despair!

Firstly, look at your guest numbers – have you included everyone and their dog? Remember wedding costs can run away with you if you’re not careful, so maybe it’s best to sit down together and look at your wedding numbers carefully.

However, if you’re happy with the number of people you’ll be inviting to both the day and evening celebrations, and you’ve fallen in love with the venue, have you considered a marquee?

Speak to your venue and ask if they’ve had weddings previously where they hired a marquee in order to accommodate numbers. If so, find out which suppliers they would recommend you contacting.

It’s worth noting here that you need to speak to a couple of different marquee hire companies to ensure you obtain the right costs for the marquee you need. The majority of wedding marquee companies also hold an open event where they showcase their wedding marquee, and this also gives you the chance to speak directly to them, where they’ll be able to guide you through everything involved in choosing your marquee.

Remember, you need to ensure the cost you’re quoted from the marquee company includes the setup, take down, structure, additional panels (for example clear roof over the dance floor), interior items (such as lighting, doors, chairs tables etc), weather precautions, carpet, outside matting – and you’ll also need to check if you need a separate caterers marquee for your wedding day too!

There are a huge variety of marquees available from trusted companies across North Wales, from tipis to stretch tents and traditional marquees to the London pagoda. Make sure you do your homework, so you know exactly what you want and check a supplier’s rating/customer review before confirming your booking.
