    I would look  into the cost of that many big balloons and helium. It can get pricy.

    @leecy87:  Haha, I’m glad to help spark interest! Though, since you’re looking to decorate inside, I’m a little hesitant for you to use that inspiration photo, mainly because i’m afraid that balloons will pop haha.  It feels like more of an outside thing to me! I say, stick with the single balloons!

    If you look at the photo with the balloons, the fabric isnt too far off the ground. I’m having trouble picturing how it would work in a room that didnt have a very (very) tall ceiling. And plus, your venue has those really nice wooden beams and I would be worried about them getting hidden. The first picture looks soooo pretty and the fabric works around the beams!

    ETA I see that it costs $900 for that! Wow! Are you sure you cant do that yourself with a really long pole or something?!

    ETA #2- I now see that you cant do it yourself with a really long pole.

    @leecy87:  Hm. Well what are you doing for the rest of your decor (Chairs, tables, flowers?) And are you doing that dance floor thing? I ask because the longer I look at that first picture, the more I like the venue without the fabric. It kind of looks too bold for my taste and the room looks a tad cluttered. I really prefer simplicity, but thats just me 🙂

    If it helps: I think  your venue will look spectacular  without the draping. I love the tall ceilings and exposed beams!!! I agree that the draping is not worth $900!!!

    The draping makes the venue look very elegant, although $900 for that is a little bit too steep…i’m not a big fan of the ballon idea on a wedding, it just reminds me of a birthday party or something lol

    @lolita_:  It looks like the doors have been redone and drapes added to them/ or taken away, I think it also looks more elegant with out the 900 drapes from ceiling. Almost too much. but I think I am more simple as well

    It is not worth $900 none of your guests will know it was even an option. I know it’s hard to let go of things that look beautiful online but some things really just aren’t worth the extreme costs
