Shopping Guide 

A wedding backdrop is an important part of your special day and one of the pieces your guests will remember most. You want to make sure it fits your overall wedding style, so take your time finding exactly what you’re after.

A key element to consider when choosing your backdrop is the time of year. A few of the wedding backdrop ideas on our list feature floral arrangements, but most of them can be customized to fit the season.

Additionally, you can play up the holiday theme if you have a winter wedding coming up. Any frames on your backdrop can be decorated with Christmasy plants or wreaths, or even fairy lights.

For those trying the knot in the warmer months, consider your venue when picking out colors and patterns. Opt for a more Bohemian look if you’re having a beach or forest wedding. Soft florals and pastels, on the other hand, will work well in a lush garden setting.

Keep in mind the lighting at your ceremony as well. If your wedding is taking place in the evening, for example, choosing a backdrop that includes fairy lights or neon signs may be a good idea.
