If you’re planning on having a marquee wedding, you’re going to want it to be a glamorous, elegant affair. There are a number of different marquee options out there, from rustic styles to traditional canvas. The great thing about a wedding marquee is that you have complete creative control over the whole thing. They are perfect for those who have a larger wedding party, too.
With a wedding marquee, you must consider every single aspect of space and styling, as you are effectively decorating a blank canvas. If you want to know how you can make your wedding marquee as glamorous as possible, read on.
Wow your guests with the entrance
The first thing your guests are going to see is the entrance to your marquee. You want to make sure they are taken aback right away! Consider providing a clear entrance point, perhaps with a rug that suits your theme. You can also use signposts, and it’s up to you whether you want to hand make these for a rustic look or buy them ready made. Some people even like to have beautiful flowers either side of the entrance.
If you’re getting married later in the year, it’s likely going to be chilly. It’s possible to invest in a closing wooden door to keep the heat in.
Focus on flooring
You really have to start from the ground up, so what sort of flooring are you going to choose? There are a few different styles depending on your theme. For a festival wedding, coir matting is relaxed and looks great. If you have many guests coming in and out of the tent, it’s also good for hiding dirty footprints and other marks.
It’s even possible to lay down carpet for your marquee wedding, although this will cost thousands so you’ll need to consider your budget. Choosing a unique colour option could change the atmosphere of your space. For instance, green flooring could give the illusion of lush grass!
Choose your ceiling hangings
Marquee ceilings are really high, and you have a lot of potential for hanging different decorations and elements to add to your glamorous day. Some like to keep it simple and add bunting, but you could even hang flowers and foliage up there to break up the space and add the wow factor to your day. You’ll need to speak to a florist about your vision to see what they can create for you. You will also need to coordinate any plans you have with your lighting, so bear that in mind.
You’ll need different types of lighting for different areas and different times of day. For instance, if you want to create a nice chill out area, something to lower the light levels later on can give the space a magical glow. Remember, the style of lighting will enhance your space too. Chandeliers always look amazing!
Choosing aesthetic furniture is a must. Some people choose to cover up ugly furniture with chair covers and ribbons, but if you choose the right look, there’s no need to do this. You already have a wedding party, why do you want to dress your chairs up like bridesmaids? You could even potentially mix up your furniture styles if you want a quirky, yet glamorous day.
