7 Most Inspiring Ceremony Backdrops

#1: Something Blue

#5: Curtains + Wood Molding

This is one of those ceremony backdrops that reminds me of home interior design dubbed wedding decor. It is created with a pair of curtain panels each pulled to the side and tied; it is displayed along with wood molding crafted to form almost a window-frame appearance. Love.
