Choose a frame marquee type if:
If you have no space around it for guy ropes, you can make use of every available inch of space if space is at a premium.
You want to sit the marquee against a building as an extension to indoor space.
You don't want internal poles, for an unobstructed view between guests/clients.
The marquee can't be pegged into the ground, it can be put up on hard surfaces and anchored using weights.
You want to join frame marquees together to make a variety of shapes. Frame marquees work well if you want to cover an awkward space.
Traditional Marquees: theses are the type of marquees that you commonly see at large shows, with their high peaked roofs and rows of guy ropes around them. Very dramatic, and good if you really want to impress your guests.
Use a traditional marquee if:
You want the look and feel of a traditional marquee to provide a magnificent backdrop for a formal occasion like a wedding.
You want a dramatic setting that can be lit at night, capturing their dramatic shape.
You want to use the internal poles for decoration purposes, with flowers, lights draped around them.
