Backdrops with Creativity in Mind!
#1 Graffiti Wall Art
Talk about attention-grabbing! This image we found via Callaway Gable suggests that even graffiti on city walls can be inspiration for a wedding backdrop. Imagine using this edgy art genre to have a customized backdrop made for your own modern wedding!
#2 The Indoors Brought Outdoors
From an apple orchard wedding photographed by Stephanie Fay, just look at this bright yellow sideboard with a window frame behind it and a chandelier overhead! Plus the feel of an old church made with fragments of weathered wood. (You must visit the post to appreciate this wedding’s many charms!)
#3 Flowing Ribbons
Here is a popular and more readily doable backdrop idea: ribbons! The color options are endless, allowing you to create whatever effect you wish—from ombre to rainbow to monochromatic. Then, add fresh flowers or else giant paper pompoms and pinwheels, as in this example from Wed Over Heels.
#4 A Chalkboard Archway
The current trend of chalkboard art provides a charming archway for the couple, as seen via Brides Magazine. Notice the inclusion of the parents’ names on either side, too. Sweet!
#5 Tick-tock, Tick-tock
This collection of clocks on display definitely makes one stunning backdrop! It was actually used for the vow exchange at a vintage-themed wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes.
#6 and #7 Wonders With Words
If you’re a couple of bookworms or literature nerds, celebrate this with a backdrop that almost literally ‘speaks volumes’! You could create a lifesize scroll containing a treasured passage from a book or your own vows to one another all written out, as in this gallery photo via Style Me Pretty.
