Case study: Brian owns a pub that isn't large enough to hold weddings

Brian is a landlord in a pub, the currently host parties and small wedding but their main function room has a maximum capacity of 50 so isn't suitable for most weddings. Brian approached us to discuss how he could use marquees to help him accommodate larger functions and weddings in particular.

Points that Brian raised:

DIY Marquees response:

At this stage Brian indicated he wanted to go for the extension option. This was due to the cost, his target market and also wanting to keep the marquee up without it taking over the garden and him losing the outdoor seating so popular in the summer.

DIY Marquees suggested solution:

We pointed out that in the evening lots of people (mainly blokes) will linger by the bar, if they weren't considering setting up an additional bar in the marquee (they weren't) then it would probably be best to have the evening dance floor in the pub's function room. This meant:

We suggested using one of our 6x16m Commercial or Deluxe DIY Marquees (see diagram below for layout) that could hold 80-100 guests for a wedding with plenty of room for walking between tables. Brian could shorten the marquee using one of our catering partitions for smaller functions. For future expansion we explained that Brian could attach another marquee on the side or could extend the marquee by buying an extension bay or bays and a larger roof.
