    one toilet for 60-75 people isn’t going to be enough, especially if you are serving cocktails.  The heating and keeping the wet out is really going to depend on the venue or the marquee provider (fyi for USA Bees, a Marquee is a more elegant tented area) and their methods of heating and waterproofing, so you probably want to talk to some of their former clients, or have them explain in great detail how they are going to do things, so you can get some level of confidence, as the UK in March can be a pretty awful time to spend more than a short time outside, depending on where you live… so that I can’t help you with… but I can absolutely say that you are not going to have enough toilet facilities, and to me, that would be a deal breaker.

    Personally– and this is just me– the thought of a nighttime wedding in the UK (guessing you’re in the UK from your use of the GBP symbol) in March under a Marquee does not appeal to me at all.  I froze my tail off at a daytime wedding in Wales in May on a sunny, clear day, and I’m shivering already thinking of a March evening in a Marquee. Not to be a downer. Just saying your tenting company has its work cut out for it in a very big way.
