Winners of the 2018 Irish Wedding Awards!

It’s been another amazing year for us here at Marquee Marvel and we have to say, we’re extremely pleased with everything we have achieved over the past 12 months. Our friendly team has been busy supplying party marquee hires throughout Ireland for every type of occasion, and we have many unique marquees for hire to help any occasion go with a swing.

As a collective, we work extra hard to maintain our reputation in the industry and always go the extra mile to keep our clients happy, whatever type of party they are planning. This hard work paid off recently, and we’re delighted to announce, we’re one of the 2018 winners for the Irish Wedding Awards – which makes us very proud!


What exactly are the Irish Wedding Awards?

Celebrating those who make weddings special, The Irish Wedding Awards are an annual ceremony where major suppliers and anyone who works in the industry can be recognised and rewarded for their contribution to making your day perfect. This year’s event was hosted by Creative Oceanic and held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Dublin on 28th January, and it’s a celebration of everything that is good about the wedding industry, with votes from the general public to show that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.

Winners of the awards are hailed through a secret voting system from previous clients, and Marquee Marvel was nominated as a finalist back in 2017 and again in 2018.

Whilst we narrowly missed out on the ultimate prize last year, this was definitely our year, and we were crowned overall winners in the Specialist Wedding Category for 2018, and have a shiny new glass award to proudly display on our mantelpiece.

Marquee Decorations on a Budget

Wedding Marquee Decorations on a Budget!

Creative, Cheap and Cheerful – the wonderful world of marquee decorations

The Great thing about this area is that unlike everything else related to weddings, it doesn’t have to be expensive. You don’t have to drop €1000 on personal candles, lanterns and tree lighting when you can get the same thing from Ikea for like €4.

And let’s face it, half these things will end up ruined or around someone’s head by the end of the night anyway.

The other thing is that you can also involve your family and friends in HANDMADE CRAFTING getting everyone involved in the special day prep (and getting some FREE labour).

The great thing is – with marquee decorations; you don’t really need to think too deeply on it. There is no need to spend lots of money on other peoples’ concepts and designs. Instead eBay, Ikea and Amazon are your new best friends and it’s simple to make the rest up as you go along. If you want a vintage-style wedding sign with cream-coloured bunting? Go for it. Find your nearest arts and craft store and go mad!

Here are some decorative bits that have caught my eye so far, all under €30:

Table decorations and centerpieces

I’m a big fan of the whole wild flowers in glass bottles thing, the paper flowers are a nice touch to scatter over marquee trestle tables and water bottles bring a welcome dash of colour to proceedings. You can pick up cheap coloured bottles in both Amazon, Ebay and Ikea!!

Outdoor lighting and candles

There are numerous options for jazzing up the outside of your marquee, and they don’t need to be of a €500-a-go sculptured light installation. Start off with coloured or plain [...]
