14 Most Beautiful Ceremony Backdrops Using Doors

One of our favorite rustic wedding details is the use of re-purposed doors as ceremony backdrops or decor. The more weathered they are, the better! To prove that ceremony backdrops are actually a beautiful DIY idea, we’ve rounded up fourteen of our favorite examples. Some of these are ceremony backdrops, while others are aisleway doors designed for the bride to make a true grand entrance — even outdoors! Get ready to break out the hammer + nails: you’re going to be on the lookout for castaway doors to re-purpose after this post! I know I am, if even just for my patio. ;) Enjoy!

P.S. Need to find doors for your project? Try here for vintage finds or Ebay.

Paper Flowers for Wedding Decor, Centerpieces & More

One of our favorite new trends — well, it’s been trending for awhile, but it’s still on point this season — is paper flowers as decor throughout your space. We’ve seen paper flowers along the aisle, as ceremony backdrops, at the head table, as centerpieces for receptions, adorning a cake, and more. Paper flowers are in — and they aren’t going anywhere for a long time to come.

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.

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.

Using TONS of ribbons may take a bit of work, but the result? A kiss like this…

The Ultimate Photo Booth Backdrop

What makes a wedding photo booth more fun? A handmade photo booth backdrop, of course! Earlier today, we talked about how to entertain guests at a wedding which included one of our favorite activities: a photo booth. The key to a perfect photo booth is a proper backdrop to ‘frame’ your photos with bright colors, unexpected decor (such as picture frames or props), and patterns to tie into your theme. One of our favorite backdrops is by April and Alison, the super-sweet dynamic duo behind The High Five Factory. This sweet shop offers handmade photo booth backdrops for your wedding or party designed with colorful strips of fabric that can easily tie into your wedding palette or theme. Plus, there is a pole pocket inside the top of the backdrop for easy hanging on a clothesline or homemade stand. Check out this brilliant design – which we call the ultimate photo booth backdrop – after the jump!
