Hey Bees! I’ve been thinking a lot about the decor of our venue and it just feels stale to me.
I would love for it to have the feel of our theme – “1940/50 Hollywood Glam” I love the look of the pictures below but can’t seem to find anything like it without spending $10k. Any ideas where I can find something cheaper?

BlueRC: Whether or not you can DIY, and if so, how much it will cost varies so much from venue to venue. It depends on what is already in place and what you are allowed to attach to the walls and ceiling. You may have to creat a pipe and drape frame for the backdrop but that’s not very expensive.
You may have to scale down from what you see in pics online. Rather than have a wall of beaded curtains, you may need to have 3 beaded curtains and 4 sections of draping.
Have you looked at http://www.shopwildthings.com They have beaded curtains , ceiling draping etc in the extra long lengths that most venues require.
For the sheer fabric draping, always check http://www.adhuntr.com
to see what other brides are selling, before you look at paying retail.
Then check thrift shops for old sheer curtains, if you don’t need extra long fabric.
