I booked my caterer yesterday and we got a quote from her on draping our high ceilings at the venue. She quoted us:
White fabric lighted ceiling draping with alternate open lights.
Chandelier in center.
Set up and tear down $250.00
Sub Total $1100.00
6% Sales Tax 60.00
Deposit required 25% $290.00
this would be for 4 drapes of fabric and 4 strings of lights from the center to the corners of the room. The ceiling is 22 feet high so they have to use a lift. Has anyone else used a decorator just for the ceiling… How much did you pay?

Maybe it’s a regional thing but I had drapery in the ceremony and in the reception and had a chuppah in the lobby area all for $600 and he threw in a few extras at no extra charge. It seems a little excessive to me but that’s just me…

Agree, I guess it depends what part of the country you’re in. I was quoted $1200 on a similar sounding draping at a country club, and as low as $500 for a totally different, but just as pretty, venue.

OMG well I got quoted almost $4000!!! when we were scouting a venue we ended up not choosing. We were using a few more drapes I think ours was 8 instead of 4 but still… $4000!!!! Maybe try to shop around though because who knows that could be a little high. Just check it out and see 🙂

I got the number for another company that does the draping at the theater too. They were putting up drapes when I went to visit yesterday. I’ll see what they quote me!

@MrsB-to-Be: That is crazy! Seriously, for taht cost it’s like they don’t really want to do it! These are the wedding costs and things that you don’t even think about beforehand, then you’re left wondering, “Do I need/want it?”. Ugh, I hate how all these places take advantage of brides!
@HappilyEverAfter54: Let us know how it goes! Now that you mention tht it’s in a theatre, I”m super curious to see what it would look like.
