What’s your wedding style and colors? That would help me if I came across something in my own backdrop search!

It actually looks like the last two are wall treatments instead of hanging sheets.

Try Purl Soho or Ikea. They have great fabric. I can’t remember Purl’s website, just google them.

Caden Lane fabric is usually super expensive/overpriced, btw. That’s what the 1st pic in Mrs. Spring post is I believe.

Pottery Barn’s "Ogee" patterned fabric is really pretty.  They had it on sale by the yard through their website not too long ago, but I see that it’s no longer available.  Maybe you can check with a local store to see if they still carry it.

It’s pictured here on the duvet and pillow shams.

There are a handful of options on eBay right now.  I just searched "pink damask fabric yard" and a bunch of stuff came up.  I tried it with "green" and "brown" as well, which yielded a couple of nice options, including a soft sage version of the Ava Rose pattern (Mrs. Spring’s second photo).

Good luck!

I found a great gray/black damask tapestry (108"x90") on sale for $10 at Urban Outfitters — you might try looking there for photobooth backdrops.  Often the standing stores have different items on sale than the website, but the website has some cute tapestries too:

None of them are damask, but there are a few cute ones in pinkish hues for $25-36:

If you sew a hem along with bottom with an opening to inset a tube, you’d get that clean, straight  effect along the bottom.  I am not sure how you’re planning on hanging this, but you could do the same to the top.  Pretty fabrics!

Have you heard of http://www.spoonflower.com ? They print custom fabric (very affordable) Maybe you could find some fun clip art patterns of ornate frames (?) or a section of a damask pattern and blow the scale up + bright colors…could give you a great personal effect at a low cost! 

Or, check out Amy Butler’s fabrics…I don’t know if the color schemes would fit your palette, but she has lots of great patterned fabrics at ok prices.

Good luck!
