Using backdrop draping on your big day can transform it from a good event to a breathtaking event! From creating a focal point for where wedding vows take place to provide wall coverage to show off uplighting, draping will create a luxe finish to completely transform your venue.

With so many materials and color drapes to choose from, you’ll be able to find the type of draping that perfectly suits your needs at CV Linens. Whether you need one for a special event such as a wedding or graduation party, there are many different options for a backdrop. You must know exactly which one is best suited to your needs.

Why Is Backdrop Draping for Wedding Needed

Large events help make special memories that many people will cherish. At many special events, such as weddings, baby showers, or anniversary parties, the decor is one of the most important aspects of setting the theme and atmosphere.

From chic weddings to colorful birthday parties, we have an array of both custom and premade draping available that will suit your theme. Ceiling draping for a wedding enhances the overall look and feel of your special day. Draping ensures that any photographs taken will look spectacular, which you’ll feel great about when looking back on them down the road!

Once you decide on which backdrop draping material is right for you, you’ll need to make a plan on how the backdrop will stay up during your event. The easiest and safest option is to use a pipe and drape kit. 

Don’t worry about its appearance, it’s effectively hidden by the material but will still perform the crucial task of keeping your drapes held up. The best thing to do is use a suitable backdrop draping pipe and drape set that is sturdy and of the right size for your wedding ceilings or intended use.

Finding The Best Backdrop Draping for Wedding Receptions

When selecting the ideal backdrop for your wedding reception, several factors come into play to ensure a stunning setting. Consider the overall theme and color scheme of your wedding, as well as the venue's size and layout. The chosen backdrop should complement the decor and enhance the ambiance of the party space.

Now, let's explore some excellent options from CV Linens to elevate your wedding reception:

Reliable Backdrop Stands for Draping Fabric for Weddings

When it comes to backdrop stands there are quite a few options. Backdrop stands usually vary due to how high the backdrop poles extend and how many crossbars it can support. There are some things you should be on the lookout for when you are finding a backdrop stand to use at your special event. 

Make Sure it’s Easy to Move Around

Pipe and drape sets will need to be transported, so ensure the crossbars and uprights will be able to fit into your vehicle without a problem. Pipe and drape sets from CV Linens are lightweight and will be able to be carried with ease. 

Make Sure it’s the Right Size

When you are looking for a backdrop stand you need one that can extend high and wide enough to fit the area you want it in. Measure out the area you’d like to have draping and order the corresponding size. 

Purchase an additional base, upright, and crossbar if you need to cover a wider area. If you're looking to add an extra crossbar to your upright, but there is no slot for the crossbar to fit into, buy our drape support clamps (2 pcs/pk).

Make Sure it’s Sturdy

While it’s true that your backdrop stand needs to be lightweight, it also needs to be able to hold up your draping of choice. All drapes are not made the same and some are a heavier material than others. Not only will using a quality pipe and drape set avoid a potential decor collapse during your event, but it also removes any safety concerns for guests.

CV Linens pipe and drape sets are the epitome of sturdy draping equipment. Each base is made of steel to ensure the structure will stay in place. In addition, each upright and crossbar is made of high-quality aluminum for dependability and ease of transport.
