7 Most Inspiring Ceremony Backdrops

#1: Something Blue

Ah, something blue: a cooling, calming color to soothe your wedding day nerves. This particular backdrop is reminiscent of the ocean and is a welcome change of pace from the traditional neutral color palette. The birds are a whimsical addition.

#2: Heart Backdrop

This is one of my all-time favorite ceremony backdrops. It was designed by the lovely Jesi Haack FOR THE COUPLE. Incredible, right? We love Jesi’s photography and her mad design skills. Take a peek…

#4: All Dressed Up in White

For ceremony backdrops in white, this is one of our favorites. It incorporates white balloons while embodying a wedding-worthy sense of style.

#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.

Remember… some ceremony locations are almost too gorgeous to cover up! For wedding ceremonies on the beach or in the woods), let Mother Nature do the heavy lifting!

Happy Planning!
