Decorating a Wedding Marquee

One of the biggest and, dare we say it, the most fun tasks when planning a marquee wedding breakfast is choosing how to decorate the tent.

We’d be the first to admit that a marquee filled only with tables and chairs can look a little cavernous, cold and empty, so it’s ALWAYS recommended to really put the effort into the decoration side of it.

So, here are some marquee decorating ideas that won’t cost you the Earth to achieve:

Marquee Decoration Ideas

• Balloons - An obvious choice, but really think about how you can use balloons within a marquee for maximum impact. The tubular framework of the marquee makes an ideal unit to attach the balloons, so how about each tube of the framework with rows of balloons to create a beautiful running archway of elegance?

• Photography zone - you can pick up old prints and paintings for next to nothing from charity and antiques stores. Remove the picture and use the frame and some fancy dress items such as feather boas, oversized sunglasses, and novelty moustaches so that your guests can have fun with some instant cameras.

• Dancefloor - There are a few ways of achieving this with Gala Tent. We supply premium quality Swisstrax floor tiles in a variety of colours, including black and white, which can be placed in a checkered effect to build a dancefloor of any size. Alternatively, if you’re in the great outdoors, why not set up some hay bales at the rear of the marquee to create seats, and have a band play your first dance for you.

• Marquee Linings - Cover the framework and roof section with spectacular and luxurious satin linings, exclusively made to order for Gala Tent. The fireproof, ivory flowing material will give the appearance and feel of absolute luxury for your special day.

• Guestbook Signing Table - Don’t forget to give your guests the opportunity to write some lovely messages to you both to commemorate the happy day. Gala Tent supplies Granalite folding tables in a variety of sizes, which can do the job perfectly and cost effectively.

Of course, there are unlimited ways that you can express your personality through a wedding marquee, and these are only a few ideas, but we hope it’s food for thought and enough to get you started.
