So my colors are Malibu, Black and White.
I just found an AMAZING ballroom at a great price in the city I wanted (where we met). I’m ready to book but my only issue is that the stage has a big red and gold curtain which looks classy but definitely doesn’t go with my color scheme (and I don’t want to change my colors because I already have my sash for my dress which is Malibu and like the colors we picked for the BP). Any ideas how to work around that?
We’re only doing the reception in the ballroom. The ceremony will be in a separate church

Can they not take the curtain down? Or can you not having draping done over it

Here’s the ballroom. The red floor lights don’t have to be on. How can I make this work with my colors?

We can maybe drape other fabric over it….would that not look cheesy or weird?

They can’t take it down, no. They actually recently bought this building and the previous owners turned it into a ugly business building. The current owners tore away all the walls and everything to discover the old architecture and balcony and everything. The building is beautiful now but they don’t have the wall behind the curtain redone yet so it stays

No one but you will notice or care. Think about that before spending cash on something that really wont matter in the grand scheme of things.

Covering that curtain with a ribbon backdrop would cost a fortune. Ditto for fabric. You could use uplighting.
Failing that, instead of trying to hide it, make it a feature. Often when we try to hide something, it just makes it more noticeable anyhow.
You could project a monogram or picture onto the curtain, much like a vintage movie,

nestle: What is the color “malibu?”

nestle: The church where I got married has very red carpet. I have seen every color in that church from blue to watermellon pink to orange to brown. Not one looked bad. Stuff like drapes and carpet blend into the background and no one is going to pay too much attention to them. My suggest is to put the DJ or band in front of the curtains (which will look kind of cool anyway) They will have lights and equpiment that will block the curtains from being anyone’s focus. Most likely, they will just blend into the background.

I’m not sure what color Malibu” is, but unless it’s orange, the red curtain will be fine. Don’t worry about it.

JenGirl: Even Google doesn’t know what the color “malibu” is. After great deliberation, I think it is a color scheme and overall theme surrounding this:

I assume Malibu is a bright blue color? (David’s Bridal has one called that.) I think it looks great with red and not a single person will notice.
