5 Stylish Ceremony Backdrop Ideas

5 Ceremony Backdrop Ideas

The vows you'll exchange during your ceremony are probably the most important part of your entire wedding. They form the basis of your commitment to one another and become the foundation of your marriage.

As each of you says 'I do', you'll be the main focal point for your friends and family in the audience. Cameras will be trained on your every move and the images they capture will stay with you forever.

Your obvious love and devotion to one another will ensure the scene is truly beautiful, but a stylish ceremony backdrop adds even more magic.

Here are five simple ceremony backdrop ideas that can create a massive impact, wowing guests and guaranteeing gorgeous photographs...    

1. Ribbons

Ethereal and dreamy, ribbons look effortlessly stylish, especially paired with flowers and foliage. Endless colour options also make it easy to incorporate this look into your chosen theme.

2. Fairy Lights

Ideal for winter weddings or evening ceremonies, a curtain of fairy lights add instant glamour to any wedding venue. We'd suggest lining the aisle with candles and flowers too.

Swathes of diaphanous fabric can look seriously stunning, especially at an outdoor ceremony with a gentle breeze.

4. Hanging Flowers

Beautifully sculptural and often quite dramatic, a hanging flower backdrop can work for a multitude of styles and themes. Whether you want something contemporary and chic or rustic and luxurious, your florist should be able to suggest the best blooms for your desired look.

How to Do the ‘Legal Bit’ First and Plan a Heartfelt, Fun-Filled Party Later

Now, more than ever before, couples have a very good reason to make their marriage official before holding a big celebration at a later date. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many to postpone their weddings until later this year or next. I’ve seen the heartache this has caused first-hand, and I know the situation is far from ideal.
