Tents are easily our favorite spaces to design. It’s always an exciting process to see how the decor in the tent comes to life. From lighting, to draping, hanging florals and unique customized pieces — we’ve done it all. One element we love is classic draping and lighting. Trust us when we say there is not a chandelier or swag of fabric that does not have our heart! So, we put together 3 draping ideas to spruce up your wedding tent decor.
1. Play with textures. For Alicia & Corey’s wedding at a private home in Connecticut, we decked out a Sperry Tent with alternating fabrics, bringing texture to the ceiling. Speak with your planner or tent decor company about other fabrics and textures that can be introduced into your design to heighten your aesthetic!
2. Bring in a touch of color! We said we love classic draping, but you don’t have to limit yourself to a white or ivory fabric. For Kara & Victor’s tented wedding at The Branford House, we brought in their color palette with beautiful mauve and blush draping. Draw inspiration from your own color palette, stretching this to every aspect of your design, making your wedding day look complete.
3. Pattern your fabric! Your guests will look up to revel in your romantic decor as soon as they enter the tent. Add a bit of intrigue and impact by weaving your fabric between the center poles, allowing this aspect to shine a bit more! We love this look that we created for Amy & Scott’s tented wedding at the Eisenhower House. The weaved fabric is unexpected, and added A LOT of drama to the ceiling of this magical tent!
