Hey ladies! I have a question, I am thinking of having the wedding at Future Mother-In-Law place in the common room. Well, they have plain white walls, and for the ceremony I’d like it to look a little nicer. We may just go to a chapel, but it is half hr away and costs 600 for an hr and then I’ll probably have to pay the photographer mileage 😛 I can get a minister for 100 so I am hoping there is a way to dress up the place for as little money as possible. We just have way too much going on this year financially and I am trying to cut costs without making it feel like a drab wedding. Any thoughts? Just trying to think of a plan B, lol.

What about sheer fabric draping – hard to describe what I’m thinking but start at the corner and then have it drape every foot or so then bring it back up to the ceiling then have it drape again a foot later and so on all around the room?

Do you have engagement photos or family pictures that you can display? You could get some inexpensive frames (or borrow!!) and hang them up around the room.

My reception room walls are simmilar (it was free). Ugly cinder block white walls. I got some sheer gossamer fabric (stumps party. com for $20ish) in my colors and am going to drape it along the walls to dress it up a little more. I’m having mine draped from the top of the ceiling down to the floor and pinched in the middle kind of like drapes along one wall to make it look a little nicer. Maybe you could do something similar but on the side of an alter (if your having one) drape fabric like gossamer or tulle from the ceiling to the floor (Also kind of depends what wall your going to have as your main area for the ceremony). Or if you know anyone with a garden trellis or arch (can rent arch at Hobby Lobby) I’ve seen lots of people use those as a nice background against a plain wall to dress up the ceremony a little bit. If these options don’t do it for you hanging engagment pics would be cute like veggie rachel suggested. Good luck in whatever you decide. I’m sure you can make it look cute with some DIY inspiration and help. You’d be amazed at what you can make look pretty.

Thanks for the ideas ladies. I was thinking of fabric pinched and photos as you all mentioned. Talked to Fiancee and he says we are going to the chapel, lol, but like I said this is back up plan in case things go wrong or budget just isn’t there.
This place is free that’s why I am kind of thinking of it. Like I told him, just you and me that’s all I need! I’ll write the ideas down and try and find some places here for cheap fabric. Thank you again!

Sometimes the best way to deal with a feature you don’t like is to not draw attention to it. Plain white walls are not necessarily a negative.
I would just draw attention to the other details in your decor.
