DIY Wedding Backdrop Ideas

If you are getting married, then you are likely thinking about themes and decorations to celebrate the occasion. The wedding backdrop will be an important feature of the ceremony.

If you are hosting a wedding indoors or outdoors, you can make a suitable arrangement. Items to consider using include fairy lights, tulle, oversized hoops or clothes rails, and plenty of flowers and garland. Check out these ideas to get some inspiration for your big day.


Outdoor Setup

This idea is so simple to recreate for an enchanting look for the outdoor wedding. The arch is made with wood branches, baby’s breath, lights, and pink floral arrangements, while barrels frame the arch on either side. Finish by placing two large wood slices on the ground to create an almost fairy garden look.



For an elegant backdrop, go for all-white. The leaf garlands are beautiful with white flowers. You can use tulle and battery-operated fairy lights for illumination. A large oversized hoop creates the frame. Clear boxes of different sizes are also filled with lights to add to the magic. Finish by adding a monogram of the couple's initials.


Drop Lights

Create drama by layering lights at different heights. You can use a rail such as a clothes rail for the frame, which is then adorned with the decorations of your choice. It will make a great place to set your cake for plenty of photo opportunities.
