With all of the work that goes into arranging your wedding, it’s no wonder that some things end up being overlooked; after all, you have to arrange absolutely everything: the dress, the venue, the catering and so on. With this guide, ‘dance floor hire and other things you need for your wedding marquee’, you can make sure that you have everything you need for your big day. You don’t want to get to the big day and realise you’ve missed something out that you should of thought of, especially something relating to your reception venue. Read on to find out everything that you really need for your wedding marquee, including dance floor hire.

Dancefloor Hire


Starting with the one that we’ve mentioned already, dance floor hire is crucial for the perfect wedding reception.

On a day full of celebration such as your wedding day, having a dance floor is an excellent way for everyone to celebrate together. In fact, without a dance floor, where are you going to have your first dance?

Without a dance floor, your wedding isn’t complete. Especially when your reception is inside a marquee, there are no reasons why you shouldn’t be able to hire a dance floor for your day.

Toilet facilities


This is often the most overlooked essential, despite the fact that it really is crucial for your day.

If you are hosting your reception inside a marquee and it isn’t close to any other physical location, you need to ensure that you have the necessary facilities for people to use the toilet. If you don’t have these facilities, people will end up having to leave your wedding when they need to go! This is obviously best avoided by just hiring the required facilities.



A wedding day is a long day, and without eating, the day can end up feeling even longer than it already is; that’s why you need to make sure that you have a caterer for your wedding marquee.

Although hiring a caterer might seem like a significant expense that you could avoid by giving a family member the job, having a professional to cater for your is advantageous for numerous reasons. One of the main reasons is that, if anything happened to go wrong, you would blame your family member or friend forever if they catered for you. If you hire a professional, not only should something not go wrong, but you wouldn’t have a family member or friend to blame if something did happen.

Seating and tables


Although this might seem like an unrealistic oversight, you would be surprised how many people have forgotten to hire the appropriate seating and tables for their wedding marquee.

On a day that lasts as long as a wedding, it’s obviously important for you to make sure that all of your guests have somewhere to sit and enjoy the meal that you have arranged for everybody. If there are no seats and no tables, your wedding would certainly be off to a disastrous start.

Thankfully, seating and tables isn’t something that many people will forget to hire for their wedding marquee. That doesn’t mean we haven’t seen people forget about them before, however!


Here, we’re recapping what you absolutely must have on your big day, so that your party can run as smoothly as possible:

  • Dance floor: You need to make sure that you have a dance floor for your wedding. How else are people going to lose themselves in the music?!
