THE WEDDING OF YOUR DREAMS

AT HOME WEDDINGS WITH DINE

If you are lucky enough to have space in the garden, there’s something wonderfully relaxed and intimate about holding your wedding in your own home or in the home you grew up in. Such an individual location enables you to buck the trend and create your own traditions by putting your own personal stamp on your day in a unique family setting. Your home will already hold so many memories; wouldn’t it be amazing to add a few more.

STEP 1 - ARRANGE A CALL OR SITE VISIT

You will have a million ideas in your head – it’s only natural. You should talk to a Dine Event Manager and if possible, meet face to face or on a video call. They will listen and guide you towards the next step and key decisions you will need to make.

STEP 2 - THINK ABOUT THE "PLAN"

A great marquee wedding doesn’t happen without practical planning from the start. You can use your Dine Event Manager to plan the layout of the marquee, where guests will park, how long it will take to get to the marquee, where the kitchen will go, the floor plan & timings – it’s not just about the food!

STEP 3 - WHAT DO YOU NEED "INCLUDED"

You probably don’t know right now exactly what you want & it won’t do much good to know that the options are pretty much endless! To help, we’ve put together some examples of what options we’ve put together for couples in the past. Don’t get too focused on the final product yet because that can come further down the line. Concentrate on those essentials and you can build from there.

WEDDING CASE STUDIES

You will probably be completely new to this so the below helps you see exactly what bits and pieces we can include & an initial estimate on pricing. If you are absolutely clear on exactly what you want then you can skip this step and go straight to a confirmed proposal which your Dine Event Manager can put together for you.

STEP 4 - CONFIRM THE MARQUEE & CATERING OPTIONS

Once you’ve got the plan sorted & quotes confirmed you are ready to book the key suppliers. You will find that we try to think of what you might need before you ask for it & automatically include it in our quote. Other couples have always said to us that they found that particular element of the service so useful because it stopped the budget getting out of control in the final few months.

We have been lucky to work with so many couples who have taken the time afterwards to say thank you. It makes all the hard work and sleepless nights worth it!

STEP 5 - LET THE FUN STUFF BEGIN!

You will feel a total weight off your shoulders knowing the practical plan is taken care of. It’s now time to start making all those dreams you’ve had over the years into a reality but knowing exactly what framework you have to play with. Your Dine Event Manager will be there throughout to provide advice, top tips & ensure you remain calm to make the best decisions.

WEDDING PLANNING ADVICE

We have a few options - Rise Hall, Howsham Hall, Sefton Park, Ripley Castle, Bolton Abbey, Carlton Towers, Dalton Hall & Belvoir Castle. You should speak to an Event Manager about the best location for you.

It's typically more expensive than a standard venue but may not be quite as much as a venue with lots of accommodation on site. The most common issue we hear from people who don't use Dine initially is that the costs were escalating through the process. We will give you a thorough and accurate cost based on specific requirements following a site visit. The average spend for a marquee wedding (including Marquee, Food & Drink) in the North of England is £25,000 and a little more in the South.

Don’t worry – we can work that out for you. Simply tell us the number of guests you’re planning for your wedding day and evening celebrations and we will advise you on the best marquee size. The beauty of marquees is that they’re easily scalable so can be adapted to suit your requirements.

You can't go too far wrong by arranging an initial "site visit" with a marquee supplier and caterer who provides an Event Management service. Like with any major life decision, you'll know quite quickly if you've actually found someone you trust and want to work with - they'll think of the things you haven't and immediately bring know-how and sound advice to your original ideas. We can organise as much or as little as you like, from handling just the food to planning your whole day.

Sadly not (yet). In England, your marriage ceremony must take place under a fixed structure. It is possible to get married outside, but as long as it’s under a fixed structure that also has a wedding licence, such as a pagoda. A marquee is a temporary structure so you can’t have your wedding ceremony in it. However, you could have an informal ceremony or blessing in a marquee, and have the legally binding part in another venue that is licensed for civil ceremonies.
