I think it’s really up to you – you could pay your florist a bit extra or could perhaps charge on of your groomsmen to do it. You could delegate the job to whoever you feel can handle it! You could also see if there’s someone at your venue who can take care of something like that for you – I know our venue has offered to put up and decorate an arch over the aisle for us!

I love the draping! I’d definintely talk to the ceremony site first. They must have a co-ordinator… maybe they can get it set-up or else pass you along to someone who will do it for you! Getting the draping right is probably harder than it looks- so I would leave it to a professional! 🙂

Beautiful location with or without the fabric though! I love it 🙂

Check with the venue first.  Do you already know where you are getting the draping?  If you are renting it the rental place might also offer installation.

Yea you should first make sure its ok with your venue first. But then there are probably places in your area who specialize in doin decor like this…hit the web and check it out. Or a bridal show.

I used to work in catering and the florists usually took care of stuff like this.

I found a girl on craigslist who is trying to start her own wedding planning business and she is setting up/tearing down my ceremony and reception sites for a very reasonable price.  Just a thought!

I would ask the venue coordinator about it, and then ask the florist.

my venue is doing it. Thank god. I used to work at a rose garden doing weddings and the couples rented tables/chairs/audio stuff through us, we set up, and decor was either done by the florist or the family.

I think it all a matter of logistics and how you are planning out your day. My reception will be at a beautiful outdoor venue under a tent, but they dont really have an experienced coordinator since weddings are not thier main thing.  I plan on doing alot of the decor myself.  Either  the day before, or early that morning.  Everything needs to be planned very well so its not chaotic, but I think it can be done.  If your like me, and dont plan on sitting in a salon chair the entire morning of your wedding, then spending a little time at the venue the day before or morning of wont ruin your day! Good luck!
