Wondrous Weddings: 3 Magical Ways To Use Your Drapes

Posted by LO on 7/29/2019 to Pipe and Drape
ceiling drapes Did you know that the average wedding costs around $35,329? There are a number of things that go into that bill, from the venue to the dress to the wedding cake. Of course, the decor is one of the most important elements of any wedding -- after all, you can't throw a themed wedding without any thematic elements! Ceiling drapes play a major role in creating the perfect aesthetic, though there are many other options available when it comes to drapery. Whether you decide to use sheer drapes, velour drapes, or satin drapes, let's take a look at a few of the ways they can be arranged to create an elegant and magical effect.

  • Ceiling Drapes: Starburst ceiling drapes are extremely popular in weddings as they direct the focus on your guests to one particular point in the room. The choice is up to you: have it hang above the dance floor, one stunning centerpiece, or the bride and grooms' table. The fabric billows out from a single point on the ceiling, creating a soft appearance that can completely conceal the ceiling above it.

  • Sheer Drapery Panels: Many wedding venues are tall and expansive. This can easily make the space feel too big and open. By hanging gauzy panels of sheer drapery off of these soaring ceilings, you'll be able to emphasize the height without losing yourself in it; the end result of this simple solution is a room that feels both spacious and cozy at the same time.

  • Stairway Draping and Candlelight: Your wedding drapes don't need to be limited to covering windows, masking walls, or hanging from the ceiling. If you're looking to create a sense of drama at the entrance to your reception, you can line the stairway or path with waves and waves of soft drapery; add candles to ramp up the ethereal aesthetic and make the entire affair seem just a little more romantic.

Although many people choose white drapery for a wedding, a major benefit of drapes are that they are incredibly versatile. No matter what color, material, or style you choose, you'll be amazed at how much of a difference they can make to your venue and your Big Day.
