If you’re looking for wedding reception backdrops — incredible, creative, and totally awe-inspiring backdrops — you’ve come to the right place! We’ve talked about backdrops in the past, including these creative ceremony doors and flower backdrops, and even these ceremony arches which is still one of my favorite posts to date. Today we’re honing in on wedding reception backdrops for use behind your sweetheart table (or head table), cake table, or as a photo booth wall. We’ve rounded up a mix of fourteen unique finds from some of our favorite places. Ready to get started? Let’s go!
Bring on the inspiration!
Wedding Reception Backdrops
1. This huge heart backdrop
This would look stunning in your head table or sweetheart table photos. Or, have guests sign the little wood rounds as a makeshift guest book and hang it in your bedroom after the wedding. Love, love, love.
Perfect for an outdoor photo booth.
One of our favorite looks is a modern exposed brick wall, which looks great as-is. Can you imagine lucking out with a wall like this?!
If you’re lucky enough to have a wall like this at your reception, use it to your advantage as a backdrop.
4. And this colorful fringe-y backdrop
Fun! You can find similar fringe backdrops here.
You can make this one yourself here.
Now guests can snap photos with the newlyweds while they’re off dancing their you-know-whats off. Oh and you can go get your own life-size cardboard cut-outs aka life-size standees here.
This is so versatile — use it for your reception, shower, bachelorette party, New Years…
This hanging flower backdrop can go anywhere! It’s so pretty, indoors or out.
I love the green backdrop and those handmade pinwheels! Great idea — and you can get the full diy details here.
Perfect for a country / rustic wedding. For the real deal, you can get a giant barn door slab here. After the wedding, you can use it as an actual sliding barn door at home. Or, consider a faux one here as a photo booth backdrop if you don’t have the real thing.
This is so stunning! Wow, can my garage look like this?!
13. This amazing paper flower backdrop

My latest fave! But I’m a total boho/rustic bride at heart. By The House Phoenix.
