Black Tie Decor Themes for Your Marquee

Whether you are trying to capture the style of James Bond in Casino Royale or the elegance of the Hollywood starlets on the red carpet, a black tie wedding or party theme is perfect for those looking to create a high class and extremely memorable event. Your black tie theme could be further refined and focus around art deco, Great Gatsby style decor or for something quite grown up, you could opt for a black tie casino theme complete with game tables!

Black Tie Drapery

The drapery you choose for your wedding or party marque will really help to set the scene for your theme. For black tie it is best to choose colours such as black, white, gold and dark brown. You can add a special touch by incorporating fairy lights into dark black draping above your dance floor.

Black Tie Marquee Lighting

Once your drapery is all in place the next thing to look at is lighting. Chandeliers are the most obvious choice for a black tie themed event and they really do add the wow factor. Other options include decorative table lamps and ‘curtains’ of fairy lights.

Black Tie Table Decor

For your tables opt for striking table numbers, bow tie shaped napkins, mirror tile coasters and diamante table confetti. You could also look at hiring bowler hat shaped ice buckets which are sure to make for an interesting focal point.

Black Tie Marquee Furnishings & Props

Welcome your guests into your marque with a carpeted walkway reminiscent of film premiers and choose ornate furniture in contrasting colours (like the white sofa with black cushions below) for a striking effect. You can also add sparkle to your photography by providing a glitzy photo-booth area or by scattering frames around your marquee for guests to use in their snaps.
