Once you’ve arranged marquee hire in Surrey and are now going great guns with all your party organising, you can start to think about how you intend to light your marquee up once darkness descends. Luckily, there are lots of ways you can go about this so creating a truly ambient atmosphere couldn’t be easier. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.
When it comes to marquees, it’s an absolute must to use LED bulbs over traditional filament ones. If you go for the latter, you could mark the walls of the marquee itself or even set fire to it since filament bulbs do get hot. LEDs, in contrast, stay cool to the touch so you don’t have to worry about burning guests or torching your marquee to the ground – and thus losing your deposit!
Just because you’re going to be in a big tent doesn’t mean you have to compromise on luxury and all the finer details. Want a chandelier hanging from the ceiling? You can certainly have this – perfect for that truly elegant touch and a real talking point for all your guests.
Don’t forget to position your various lighting choices in different places around the marquee. Hang some high, hang some low. Uplighting – where lights are placed on the ground – will really help to light the space up very effectively indeed.
Don’t forget that you’ll also need to light up the outside areas of the tent as well as the inside and lanterns are ideal for this. They have a very fairytale-like feel about them and will really help to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
