The English Marquee Company shares its wedding trends for 2024/25

According to industry experts and trend forecasters, one of the standout trends for weddings is the return of the pole marquee as a popular choice for couples seeking a unique and memorable venue for their celebration. Renowned for its timeless elegance, versatility and romantic charm, the pole marquee offers a picturesque backdrop for weddings of all styles, from rustic and bohemian to classic and formal.

To provide further insight into this trend, co-founder of English Marquee Company, the leading provider of bespoke pole marquees known for their exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail, Tor Peters notes "Couples are seeking more unique and memorable ways to celebrate their special day, and the pole marquee offers a touch of vintage elegance that's hard to replicate with modern structures. It provides a beautiful backdrop that is versatile. With varying sizes and configurations, the pole marquee provides a customisable space that works for a wide range of budgets."
 
The pole marquee's appeal lies in its charming, rustic aesthetic, reminiscent of a bygone era. Its open sides allow for seamless integration with the surrounding environment, creating a harmonious bond between nature and celebration. Sam Peters, co-founder of The English Marquee Company says “ couples are increasingly drawn to this style because it offers a blank canvas for personalised decor, allowing their creativity to shine.”
 
In addition to the pole marquee's resurgence, other notable trends for the 2024/25 season include:

Sustainability: Eco-conscious couples are opting for eco-friendly decor, locally sourced food, and environmentally responsible practices. Sam & Tor of EMC say “Marquees by nature are relatively sustainable as they are used time and again, however we are increasingly looking at solutions that take it further. Working with local teams is vital. With our couples and planners we also discuss ways to support integrating any of their location into the marquee wherever possible. This can reduce the need for extra decorations or floral displays, therefore reducing costs and environmental impact.”
 
Technology integration: Couples are incorporating cutting-edge technology, using AI for seating plans, and interactive wedding websites, to enhance their guests' experience. Sam notes “we use mapping for our installation projects in many instances along with all our logistics work. We hear from colleagues and clients the benefits of using it for sorts of organisational elements as a tool.”
