I’m holding my reception in a simple park setting with a nice gazebo and some trees a little ways away. The only problem is that the site for the reception is not only right next to the parking lot (ugly, but nothing I can do to change that) but it also has a medium size chain link fence surrounding the rather small site. It’s far enough from the main site to not interfere too much, but the chainlink fence appears in many of the pictures I’ve seen of other weddings at this site.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can hid this eyesore of a fence? I’m worried anything I do to decorate it would just draw attention to it (plus I have no idea how to make a chain link fence look pretty). I’m not sure how I could set up anything freestanding to hide it. Help!

hmmmm it makes me think of christmas decorations… planys and lights perhaps? drape some fabric? maybe you can do a test run to see if it makes it better or worse.

Rental companies will have lattice you can rent that will hide almost anything. We had to set up a makeshift kitchen area for our caterer and they covered the whole area with lattice boards.
I don’t think you should waste your efforts or money in hiding the entire fence. But, identify the areas that will be in the background of your pictures and focus on those areas.
Once you have the lattice set up, you can put a couple of tall potted plants/trees up to dress it up.

you could also cover it with the rolls of bamboo type fencing or blinds that you can buy at the hardware store or at places like Ikea. It might not be worth the expense if you can’t use it again at your home, but I know it’s a tip a lot of landscape desingers use to hide less desirable areas.
