LOVE sign – 2015 trend!

Based on our current enquiries it looks like our illuminated LOVE sign is set to be the must have product of 2015!

 love sign

Our LOVE sign was custom made in the UK to our own specifications – we took the best of all the other products out there and made a one of a kind super product! (and we are delighted with the results!)

Our LOVE sign is 5ft tall and have a stainless steel casing which gives a better finish than other products and a contemporary look. The best feature about our letters is that they have a ‘carnival’ bulb finish – these special bulbs give off a star effect rather than the normal glow of a bulb. The effect is striking and really gives the perfect finish!

On the technical side our LOVE sign uses LED bulbs which means that they require little power but give off a good amount of light (this is something your venue may ask!). Although each letter has it’s own power supply, so the letters can be split up if needed, we can plug in to an extension and power off of one normal mains plug socket (another question you may be asked, as many venues struggle for sockets!)

Photographers have noted that our letters are a great photo opportunity for both bride and groom shots, as well as the rest of the wedding party – especially if it is wet outside!

Our LOVE sign is a huge hit!

“Thank you very much for the ‘Love Sign’, they were very popular and everyone at our wedding loved them!” Mr and Mrs Blyth

Mr and Mrs Blyth shared with us their great photos featured in this blog – but more of their LOVE sign photos can be found on our Facebook page.

A great match to this product is our fairy light canopies, LED dance floors and uplighting – jump on the lighting trend and transform your venue with lighting! Details of this lighting and our LOVE sign can be found on our main webpage.

Marquee Hanging Lanterns

We are proud to be the official suppliers for all marquee hanging lanterns installations by The Hanging Lantern Company in Scotland. We love the massive transformation these make to any venue space.

Marquee Hanging Lanterns – huge wedding trend!

We have seen a lot of enquiries and bookings for marquee hanging lanterns in the last 6 months – it is certainly on trend for weddings currently!

What colour of lanterns do you do?

Well, thanks to our fab suppliers, we have the whole spectrum on offer. We have set up marquee hanging lanterns with just white lanterns, white and white lace lanterns for a simple, elegant look. We have done pastel tones – some of our favourite have been pastel pinks, dove grey and ivory. But we have also done BOLD installations with red, yellow, orange, turquoise, green and purple all featuring together – a multi coloured set of marquee hanging lanterns for a fresh and bright summer wedding!

We recommend a mixture of sizes – our lanterns are available 3-5 sizes depending on the colour.

We can also offer marquee hanging lanterns with lights inside – illuminated lanterns. Sometimes we light half and half, or we can light them all – just enquire for this price.

The Hanging Lantern Company also offer fab pom poms in a variety of colours which we can also add in to our lantern installations.

Hanging lanterns also look great in barns, halls and also hotels. If you are looking for lanterns in a hotel then it is likely that we will need to add fixtures (but this is something we can discuss!)

Our hanging lanterns also look fab when mixed with our fairy lights or our festoon lights and these can be added into your canopy to get the ultimate wow factor!

Wedding Post Box Hire

The perfect addition to any big day – our wedding post box hire!

wedding post box hireOne of our most popular items over the last few years has been our wedding post box hire. These are a replica of the Royal Mail post boxes but instead of being in a heavy iron they are made out of a fibre glass (using a mould taken from an actual post box) and are perfect in every size and proportion!

What colour does your wedding post box hire come in?

We have red, pale pink, purple and ivory available.

Our ivory wedding post box hire is the most popular of colours – the traditional post box in ivory is very wedding like and fits in with any colours scheme you may be having for your big day!

Our red postbox is of course the traditional colour and, again, will fit with any theme. There is something great about the postbox in the pillar box red that it we are used to!

Our pink wedding post box hire is great for a more feminine scheme and works well for vintage weddings. The pale pink is very delicate and subtle for the vintage or country feel, but the pink also works well for a ‘pink’ wedding too. Great for the girls out there!

And finally our purple wedding post box is perfect for the most popular of wedding colour schemes. The deep purple works well for the classic ‘cadbury’ purple wedding or aubergine/plum (which is a huge trend!)

As our Royal Mail wedding post boxes are not made from iron it is light enough to be couriered throughout the UK – so please ask about this service!

If you would like to see more accessories as well as our wedding post box hire please visit our webpage.

Or you can see more pictures of our wedding post box hire at weddings on our Facebook page!

Silver Candelabra Hire

Silver candelabra hire has always been popular from our range – but why? silver candelabra hire

Our ever popular silver candelabra is probably one of our most popular pieces and it’s look is timeless. Our silver candelabra hire, with their classic shape, fits perfect with wedding elegance or corporate events with the WOW factor. We also love to mix these silver candelabra with our striking black ones, alternating on each table – this works well for large events to create variation per table.

Silver candelabra hire – it is affordable!

Candelabra are traditional and with their height create a show stopping centrepiece. The candlelight creates a dramatic ambience. But all of this is also extremely affordable! Our silver candelabra hire is £16 per item, including candles.

Candelabra are stunning! One of best things about our silver candelabra hire is that we have matching floor standing candelabra available and these are used  at the top of the ceremony aisle.

If you have more of a budget and want to create a bigger impact then on top of our silver candelabra hire we can organise event floristry for you too! Pictured here is a full arrangement of gyposophilia and sweet avalanche roses (used as part of a Scottish Wedding Directory Magazine shoot!), but one of the most popular is with hydrangea and avalanche roses, or white avalanche roses and thistles – check out the pictures of all our silver candelabra hire arrangements on our Facebook page! We also love placing posies of flowers at the base of the candelabra or adding in hanging crystals or pearls – so many different looks for one item!

If you require a quote for our silver candelabra hire, or our popular black or gold styles, then get in touch with us here at Make Believe!

Kirknewton Stables – Lighting

The perfect blank canvas – Kirknewton Stables.

We loved being a part of the wedding at Kirknewton Stables this last weekend – organised by the amazing Scoop event caterers! Their food is delicious and the decor was starting to take shape when we left – it was a wedding we would definitely like to attend!

Our new Festoon Lights in the Kirknewton Stables marquee looked fab – they really make a statement as a marquee canopy. The impact from the darker wire really changes the look of the space and this helped dress the marquee into the perfect bar area for night.

We also scaled some heights to wrap fairy lights around the beams in the main stable barn area of Kirknewton Stables – this broke up and separated the beams. There were 60 beams so we wrapped fairy lights around 15 of them and it changed the space. (Kirknewton liked them so much they bought them off us and remain up!)

Wedding Fairy Lights

Make Believe Events have become experts in wedding fairy lights and canopies throughout the UK.wedding fairy lights

Whether it is fairy light canopies in marquees, barns, stables, castles, church halls, hotels or courtyards we have gained vast experience in various designs and styles.

Wedding fairy lights are most commonly done in marquees and here we can offer them in a linear design (which mimics the shape of the ceiling) or a pea design which goes from a central point. The most popular option is definitely the linear design but some marquees suit other designs better – ask us what we think is best!

Another popular location for wedding fairy lights in ceiling work is in the ceilings of barns or halls where there are rafters involved – again we work with the shape of the space and what fixtures are available to make the canopy look its best.

We always like a challenge and some of our fairy light canopy installations have taken some very special planning! But we love working out ways we can achieve a fairy light canopy – even in the strangest of places.

We also have the fabulous new festoon lights which work well alongside our fairy light canopy work, and this creates lighting in outdoor spaces too. You may also want to consider adding in hanging lanterns (either illuminated or not) or pom-poms in to your fairy light canopy – just ask for options!

What kind of wedding fairy lights do you use?

Our fairy lights are industry standard – these are specially made for event work. They are LED so take little power and as they are custom for event work they only require either 1 or 2 power points (which may not seem like an important factor but most venues have a lack of power points!)

If you wish to see examples of our wedding fairy lights then check out out Facebook page.

Ivory Chair Cover Hire

Ivory chair cover hire is starting to feature more within the Make Believe Events portfolio.

Although white chair covers are the most popular of our colours, ivory chair cover hire is really becoming popular this spring!

Why ivory chair cover hire?ivory chair cover hire

Ivory is a definitely a statement of luxury to make at a wedding, It is a departure from the traditional white however is not too much of a impact as some of our colour or black chair covers are. Ivory chair cover hire works well if you are looking for a rick colour scheme and to show luxury at a venue. Some of our most striking schemes have been with ivory chairs and a deep colour sash such as burgundy, aubergine or hunter green, and some of our most luxurious looks have come from the ivory being teamed with a lace sash.

Ivory chair cover hire has always been popular for corporate events in luxurious venues- it works well for the elegance of a small private dinner when teamed with a gold. Make an impression! The picture in this post shows a mix of gold and black sashes against the ivory – both look rich and give a feeling of luxury.

When using ivory covers for a wedding where the scheme is a mix of white and ivories it is normally cost effective to use the venues own white table linen. Using this white linen and then adding in ivory napkins continues an ivory and white theme perfectly. However if you would like ivory chair cover hire alongside ivory tablecloths we are able to provide these for you too.

There are two options  – sculptured chair covers and polycotton for our ivory chair cover hire and these can be found on the chair cover section of our website.

The best place to see examples of our full ivory chair cover hire service in action is on our Facebook page – here you will see rooms dressed in ivory and the great impact this gives.

Polycotton Chair Cover Hire

Make Believe Events are industry leaders in polycotton chair cover hire.

 

Polycotton Chair Cover HireMake Believe Events were established in 2009 and their first hire product was polycotton chair cover hire – so we really know our stuff!

We now offer a few different varieties of chair coves but polycotton chair cover hire is still the most popular! We now offer a stretch/sculptured chair cover (which is becoming very popular), damask covers and then a variety on the stretch style in ruched.

 

Polycotton chair cover hire is great for traditional venues – it offers a real feel of luxury. The loose base creates a softer look than that of sculptured, and if has a soft feel finish. This style is great for banqueting chairs in many venues as they have a standard banqueting chair or a cheltenham/bentwood chair and we have polycotton chair covers made specifically for these chairs. Every venue is unique and some have some very unique chairs too! For venues we have visited a number of times we have invested in custom measured and made covers – so always check to see if we have a polycotton chair cover that will fit! However, if we do not have a polycotton chair cover hire suitable for your venue we advise the ‘perfect fit solution’ which is the stretchy sculptured chair cover.

We offer a great value polycotton chair cover hire service!

We steam the seats of your chairs on site to avoid the creases that occur in transportation.

Our covers are available white (which is the most popular option for weddings) ivory and black. Ivory offers a softer look and we have matching tablecloths, linen and napkins to continue the look. Our black is striking and great for both weddings and corporate events – we again have matching table linen to create continuity throughout your event!

For more examples of our polycotton chair cover hire please visit our Facebook page, and to see pricing for our range visit our chair covers page (and also see the selection of chair sashes we have to team up with our polycotton chair cover hire!)
