How To Pick The Right Marquee For Your Big Event

October 16th, 2014

When hiring a marquee it is important to consider a number of things, not just the type of event. At Best Intent Marquees we offer marquee hire for all sort of events such as parties, weddings and corporate events, and our specialist service can tailor your marquee to your demands.



Type of event

Whatever the reason for your event, there will be specific demands that come along with it. Corporate marquees will benefit from professional interiors, whilst weddings and parties can be anything from formal or traditional to more relaxed and cosy. If you want certain features within your marquee consider where they will fit. We can help set up stages, bars or food tables, and dancefloors, as well as any number of tables and chairs necessary.


Weather and time of year

Don’t be overly optimistic with weather situations. The British weather is forever unpredictable so prepare your marquee for the time of year. Where necessary, heaters can be easily installed. Likewise appropriate flooring and ventilation should be planned for. Avoid soggy, cold or muddy guests by thinking ahead. For tips on marquee weddings in each season, have a read of our previous blog.



Location and space

Certain locations may pose issues with marquee hire. Finding the right venue for you is essential but so is having enough room to install and fit the tent. If you are thinking of keeping your event in your own garden realistically consider whether there is enough room and allow for external space around the marquee.


The backdrop of a location may determine the style of marquee you have too. If you are setting up by a manor house, a more luxurious marquee may be more appropriate, but on the grounds of a castle or antique home, something more traditional will better suit. For garden marquee events, think simple and fun.



Number of guests

The last thing you want is to find that your marquee is too small to fit the number of guests invited. Before you look into hiring a marquee have a clear idea of a figure. This will help marquee hire companies judge the best way to structure tables and seating plans. If you have your own ideas of how you want the interior to look, talk through your plans thoroughly with the company. Our specialists are able to recreate the image of your ideal marquee event.
