Five Reasons To Have Your Wedding At Home

There’s something relaxing and intimate about being able to hold your wedding in your own home. This individual location enables you to put a personal stamp on your day in a unique family setting that already holds so many amazing memories. Bespoke caterers and event specialists, Dine, have put together five reasons why you should break traditions and create your own celebration in the comfort of your home…

1. Flexibility
A marquee not only offers a spectacular backdrop to your wedding celebrations, but it offers the ultimate flexibility. A marquee enables you to entertain as many or as few guests as you choose without having to worry about the capacity of your room. You can provide your own choice of refreshments, bring in the caterer of your choice and the merrymaking can carry on for as long as you like (as long as the neighbours are invited) and, of course, at the end of the celebrations you can fall straight into your own bed.

2. You don’t have to have a huge garden or a summer wedding
Depending on your guest list size, the garden doesn’t have to be huge to accommodate a marquee. They can be constructed to fit the available space perfectly. Marquees come in an array of sizes and styles, from Tipis to vintage army tents to sailcloth and traditional, enabling you to match a style to your theme. Although popular for a quintessentially British summer wedding, with the right planning – flooring and heating options are crucial factors to consider – a reception under canvas can be a perfect venue whatever the time of year.

3. The party can continue all weekend
The beauty of a reception at home is that there are no time restrictions. When at home, you can stretch the celebrations out by having pre-wedding drinks the evening before and a relaxed brunch or BBQ the day after, perfect for getting all of the post-wedding gossip!

4. You don’t have to clear up
Hiring an event management company such as Dine, means that they not only provide the catering and the marquee via sister company Shades, they will also coordinate and manage the set up and the running of your wedding day, before returning to clear up and take down the structure after the celebrations are over.

5. It’s cost effective
While not necessarily the cheapest option, a marquee can be surprisingly cost effective. Expect to pay from £11,800 + VAT for 60 guests with hospitality, although prices can vary depending on season and location.

If you don’t have space in your garden but still have your heart set on a marquee wedding, Dine has partnered with a host of beautiful heritage sites in Yorkshire including; Ripley Castle, Bolton Abbey and Carlton Towers, all of which offer fantastic waterside settings for your special celebration. Dine is also flexible to work with other venues on request.

Established in 1998, Dine caters for more than 100 corporate events and 200 weddings a year as well as providing exclusive private dining. The company provides event services for organisations ranging from English Heritage and the National Trust to the owners of some of the UK’s most notable private houses.
