Many people nowadays are opting for a marquee wedding, and if you’re planning your big day, it’s very possible you might be wondering why. Versus traditional venues, there are many reasons why marquee weddings are a superior option.
Party and event marquee tent hire allows you to choose your own wedding venue anywhere in Brisbane, with your own design scheme, wherever you like AND saves you money. Still not convinced? Here are our 8 top reasons to go with a marquee wedding, for those still on the fence.
Choose Your Own Location
Finding a venue can be a real pain – we’ve all heard stories of couples visiting endless locations only to settle on something sub-par out of nothing more than fatigue. The beauty of marquee hire is that it opens up so many possibilities.
If you have access to land, or you can find a local scenic spot you can get permission for perhaps, then you’re good to go. Wedding marquee hire allows you to marry in the perfect setting, without constraints, because marquee tents can be set up anywhere.
Create Your Own Venue
Whether you’re having an intimate wedding or a huge blowout, you want it to look great and to represent you as a couple. Another fantastic thing about wedding marquees is that they come as a blank canvas – so you can build whatever wedding theme you like.
No need to be constrained by the fixtures and fittings in the venue you’ve hired – just your dream wedding, exactly as you imagined it.
Save Money And Work To Your Budget
Compared to hiring a traditional venue, choosing a marquee wedding not only saves you money but allows you the flexibility to work exactly for your budget. If you have dropouts or late additions, you can simply extend or diminish the size of the marquee, meaning you have a lot more flexibility.
Wedding venues are overpriced and often provide their own bars and food. Hire a marquee, and you can minimise the costs involved. Buy your own alcohol, choose your own caterer, and avoid fixed prices and exorbitant rates.
Have As Much (Or As Little) Space As You Like
As I said above, traditional wedding venues tend to be large, and expensive. If you’re planning a more intimate wedding, you have no need for all that extra room, so why pay for it? Wedding marquee hire allows you to build a wedding in your own backyard if you wish.
If you’re hiring a marquee for a big do, however, there are no limits on marquee tent size – which means bars, a dance floor, a stage … and, you can loosen the belts on the guest list, and no need to set occupancy limits.
Bring The Outdoors Indoors
If you want to enjoy the country’s many and varied landscapes, a marquee allows you to bring the outdoors indoors. You’ll be lucky to find an (affordable) wedding venue that can compete with the beauty of the great outdoors. Wedding marquees are easy to transport and erect, and can give a 360 degree view of your surroundings.
Marquee tent hire is a great option for outdoor weddings and winter weddings. Perfect to keep out of the weather for a winter wedding. In hotter weather they provide oodles of shade, and allow cool air to circulate, so you and your guests can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors in comfort.
Party As Long As You Like
Many traditional venues will have limits on how long you can party, which means you might need to wrap up early. If you’re lucky enough to find a spot with no neighbours nearby, a marquee wedding allows you to party as long as you like. Pro tip: Invite the neighbours and you can party without having to worry about noise considerations!
Break From Tradition
If you want to do something a little unusual for your big day, you might be put off by most of the options available. Most venues, understandably, cater for the more conventional or double as spaces for corporate events.
A marquee, however, allows you to create your own space – the perfect solution for those with a big imagination! A wedding marquee is the ultimate blank canvas, so you can go wild. Need help deciding what size and type of marquee to get? See our last post!

Marquees offer the flexibility to design your perfect day, without being limited by the existing infrastructure of a traditional venue. Invite as many, or as few, guests as you like. But best of all, you can create a space fitting the most magical day of your life, and you open up a host of possible locations you’d otherwise miss out on.
