Inspiration {Ceremony Backdrops}

Hello there! A portion of my blog will be used to provide inspiration. The first bit of inspiration I have for you is ceremony backdrops. There are so many incredible ideas out there. The ceremony is a way for you to be creative and bring in your personality too-not just the reception. To be honest I was going to include ceremony décor as a whole but I found so many amazing ideas I can't wait to share with you, so stay tuned! I will be covering ceremony seating, programs and aisle décor. If there are other pieces of ceremony décor you need inspiration for let me know.  I searched my favorite wedding blogs for ceremony backdrop inspiration and am sharing my favorites with you. I will also be blogging about wedding blogs that I highly recommend later on too. Enjoy and tell me which one you would pick!


Paper Flowers-I absolutely love this one. It's a regular metal arch with a whole lot of beautiful paper flowers in different colors and designs. It is such a fun and vibrant focal point.

Antique Doors- You will quickly learn that I am a big fan of rustic antique furniture and accessories full of character. This look would be very simple to achieve. You can find old doors at antique stores, architectural salvage yards or better yet at a ReStore which is run by Habitat for Humanity. It is full of household items and it is for a good cause. Check if you have one in your area.

Antique Ladders- I'm a big fan of this too. It's so different than the usual. You could really style each shelf however you wanted. You could add candles, flower arrangements, framed photos whatever your pretty little heart desires.

Ribbons- This makes such a fun statement. This one is very colorful but if that's not your style I have seen gorgeous ones elegantly done with all white. I wonder how it would look with strips of lace or even strips of fabric.

Hay Bales- I love an outdoor ceremony on a farm (huge understatement) especially if it is under a cascading oak tree. I love that a beautiful floral wreath was added to the hay bales to give it the perfect little touch of color. The hanging picture frames hung from the oak tree finish off the look.

Chalkboard-This is a trend I really can't get enough of. Especially when it's so well designed and executed like this one. I think I will be creating a blog post dedicated to all things chalkboard. There are some amazing vendors out there that can write calligraphy on chalk. If you want to replicate this you could buy a room divider or two old doors and paint it with chalkboard paint (It doesn't have to be black-any color!) and hire a calligrapher or someone with great handwriting (I'm not too shabby if I do say so myself) to write whatever your heart desires. It could serve as the wedding program. Important quotes about love or favorite parts of your wedding vows.

Receipt Paper- That's right-receipt paper! My favorite medium, hands is down paper and here is why. It is incredibly versatile and inexpensive. I think it is so romantic looking and it makes such a statement.

I hope that these ceremony backdrops were inspiring to you. I hope you also see how great adding these pieces to the ceremony décor are. It doesn't have to be extravagant or expensive most of the materials are inexpensive and I would love to create a draw dropping and unique focal point to your ceremony space.
