Tired of the same old wooden arch? We understand! Bringing personality into your ceremony space will help tell your story on an even deeper level. Plus, you’ll feel more at home and at ease saying your “I do’s” in front of something that inspires you. To help get your brainstorm started, we’ve put together a roundup of seven creative ceremony backdrops that will totally wow your guests!
1. VINTAGE ROOM DIVIDER
Where are our thrifters at?! A room divider can be the perfect, ready-made ceremony backdrop of your dreams. Add a touch of dried floral to spice up the look and voila! Some one of you may even already have a room divider in your home or in your grandma’s attic — which would be a budget friendly move.
2. COLOR-BLOCKED WOOD ART
If you’ve read our 2020 wedding trends to obsess over post, you know we’re loving color blocking this year. There’s no better way to bring in a little bit of color block magic than for your ceremony backdrop! Bonus: If you have something custom created, you can also make it double as a really cool headboard or home art piece after the big day.
3. BANNER OF WORDS
If you’re like most couples, you probably have your “song” or maybe a special verse of words that you and your partner have claimed as your own. If it’s meaningful to you, why not have it beautifully displayed behind you as you vow your endless love to one another. We think your guests will love seeing something that represents who you are as a couple!
4. A CANOE
Okay, we know this one isn’t for everyone, but it’s definitely original! If your beach-side ceremony space has the room for some thing big and unique, be bold. Not feeling quite so bold as the canoe? Grab a surfboard in stick it in the ground for something more subtle.
5. DIY BUTTERFLY WALL
Out of all the DIY’d ceremony backdrops we’ve seen, a DIY butterfly wall has got to be one of our faves! Not into butterflies? Use the same concept! You can DIY a wall of pretty much anything — make your ceremony backdrop represent something that’s special to you.
