Creating An Atmosphere

Everything from the venue you choose to the greeting your guests are given as they arrive will make an impact on the atmosphere of your event. In the latest blog post from Big Top Marquees, we discuss how you can create an atmosphere to perfectly complement the style of event you are creating.


Music is used at almost every event to create a certain ambience. It is important to note that it is not just the style of music played that can change the feel of the event, it is also the volume of the music playing. If you would like your guests to mingle with each other, but still feel free to talk without everyone hearing them, you will need to play music at a level that goes some way towards drowning out conversations between separate groups, without being disruptive and thus becoming a barrier for communication.


The decor of your event typically complements the dress code, i.e if the decor of the event is formal and classic, the dress code will follow suit. However, it is not uncommon for some events to deviate from this and choose conflicting styles to add intrigue to the event.

The style of decor you choose ultimately comes down to personal taste and must coincide with any budgetry restrictions. There are many ways to decroate your chosen venue, including draping, various ligthing styles and even simple additions such as lanterns or bunting.

Furniture and Props

The addition of certain furniture and props at your event will ensure you create an immersive experience that is consistent throughout each aspect. For example, if you were creating a vintage-inspired event and wanted your guests to feel immersed in the era your event has been inspired by, using standard modern chairs, would not only stand out for all the wrong reasons, they would also put a big hole in the authenticity of the atmosphere.
