It’s been a year of hard lockdown. A year of very little fun and celebration. But as the seasons change and our lockdown restrictions have eased somewhat, there are still a few weeks of beautiful, balmy weather to take advantage of.
Much to our relief, we have found that there are lots of last-minute weddings being booked.
The trend for weddings now is to keep them small and intimate. To keep the numbers down to only include your ‘inner circle’- the handful of people you stayed connected to during the lock down. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It certainly keeps the costs down, to not have to include the distant family members that you haven’t seen since you were a kid.
Also, now there is an ‘opt-out due to COVID reasons’ clause as part of the invitation- people are just too scared to attend gatherings, even if all protocols are in place. Can’t say we blame them, it’s been a scary year.
Putting all of that aside, weddings should still be fun, and glorious. They should ignite the soul, and bring people together.
Gone are the days, at least for now, where planning a wedding takes the lion-share of a full year. Where family and friends travel from all over the world to attend. Now you can plan an amazing, dream wedding in a couple of weeks… if you have your wits about you, nerves of steel and a wedding coordinator that’s not scared of a challenge.
A transparent marquee wedding is a hot favourite. Whether you have 50 or 500 guests. It’s a little edgy, modern and chic. It incorporates the outside landscape into your décor. But most importantly, its open and airy and people can move inside and outside freely. It’s not a confined space, and that paramount.
Just have a look at these beautiful transparent marquees that we have built since going back to Level 1.
Coupled with great lighting, a transparent marquee wedding transforms into a fairy-tale wedding. Colour washes, chandeliers, fairy lights, candle lighting, festoon lights along the trees outside. There is nothing better. No amount of walls and windows comes close to creating the magic that happens inside a transparent marquee.
