How to Plan a Summer Marquee Wedding

Planning a Summer wedding is one of the most popular and exciting times of any couples lives, and having a marquee for your fairy tale wedding ceremony enables you to create an intimate space for you and your wedding party, whilst enjoying all that nature has to offer. Warwickshire is home to some of the most stunning grounds and gardens, making it the perfect backdrop for your dream summer wedding. If you and your future husband or wife have always dreamed of having a marquee wedding, then Nailcote Hall's team of expert wedding planners are here to turn your dreams into reality. Follow these simple tips and you'll be sure to have a fairy tale summer wedding.

Decide your budget

First things first, you and your partner need to decide on a wedding budget and allocate chunks of money to each part of your wedding. From the venue to the dress and entertainment, you should do a little research on how much each part costs and set your budget accordingly. Remember to add a margin just in case of an emergency.

Set your wedding date

Every experienced wedding planner knows that one of the first things you do when planning a wedding is to pick a date that works for you. Whether you're going for early June or late September wedding, you need to find a date that works for you and your guests.

Choose your marquee and wedding venue wisely

Choosing the right marquee and garden is incredibly important. You need
to make sure that the marquee you choose fits all of your guests and can
be decorated to suit your wedding theme. If you want a garden marquee
wedding, then you and your beau should check the grounds for yourself to
get a feel for those picturesque wedding photos. If you're visiting the
venue in question during the winter months, then ask the venue in
question to see photos of previous marquee weddings they've held. You
also need to confirm whether the wedding venue in question will provide a
bar, entertainment and dance floor. At Nailcote Hall
we have a beautiful marquee that will fit up to 320 guests, and our
wedding package includes a bar, entertainment, catering and a dance
floor.

Book your wedding venue as soon as possible

Summer is the most popular time of the year for couples to walk down the aisle, and it is easy to see why. June to September presents you longer days and lighter nights, ensuring that there are plenty of picture perfect opportunities. Alongside this, you'll be blessed with warm sun and soft summer breezes. However, because Summer is the most popular time of the year for the betrothed to tie the knot, wedding venues get booked up months in advance. Once you've sent out your save-the-dates, arranged a budget and have a rough head count, and have found the perfect wedding venue, it is time to book it and secure it for that date!
