After taking delivery of brand new clear marquee we have been so happy to supply our couples with the best quality German designed and manufactured product available on the market. We have been thrilled to complete a number of jobs in the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Newcastle regions.
But….while a white marquee will reflect heat, a clear marquee can get very hot if exposed to the sun, remember it is really like a large green house, great for growing tomatoes but not so fabulous for a wedding lunch. Daytime temperatures have been measured at 55 degrees and more in a clear marquee which is in the sun. This is not an ideal environment for those people setting up the marquee before the wedding, a daytime wedding or for flowers or candles placed on tables for decorations.
So if you are looking to hire a clear marquee for your wedding there are 3 main things to consider:
Time of Year
Clear marquees really come into their own in our cooler months. Early spring and autumn are great, but a winter wedding really is fabulous in a clear marquee. The warmth inside is perfect for guests and those crystal clear winter nights are stunning when viewed from inside a clear marquee roof. (You can also take advantage of some great winter savings!)
If you are sold on a clear marquee, where you position it will make a big difference. Finding a shady spot at your venue is key, this will shield your marquee from the sun and help with the set up and decoration of your marquee as well as the temperature inside once your wedding begins.
Time of Day
Along with positioning your marquee in the leafy spot, the time of your wedding is crucial, lunchtime weddings in the summer are not the ideal conditions for a clear roof, but a wedding that starts in the evening is much better. Walls can be folded back to take advantage of any breezes and the marquee will cool down considerably once the sun has gone to bed. Also that is when inside lighting really looks magical and takes your big day to the next level.
