This is the ceremony site…how do I take this…
and turn it into this….
How do you even get fabric to stay up there?? If anyone has experience..please help!! I showed the florist this pic, and she said it would cost about $300-400!! I want to try to do this so I can save money, since me and the groom are running low on funds!!

How far apart are the pillars? A tension rod-either curtain or shower- is the easiest way to hang the fabric.
Otherwise you need to be able to insert scew eye hooks and string a wire between them.
Sometimes you can find great buys on sheer curtain panels. Sometimes you find a better deal on sheer fabric and would need to make a rod pocket yourself, through which to thread the rod or the wire. You will need fabric or curtain panels 2.5-3 times the width of the bar or wire to get the fullness you will need.
You will not be able to have huge floral arrangements like the pic if you are on a budget. You will however be bto find something to go with your theme and colors to use instead.
Ditto for the chandeliers. You can find a small chandelier from $25 and up on Ebay.
You could also try your local Habitat for Humanity Restore and see if they would rent you a chandelier if they have any donated at the time you need one.

I think you can probably find fake flowers to recreate that look. It will probably take ages to put together and you don’t want that stress in the few days before your wedding. If you get fakies you can put it together slowly over a few weeks, less stress and you can tinker with it until it looks exactly right! A few big satin bows/ribbons would probably help fill out the floral arrangement as well.
It looks beautiful, btw 🙂
