Alive Entertainment Red Carpet Entrances, Step & Repeat Photo Walls, Paparazzi Event Photography, Event Marketing. Fri, 13 Mar 2015 13:30:00 +0000 en Creative Wedding Ideas: Hollywood Red Carpet Reception Fri, 30 Mar 2012 17:36:09 +0000 admin Red Carpet Weddings

“I want to do something different and unique at my wedding reception!”

This is something we hear all the time, because let’s face it, wedding receptions ARE all the same! Tradition gets ahold of us and doesn’t let us go, but that’s okay - we all need traditions. However, deep down inside we are seeking that one “thing” to set our wedding & reception apart from everyone else’s we have ever been to. We are all looking to trump our friends with something bigger, more exciting, and unforgettable!

Custom Step and Repeat Backdrops

Imagine this: You just tied the knot. The ceremony is over. Your friends and family are patiently waiting for your introduction at the reception. Instead of having your guests sitting at their assigned table waiting for the DJ or MC to announce your wedding party and the newlyweds (you), why not have your guests give you the warmest welcome of your entire life? After all, this day is all about celebrating YOU!

Enter on your very own, custom designed Hollywood step & repeat red carpet entrance and let your friends and family play paparazzi for you! (Of course there will be room for your photographer too!)

Think about this! Not only do you get to make the entrance of a lifetime, you’re guaranteed:

  • to be the center of attention
  • to engage and interact with your guests
  • to have lots of great photos
  • and to provide fun for guests of all ages!

Oh and that crazy Aunt you have that is always blocking everyone’s view, trying to take photos when she is suppose to be seated - she is in her glory. She loves this idea.

Your guests who don’t dance, have something else to watch and participate in rather than sitting at their table twiddling their thumbs. They love this idea.

With a little liquid encouragement everyone will want to strut their stuff. The flashes are going to fly! You and your entourage will own the Facebook newsfeed for days…

Fun, affordable, and we guarantee it’s an experience that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.

About Our Entrance Carpets

Our entrance carpets come cut to order and are completely fabricated in our warehouse. They are available in any size and any color. We can even print your company logo, design, or message right on the carpet. The edges are hemmed and the carpets are backed in nylon fiber to prevent fraying. Carpets are reusable and can be cleaned with standard household equipment.

We offer two styles of carpet customization, inlay logo carpets, and custom dyed carpets. Inlay carpets provide an affordable solution to those seeking a simple logo placement on a carpet - best for occasional use. Custom dyed carpets are great for elaborate designs and logos, permanent installations, or events expecting heavy foot-traffic. We will not screen print on any carpet, as the result is cheap and wears off easily. Don’t be fooled by anyone offering this service. Please send us your logo so we can determine what is best for you.

Choose from a variety colors below, or request a specific match from the Pantone color library. Please send us your desired PMS color. If you require materials samples mailed to you, please call us.
