Drapery holds a beautiful power when used as wedding decor. It has the ability to simultaneously hide anything you want concealed, such as an unwanted door or wall color, as well as bring a heightened sense of splendor to a space, giving it an otherworldly magic and wonder. Plus, you can find whatever fabric and hue best coordinates with your wedding palette and theme. Just hear what the talented Geri Sims has to say about drapery, and we know you’ll be as head-over-heels for it as we are!

Drapery Softens A Room
When you walk in that venue, ballroom or tent for the first time, you start imagining yourself there in a beautiful wedding dress with family and friends. We know there are some locations that need nothing at all, and then there are other locations that need help transforming them into that magical place. Drapery in a room covers up all those undesired doors, windows or wall colors and creates a fresh look.

I don’t know of many brides who do not have a budget in mind, and we are more than happy to work within your budget if possible. Most of my basic brides stay within $1,000.00. What will this get you? Most of the time this will be a combination of backdrop, stage carpet kit including steps, ceiling drape and even a chandelier. Once the room in discussed or seen… then the process of giving you ideas starts. From there we discuss budget and realistically what you can afford. There is always something we can do for you… I have 25 years of ideas to share.

What Do I Need From The Bride In Order To Give A Price
I need only a few things:
Size of the Room (example: 50’ x 80’ with 14’ ceilings)
Pictures if possible or the link to a website with pictures
Contact information from the bride to discuss ideas
Location of the venue
An idea of what you have in mind or pictures. I will even be happy to look at your Pinterest board!
