Good morning ,
For $$ reasons my son and stb daughter in law asked to have their ceremony in an empty lot we own . There is a garage and some odds and ends from the one neighbor we are trying to hide . About 50 ft maybe more . The only idea she can come up with is hanging dollar store shower curtans on string from tree to tree . As we all know the string will sag it will never work . As you can tell its an extreme budget and i love her but she is not easy to discuss things with. If I could come up with something decent and set it up then show her it might help . Any ideas are GREATFULLY APPRECIATED .
Thank you , Loriann

Lots of plastic lattice on Amazon. Check it out there and then price it locally in discount stores.
Can be used “as is” or decorated with fake vines and flowers.
Much MUCH better than shower curtains.

You can get away with using fabric shower curtains and making it look nice it just depends. I think it will depend on what you are using to reinforce it. Maybe some PVC piping or something.

You can try willow fencing https://www.remodelista.com/posts/outdoors-willow-garden-fencing/ but honestly if you’re not helping paying for the wedding I think you should just let her do her thing. Maybe instead of worrying about it, just make sure that you have a ceremony space that draws the eye away from the neighbors yard.

Wire is a bit stronger than string.
She could also hang paper lights or tissue Pom pons from the trees at different heights. It wouldn’t totally disguise the bg but would be pretty.
She could do a string of hanging pom pons or origami cranes, ribbon, or bunting.

Loriann1 : I agree with a PP, wire cord will hold weight fine.
Have you thought about using white military netting? In person, it looks quite nice because of the “fluttering” effect it gives off. I couldn’t find a great photo, but maybe this will give you an idea.

honeybee16 : so glad to see even wedding sites have judgemental people . For some odd reason I do not think I ever said I was not helping pay for the wedding . Thank you

I truly appreciate all of the help with all my heart . Thank you
Yet I feel you have given me great ideas to work with . And will remove myself from this site .
It truly just takes one person you dont even know to make you feel less of yourself even though they do not know the situation.
God Bless , Loriann.

Loriann1 : I don’t think I was judgemental at all! There’s a saying here on the bee that is “no pay, no say” which is why I said that if you are not helping her pay for the wedding then leave it alone. Brides already have enough pressure to make the day perfect and being on a tight budget definitely adds to the stress. I was recommending letting it go and just focus on the ceremony space instead of putting more stress on her by telling her you think her idea will not work and giving her more costly alternatives.
Now that you have since mentioned that you are helping out financially I think you can definitely make your opinions known and help her come up with different ideas. I think the military netting would look phenominal. Much more elegant than the fencing idea that I had.

Loriann1 : I would look at renting some trees from a nursery for a screen. I have done this for a parade float and it was very reasonable.
