Talk to the people installing the ceiling drapery for you – I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they could do the lights for you as well.  If they can’t, they’ll probably have a good idea of where you can get them from.  If it’s feasible to hang drapery, string lights shouldn’t be a problem!

sammi11jo:  Depending on what is more cost effective,more drapery, or more lights,  I would consider adding more draping panels to fill in the ceiling  a bit more. It will take several light strings to fill in the space that one width of tulle would cover.

Because it is a suspended ceiling, you can easily hang almost anything from the ceiling. I suggest something like this, with a center piece to anchor the lights. If you have enough ceiling height, you could hang a chandelier in the center,  instead.
