Wedding tent decoration ideas

A wedding tent is a canvas just waiting for the right decorations. A tent provides walls panels, ceiling panels, door flaps and poles ripe for decorative accents. Flowers, lights, ribbons, bows or sculptures, all the popular decoration selections are still open to you. The key is to mix and match sizes so that you have items large enough to accent wall panels and items small enough to accent poles.

Sparkling Stars

Go for some glitter and sparkle in your wedding tent with lots of light decorations. Select strings with small white or clear lights. Wind the lights around every tent pole and drape them across the ceiling beam to create a starry look. Drape the wall panels with oversized star decorations in metallic silver or gold. Drape sparkling tulle swathes between the decorations as garland and around each doorway as a decorative frame.


Select earthy hues and natural materials to bring a countryside style into your wedding tent. Create a flared bouquet with dried wildflowers, sunflowers, wheat stalks and wild grass. Use rustic twine to attach each bouquet to the top of a pole. Drape the twine securely between the poles and across the top of each wall panel like garland. Twist faux ivy around each twine garland to give the tent an Old World feeling. Drape faux ivy and wheat wreaths from the ceiling beam to finish the natural decor.


Deck your wedding tent with hearts and flowers in red and pink to create a romantic theme. Wrap each tent pole with pink ribbon and crown each pole with a heart-shaped wreath of red, pink and white balloons. Drape several long strands of pink tulle over the ceiling beam to create a streamer effect across the ceiling and wall panels. Weave strings of small pink lights through the tulle to add a warm glow to the room. Hang a heart-shaped balloon wreath in the middle of each wall panel. Accent each doorway with ribbon tiebacks and a balloon wreath over the door.


Take your wedding tent to a classic level by incorporating tent lining into your decorations. Tent liners are simple decorative "inner" tents that mask the heavier tent panels. Use an ivory-coloured liner to add sophistication to the basic tent. Wrap each pole with white, gold and ivory ribbons tied into a giant bow at the top. Fill white, gold and ivory balloons with helium, tie each one with a ribbon, and release each balloon. The balloons will float up to create a decorative ceiling mosaic. Use any extra balloons to create a ribbon and balloon cornice over each doorway.
