Ikea has very inexpensive curtain rod. Check out Hugad. It could extend to 385 cm. The price is only $6.99 each. Then buy sheer materials or tulle from fabric store. The width is usually 150 cm and per meter's cost is between $4 to $9 depends on which materials. From Costco or Canadian Tire, buy light strings. Voila!!! you have beautiful backdrop with less than $100.

I'm trying to get my mom on board to rent but she doesn't see it as necessary. How much do you think it would cost?
I agree with Stephanie. the cost to rent is worth the headache of having to set up/tear down. especially if something were to happen while trying to set up. pros are so experienced at those heights/setting them up.
Getting a large enough quantity of material can be hard if you go to fabric land or something like that! If you're willing to try online just make sure when they send the material it is in ONE solid piece! Some will cut it which would ruin the look! It's very doable but a nice material that drapes well can be expensive, it's almost more worth it just to rent and have the vendor worry about set up and take down IMO
