Planning your wedding can be a very exciting and joy-filled time, choosing your outfits, choosing the rings, deciding on any musical entertainment, planning on decorations for the venue and sending out the invites.
But it can also have its perils – who to invite who to leave out. Who to invite just for the evening and who not to invite at all. A lot of this can come down to the style of day that you want as well as budget which can also be a consideration. If you are planning your wedding now, you should know you are not alone – there are hundreds of couples across the country going through exactly the same dilemma as you!
Weddings range in size of guests hugely from immediate family up to hundreds of guests. One of the beautiful aspects of a marquee wedding is the flexibility it affords you when deciding on guest numbers – many marquees are modular, meaning they can be extended or decreased in size, once you know final guest numbers – a benefit not afforded to traditional buildings (unless they extend using a marquee!)
At Marquee Hire Guide .com we receive literally 1000’s of marquee wedding enquiries every year – which we pass to our hirers for them to quote. We thought it would make an interesting read to see how many guests the average marquee wedding has in the UK. So we have trawled through all of the enquiries since the start of 2013 to work out an average – looking at day time guests for weddings in a marquee or alternative tent (yurts, tipis, stretch tents, etc) during this time and working out at average.
The results were very interesting – and showed a slight drop in numbers from the last time we did this a couple of years ago when the average number of guests was 120.
The average number of day time guests that are now invited to a marquee wedding is 114.
Whatever size of wedding you are planning – we hope it goes fantastically and wish you all the best for a happy life together – and remember, although the average number of guests at a marquee wedding is 114 – there is no such thing as “the average wedding” – everyone single one is unique.
