Low Cost ideas For Planning The Ultimate Wedding

With the world becoming more mobile as the years go by, the DIY marquee wedding scene is expanding. People are opting to host their wedding reception in the garden at home, or at unique locations close to their heart. Meanwhile country estates and farms are becoming increasingly prone to renting out their land for large celebratory occasions and custom weddings. Glamorous settings can be made with flowers, lanterns and balloon decorations, pretty table arrangements, the right lighting and - of course - a Gala Tent Wedding Marquee.

There are four different types of wedding packs available from Gala Tent regarding the amount of people that will be attending your wedding, however even these are flexible and we are happy to swap things around to cater to your special requests. If the issue of the price of your wedding and your honeymoon is a concern, you have no need to worry with the offer of finance from 12 months, so you can pay for the marquee monthly with no extra credit added on top. If you have no use for the marquee after your wedding, there are multiple options for you, such as hiring this out to your friends or family for their events, using it for future events such as birthdays, or even selling the marquee on to get your money back.

Marquees aren’t only to be used for your wedding, and you could even hold your own engagement party for friends and family to ensure all guests can attend your house, instead of at some pub or venue in a location that guests are unfamiliar with. And let’s not forget the all-important Hen Party and Stag Party, which are perfect to be held in a marquee, simply add a mini bar and book some live entertainment, or plug your MP3 in to create a night to remember

Wedding Marquees are the perfect solution if you want to hold your reception at home, or if your chosen hotel or restaurant has limited indoor space. Gala Wedding Marquees come in various sizes. The Gala Tent Marquees come in a large variety of sizes, making them particularly popular with marquee hirers because you can size it to meet your exact needs, and it can be erected on soft or hard ground.


Decide the theme/style of your wedding and any special requirements. Draw up your guest list(s) so you know the numbers to accommodate. Have a meal made by your chosen caterer way before you book them for the wedding to check the food and standard of service. Do you want exclusive use of the venue? There's nothing worse than bumping in to another bride on your special day! Book your decorators, caterers and live entertainment as soon as possible; weddings are booked months - even years - in advance! If a Wedding Marquee is required, get it ordered early to make sure it's one less thing to worry about. Confirm all the details of your plans in writing with contractors and get receipts for deposits. Inform the caterers on final catering numbers a month before the event.

This is your special day – don't settle for substandard! Gala Tent hope that everything goes as planned and wish you the all the best for a long and happy life together.
