Celebrating 10 years of Make Believe Events with fantastic new hire products

In homage to the #tenyearchallenge hashtag, and celebrating 10 years since Make Believe Events decorated their first wedding, the company is launching 10 brand new products for your wedding!


Make Believe Events decorated its very first wedding in May 2009 at Glenbervie House Hotel, and co-founder Heather McGowan remembers it well.

“The nerves leading up to that first set up were probably the worst I have felt within the last 10 years. It was a small wedding, with a simple order of chair covers and purple sashes. I think I had more nerves that day than the bigger weddings we do now, with hundreds of details to perfect and guests to impress!

I think confidence comes with experience and knowledge, and also a real passion for what we do.”

Make Believe Events are celebrating their 10th birthday with the launch of 10 new products for 2019. Take a look… 



This popular 2018 trend goes into 2019 just as strong. With three options – gold, silver and rose gold – there’s one to suit every style and colour scheme.

Hang these in your venue to create a sparkly backdrop for those selfies – hello Instagram!



The team at Make Believe Events get together regularly to talk over new product ideas, that this one was a favourite for owner Heather.

“I knew it had to be one of our 10 products this year. I love the impact that a tall centrepiece has over the room, and these are just show-stopping,” she says.

Add hanging tealight holders to create a dreamy and romantic feel.



Archways are one of Make Believe Events most requested ceremony products, so it’s no surprise that two feature on the list.

The cherry blossom archway is the perfect partner to the cherry blossom trees lining the aisle.

Get the most out of your products by moving the archway from your ceremony behind your top table for your wedding breakfast.



Designed in Australia, these are still firmly under wraps!

The signs are all about injecting some Scottish patter to your day, with slogans like ‘Aye do!’ and ‘Slainte’ in the collection.

These would be a great addition to your reception, whether it’s for colour in the photos or to initiate some great photo opportunities; your photographer will have a lot of fun with these.

You can vote for the wording of the third sign over on the Make Believe Events Facebook page – what pure dead brilliant Scottish saying would you like to see in lights?



Make Believe Events stock a great range of mercury glassware in gold and silver already, with products spanning tealight holders, candle stands and vases.

The addition of rose gold to this range was a move that just made sense, by taking a big style trend and a popular colour and adding it together.



You can already get the lime wash variant of these chairs and now, you can add some opulence to your decor with gold ones.

The chairs come with an ivory seat pad as standard, but this can be changed up on special request.



The response to this new product has been overwhelming, and it’s no surprise – she’s a beauty!

The structural piece commands attention by itself, but can have hanging candles, flowers or fairylights and draping added to make it a unique ceremony backdrop.



After many requests, Make Believe Events have brought these gorgeous stands to the product list, although it wasn’t an easy one to source.

“This was a worldwide search for this product. After samples being sent from all corners of the world, we settled on a supplier in Canada,” says Heather. “We look for the best quality and value, so we can offer a great product at a low hire price for our customers.”

The stands can be teamed with flower arrangements or candles, and the potential is limitless. They’re set to be a huge product trend for 2019.



Make Believe Events offer a great value ceremony package which includes lanterns, aisle runner and top of the aisle ceremony decoration, and these rustic rope hurricane vases have been added to the hire collection to offer more selection to the package.

You can also hire them as a stand-alone product, and they work brilliantly for aisle decoration, decor to staircase, outside areas or rustic centrepieces.
