Decorated Tent for Wedding

Transform any Tent with these 6 Steps

Because tents tend to be quite plain without any sort of décor, don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild. Think of your tent as a blank canvas that you can completely transform with a few key steps.

Decorate your space in layers. Start with draping and lighting, then add tables and chairs, and finally, florals and décor.

We’ve compiled a list of tips to make your special day picture perfect.

  1. Go from drab to dazzling with draping

Gone are the days of polyester pipe-and-drape backdrops. Our designers use silky, flowing drapery to softens an otherwise plain space and add a romantic feel – perfect for the bride and groom.

Your wedding style will determine which fabrics to use. Transparent materials allow light to shine through, which can be great if you’re pairing them with string lights and want a subtle sparkle. Heavier-weighted fabrics can be used to create dramatic, swooping curves that create a billowy, airy ceiling. Consider using both types of fabrics in differing shades for an added effect.

Mix things up with asymmetrical draping. We especially love this technique when used in an entryway or marquee tent. What a great way to wow your guests!

  1. Lights, Camera, Action!

Think for a moment about your favorite types of lights. This is not a trick question, we promise.

Are you drawn to glitzy, dazzling chandeliers? Or do you prefer oversized globe lights reminiscent of old Hollywood movies? Maybe it’s the twinkling of tiny fairy lights that make you swoon.

Now imagine incorporate those styles into your wedding tent décor. Anything is possible. If you can dream it, we can make it happen.

You can even combine two of your favorites! Suspend glass chandelier from the ceiling of your tented reception and incorporate twinkling lights into the draping for a truly elegant feel.

And don’t forget the magic of uplighting!

Lights can be projected onto draping from the floor upward or from the ceiling downward to completely change the mood of your space. This is a great way to transition from whites and ivories during the ceremony to vibrant pinks or purples as everyone dances the night away.

  1. Natural nuptials

Incorporating florals into your wedding décor is a surefire way to elevate your event; they’re romantic, fragrant, and provide a natural element to your tent.

Opt for an organic feel with lush greenery (think: garland and topiaries) or be a boho bride and suspend brightly-colored flowers from the tent’s ceiling.

Select flowers and plants that complement your bridal style and maintain cohesion throughout the ceremony and reception. Pretty pink peonies are better suited for a rustic wedding than, say, long-stem red roses.

  1. Texturize your tent

Beaded curtains can add another sparkly element to your special celebration. Work them into your drapery panels hung behind flickering candlelight. Or better yet, mix in tiny LED fairy lights to illuminate the strands of beading.

If you’re looking for something a bit more whimsical, ribbon streamers are another fantastic option. Create a ribbon canopy over your dance floor for a truly fanciful feel.

  1. Come on in, have a seat!

Spruce up your space with our selection of furniture options, which range from sweet and simple to extravagant.

Family-style seating is perfect for intimate celebrations and really allows friends and family to get to know one another. Pair our handcrafted farm tables with metallic chairs for a relaxed, rustic reception. Add an oversized area rug for an extra cozy feel.

If your groom’s style is a bit more modern and luxurious, consider bringing velvet couches into your tent. Coupled with those glass chandeliers you love and high-top cocktail tables, and you’ll have instant glam!
