Planning for Weddings
We have a specialist team on hand ready to help plan your special day. With 10 years experience they will be happy to answer any questions or offer guidance for your individual needs. The Marquee Company offers the following weddings services:
Carefully planning the layout of a marquee is particularly important for weddings when the impression on guests needs to be absolutely right. Things you need to consider include: setting aside space for a reception area, buffet tables, position of the Bride and Groom, the Cake Table, access for catering staff and location of party equipment such as a dance floor.
Planning bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs presents special challenges.
Your approach will depend on the sort of event you are planning — only for children or for a mixed age-group.
If only children are invited, then marquee aesthetics are less of a worry — though children do rise to the occasion of a well-dressed event. Bold or glitzy effects work better with youngsters than subtle decoration.
If a mixed age range is invited, very formal decoration is best avoided, as is an overly flowery look for a bar mitzvah.
Our marquees are white and we provide ivory-coloured linings. This is an ideal canvas for any decorative style. In addition, our aluminium framed marquees make it very easy to attach items to the walls or ceilings. Decorative options include:
Traditional — swags, flowers, balloons, banners etc
Themed backdrops eg sports events, beaches etc
Combined with lighting effects, a vast range of styles are possible. We are happy to implement your chosen look, or to suggest ideas.
With so many young guests, extras to keep them entertained and keep the party going may be advisable. These are not a bad idea even for a mixed age range — excited children can help adults let their hair down too! Here are some ideas:
- Candy floss, popcorn machines
- Dancing extras: such as a selection of party novelties for dancing
- Dancing competitions
- Entertainers: caricature artist, magicians etc
- Personalised T-shirt printing
