Wedding Marquee Hire
Marquees can really bring your wedding to life and can convert a modest-sized reception area into a luxurious, spacious arena.
There are also many benefits of choosing wedding marquees over traditional wedding venues such as churches and the functions rooms of hotels. For example if you hold your wedding in a marquee you can completely personalise it around your own theme by using floral arrangements, guest seating, mood lighting, ambient background music and even the location of staging and live band areas.
Marquee hire companies often provide interior decor and some provide a selection of exterior decor to enhance the area around your wedding tent. For example some tent hire companies offer temporary wedding related props and picket fencing to add the touch of class to the entrance to your wedding.
Of course, wedding marquee hire can really eat into your budget so it’s something you’ll have to weigh up.
In years gone by, it would be slightly frustrating for a couple to be showered with gifts that they’re not keen on, or even duplicate presents, and so wedding gift lists are now a popular method of ensuring the happy couple get what they want to set them on the road to married life. This can be the perfect scenario for everyone involved, as guests know they’re not making a risky purchase.
Guests understand when couples get married it's because they love each other - not because they're looking for wedding gifts! If you decide to have a gift list you can choose your wording carefully to ensure that your guests don't feel obliged to buy a gift. For example, a popular phrase to use is "It's your presence, not your present that we want!"
Even if you don't want your guests to buy gifts for you, you'll find that most people still want to give a gift as they feel it's the right thing to do - and they want to mark the occasion with a present. Without a gift list to guide your guests you could find yourselves inundated with gifts which you don't really want.
