Striking Ceremony Backdrops to Wow your Guests

When deciding on the look and feel of your wedding day, it is tempting to focus mainly on the reception because let’s face it, that is where the party is! But, what about the wedding ceremony? These striking ceremony backdrops are beautiful, unique and sure to wow your guests:


Whether you are celebrating with an indoor or outdoor ceremony, creating a floral arch may seem simple, but it can be unique. Use your favourite blooms to add a personalized touch while creating tons of organic style.

Pro Tip: To create something stunning while being budget-friendly, use flowers that are in season to help make it more cost-effective.

Boho Macrame Detail

Macrame detail has been growing in popularity. They look beautiful at a boho wedding, a bridal shower and even a rustic wedding reception. We love the organic handmade feel they give off and what’s better, they can be reused at home after your wedding.

Neon Lighting

Lighting is always a winner! Now is your moment to go big and be bold. Create a stunning backdrop where you and your significant other will say your ‘I do’s’ and move it to your reception area where guests can use it as a photo backdrop. Add some florals to make an even bigger statement.

Remember, neon doesn’t have to be bright and colourful! If you’re a couple that prefers a more minimal and modern look then opt for a white neon sign which will fit in perfectly with a more monochromatic and minimalist wedding while still adding that wow factor.

Colour Block Backdrop

We love this idea incorporating colour blocks with crisp lines. Choose different colours that complement one another and that fit in with your wedding style. Add fresh and dried flowers for vibrant pops of colour and arrange them asymmetrically for an overall winning combination.

Geometric Shapes

Channel your wedding style and if it is more minimal and modern, why not consider a geometrically patterned structure? It’ll make an impact with the less is more look. Add a bit of greenery and fresh flowers to beautify your ceremony backdrop.
