If you’re planning a small wedding or party in a marquee, the tips in today’s blog post, which is all about marquee decorations, should help you decorate it beautifully without having to spend a fortune in the process. Prepared by our marquee hire team, the tips cover basic marquee decoration ideas together with some specific tips for small parties and unique marquee weddings.

Marquee Decoration Basics

If this will be the first time you have attempted to decorate a marquee, be sure to take note of the following suggestions:

  • Pay Close Attention to the Main Entrance – An inviting entrance will set the tone for the whole marquee, so it's important not to overlook this area when planning your marquee decorations.
  • Avoid a Scattergun Approach – You will need to install the lighting before adding additional marquee decorations and setting up the furniture, so you’ll have to plan everything carefully. If you try to fly by the seat of your pants, you’re likely to end up with a confusing, poorly lit mess.
  • Balloons and Fairy Lights Are Beautiful and Inexpensive – You might think that they’re only suitable for kids’ parties, but you'd be wrong. When strategically deployed, simple wedding tent decorations like this can transform the look and feel of a marquee.
  • Use Peach Fabrics to Soften the Lighting – Light peach fabrics pinned to the ceiling in flowing lines can help to make the lighting more flattering in your marquee. Even if you only want simple wedding tent decorations, it’s worth considering this tip seriously.
  • Use Local Blooms if Possible – Filling your marquee with locally available flowers and greenery is a great way to create a beautiful environment on a small budget.
  • Don’t Forget the Floor – When people get dressed up for weddings and parties, they don't want to ruin their clothes in muddy conditions, so don't forget to organise flooring.

In addition to following the above suggestions, we recommend using a chair and table hire service, even if you have enough of your own. This is because the service provider will set up the furniture and take it away, making your life much easier.

Small Marquee Party Ideas

If you’re struggling to come up with ideas for marquee decorations for a small marquee party, consider an enchanted forest theme or perhaps a Hobbit village theme. They are both easy to pull off at a reasonable cost and a great choice for outdoor parties.

Unique Marquee Wedding Ideas

There are many popular marquee wedding ideas, but if you want to try something unique, consider either using events from your childhood as a theme or letting a local artist design and install your marquee decorations. You’ll need to develop these ideas further yourself to ensure they remain unique.
