Creative Wedding Ceremony Decor Ideas
I just love this Calligraphy Backdrop via Smith House Photography. This would be a great wedding DIY project by hand painting the lettering (or create a stencil using your Cricut) on a large white sheet or piece of fabric.
These flower garland curtains are just PERFECT for a rustic and romantic wedding. You can purchase them on Etsy from LoveEmbellished!
Use the trees! I love this make shift backdrop via Set Free Photography made simply by using their surroundings. Hanging fabric, chandelier and lamps filled with gorgeous flowers makes for a romantic ceremony backdrop.
This couple leaves it to the trees as well by hanging mason jar and tealight candles (photo via Steven Michael Photo) Simply breathtaking, don’t you think?
This Boho Macrame Wedding Ceremony Alter Arch from TheHousePhoenix on Etsy is seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t need one for a wedding ceremony, but maybe I’ll just get one for my house so I can look at it everyday!
I’m swooning over this springtime garland tutorial from Perpetually Chic. She breaks it all down in a great tutorial so you can DIY this for your wedding!
You all know how much I love pallets, so this reclaimed wood backdrop via Corrina Walker Photography definitely caught my eye. This Canadian wedding had some other awesome ideas for the rest of the wedding and reception as well!

I’m seriously in love with this tree branch arbor, especially with it’s place in this field. Photo via Leighanne Herr.

I’ve always loved paper cranes. This wedding ceremony backdrop via Derek Martinez Photography is so precious!
This Ombre Rose Petal Garland from CeremonyBackdrop on Etsy is just the right amount simple and romantic. I love the full range of ombre color choices they offer.
Lastly, here’s what I came up with for our rustic wedding ceremony backdrop. It was a super simple wedding DIY project. We tied strips of lace and ripped fabric to a rope and hung behind the wedding ceremony, complete with a rustic wedding communion table set up in front.
