The best thing about a marquee wedding venue is that it’s a blank canvas for you to decorate as you like! Here are just some of the ways you can make your marquee look magical…
In our opinion, a marquee isn’t complete without them! There are plenty of options when it comes to including twinkling lights in your marquee decorations, and many marquee venues will offer them as part of a decoration package (or even for free if you’re lucky!). You can string them between supporting poles (or around them), hire a fairylight canopy, or look into light-up ceiling drapes for a softer effect.
Another classic marquee decoration, bunting is a fail-safe when it comes to giving your venue a personal touch! Whether you choose fabric or paper bunting, there are so many colour and pattern options that you’re guaranteed to find something that’ll work with your theme.
Lanterns are a fabulous way to instantly give an empty marquee space a pop of colour and texture. Just like bunting, they come in a variety of colours and patterns, and you can even find light-up and waterproof lanterns to take your decorations from indoors to out. Just remember to vary the lantern sizes to get the best effect.
Flowers or foliage
Bring a little nature into your decorations with fresh or faux plants. Depending on your creativity and flower budget, there are plenty of options here, all of which are perfect for a boho or woodland theme wedding. You can use ornamental trees to give your guests the feel of being in a forest, hang flowers from the ceiling as a chandelier or backdrop, or wind ivy around the marquee supports.
Draping and interiors
If the marquee that comes with your venue isn’t the prettiest, there are ways you can completely transform the interior! With the use of clever linings, draping and uplighting, you can totally alter the look of your marquee, which is perfect for brides who want a unique look.
If you’re looking to create visual impact without the hassle of DIYing a million paper pom poms or metres of bunting, decorative balloons could be for you! Just a few giant balloons with tassel tails can fill a marquee ceiling, and you can choose colours to match your theme. You could use letter ballons to spell your initials or LOVE for a fun backdrop, too!
