So my venue is LOVELY but my walk is going to have me exiting out a building, and walking parallel with everyone seated at the ceremony before I do a U turn into the center of the aisle. I’ll be a good distance away when I exit the building though, and I thought it might look lovely to hang some streamers to partially block the wedding party during that long walk. BUT I don’t believe there are any trees I can connect the streamers to.
I wanted to make a “wall” like the one in the picture. But what should I connect the streamers to in order to hold them up without trees?
My first thought was a tall Shepard’s Hook, but those can sometimes be expensive.

Find an inexpensive arbor (like you would find in a garden) and hang them from that!

Omg I saw your post this morning and was stumped, but look what I just saw on a wedding blog!
The bride says her husband made two “teepees” out of copper piping and strung a rope with dangling ribbons between them. Perfect!

You could borrow two (or more) patio umbrella stands depending on how long you want the ribbon wall to be.
Insert a long wooden pole (like a closet rod) and secure it in place standing up in the umbrella holder.
Insert screw eyes into the top of the wooden pole and string a wire cable between them. Hang your ribbons from that.

@MsVoyageur: I’ll have to look into the price of those copper pipes

@Fantastagirl: And then after I could use it on my garden 🙂 not sure I’ll find an inexpensive one though 🙁

what creative ideas!!! on the cheap, i was thinking tent poles. you can wrap any pole with the actual streamers so you wouldn’t have to worry about the color.
anything tall would work… painted ladders for instance!
or rent 2 fake potted trees
you can also rent arbors.
