One of the most important aspects of creating the perfect wedding atmosphere is knowing how to match your decorative efforts with an image the bride has in her mind of how she wants her wedding to look.
Everything you choose from the tablecloths to the wedding draping must complement the bride’s gown, the spirit of the day, and of course the theme of the wedding itself.
Bear in mind that when we are talking about draping for a wedding, we are referring to using lengths of cloth to decorate tables, walls, dividers, windows, and more.
Wedding Draping is Not as Easy as It Looks
You might think that hanging wedding draping should be pretty easy, after all, you are just hanging lengths of cloth, right? Not so fast, there is far more to this than meets the eye. If it really was this easy, wouldn’t everyone be doing it? There’s the rub; far too many wedding designers out there think they can handle creating hangings and drapings only to find that no matter how hard they try, the result turns out to be far less aesthetically pleasing than what they had envisioned.
The reason for this is really pretty simple. Most of these people have never made the effort to invest a little of their time in learning how to handle draping for weddings the right way. Many have learned what they do know by trial and error. They have one or two basic styles they use for every event. While this might work for a large percentage of a person’s clients, it really doesn’t do much towards creating the “WOW factor” most of your clients are likely to be looking for.
