We are frequently asked to dress conference rooms for weddings and parties and examples of venue decoration can be found throughout our blog. The Hilton Metropole at the NEC Birmingham offers a good example of what can be done to make a room “weddingy” without breaking the bank. For this rather large Greek wedding with 600 guests, we provided uplighters in the wedding colours, a backdrop behind the top table and a starcloth behind the band. Chair covers, bows and tall table centres completed the look. The overall hire cost was low, particularly given the size of the room, but the impact was great and turned a traditional meeting room into a wedding venue.
