The perfect DIY wedding decorations for your marquee

Some couples want to buy everything (or hire everything) when it comes to their wedding decorations. However, there are also plenty of couples who love the idea of being able to take a much more hands-on approach to their special day.

DIY wedding decorations do take time and effort, but when you are finished there is no feeling like knowing that you have made something yourself.

Need inspiration for DIY wedding decorations for your marquee? Here are some of the best ideas for you to try out yourself.


Garlands are not only easy enough to make, but they are also a great decoration for a variety of places at your wedding venue. They look great whether they feature lots of flowers, or whether they are more greenery based and you can include either fresh or silk flowers depending on your budget and what you prefer.


Chalkboards are another great way to add some personal details to your wedding day. You can buy a plain chalkboard and draw/write on it yourself. Or, if you truly want to get DIY with it, then you make one yourself using any form of wood and the specialist chalkboard paint that you can try. There are lots of uses for a chalkboard. You can use it as a way for guests to leave you messages, to welcome them in or to give them an idea of the timings for the day.

Hanging decorations

Your ceiling is often a forgotten space when it comes to your wedding decorations. But hanging decorations are actually a great way to add colour and style to your marquee or wedding venue. Fairy lights are the simplest option, especially against draped plain sheets. However, there are lots of other options such as using hoops with flowers around them and other draped decorations.

Polaroid photos

Photobooths at a wedding venue are great fun, but what you may not realise is that they can actually form part of the decoration too. A polaroid photo booth is going to not only be good entertainment for your guests, but you can also get them to display the images around the area, and this will add some real personal touches to your venue too.

These are just some of the great ideas that you can use to decorate your wedding venue. The thing to remember is that DIY decorations should always be in the style that you like, as well as be within your ability and time restrictions too.
