Product Guide: How to Choose Event Drapery & Decor

By: Marquee Event Rentals

Elegant drapery can transform any space into a classy event venue. With the right drapes and lighting, even a raw warehouse space can become a luxe locale.

Event draping rentals are often used to divide a large space into intimate rooms and hide unused areas, but they can also build anticipation and heighten drama. Imagine leading guests through a draped hallway into a grand ballroom, and how much better photo subjects look in front of a shimmering backdrop.

How to Choose Drapes for Your Event

Below are a few important considerations when renting drapery for your event. You can also contact one of our event rental experts for a complimentary consultation.

Do you need to divide a space? Whether you need to partition off a room, create different sections in a trade show booth, or establish a backstage area, drapes are an attractive solution. We also rent screens and decorative dividers in a variety of styles.

What impression do you want to create? Iridescent organza or shining Lamour satin can add glamour and elegance to any event. Use throughout the room, as a photo backdrop, or as part of a red carpet entryway. For something eye-catching, consider placing swag valances on top of drapes. This is a popular choice for wedding drapery rentals and corporate events.

Do you need to conceal something? If you want to camouflage walls, bleachers, signs, etc., choose lightweight “banjo” fabric. It’s budget-friendly and available in numerous colors, including black, white, blue, gold, and more. Our white lycra drapes are a good choice if you need to project something over the draped area.

Does your space have a lot of hard surfaces? Concrete, glass, and marble can affect acoustic quality. Reduce echoes and distractions by choosing a heavier drape, such as velour or satin.

Is sunlight a concern? Use thick drapes to cover windows and reduce glare or excess heat. Velour is a popular choice.
