Let’s face it, we’re not all getting married in a house of worship. So, how do you make your ceremony location stand out in a unique way? Flowers are the old standby. Now, brides, stylists and planners are scouring for fun and unique ways for the altar to pop. Through color, textiles and found objects, the mission is accomplished.
Having an evening warehouse / loft wedding? Hang strands of light from the ceiling for a simple yet dramatic look (with the added detail of ambient lighting).
Your grandfather loved clocks? Honor him with an eclectic collection of vintage clocks as your backdrop. Not only is this quirky and fun, but it’s a nod to your beloved family member.
Having an outdoor ceremony? Add streamers to the trees to create a colorful backdrop, and a dramatic element when the wind blows. Or, use found objects, like Allison did with these old doors, and string a fun phrase to frame the shot.
Want to add a pop of color? Aim for something dramatic using colorful textiles and votives, hanging them against a muted wall, from a tree or wherever the color will shine.
Are you a teacher, or just a lover of chalkboards? Create this backdrop using design cues from your stationer. Not only does it make a fun ceremony backdrop, but it also is the perfect background for your photobooth.
Your ceremony backdrop is the perfect opportunity to add a little flair and personality. How did you (or will you) spruce up your ceremony spot?
