I am planning on doing some draping on the drop ceiling *with christmas lights* as well as draping around the head table and from shepherd hook to shepherd hook to line the aisles... Im looking at buying alot of this stuff... Tulle is about 1/3rd the price but are my guests going to be able to tell the difference.. or does it really matter?? suggestions

    I say go with the tulle. Save money where you can!

    I think the tulle also. Organza is a much stiffer fabric and will not drape as well. Your other option would be chiffon - very drapy but heavy.

    Working with the tulle will be much easier.

    Also - Check the fire codes about using fabric with lights as some of those little lights get hot.

    I thought that's what most people use is tulle, I am using white shimmer tulle- Love it!

    The toole will be beautiful. A lot of brides use it. It won't look cheap to the guests.

    Use tulle. Just be careful of the consistency you buy. I was planning on using organza b/c I too was concerned about the tulle looking cheap. But I couldn't find organza that didn't have a shimmer to it that wasn't cheap/stiff. I got my tulle at Hobby Lobby and I was very pleased with its consitency. Here's a couple of pics. I actually ran out of time and didn't get to do as much draping as I'd intended.

    Shannon that would be great... not really sure how much I need... we want to do the chairs... 17 rows of folding chairs on both sides, some on the arch and in the reception location.

    Tulle - I was in the same boat as LL (Hey girl, what ARE you doing here?? shouldn't you be somewhere with a drink that has a paper umbrella in it?!)

    Finding the right organza will be too much $$$
