Open Weekend Style Tips Part One : How to Style your Wedding Marquee

Style your wedding marquee

Our Tipi and Marquee Open Weekend takes place on Friday the 5th October (2-9pm), Saturday 6th and Sunday the 7th Oct (10-5pm).  Get in touch to pre-register for your goodie bag!

Here’s Rebecca with Part One of ‘How to Style your Wedding Marquee’;  Part TWO on Friday is How to style your Tipi Wedding …

Make an Entrance!

I’m so excited about styling the open weekend and I think its so lovely to make a statement with the entrance to your beautiful wedding marquee. It doesn’t have to be elaborate but creating a focal point at the entrance, leads the eye in and gives a sense of arrival.

You could create an entrance with a clear span frontage. Place potted bay trees, hung with tea lights, or flower arrangements on barrels either side of the door. Cluster hurricane lanterns next to them to be lit at night for your evening guests too. Add some attractive seating areas that go with your theme to finish the look. You could also create a walkway to your marquee, lined with hanging lanterns, which look magical at night too.

Create Different Zones in Your Wedding Marquee

Marquee wedding are so versatile and unlike a venue in a building, your marquee is a total blank canvas, the perfect space for you to design. You can decide how big you want it, where you want the marquee and then exactly how to use the space.

Thinking about what will be happening on the day, you can create different spaces to make the most amazing day. A welcoming entrance area with seating, perhaps hire some cool sofas and low tables, you need a great bar area of course, maybe near the seating, a dance floor with plenty of room for everyone to join in. Eating is probably pretty key! So think about how you want the tables arranged and how they can be adapted later on in the evening as the use of the space changes.  If you have a spare zone, think about adding an extra bit of fun for you and your guests, a glitter station, a Photo Booth or maybe a gin or Prosecco station.

Look Up to the Skies

I love the clear span sections that you can add into the All About Me wedding marquees! In the day you can look up to the skies, watch the clouds float by, the sun going down and the stars at night.

You can also create stunning focal points with features such as hanging floral hoops above the round bar, or hang cool addison oak lighting beams with foliage, chandeliers and strings of festoon lighting, all create atmosphere and the wow factor.

Light Up the Room

Lighting in your wedding marquee can be so magical.  From festoon lighting, pealights, twinkly fairy lights, colourful up lighters, light up letters, candle light and stunning hanging candelabras and chandeliers. Lighting creates ambience and atmosphere and is just so pretty.

Style your wedding marquee

Decorate with Stylish Linen, Flowers and Stationery.

Finally, its a simple one really but gorgeous flowers, linen and stationery can tie the whole feel of the wedding marquee together. It can be as elaborate or as simply elegant as you want. Linen and florals soften the space even more and tie everything together for the perfect finishing touch to your wedding marquee!

competition winners

Did you always know you wanted tipis for your wedding?

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?

I think just celebrating with our friends and family in a beautiful setting.

What is your favourite aspect of the tipi and what made it the perfect venue for you big day?

It’s a lot more special than a standard marquee and we are looking forward to seeing it lit up with fairy lights in the evening. I think the whole look makes it perfect.
