We need a quick decision today on whether or not we want the ceiling draping for our NYE wedding that is coming up quick!
Our venue has big tall ceilings and we had a friend get married here this past summer and it looked gorgeous of course with the full draping! The only thing i’m not that comfortable with is the price!
It would be:
$200 for just behind the head table
$400 for head table and half room
$600 for head table and full room! Holy crap!
Now sometimes I think it should just be a go big or go home haha but idk what to do and neither does FI!
We have the money….it’s just it’s $600!! Is that worth it!?
here is our actual venue and example of what it would look like:
I need opinions please 🙂

@laurel946: A bit hard to tell with the small images but I think the half room draping looks best.

Is there a way to post large images? It’s hard to see.
I’m used to draping that’s more full…is that an option? That triagle thing seems like it would be distracting in pictures.
The venue in my area that is always drapped:

Here’s a bigger image of the full draping from their shutterfly account! The head table draping would just be whats behind the head table (they still drape the actual table regardless)
Hopefully that helps 🙂

A different angle of the full. I can’t find any pics of the half…I’m assuming just take the three drapes on the very right side of the photograph off since they go to the back of the room.

Do you have a picture of your venue.. maybe it doesn’t even need draping?
For the price I would either just drape the head table, or purchase the fabric to drape it myself [we are draping ours ourselves].

@jenilynevette: The pictures listed are our actual venue 🙂
Here is a plain picture of no draping:

@laurel946: I say get the draping. I’m paying $1200 to drape the tent for our 150 guest wedding. My reasoning is because 70% of the photos taken will be in or near the reception tent and I can’t deal with seeing an ugly ceiling in my wedding pics forever. Plus I think it warms up and softens a boxy room.

@laurel946: Gotcha! I really like the draping from the picture with the purple tablecloths.. it looks full and lush.. the other one looks bland and not full at all.
If you have the room in your budget, I would go with the kind of draping in the first picture, but I wouldn’t pay the price for the 2nd [they look like two differant fabrics].

I’d say go big or go home. I think if you only do it behind the head table, it might look kind of weird that the draping just stops. If you can afford it and your FI is onboard, go for it! But $600 is a lot of money to spend on something that you will likely not care about on the actual day (like me when I really wanted special chairs. We didn’t get them and I’m so glad I didn’t waste the money because I never would have noticed!).

Go big or go home! I like the full draping.

@Christy42213: I know, that’s why it’s a hard decision haha as you can see, our chairs are ugly…BUT I don’t care haha even chair covers wouldn’t make them look good!
I’m sitting here thinking, will I care about the ceiling? But when we stepped into our friend’s reception at the same place we were like “awww this is so cool!” haha really helped the atmosphere…

@laurel946: Personally, I don’t particularly like the draping on the walls. I prefer wall draping to look full like in @Mrs. Mink:‘s photo. But I love the draping on the ceiling. Is that an option?
