Aisle Style – 20 of the Most Lovely Altar Backdrops
Today’s post puts us half way through this series of Aisle Style posts – and I don’t know about you but I am loving them. Perusing the most creative and stylish weddings and shoots, to find inspiring decor for your aisle. Having so far pulled together 20 of the most inspiring and just plain incredible Arches, Drapes, Doors and Lighting, I am turning my attention to altar backdrops. A stylish aisle isn’t the be all and end all of your big day,think of it more as the topper on the wedding cake, the finishing flourish to your ceremony. A beautiful backdrop can transform any venue and provides the perfect frame for capturing those all important moments – walking towards your husband-to-be on the arm of your Dad, exchanging your vows, being pronounced husband and wife and of course your first kiss as Mr & Mrs!
So whether you are saying your I dos indoors or out, in the sight of god or under a tree; during Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter take a squiz at 20 of the most lovely altar backdrops you will ever lay your eyes on…..
Floral Altar Backdrops
Floral backdrops don’t just look beautiful, choose the right flowers and they will infuse your ceremony with the most incredible scent. Create solid walls of flowers for real impact or create flower garlands by hanging them either inn single stems or homed in pretty vases or coloured bottles.
Or hanging them in front of a fabric backdrop to make the flowers really pop…..
Or around a fabric backdrop…..
Or arranging them in a stunning pattern…..
Fabric Altar Backdrops
Or save a few pennies (as flowers can be costly, especially for weddings) without losing any of the impact by creating a simple drape backdrop with a pretty piece of fabric.
DIY Altar Backdrop
Or if you are feeling crafty, how about a DIY project to tackle with your betrothed, or to involve family and friends.
Written Altar Backdrops
Simple or elaborate, a few heartfelt, meaningful words create a backdrop that is both beautiful and memorable – it can even be kept as a keepsake and hung in your home.
Or really let your imagination run wild because it seems almost anything can be used to create a stunning backdrop for your big day.
I think the windows could be my favourite….and I have also seen it done using photos of the happy couple, which was equally cute. What do you think, would any of these backdrops be just perfect for your chosen venue? Or have any left you inspired?
