12 Fun + Creative Wedding Reception Backdrops

Are you planning a lovely handmade wedding? Get tons of ideas here and here!

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, which is still one of my favorite posts to date. Today, we’re honing in on wedding reception backdrops for use behind your head table, cake table, or as a photo booth wall. We’ve rounded up a mix of twelve unique finds from some of our favorite places. Ready to get started? Bring on the coffee (um, I’m rounding out my first pot as we speak. Hey, give me a break, I’m a tired mama!)

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.

2. This palette backdrop

Perfect for an outdoor photo booth.

3. An exposed brick wall

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.

Go Faux: If you don’t have a real brick wall, go faux! You can use a backdrop support kit (we have a really inexpensive one, like this that works great) and faux brick fabric (like this from Spoonflower) draped from it. Or, if you have a spare wall, you can use removable faux brick wallpaper like this. It’s amazing and looks surprisingly realistic.

4. And this colorful fringe-y backdrop

Fun!

5. This mod geometric backdrop (with DIY instructions)

You can make this one yourself here.

7. And this one with cut-outs of the bride and groom

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…
