Bunting Measurements for the venue

Bunting is a really great way of adding colour to the venue and is very popular, especially for weddings with a vintage theme.

Below are the places which we would suggest putting bunting, along with the measurements of bunting which you would need to provide. They include the 'swag' and a little extra for us to tie into place.
