5 Tips for a white marquee wedding:

  1. Holding a marquee wedding in a place like a park or botanical garden – make sure you check whether you need council permission and a permit fee. You must leave the space as you found it i.e. no rubbish left, and remember not to push nails into anything like permanent structures. There may also be a restriction on the numbers you can invite. The public space you have chosen to host your wedding ceremony may fall into a ‘no alcohol zone’ also. It’s not worth ruining your big day for, so do your homework prior.
  2. Having your wedding at home or a private residence – This option can be more economical, but remember the stress of having to do it yourself. Hiring furniture, organising food or caterers, toilets, heating, parking… If you choose the DIY option you can do things your way. If you purchase your own white folding aluminium gazebo or marquee you’ll be left with a brilliant shade and shelter option for further events.
  3. Decoration – Hanging lanterns, floral arrangements or chandeliers create a dramatic effect. Whether you are wanting an event tent for the reception or a small 3x3m gazebo for the nuptials, we can help you out. Here’s some white marquee wedding inspiration.
  4. Ambience – Simple, subtle mood lighting creates an atmosphere under a marquee that will set a stunning romantic vibe. Even something as simple as strings of fairy-lights and some candles will set-the-scene. Get creative with table settings and centrepieces.
