I would say that you should leave it open and put something like the cake table or guest book table up there.  You could even put family photos on easils up there.

@RouleauLover: Are you having a head table?  Perhaps you could set the stage up for a head table, and your wedding cake table/candy buffet/ dessert table?  Are you having a DJ?

I’d be tempted to put a sweet faux-to booth up there, but if it’s going to be directly behind your head table like it is in the first photo, that might not work. 

If you’re planning to put the head table elsewhere or not having one though, it’s an idea.

I actually don’t mind the curtain, it seems to match the era of the building and makes a nice backdrop, rather than an odd hollow space.

Obviously, if you really don’t like it, then don’t listen to me, lol – especially if your colour theme is red, that just would not match!

This happened with my cousins venue. They decided to remove the curtain totally and put the head table up there. it looked great!

I vote for putting the head table up there too!

Also, I think it looks charming with the curtain! But it’s your wedding 😉

The curtain doesn’t bother me either.

You could project a monogram on the curtain

or use some wall washing lights and change the color

If you open the curtain, you could place screens across the front of the stage made of lattice, fabric,  old doors etc.

Or, you could project a favorite saying or poem on the back wall

Ok, My first thought was sweetheart table so everyone could see you. Head table works too. Are you gonna have a slide show? It would be really cool to rent a giant screen to have everyone watch projected. Is it at all possible in your budget to buy a ton of black and white taffeta or tule and just hang your own black and white curtains? I bought 100 yards of my colors on craigslist for PENNIES! I could see draping your own tule looking REALLY nice. or if its in your budget to drape a damask print down from the curtains.

I am having the same exact problem with my stage and the curtain clashing with my wedding colors… mainly because my wedding colors are most gold and green and the curtain is *of course* red! lol I don’t have the money to change it though so I’m just drawing attention away from it as much as possible. I’m using the stage lights provided to shine on us and having a lot of decor lower so they don’t look above us at the huge bright red curtain- I don’t know if it’ll work but it’s all I can do. I feel your pain though…. I would say just open the curtain and have your head table up there- I’ve seen a ton of weddings set up that way. =) I wish we could leave these curtains opened but it’s a huge stage and very ugly walls behind it lol.

(it’s bright red like the chairs when the lights are turned up)
