When you’re planning your wedding, one of the things you have to think about is how you’re going to handle the weather.

If you’re getting married outdoors, you need to make sure that you have a plan in case it rains or snows. One option is to use a marquee.

Marquees can provide shelter from the weather, and they can also add a touch of elegance to your wedding day. Here are some tips for using marquees at your wedding.

Make Sure That Your Marquee is Waterproof

One of the worst things that can happen to you on your wedding day is for it to rain while the marquee is up.

That means your guests will be crammed inside, and they won’t get the chance to enjoy the great outdoors. But there are marquee options out there, like our range of waterproof marquee wedding tents, that can keep everyone dry.

They have a waterproof roof and sides with zips, so you can attach or remove them as necessary.

Provide Extra Shelter With Marquee Covers

If you’re having a seated meal, you might want to provide marquee covers for your guests who need them, like these, that will keep them dry and warm.

These marquee covers come with holes so guests can still see and be seen, and you can also put a marquee floor under them if the ground is wet.

Will my Guests get Cold in a Marquee?

The marquee is designed to be waterproof, which means that guests won’t get wet unless it’s tipping down with rain or there are really big gusts of wind.

If this happens, your marquee company will provide you with sides so that the marquee can still be used even in terrible weather conditions. The sides are attached and can be removed as needed.

It’s always best to check with your marquee company what they recommend for inclement weather. They can tell you what is appropriate.

Will my Marquee get Blown Away?

It’s unlikely that your marquee could be blown away unless there are very high winds; just think about the size of the marquee you would need to generate enough force to uproot it.

However, should this happen, your marquee company will have other options for you, such as a pole or frame marquee.

What Will I Do if it Rains on my Marquee?

You can either sit and watch the rain run down the marquee walls and enjoy your drinks and food within sight of the fabulous weather, or you can put down your sides, which is what happens when people go camping and provide privacy from the wet conditions outside.

Will my Marquee Become a Swimming Pool?

There’s no obligation to remove anything from your marquee even if it starts raining because everything will be perfectly safe, dry, and clean at all times. Your marquee company will always follow health and safety guidelines, so you can rest assured that everything is done the right way and for your protection.


The marquee is a great choice for weddings, corporate events, or any other occasion where you need some extra space.

However, if your marquee isn’t properly set up and taken care of, it can turn into an outdoor nightmare. We recommend that you make sure the marquee is waterproof (or at least water-resistant) so no one gets wet on their special day.

You may also want to attach the walls to give more privacy as well as provide shelter with coverings like gazebos or marquees in case of bad weather conditions such as rain or windy days, which may cause damage to your tent. Of course, many people worry about how they will keep warm during the winter months but don’t fear because we have just the solution.

In the winter, marquee heaters will provide extra protection from the cold and can help make your marquee a cosy place to be all year round. If you have any further queries or concerns about what would best suit your marquee needs, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you.
