Does anyone have any affordable suggestions for dressing up my reception venue? It's in the middle of a nature preservation, surrounded by beautiful natural foliage and trees, has two sets of french doors and lots of windows. There are some adjustable (vertical) hooks, but I'm not sure how to use them without potentially chipping the paint on the walls. Thanks in advance!
View Quoted Comment The event manager said for some reason the paint comes off very easily, so we can't use adhesive which is why they have the adjustable hooks.
The ceremony will be on the same property, there will be an outdoor chapel built by our wedding date. I'm thinking the ceremony will start at 4 p.m., we'll take photos during cocktail hour and have dinner around 6.
Truthfully I’m not sure how expensive it is but I feel like drapery and lighting are two impactful things that make a space feel like an “event.” Just because they’re so large scale as opposed to lots of small decor. I’m not sure what look you’re going for, just an idea! 🙂
I was just about to suggest this as well! Doing this would add so much to the space!
I know Lings Moments has some drapery like this, but idk if they'd be long enough. You could always go to a craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels, or even Amazon! Fairy lights paired with it would look really dreamy and romantic!
Uplighting will help tremendously. Also, sometimes those hooks depending on how their installs don’t always hold a lot of weight, so maybe you could do twinkle lights. Draping also goes along way but depending on how short the ceiling height is it may make the room feel small.
