Is the recession making brides more creative?
Posted on 25/01/2011
As the recession has hit over the past two years White Tent Events has actually seen a rise in the number of marquees being hiring. However customers have cut back on the amount of ‘luxury’ items they are hiring, opting instead to do their own decorations and frills.
We believe one of the huge advantages of hiring a wedding marquee is that every marquee is completely bespoke. At many wedding venues such as hotels and country houses, there are many restrictions on timings, decorations, furniture and even the different suppliers you are allowed to use. If you hire a marquee for your wedding in your own garden, you have complete control on everything from the layout and type of furniture you use, to the food and catering.
This also presents a great opportunity to save money in these tough economic times. Recently we have seen brides use their own material to decorate the inside of their marquee, use fairy lights they already own to light up the marquees, and even do their own catering, All of which would not be possible at many venues.
If customers wish to style their own marquee, we are more than happy to discuss with them- how to go about doing this and even advice on what we have seen in the past and what has worked well.
