Whether you are hosting your wedding in a barn, marquee, hotel or hall, bunting can totally transform and revive a space. So we’re going to be looking at some real-life ideas to inspire your own bunting look.

Where To Source Bunting?

Bunting is super simple to make (DIY Wedding Bunting Tutorial) or you can buy from a wide choice of sellers at an affordable price point. Not to mention you could actually rent bunting from wedding decor hire companies to save money and wedding day waste.

Without further ado, let’s discover all the ideas!

1. Disco Ball Fun

You could also mix bunting in with other hanging decorations including lighting, pom poms or streamers to really go all out.
