Hosting an Asian Wedding Outdoors
Finding the perfect venue for an Asian Wedding can be a huge undertaking. Before you decide on anything, there are a number of factors you need to take into account. For example,
- How many guests are attending?
- How big is your budget?
- Do you want a modern or traditional setting?
These are all questions you need to ask yourself when planning your big day.
If you have a large family or plan on inviting a lot of friends, then a stately home with big grounds is a good start. Hiring a Marquee or tent is also a great option as it allows you to accommodate all of your guests in one place. Marquees make a beautiful setting for summer weddings and also give you more flexibility in terms of space.
With wedding marquee hire, you can tailor the venue to your exact requirements, from the colour of the decor to the size of the dance-floor. Why not match/contrast the marquee with your Asian Bridal wear for a stunning and spectacular effect? Lots of marquee hire services cater specifically for Asian Weddings making it easier than ever to find the perfect venue for you.
Finding a Marquee
Before hiring a marquee you’ll need to know exactly what services the hire company provide. For example, are they just going to assemble and take down the marquee? Or does it come fully equipped with a bar and bar staff etc. Most Marquee hire companies now advertise exactly how many people their tents can accommodate but it is always worth checking with them first to make sure.
If you’re planning on hosting the actual wedding ceremony outside, you may wish to hire a mandap as well as a marquee. This temporary covered structure is always a popular choice at Indian weddings. It’s made up of a solid wooden frame supported by pillars. Traditionally, a wedding mandap is decorated using:
- Kalashas (pots filed with water).
- Garlands of mango/banana leaves and coconuts.
However feel free to add your own touches and personalise it to suit your own tastes/requirements.
If you rent a marquee from a hire service specialising in Indian Weddings, it is likely they will provide furnishings as well. Furnishings are a great way to add to the overall ambience of your event and can help create a welcoming atmosphere for guests. Floor sofas and cushions can provide both comfort and an authentic feel whilst the right kind of interior lighting can also add to the occasion. Combine plenty of bold colours and ribbons with attractive seating to turn your wedding marquee into a magical, joyful place.
