A few months ago, I was thinking about having a blush wedding. Now that the venue and colors are set, I’m trying to figure out should I add draping or not. Our official colors are navy (I love cornflower but navy pops more) and canary yellow.
Here’s our official venue. I know, it’s just meh but that’s the beauty of it. We can create something special in the room.
Now what should I do? Should I just add uplighting or add both? I’m not too keen about the wood part of the room but if it’s a dark color to begin with, it wouldn’t matter.
Here’s what I have in mind:
(with only ceiling draping)
(with only uplighting)
(uplighting and lanterns)
Any thoughts of how to make an ordinary room into something amazing?

I really like the wall draping (and the color of the uplighting in that picture!). What a stunning venue!

@MsAmandaAnn: I know. I’m gonna check how much will it cost for the draping. I’m not sure if it can be done because of the lights on the wall but we’ll see. I want my guests to be awe by it… they won’t even think it’s actually a fire hall.
(YES, I SAID IT! MY VENUE IS IN A FIRE HALL! )

I like the draping slightly better, but I don’t think it matters that much if it’s going to be a significant difference in cost.
I’ve never even been to a wedding with any uplighting, so the fact of having uplighting at all is enough to impress guests.

Definitely draping (wall)!

I hope we can afford it. Uplighting isn’t too bad but drapes can be pricey.

I don’t think draping would be possible. Because there’s lights on the walls, it would be tough to add drapes to cover that. Plus, I really think it’s gonna be very expensive. I’m trying to figure out how to decorate it.

@BeeRod527: I really like the uplighting and lanterns. The lanterns depending on how you decorate your tables and such. I think it adds something to it. However if you’re having a very elegant / proper wedding… uplighting on it is =)

I love the drapping on the walls and the uplighting with lanterns.

When my oldest daughter was married 2 years ago, her venue had UGLY walls. I wanted to drape the whole room, but that was WAY too expensive, so I decided to have only the wall behind the head table draped. I figured since that was where the bride and groom would be seated, it made the most sense. Worked out great and looked beautiful!

Wall draping + Uplighting. I can’t imagine it’ll be cheap though..?

With that said, how’s the venue? Would I only need drapes towards that stage and the back? Should I keep the trees or not?
