Marquees - a handy guide.

It's hard to know what type of marquee to choose when you need one to make your event work, while cost is important not all marquees work at certain locations. If you are looking at our Backyard Wedding Package marquees are a great add on to ensure you can have the guests you want, no matter the weather.


Here is our guide to how to choose the perfect marquee.


Electrons

These are your more traditional looking peg and pole marquees that can give your event and amazing look. They need to be put up on a grass area (so the pegs have something to drive into) and are not strong enough to handle very exposed places.

The smaller sizes (anything in the 9m series) can be erected yourself but the larger sizes require a team of people to do so.

They have different side options that can be added:

  • Solid wall

  • Panorama clear

  • French window walls

  • No walls

The three series of sizes easily sourced locally are the 6m, 9m and the 12m:

  • The 6m has three standard length options: 6m x 6m, 9m or 12m

  • The 9m has three standard length options: 9m x 9m, 15m or 21m

  • The 12ms require specalists to erect and come in four sizes: 12m x 12m, 18m, 24m or 30m

Clipframes

This marquee can be put up on sealed and unsealed surfaces, they are solid frame and have many different side options that can be added:

  • Solid wall

  • Panorama clear

  • French window walls

They are big and hard to put up so do require a specalised team to erect and dismantle which does make them a more expensive choice.

The two series of sizes easily sourced locally are the 6m and the 10m:

  • The 6m has five standard length options: 6m x 6m, 9m, 12m or 15m

  • The 10m has four standard length options: 10m x 10m, 15m, 20m or 25m.

Stretch Marquees


Stretch Marquees (also known as Bedouin or free form tents) are a modern solution that works across all surfaces, you don't need a flat surface to get these to work. They work on flat, rolling, steep and can be adjusted to suit surrounds which makes them perfect for all weather solutions.

Stretch marquees can be erected as self-standing structures or off existing structures. They can be rigged with all sides up, 3 sides up, 2 sides up or all sides down, they can be connected to buildings, trees or fences if you need them over a sealed surface.

Solid side panels can be added and the top can be 'stretched' down to created sides for exposed areas.

Different side options that can be added:

  • Solid wall

  • Panorama clear

  • Opaque

We can source the following locally - they are modular so can be fitted together to create larger marquees.

  • 12m x 15m

  • 11.5m x 8.5m

  • 10m x 12m

  • 8.5m x 8.5m
