Drapery to Delight Your Wedding Guests


There is nothing we love more than gorgeous drapery to entirely transform a space, making it uniquely yours and there is no one else we trust to do this more than the lovely ladies of TN Event Designs.

We are sure you've all seen gorgeous images of custom wedding draping throughout the world on Pinterest. If you haven’t, don't worry!! TN Event Designs has plenty for you to feast your eyes on and will even sketch out some unique designs just for you.

The big question is, WHY should you drape? To be honest, we feel that it is one of the best ways to transform a space from a bare bones venue into something special and entirely unique. The simplest way to achieve this is with addition of great fabric and beautiful lighting.

The right drapery and lighting combination can soften a space for a romantic and intimate occasion or create a dramatic statement to offer a dramatic and elegant backdrop for your guests (and don't forget all the gorgeous photos!).

Draping for weddings and events is an extremely useful way to structure your room flow as well as customize your event to exactly the way you want it. There are so many options. We have used it to create a unique backdrop for the ceremony or to divide a room in half to separate the cocktails from the reception, tying it back once cocktails were over to create a larger space and yet another dramatic look. It is a perfect backdrop for a concert or to make a grand entrance through a doorway. Let TN Event Designs come up with a great design for your event.

Our favorite ways to incorporate draping into your wedding venue is with a lovely swag from the ceiling with a central chandelier (swoon city!). It will add a touch of glamour to your décor and works well at most local Nashville venues such as Noah Liff Opera Center or Saddle Woods Farm. Set the classy tone of the evening further by adding doorway drapes to frame the entrance of your reception. With a wide range of colors to choose from the options are truly endless. We promise your guests will enjoy the romantic ambiance!

Every bride loves a beautifully set tent, but we also like to take it one step further by adding a specialty lighting and drape. String lighting creates a soft glow for a romantic ambiance and whether you choose to simply drape the side poles on your frame tent or to line the entire interior in drapery, it will create a delicately classic liner interior essential for any Southern wedding.

Try combining draping with bistro lighting or uplighting to add a dramatic and unique feeling to your event. Remember that drape can be hung anywhere, so it can look great anywhere. Want to see it on the roof of a tent with string lighting or uplit along the walls? Want to see it out in the open criss crossing a courtyard? Want to even see it in a grand old tree? The artists at TN Event Designs have done it all!

At one wedding that we planned at Houston Station, we used draping to direct the room to the ceremony space. Following the ceremony we turned the room created from drapery and candlelight to graceful swags and flows of fabric light with colorful uplighting before the reception to open up the room again. Resizing the room and using candlelight helped make the ceremony feel intimate and shifted focus to the bride as she walked through the draped doorway and hall. After, TN Event Designs reworked the drape and added in uplighting, it completely redesigned the room for the reception and highlighted the floral centerpieces and dance floor. Because of this, draping is an effective way to build a temporary, yet elegant barrier within the event space creating something entirely unique.
