You’ve said ‘yes’ and started thinking about your big day – with numerous options available, one of the first decisions you’ll make is whether to go with a more traditional wedding or whether to choose a marquee. Here are some reasons you should consider the marquee option:
You can tailor a marquee to suit your day
With hundreds of different styles of marquee to choose from, you can design your own venue to best suit your wedding size, make the most of your location, and create a unique atmosphere for your special day. Unlike brick and mortar venues that often have fixed layouts, marquees enable you to choose from long, square, or L-shaped frames to best fit your space and essentially ‘build your own’ wedding. The Point can recommend some excellent local marquee companies to help you plan your big day.
You can take advantage of your surroundings
When you have a fantastic view from your venue, you want to be able to see it all day – a marquee offers the perfect opportunity to keep your guests warm and dry while still being right in the middle of your natural surroundings. The Green at The Point offers spectacular views in an idyllic setting – visit our website to find out more about celebrating your big day with us.
You can choose your own caterer
Whereas many venues restrict catering options to the in-house kitchen, choosing a marquee wedding means you also get to choose your own caterer – whether you want your guests to enjoy haute cuisine or Cornish pasties, the options are unlimited. We work with some fabulous companies here at The Point and can recommend caterers and florists with many years’ experience.
You can invite as many (or as few) guests as you want
Marquees come in all shapes and sizes, so you can choose the structure that will best fit your wedding party. Should you be planning a small wedding of up to 36 people, it is possible to rent our 7 contemporary apartments Hilda Close and place a small marquee on the lawn in front of the apartments. With spacious living areas for the bridal party to get ready in and beds that can be arranged in doubles or singles to best fit your group, it’s the perfect venue for a smaller wedding.
You can avoid late-night transportation issues
With a wide variety of properties ranging from 2-bed to 5-bed, including several pet-friendly options, The Point can accommodate most wedding parties, big or small. This makes it easier for guests who are travelling long distances and avoids the inconvenience of arranging late-night transportation. Your can find more information about our highly-recommended accommodation here.
