    @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:

    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].

    @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.

    @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?
