DIY Outdoor Ceremony Arch Supplies:

Backdrop Arch Stand

Fabric for side draping 2 pieces 20' each

Create a reception space with some shade:

Transform your garage by using pipe and drape to cover the walls.

Add up lights or string lights for some extra glow.

You can add crystal curtains, string curtains, flower garlands, or floral mats to your backdrop.

Hang some flower balls and paper lanterns from the ceiling.

Your draping will work as a selfie station, a ceremony arch, and even a spot for some indoor dining and dancing.

Outdoor Space Transformation:

If you are renting a tent you can add draping, lanterns, flower balls, and twinkle lights to make it look spectacular! If you are not renting a tent you can use fabric and tulle to decorate trees and other structures around the yard. (fences, railings, stairs)
