The material softens the look of the room and is an assortment of 24 colors and textures i.e. Sheer, Sateen, Burlap, Poly, Velour and many more fire-retardant fabrics. These textured fabrics come to life as their hung either down a wall or suspended from the ceiling.
What’s the cost of the service and is a deposit required?
Prices are reasonable and we have a $1,000.00 minimum. A 25% deposit is required when scheduling services and the final payment is due 15 days before the Event. Geri bases pricing on measurements taken at the facility. Room dimensions and wall height will help estimate how much time and materials are necessary. But rest assured, she’ll consider your budget and make the best of the space to accomplish your desired effect. Please go to the website and ‘Request a Quote’, and once that’s done, she will have a better idea of cost and can work to provide a proposal. The consult is free.
I’m planning a ‘Themed Wedding’; can you accommodate for my color scheme and design?
Yes. When traditional design doesn’t quite work, Geri builds from many different mediums to suite any special lines and turns around the framework. Themed Events are a specialty of hers’ and thinking out of the box is her strength. She knows where to find those special items that will make your Wedding unforgettable.
Can you give me an idea of where the drape could be placed?
Consider custom drape as ‘A Cosmetic Fabric Wall’ that serves as a backdrop for your ceremony, wedding cake area, reception wall(s), entranceway, cabanas, or stage background for the band. Many facilities host both the ceremony and reception in the same space. Pipe and drape lend itself to creating dividing walls that allow for softening the room.
What makes Atlanta Wedding Décor / GeriSims.com different than other competitors?
Geri has a flair for creating a light airy 3-dimensional look to an otherwise boring room. The drape is not only placed against the walls but hung in the ceiling along with LED string lighting, chandeliers, and up-lighting. Her hardware extends to 30’ in height. This is important in that no space is left between the drape and the ceiling so that a finished look is captured. Geri takes pride in the fact that she has a professional Staff, that are on time, and courteous. She’s willing to creatively make changes when required. Her fabric is always clean, wrinkle-free, never stained or discolored.
