Okay, So we recently booked a tenting company to tent our outdoor wedding.
They quoted us for two 20 X 40 High peek Marquee tents to join together.
We are trying to drap the ceilings ourself because our decorators are booked already!
I have no Idea where to start, How much fabric to get or how to even do it. I have some ideas of what I want. But this is so last minute and needs figured ASAP.
If anyone has any idea how much fabric to get or if you have done it before please help me figure this out!

Why not have the tent company do it? If you’re last minute, and trying to figure out something like this, then it seems easier, and possibly cheaper, to just have them do it. I’ve seen amazing pictures with just white draping and uplighting.

Check with the tent company. I think draping generally has to be done at the time the tent is put up and is usually done by the same people that put the tent up. In fact some places require that they do it for liability purposes. So check with them and if they let you do it yourself, maybe they would have some direction about how much fabric and the like. Also, draping is quite expensive. Another option I’ve seen used a lot is pretty colored lighting that shines up on the inside of the white tent. Sometimes they can even use paterns like a monogram.

The tent company said that they do custom draping but it will cost more then the ttent itself will.
Here are pictures of what I want to do to the tent, I just dont know how much materail to buy Or how to hook the fabric to the tent structure

I like with a few zip ties, and string you could pull it off.
