Pinterest Pics: Beautiful Backdrops

One of our favorite wedding trends has to be beautiful ceremony backdrops.  Attention has always been paid to decorating the aisle, but lately we have noticed couples are finding ways to incorporate their personalities into their ceremony by creating the perfect backdrop to say “I DO.”  We have seen so many great backdrops on pinterest, we wanted to highlight some of our favorites.  The best part about many of these backdrops is they are DIY projects.

So, how do you come up with the perfect backdrop for your wedding?  Here are some ideas to help you brainstorm!

1. Venue: Think about your venue and ways you can highlight elements that are already there.  For example, this fabric backdrop was perfect for a ceremony taking place in an old fabric factory.

2. Colors:  Creating a backdrop in your color palette is a great way to bring life to your ceremony.  How cool is this vibrant red backdrop made of rosette pinwheels!

3. Meaning: What do you want your ceremony to represent about you as a couple?  Maybe you want to highlight your culture or family traditions.  Or symbolize words like “fun” and “happiness”.  We love this idea or creating a backdrop of 1000 Paper Cranes.  Yes, this idea may take a little more time to create..but it certainly makes a statement!  And you can let your guests know the meaning behind the backdrop, 1000 Paper Cranes symbolizes a thousand years of happiness and prosperity for the couple.

4. Lighting: Depending on the mood you are trying to create, you may be able to incorporate lighting elements into your backdrop.  This backdrop incorporated bistro lights which helped create a romantic setting for an evening ceremony!
