Fabulous Flower Wall

A floral-inspired wedding backdrop is especially pretty and also gentle on the purse-strings – it can be a fun DIY project for you and your other half! Match the flowers used to the ones in your wedding bouquet, and simply string then onto some rope or a fishing line in staggered rows. Hang them onto pegs from the ceiling and voila! You’ve got yourself a gorgeous backdrop.

Romantic Fairy Light Curtains

Not only will fairy lights bring out the sparkles in your dress, they’ll look incredible in your wedding photographs. Fairy lights are a relatively budget-friendly option for a ceremony backdrop, and will completely transform your venue space with a soft light that is extremely flattering.

A Splash of Colour

Why not exchange vows in front of a variety of different coloured ribbons? This is especially fun if you’re planning an outdoor ceremony, as the wind will create a beautiful movement with your ribbons.

Classy and Traditional

Love the thought of using ribbons but want to make sure your ceremony still looks chic? Use white, lace fabric strips for a traditional look. Why not nestle a few fairy lights into the ribbon to create a warm glow and something extra special?

Rustic Floral Archway

I love the idea of decorating a wooden archway with some beautiful flowers and foliage – particularly perfect if you’ve chosen a rustic wedding theme. Add a touch of glamour with some draped curtains – you’ll definitely create an impact. If you want to keep things simple, gather a collection of potted plants and place around a wooden archway. This is incredibly affordable too and can be used after the big day!

Picture-perfect Pom-Poms

Paper pom-poms and paper fan garlands are a fabulous way to decorate your altar space. Experiment with different colours and textures, or keep it classy with a white wall display. If you want to be really on-trend, create an ombré colour scheme for your backdrop. It’ll make your venue come to life, and is guaranteed to get your guests talking.

There are tons of fabulous, fun ideas out there that will create an awe-inspiring ceremony backdrop. Feathers, bunting, photo frames and even origami shapes will create a stylish display. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it’s personal to you and your hubby-to-be. A beautiful wedding backdrop is something that your guests will always remember…
