Ideas for your wedding from the Wedding Expo! How To Adorn Your Reception with Draping

Decor for your wedding

Draping is the way to go if you want to add a touch of elegance to your reception. Drape fabric from the ceiling or walls to create a glamorous space that will wow your guests. Here are some tips on achieving the perfect draped look for your reception!

·      Choose The Right Fabric

Silk, chiffon, and organza are all excellent choices for draping. Avoid heavier fabrics like velvet, as they can be difficult to work with and may not stay in place.

 

·      Consider The Colors of Your Wedding When Choosing Fabric

Opt for fabrics in colors that complement your wedding’s color palette. A professional wedding planner and rental company can help you here and with pretty much any other aspect of wedding planning.

·      Get Creative with Your Lighting

Lighting is key when it comes to creating a beautiful reception space. Use up lighting, spotlights, and twinkle lights to create a unique look that will make your guests feel like they are attending a truly magical event!

·      Drape Fabric from The Ceiling or Walls Using Hooks or Command Strips

Ensure the fabric is secure so it doesn’t come down during the reception.

·      Use Draping to Create An Intimate Atmosphere

If you want to create a more intimate atmosphere at your reception, use draping to divide the space into smaller sections. This is a great way to make your guests feel like they are at their private party.

·      Use Fabric Swags to Create an Elegant Look

Drape fabric over doorways or windows, or hang it from chandeliers or other light fixtures.

·      Use Draping to Highlight Your Food and Drink Stations

If you want to really wow your guests, use draping to highlight your food and drink stations. This is a great way to make these areas more visually appealing and help them stand out from the rest of the room!

·      Don’t Forget About the Dance Floor!

The dance floor is often one of the most popular places at a reception, so make sure it looks its best. Use fabric and lights to create a stunning display that will get your guests up and moving.

·      Get Creative with Your Color Scheme

When it comes to wedding décor, there are no rules! So, don’t be afraid to get creative with your color scheme. Use fabric and lights to create a unique look that reflects your style and the overall theme of your big day.

·      Use Draping To Add Height To Your Décor

If you want to add a bit of height to your reception décor, use draping to create an eye-catching display. It’s a great way to make the space feel more open and airy, and it will also help your guests feel like they are in an extraordinary place.

·      Have Fun with It!

Remember, your wedding day is all about you and your spouse-to-be. So, don’t be afraid to have fun with your décor! Use fabric and lights to create a look that reflects your personality and the overall tone of your big day!

With these tips, you’ll be able to create the perfect draped look for your reception. Draping is a great way to add a touch of elegance and transform your space into something exceptional!
