Mostly just a vent:
WWHHYYYYY is it so hard to rent a ceremony backdrop under $700 in my area?
We tried to make our own, but it was an epic fail and continues to be a sore spot that has just been sitting in my living room lol.
This is the most annoying thing. I have literally been looking for 6 months.
Our venue needs one to break up the photos (there is a HHUUGGEEE mirror where we are having the ceremony) but I am tempted to say F-orget it and do nothing.

arriaza415 : there are plenty of easy peasy DIY backdrops that involve little more than hanging up a curtain and some string lights. What exactly did you have in mind?

Have you approached theatrical rental companies – set or prop rental houses? Anything with “wedding” in the name is going to charge more, but a theatrical rental house may have what you’re looking for at a much lower cost, even if it’s just pipe and drape. Worth investigating anyway.
