If you are recently engaged and have decided on a marquee wedding in Melbourne, you’ve chosen a beautiful and personal way to tie the knot. There are a few things that require some forethought and planning though, in order to ensure the event goes off without a hitch. Harts have been providing wedding marquee hire to Melbourne couples for over 25 years and have seen firsthand some incredible weddings that have benefitted from some preparation. Here are some suggestions to make the journey that much easier.


Planning furniture requirements is not simply a matter of dividing guests into multiples. Remember you will need to take into account tables for food service, the wedding cake, the DJ, gifts and potentially many more uses. Determining the number of chairs, tables and other furnishings you need before you organise your wedding marquee hire in Melbourne will give you better understanding of the dimensions you need for your marquee.


Remember to take your caterers into account. They will need a covered area to prepare food and drinks. Take into consideration the amount and style of food you will be serving and talk to your caterer to gauge how much space they may need. The team at Harts is more than happy to suggest dimensions that will work for this area.

Similarly, when you arrange your wedding marquee hire in Melbourne, you may need to consider setting aside an area for audiovisual equipment, bands and other suppliers.


Your guests need to get from their transport to the marquee and vice versa. Some plastic and rubber flooring is an easy way to mark pathways, particularly in wet weather. Consider adding some lighting for extra convenience and a pleasing visual effect.


While we are on the subject of lighting, don’t underestimate its value in adding atmosphere and a personal touch to your wedding night. Harts also specialise in party lighting hire, allowing you to choose a style that best suits your theme, whether it be understated or festive.


Even very flat appearing land might not be as stable as you would hope. Adding some flooring will help keep furniture, equipment and floral arrangements upright. You may also want to add a dancefloor for you and your guests to enjoy.

Harts Premier Hire can assist with all of these aspects of your marquee wedding in Melbourne. Get in touch today to discuss how we can minimise the stress and maximise the magic on your special day.
