For all those couples who have been waiting to say “I do” – whether your big day was cancelled this year, or you’re excitedly planning for next year – marquee weddings are suddenly booming again.
Marquee weddings are expected to be huge in 2021.There are a number of reasons for this: top of the list being that a marquee gives you a flexible space in which you can still practice social distancing where necessary, and includes easy access to the outdoors; keeping proceedings well ventilated.
At Abbotts, we’re big fans of marquee weddings – they give you a huge amount of flexibility and different options for planning your big day. Here are just a few reasons a marquee wedding might be the solution to all the problems 2020 has thrown at us:
Numbers – the all important guest list. Depending on the size of your marquee, you can seat a wide range of numbers from the ceremony to the reception – from a more intimate gathering, to a well-spaced larger group.
Location – with a marquee, you can have your wedding anywhere with a bit of space! Whether it’s your parents’ garden or a farm field with an incredible view – the possibilities are endless, and you don’t have to compromise on quality with Abbotts Events Hire’s extensive catalogue of outdoor-ready products!
Decoration – marquees are a literal blank canvas; you can transform it to reflect your wedding’s style, themes, colours, flowers, everything! You can also use different types of lighting to create an incredible atmosphere… think a softly twinkling night sky, colourful paper lanterns, bold uplighting, showpiece table decorations … it’s up to you!
Layout – you can arrange the layout of your tables and elements as you choose, rather than having to work within the confines of a building. Want to include a photo booth, a dance floor, or how about one of our fully functional bar set ups? There’s nothing stopping you!
Weather – have you found an ideal outdoor location, but don’t trust the weather? A marquee gives you the best of both worlds – the opportunity to spread out, take in the views and enjoy the outdoors, but with guaranteed shelter if necessary!
Which brings us on to our final point: the logistics. Looking ahead to a return to normal in 2021, and the go-ahead of your big day, we can provide you with everything you need – tables, chairs, kitchen, toilets, fridges – everything except the marquee itself in one easy to manage delivery
So – you get the marquee, and we can bring everything else to you! Our past clients have said how much easier it is to make one order for all your wedding needs – and with everything all in one place, it’ll be much easier than keeping track of every individual order, just in case you need to postpone.
You’ll have your own account manager at our end who you’ll be able to liaise directly with – or, put us in touch with your wedding planner, and we’ll take care of everything! From initial inquiry to the collection for our complimentary return dirty service, we’ve got your back!
The only thing we haven’t got is time to get to everyone – we’re going to be extra busy looking after all our usual bookings for the year – PLUS all those that have been rescheduled from this year.
So – don’t delay, enquire now to see how we can help make your dream day into a reality!
