Top Tips For Decorating A Marquee Wedding
If you’re dreaming of a relaxed, boho affair, why not create a stylish entrance for your marquee wedding? You could build a wooden archway and adorn it with gorgeous blooms. It’ll be the first thing your wedding guests see, and it’s guaranteed to take their breath away.
Lanterns are a wonderful way of decorating the outside of your marquee entrance too. Whether you’re tying the knot in the Summer or Winter, they’re a fab addition to a marquee wedding. They’ll look fab in the daytime, and will give your venue a warm glow in the evening.
For a floral wow factor ask your florist to help you create a stunning entrance for your wedding guests. Foliage and branches added to the entrance drapes can look wonderful and not too heavy on your budget.
Add the wow factor to your marquee by placing milk churns bursting with beautiful blooms at the entrance of your marquee. This is particularly perfect if you’re planning a country garden wedding theme.
Signs and seating plans are another easy way of making sure your marquee looks gorgeous! They can help to hide the parts of the marquee you’re not too keen on, and will help to reflect your wedding theme.
Bunting is a simple yet effective way of making your marquee wedding venue look oh-so-pretty. It’s a fab fit for a garden fete or floral wedding theme, and it looks stunning draped across the ceiling of the marquee.
This year’s big trend is the hanging hoop! And hoops look amazing in marquees, there will be points in your marquee you can easily hang from whether you choose to hang them over tables, down the centre of the marquee or as a backdrop to the top table.
A beer bath doesn’t only look cool but can be a great talking point for guests too. This creates an informal setting for your guests to enjoy a drink in the sunshine.
While guests are enjoying their drinks reception think about how you will entertain them. Marquees are often set in large open spaces with plenty of grass around. Why not set up some garden games to keep your guests entertained and mingling.
We’re huge fans of statement backdrops, and we think they’re a stunning way of adding to your venue decor. They can inject some colour into a white marquee, and they also look fabulous in photographs. From colourful ribbon garlands to wooden panels adorned with greenery, there are so many ways of creating a show-stopping backdrop.
Hanging installations are predicted to be huge for 2017 weddings, and we think they look ultra-elegant at a marquee wedding. Bejewel a hanging chandelier with your favourite flowers, or hang a mixture of ribbon garlands from them. However you choose to decorate them, they effortlessly add the wow factor to your wedding venue.
Make your seating plan a focal point of your wedding reception! We love the idea of hanging old-fashioned bicycle wheels from the marquee – a fab choice if you’re dreaming of a vintage wedding. Adorn the wheels with elaborate flowers or even fairy lights.
Add a splash of colour to your marquee wedding by hanging multi-coloured paper lanterns from the ceiling. You could hang them above the dance-floor, the bar area or across the whole marquee. Colourful lanterns will transform any marquee and they’ll look incredibly fun.
The contrast of wild greenery and foliage against the backdrop of a white marquee wedding venue really does look magical. You’ll be seeing greenery a lot throughout 2017, and it can really give your wedding venue a botanical vibe.
Sometimes all you need are a few show-stopping table centrepieces to make your marquee wedding look incredible. Tall candelabra entwined with roses, greenery and trailing ivy looks beautiful for a fairytale wedding day.
Add personal touches to the marquee by installing photo displays. Photos of guests or family through the years or make a photo display of family members/friends who are no longer with you so they are remembered on your wedding day.
A marquee wedding gives couples the chance to add their personality and style to their wedding venue.
