Draping to enhance the look of your wedding ceremony or reception room

The Original Draping Co.

Our first intention would be to get to know you and your requirements. Our Drapes are custom-made for you so we love to hear your thoughts first. There are many styles and fabrics and looks you can go for. From the magical to glamourous; incorporating themes such as Winter Wonderland to Vintage to Modern. We gauge your initial thoughts and go from there. Whether you wish to incorporate a colour, fairy lights or props we can create the perfect look to achieve the “WOW” effect for you and your guests. Our drapers are perfectionists and go that extra mile with attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship.

When should a couple book you?
We always advise that a couple should book in as soon as possible. We have bookings as far as 2020 but plenty of available dates and have been known to take on regular last minute work so we will try and be a flexible as we can. The more notice the better so we would advise anything from 4 months to 18 months. 

Do you come out to see the venue? 
We take pride in getting to know our venues inside and out. We have regular meetings with our couples to get to know them in order to create their perfect vision for their chosen venue. Once the venue is secured we are more than happy to pop in for a meeting at the location and run through how we can help. 

Do you hire the equipment or arrive at the venue on the day and dress the room on the couples’ behalf?
Our bespoke drapes are custom made at our workshop in Surrey and we arrive at the venue and create your design on the day. Previous to this you would have a consultation and receive a proposal which clearly states the chosen style which is signed off to give you peace of mind. 

What would be your top tips for couples considering venue enhancement?
Take a look at our Instagram and see what styles you like. The possibilities are endless but sometimes less is more and something as simple as white or ivory drapes with fairy lights looks absolutely stunning. We like meeting up and discussing the options using our fabric portfolio as well as visual images so we are 100% certain on what would make you and your partner extremely happy on your big day. We often ask you to provide pictures so we can get a feel for your style from the first contact. 

What are you expecting see more mainstream/more common in the next year or two? 
Different styles come back in depending on the season. From Bunting to Lanterns incorporating to chandelier lighting and gorgeous fairy lights used in the ceiling and walls. We have found that blush pink lighting is very popular at the moment but have been known to drape using black for a gothic effect or silver on Star Wars theming. Every client is individual and we aim to please. Our most popular request is white and ivory ceiling and wall drapes with as many twinkly lights as possible with starlight canopies. 

If you were getting married, how would you create the ultimate atmosphere in your venue? 
Depending on the chosen venue, we would emphasise the location and showcase the stunning parts of the room such as views, beams; empathising the aisle and the top table. Draping takes a gorgeous venue and elevates it to the next level. We can hide anything which stands out and needs to be hidden or cover our any curtain which clashes with your scheme. We can brighten a dark room with clean white drapes and lighten up any dark areas in a room. The result with draping is that you gain a dreamlike, romantic atmosphere which takes your wedding to La La Land.
