shakeyourhips:  You could use colored sheer fabric in your palette. You are not stuck with white.

or bring in your palette with paper

You could also hang curtain lights behind the fabric if it’s an evening wedding!

I think it could! The lights I got on Amazon were only 20 bucks. I’m not sure if they’ll be our main focal point, but we’re going to use them on a wall at the reception. Meanwhile, we’ve been enjoying them on our porch!

I think the ivory curtain idea is lovely!

This is the one I DIYed for my indoor wedding. If you’re into it, I can give you some pointers on how it was made.

elibas:  shakeyourhips:  Sure. Well for the sequin backdrop, I sewed a rectangular sequin tablecloth into a curtain (just one seam across the top), because it was way cheaper for the same amount of identical fabric than if it were called a ‘backdrop’. The frame part is a pvc pipe apparatus, which was made just like this one http://www.dandelionsonthewall.com/2012/04/diy-photography-backdrop-stand-pvc-pipe.html?m=1 but bigger, and with two identical frames placed one in front of the other. It’s all one piece, with the front and back frames attached to the same base pieces and attached again at one point midway up each side. The front curtains aren’t even sewn, they’re just two very long pieces of sheer fabric (from the $2/metre clearance section of the fabric store) folded in half over the top on each side and draped over the front bar. The greenery pieces are just artficial garlands from a Michael’s sale with some of my extra artficial orchids pinned on, and the little bouquet at the top is just a posy that I made with other leftover flowers and taped on with hockey stick tape. The greenery curtain ties were also attached with stick tape haha. It was just what was on hand.

Does that help?

There was a bee on here who did a DIY paper flower wall, but I can’t seem to find the post. A quick google found this though: https://poshtartparties.wordpress.com/tag/paper-flower-backdrop/

I think the draping has a really lovely effect, but it would depend on how it looks with a gap between the ceiling and the start of the drape
