Recent statistics show that Christmas/ New Year period is the most popular time for people to get engaged, far eclipsing Valentine's Day.
So if you are one of those newly engaged couples, congratulations - what a Christmas present!
Event Marquees has done thousands of weddings, of all shapes and sizes. So from us to the newly engaged couple, here are three completely different ideas to get you started; they would be roughly the same budget - but would give you three distinctly different weddings.
Want your wedding to be more like a party? Or perhaps you want to invite a lot of people? Consider this set-up.
Grab a one of our larger marquees, set up with 3 different zones. Have one quarter with our rounded bar and sleek ottoman lounge set-up. This would work be perfect for a bespoke arrival cocktail with a dedicated barman. Then to serve drinks through the night. The lounge area will be appreciated for those tired dancing feet.
Set up another quarter with some bar tables and chairs, so your guests have somewhere to rest their drink while they feast on the roving finger food. To make your budget go further, you could instead utilise a buffet dinner, or you could even do a spit roast if things get really tight.
The last half of the marquee set up is for dancefloor, with full AV, lights and DJ section and space for live music if you want.
Perfect for those who would prefer to spend more of their budget on exquisite food and perhaps matching wines. And who want to keep their guest list small.
This would entail one of our smaller marquees, with clear roof and sides - romantic! Run a long rectangular table running down the middle, and add in your preferred styling such as chandeliers, and crisp white lined and quality stemware.
Consider adding in live acoustic music in one corner, with a few couches for people to lounge after dinner.
A lot of couples still prefer the traditional wedding layout, with round tables and a sit down dinner. And why not it’s a classic! You can consider either a more modern clear roof with fairy lights, or the traditional silk lining, available in white or striking black.
Our trendy and traditional package, adds in modern white chairs, romantic lanterns, and white linen. From here you can style it to your heart’s desire, here are some theming suggestions.
We can tailor make your wedding to whatever style or theme you desire.
We bet your mind is whirlwind of ideas - if you need any help getting these into a plan, get in touch!
