Church Reception gets a Make Over

I posted a few posts (here and here) on why lighting & draping make a world of difference.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Can I get an Amen? :)
Here's a before & after shot of the church reception hall.

Major thanks to Luna Party Rentals for their draping & G2 lighting for their awesome lighting.
About 7-8 crew members (including myself) stayed until 10pm the night before the wedding to set it all up. Talk about dedication & commitment to completely transform the space!
More photos will be up soon..

How much does it cost to do this? I'm having a church wedding in August and would love to fit this in my very small budget, if possible.

Dear Anonymous,
For draping,it really depends on the size of the space, but you should expect anywhere between $1K-$2K.
Lighting also depends on how many uplights & pinspots you get but you should also expect roughly around $1K-$2K. Chavari chairs are now $5 each so it's not too bad. Do make sure to get the chaivari chairs & linens before you get any estimates for draping & lighting. Completely transforming a space isn't cheap but definitely makes a world of difference.

What an amazing transformation! I can't believe that's the same room. I found your blog on HWTM. I love what you did for your son's bday. I'm storing that party away for ideas!

Esther said...

thanks everyone for your wonderful comments! can't take all the credit because it really was the lighting & rentals that made all the difference!

I am getting married in October and I am also hoping to transform my space...on a budget! So did you do the draping yourself? Did the lighting and rental companies put it up? Also, what was the cost of the draping?
