Whether you’re dressing up an indoor space or creating an altar space outside, there are so many unique and creative ways to frame your vows. We’ve seen it all—boxwood walls, flower walls, geometric arches, neon signs and more! We’ve compiled a few of our favorite backdrop ideas that may inspire you and add major wow factor to the look of your ceremony.

Geometric Arches

Geometric arches, mainly triangle arches, have quickly become one of the hottest wedding trends. These versatile backdrops are perfect for almost any style including boho or minimalistic.

Floral Hoops

No one said that a backdrop has to be square! These circular floral hoops are so versatile and unique. If you really want your ceremony hoop to wow guests, suspend the hoop from the ceiling or with wire for a floating floral illusion.
