We are using a faux-silk chiffon to drape our ceremony arch and the chairs along the aisle.  I had my florist include it in our quote so I am not sure of exact price.

I just posted a question regarding cost as well. I was quoted $850 by my florist for a 10 foot x 30 foot space. I only want it behind my head table but for that much, I can definitely do without. I hope other will have some answers.

You can rent the chiffon draping material from: http://www.dressmychair.com/swags_aisle_runners.html


Their prices are some of the best I found (like $200 for 150 ft).

May I ask a question?  I'd consider this, but how do you plan on draping yourself when most venues don't let you in until at least the day of the wedding.  I know I'm going to be running the entire week before for my daughter, but the day before and day of are out of the question...I think we'll all be too busy.  I'm interested to hear how others plan on doing this.

OMG blondebunny thank you! With it being 60" wide I would actually only need a 50yd roll to do the whole thing and it'd only be 60 bucks! YES

Ladies,


Also take a look at chairgowns.com they have something called table veiling that is 78 inches wide on a 300 foot roll for 94.95.  The only drawback is very limited colors.

I found very inexpensive organza, tulle, and silk at www.efavormart.com.  I'm looking at prices for chiffon, as well since we want to use accent lighting.  The cheapest chiffon I've found is $9 a yard on http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/.  Way too expensive for me since we need 54 yards!
