The best wedding drapery fabrics

A question that we often get from event decorators, party planners, and newlyweds-to-be is: “What is the best fabric to use for wedding drapery?”

It’s certainly a great question to ask – after all, you’re setting the atmosphere for a super important day!

When it comes to choosing your wedding curtains, there is no one “right answer”…it’s based on personal preference and the setting that you’re trying to create.

With that in mind, here are a few of the most popular drape fabrics for wedding ceremonies and receptions:


Sheer Voile Wedding Drapes

Light and airy, crisp and clean -- Sheer Voile is an excellent choice for weddings! This fabric helps create a setting straight out of a fairy tale.

Voile is a 118 inch ultra-wide draping fabric for wedding receptions, and looks amazing when used on pipe and drape backdrops and ceilings.

White Sheer Voile is the most popular option, especially when used with lighting to create stunning effects. No lighting? No problem! Voile fabric is also available in a variety of other colors, such as Red, Royal Blue, Silver, and Pink, helping accentuate your wedding color theme.


Poly Premier Wedding Drapes

Poly Premier fabric is elegant, yet subtle, making it a great option for any event -- weddings included. These drapes have a texture similar to fabric used for table linens at a fine dining restaurant, which offers both romance and sophistication.

What are the most popular Poly Premier drape colors for weddings? White and Ivory are the top choices, though you can also choose from 10 other popular colors.


Poly Satin Wedding Drapes

The beautiful sheen of Poly Satin drapes makes it a great choice for wedding backdrops. With a lovely gloss finish, this fabric helps create the perfect romantic setting.

White is the most popular drape color (notice a pattern?), but you also have the option of Poly Satin drapes in 7 other breathtaking colors as well.

Keep in mind that not all satin fabrics are the same, and some are better suited for wedding receptions than others. We use a heavier weight than most, and the satin gloss isn’t over-the-top.


A wedding is one of the happiest moments in a couple’s lives, as well as a time for family and friends to celebrate alongside the happy bride and groom. Simple finishing touches like wedding curtains and backdrops are a perfect way to enhance the romance and excitement of the day.
