I’m getting married outside in a new england style home, we are getting a century tent to go on the lawn, but i’m at a loss of how to decorate it. We are on a tight budget, so far everything has been pretty much DIY so i’m not afraid of prejects. My style is botanical woodsy vintage. I’m having a lot of moss on the tables with plums, lilacs and gold tones, lots of mismatched vintage china and lace. Will paper lanterns clash with my theme?? I don’t know what else to hang or put inside the tent. Chandeliers are way exoensive and so are tent liners…any ideas welcome thanks ladies!

What about pom-pom garlands, or bunting? Or garlands of some other sort.

Responding now so I can reply once I’ve gotten home from work (I have some tent decor inspiration pictures on my computer at home!)

I think twinkle lights would be beautiful.

Some ideas for draping fabric (doing this in tulle would be fairly inexpensive):
Draping idea using pomanders to pull the look together, easy to DIY:
Chandelier alternatives/DIY chandeliers:
Made from hula hoops:
Made from paper:
Made from thrift store necklaces/beads:
Made from hanging wire baskets… In a different color/with metallic finish spray paint, could be lovely:
Also, what are you thinking for centerpieces? I think tall centerpieces can make a tent reception look particularly grand.
Hope some of this helps to get your creative juices flowing!

Thank you so much for those beautiful pictures, I particularly like the hula hoop chandeliers, they come out looking great! For centerpieces I’m doing alternating low and to add dimension 🙂

Does anyone have experience or advice for DIY draping? Our tent estimates for draping are close to 1800! Crazy! I have enough people to do it ourselves, but am worried because we won’t have a dry run! Advice?
