    Ok, a Marquee. Just been to my friends wedding, and she looked so beautiful, and the Marquee was in a gorgeous place surrounded by fields and the sea in every direction. But fook me, it was freezing! Started to rain, I'm still trying to get warmed up now. The big chocolate fountain refused to work so ended up the be a Chocolate pond instead, and the pig for the Hog Roast set on fire and took the cooking tent with it, and had to be extinguished :shock: currently lying cremated in the middle of a field! So the moral of the story is....never get married in a tent :rofl: lol

    Oh dear, are they not meant to have those heater things? Like the patio heaters?

    I really think a dead pig carcus is about the least romantic thing someone could have at a wedding?! I just cant fathom it...candles, lights, butterflies, pearls, dead carcus-check! :wacko: Im dumb founded at the idea personally! Sorry to all those who like/are having them!

    No patio heaters and we were right next to the door. Brrrrrr.
    It wasnt very nice seeing it as black as coal with its legs stuck up in the air i know that much :shock: I said to OH ' should they not put a sheet over him' and everyone laughed at me :dohh::blush: Was horrible!
    On the plus side, at least going to 2 weddings in 2 weeks has given me lots of ideas of what i definately do/dont want! :thumbup:

    I am having an outdoor/barn wedding and I am praying the weather is good. As for the hog roast, it was suggested to us and I dismissed the idea right away, not something I wanted to see on my wedding day!

    Ours is outdoors as well but on a pavillion that's covered and has drop down doors (similar to a garage? ha ha ha) in case it rains.

    I'm not a fan of pig roasts either if I'm honest. I don't like my food "looking" at me when I'm eating it. :sick: I love pretty much all pork products, I went to a pig roast the first year I moved to the city I'm in now and it made me sick. First time in my life I ever turned down pork! :rofl:

    My OH owns a hog roasting business and does loads of wedding and I always think 'why??'. I'm really squeamish about meat anyway but i just do not get the big fuss about eating a giant pig that you can see :wacko:
