If your wedding ceremony is in a church, the backdrop is already beautiful. Most churches are decorated with subtle colors, ornate crosses, altar tables, candles, etc. And sometimes churches do not allow you to add much to the altar area as far as backdrops and flowers. If this is true of your wedding just be happy that you can spend more money on flowers at your reception!
If your wedding is somewhere other than a church, you may need to provide a beautiful backdrop- something behind the two of you that will frame every picture. Here are 7 ideas that work both indoors and outside.
Two vase arrangements of dahlias, eucalyptus and amaranthus on a narrow table with candles made the perfect simple backdrop in front of a rustic brick wall and windows. The view from these windows at the Lyon County History Center in Emporia, KS was definitely part of the backdrop for this wedding ceremony.
This wedding had a backdrop both outside and inside at the Bowyer Building in Emporia, KS. The wooden planks with two open doors we decorated with Baby's Breath wreaths. And inside, the wooden ladder arbor with the hanging chandelier we draped with a garland made with asparagus fern and salal and a mixture of coral flowers and baby's breath.
This is the perfect backdrop for your sweetheart table. The greenery garland with mixed berry flowers framing a lighted M, along with a gorgeous centerpiece of anemone, protea, blackberries, artichoke and carnations was perfect for the couple's Farmer's Market theme.
This is a traditional backdrop that many churches will allow you to use and decorate. The candleabra is decorated with mixed greenery, white tulips, stock and roses.
This formal wedding at Mildale Farm in Edgerton, KS was mostly Baby's Breath and pink roses. We used greenery garland covered in Baby's Breath for the wrought iron arch backdrop and it was the perfect frame for this happy couple!
This was such a fun challenge! This was the bride's vision of a floral curtain for the wedding ceremony in her family's barn. I used foraged branches from a maple tree, ruscus, and asparagus fern, then made strings of flowers using carnations, stock, and roses. The result was stunning.
As you can see, you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to the perfect backdrop for your wedding. The options are endless! I would love to hear your ideas. It is my goal as your florist to bring your visions to life!
