The Bisley Hire Blog

Whilst flicking through the pages of any wedding magazine, you will be confronted with countless wedding trends, themes and ideas to help you create your dream day. We’ve chosen a few of our favourite 2018 trends to give you some inspiration as you plan your perfect event! 

Quintessentially British

A marquee wedding is the epitome of a British summertime celebration; imagine a stunning tent in an intimate garden setting, surrounded by beautiful British countryside. Locally grown British flowers, rustic furniture, lengths of bunting strung from the ceiling, and an afternoon tea served from vintage crockery all add to the theme.

Translucent Tents

Following Pippa Middleton’s stunning glass wedding marquee, translucent tents have grown in popularity. Modern, architectural, and clean design with foliage hanging from the ceiling and adorning the tables, creates a space that seamlessly connects your wedding with the outdoors. A clear marquee is a sure way to create a true wow factor for your wedding! It’s worth bearing in mind that completely clear marquees can get warm, so in the summer months we generally recommend keeping clear roofs to one area of your marquee.

Weekend long weddings

Your wedding takes month of planning, preparation, and hard work, so whilst you’re at it, why not make the most of having all your friends and family together by extending the celebrations for the whole weekend! The joy of having a marquee wedding is that it’s yours for the weekend, not just the day, so whether you’re planning a weekend-long mini-festival, or fancy having an informal party on the second day, there’s no restrictions! Do bear in mind that you may need a larger toilet unit if you’re hosting a second event, you can discuss this with your Bisley event manager.
