Hi! So we are being gifted a wedding tent from a rental company my fiancé does business with. I really love "open air" tents and definitely want one.
Most tent companies don't want to drape another companies tent. It doesn't make sense financially to do rent a tent from a company that will drape it if we're getting a 40x80 tent for free. So, I'll be doing it myself.
SO! Have any of you DIY brides done this? Does anyone have any tips? Are their companies that rent chiffon for voile that you've used? (I haven't been able to find too many in the LA area). Buying seems to be the cheaper option (surprisingly) but what the heck do I do with the fabric afterwards?? Any tips or suggestions are appreciated!
Also, I am fully aware this is way harder than just renting from a company that will do it is easier. I am more than capable of doing this myself even though I know its not an easy task. A lot of people have just tried to tell me not to do it myself and at this point I am ready for the challenge lol.
