Choosing the Perfect Wedding Drapes

Posted by LO on 7/26/2019 to Decorating Ideas and Tips
wedding drapes

There are tons of ways to make that special day even more special. The aesthetics of your wedding are a huge factor, though granted, the spiritual significance of the day is of utmost importance as well. With roughly 1/3 of all weddings in the United States taking place in a religious institution, the way a wedding is decorated can either complement a religious setting or make a more secular setting still have a powerfully ethereal feel. Wedding drapes are a great way to make sure your wedding has the flavor it needs to leave a lasting impression for all who attend.

What Is a Pipe and Drape Wedding Canopy?

At its core, a pipe and drape wedding canopy is a simple way to add class to your wedding. The use of elegant fabric brings a sense of style to the day that looks as great in pictures as it does in people’s memories. In a typical pipe and drape wedding canopy there are four vertical pipes, called uprights. These go on top of four flat steel floor plates, more commonly referred to as “bases”. The canopy then has horizontal pipes, known as drape support rods or crossbars, that set the width of all sides and are the pipes from which the drapes are hung. These components comprise the framework of a pipe and drape wedding canopy assembly. Added to this pipe and base structure are the drapes themselves, which are most often a lighter weight, sheer fabric (such as Voile).

It doesn’t take long to get a canopy set up. Typically, it can be done in around 10 minutes, depending on experience with pipe and drape, the number of helpers setting up, etc. But even if it takes a bit longer, the whole shebang can be up and ready in the time it takes to spin the “Cha-Cha Slide” and “Sweet Caroline.”

Wedding Drapes Are Flexible

While some elements of a wedding setup are fairly static, a pipe and drape assembly gives you some flexibility. Wedding drapes can serve as a backdrop for practically any area of the ceremony, reception, or both. You’ll often see them used as a backdrop for the head table during the reception and covering up the walls of the venue, amongst many other locations.

With a wide variety of fabrics, textures, patterns, and colors, there are a plethora of choices available to incorporate the perfect drapes for your wedding.

Pipe and Drape Assemblies Add Style

Your choice of satin drapery, sheer drapes, classic polyester drapes, or other material, and whether used as wall-to-floor coverage or as ceiling drapes (or both!), can add a lot to the overall look and feel of your wedding. A beachfront wedding may benefit from sheer drapes that complement the light, airy atmosphere. Perhaps satin drapes could add a touch of elegance to an indoor wedding. Ceiling drapes add drama to the space as they bring the eyes of your guests upward, creating a sense of size that may please the in-laws that are paying good money for ooohs and aaahs.

Along with the material the drapes are made of and their placement, the colors chosen can add a lot to what needs to be a visually impactful day. Regardless of the colors of your wedding, you can find a color that either matches or complements you chosen hues. If everything from the napkins to the chair covers to the bridesmaid’s dresses to the groomsmen’s lapel pins to the flowers to the vases to the toilet paper is already matching, you may want to choose a more neutral color for the drapes. Basically, you can never go wrong with white wedding drapes! Either way, the choice will go a long way to incorporating your color choices with the visual effect of the wedding.

There are as many ways drapes can spice up your wedding as there are line dances you haven’t learned yet. When you are in between practicing the Cupid Shuffle and the Turbo Hustle, check out some ideas for wedding drapes -- they can easily enhance the look of an already beautiful day.
