I would do one or the other either the draping or the lanterns…I think it might be a bit distracting to have them both. I think it would be much prettier just to do all lanterns at varying heights!

I love the openess with the high ceilings…..the draping will bring the ceilings down and take away a bit of that nice openess it has. I think the lanters will keep it nice and open and also create a beautiful focal point!

@jenilynevette:  I would agree with the PP that lanterns and draping might be a bit much but I like the concept of either or. Especially with your reception space. I also found a few ideas on google that kind of goes along the lines of what you are thinking of I think.

@jenilynevette:  You are lucky that you have the vaulted ceilings and beams which makes decorating much easier especially with draping. I like the draping with spacing between because it makes the space look much more open and airy. The first picture is a great usage of both elements! You could also use colored lanterns that match your wedding colors! I think maybe if your budget allows it, you should maybe use chiffon or organza to drape? I would call rental companies around you and see if they rent stuff like that out. 🙂

I love the ceilings! I wouldn’t drape them at all. It would look pretty to have the lanterns over the dance floor, it will also help separate the space. But I don’t think you should spend the money on draping with a ceiling like that!

@jenilynevette:  Ah that sucks. Here are some links for draping kits online, they look a bit pricey so not sure if this is within your budget.
