Debunking the myths: Why marquee hire is perfect for your luxury wedding

As the excitement of planning your dream wedding sets in, one crucial decision looms large, the venue. Pole and canvas marquees are the gold standard when it comes to hosting a lavish and unique wedding that oozes style and luxury. But you may have heard some whispers that are sowing the seeds of doubt as to whether an affluent marquee wedding is actually a good idea.

As the wedding marquee experts, we want to put your mind at ease and by debunking the common myths surrounding wedding marquee hire, so you can rest assured you won’t regret choosing a pole and canvas marquee from Peacock and Bow for your big day.

Myth 1: Wedding marquees lack elegance

Perhaps you’re haunted by memories of a County Ball or Sixth Form Prom held in a sauna-like, plastic, mud splattered marquee with condensation dripping off the ceiling and running down the walls. These experiences would make anyone lean towards a bricks and mortar venue. But, our exquisite pole and canvas marquees exude a timeless elegance that can rival any traditional venue. 

Picture this: a pristine white canopy adorned with opulent chandeliers, dramatic floral installations cascading from the ceiling, plush furnishings, the fresh air breezing in and not a bead of sweat in sight. Marquees offer a blank canvas for creativity, allowing you to tailor every aspect of your wedding décor to reflect your personal style and vision.

Pole and canvas marquees are sleek structures that seamlessly blend sophistication with functionality. The clear roll away walls offer unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape and you can choose the perfect size for your needs, be it an intimate gathering or an epic extravaganza, the options are as unlimited as your creativity.

Myth 2: Wedding marquees are weather-dependent

One of the most persistent myths surrounding marquee weddings is their supposed vulnerability to the elements. While it's true that outdoor weddings carry some inherent risk, marquees provide a level of protection and flexibility that traditional venues cannot match.

Thanks to innovations like climate control systems, flooring solutions and top quality materials and manufacturing, pole and canvas marquees can withstand inclement weather with ease. Whether you're exchanging vows under the radiant sun or dancing the night away as gentle rain falls outside, you can rest assured that your wedding will exceed your expectations, regardless of the forecast.

When you choose Peacock and Bow, we will make sure to put our tried and tested wet weather plan in place, so no matter what the weather person says, you and your guests will be able to celebrate in comfort and style.

Myth 3: Marquee weddings are expensive

With a marquee wedding, you have the freedom to choose every aspect of your event, allowing you to tailor your budget to suit your priorities.

Our marquee hire prices include essentials such as flooring, lighting and furniture, eliminating the need for costly add-ons. Additionally, the flexibility of marquee weddings extends to catering and entertainment, enabling you to select vendors that align with your budget without compromising on quality.

Myth 4: Marquees lack amenities

Another common misconception is that marquee weddings lack the amenities and conveniences of traditional venues. Not true! Our pole and canvas marquees can be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that rival those found in luxury hotels and banquet halls.

From lavish bridal suites and service tents to house fully-equipped catering kitchens to luxurious bathrooms and premium staging suitable for the most spectacular entertainment, Peacock and Bow offer a wide range of amenities to ensure your wedding day unfolds smoothly. 

With the ability to customise every aspect of your event, you can create a bespoke wedding experience that exceeds your wildest dreams.
