Party marquees…..”We don’t want the marquee to look too weddingy”

Many of our customers who are hosting a party in a marquee share the concern that they do not want their guests to feel like they are at a wedding. Listening to these concerns we have drawn up a 5 point guide to ensure your party marquee looks and feels just like your very own private venue.

Use flat linings as opposed to pleated linings…


After meeting with prospective customers and hearing their thoughts on the look of the marquee we approached our manufacture to see if they offered any interior lining that looked less traditional than the pleated lining. The solution was a flat lining, which after a viewing our team agreed without doubt that flat lining completely changed the look of the marquee making it look more contemporary and less…”weddingy”.

Since the viewing we have purchased flat lining in both 6m and 9m widths and they have proved extremely popular.

Use the correct lighting…

Try to avoid the more traditional looking lighting such as chandeliers. We always recommend using coloured uplighters which are small box lights that sit on the ground shining upwards. The light and colour that are produced reflect off the marquee wall and ceiling creating a party ambience suitable for all celebrations.

Getting the right colour scheme can be crucial…

Choosing darker colours for the lining swag and your carpet really set the tone for a great night. Try to avoid colours such as sky blue, ivory or light pink as these sorts of colours are usually associated with weddings. Choose colours such as black, purple or red for something more striking.

Accessorise…

We have a fantastic range of both marquee accessories and furniture that will complement your party marquee superbly well. Additions such as the glow bar, glow cube seats, black and white leather cube seats, imitation trees and a disco ball are always an instant hit.

Explore your catering options…

If you are looking to feed your guests without having formal seating arrangements you may want to consider fun alternatives such as ‘bowl food’ also known as “mini meals”. The idea is that your guests are served 5 or 6 taster portions of main meals throughout the evening while standing.
