If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about most high-end weddings, it’s that they often feature not only beautiful lighting to enhance the look of the event, but also gorgeous drapery to transform even the most basic of spaces. That’s why we love our friends at Rent My Wedding! They offer affordable and DIY-able kits to make lighting and now draping your wedding as easy as 1-2-3-4! Rent My Wedding just debuted their new DIY Pipe and Drape Kits and my friend Marie is here on the blog today to share with you just how easy it is to set up these backdrops. Take it away, Marie!! xoxo – Jessica
