Ribbon Backdrops

Posted on March 16, 2014 by  Miss Country Music Bride   //   1 Comment

If you’re looking to add a focal point to your wedding, I highly recommend using a ribbon backdrop. They are great because you can make them yourself (just tie scraps of fabric or ribbon to a horizontal stick or pole), and they add a whimsical and romantic vibe. They are great for creating a backdrop for your ceremony, bar/drink table, and even your cake!

If you are going for an even more rustic feel, you can substitute the ribbon with rope! Look how beautiful this simple rope backdrop is.

Ribbon backdrops create the perfect background for pictures. If you include a ribbon backdrop somewhere in your decor, try to use it as as the background for some of your portraits as well.

Beautiful Backdrops!

Posted on July 29, 2013 by  Miss Passionate Bride   //   2 Comments

One goal for my wedding is to somehow create a unique and beautiful backdrop! I am not completely sure if I will want it to be behind the cake table, the bridal party/sweetheart table, the DJ, or maybe even where we will say “I do”. I think it’ll depend on what our venue is like (yup- still haven’t picked a venue, but we are getting closer!!). The great thing about backdrops is that they can be 100% personalized and even DIY! Check out some of the backdrop ideas I’ve found so far…

Say “Cheese”

A wedding photo booth is an entertaining addition to any celebration.  They make for great keepsakes, and your guests will have hours of fun striking poses for the camera!  If you know you would like to incorporate a photo booth into your big day, don’t settle for a boring black or white background.  Get creative and search for inspiration from your wedding theme or personality.  Unique photo booth ideas are fairly simple to design with a simple fabric backdrop or a unique wall of vintage photo frames.  Let your guests go crazy with exciting props and cutouts that are sure to create a memorable experience.

I’ve included a few of my favorite photo booths for inspiration, and each backdrop is more striking than the next!  Which is your favorite?  With so many options to choose from, and so many that are easy to design, it’s difficult to choose just one!

Talk about “wow” factor!!! A metallic backdrop is memorable and eye catching.

A background of live flowers is elegant and exciting.

Whimsical balloons are a creative prop that can double as a backdrop.

Make your vintage frames come alive on a wall of family photos.

Fun fabric and creative props can make for the best keepsakes.

If you still want a simple white background, get creative with big paper flowers.

Gorgeous Drapery Ideas

Posted on September 6, 2012 by  Miss Detailed Bride   //   1 Comment

If there’s any piece of décor that can really step up your wedding venue, it’s perfectly placed draperies.  This creates an impact in any reception hall, from an outdoor tent to an elegant ballroom.  There’s a sense of awe that comes over you when you walk into a reception and see waterfalls of white, cascading from the ceiling to the dance floor.

As a bride with a large ballroom as my reception hall, I have a lot of space to work with.  I absolutely love the idea of draping fabric across the ceiling.  Plus, if you’re looking to recreate the night sky indoors, adding twinkle lights under transparent fabric mimics the stars over your dance floor.

Long, draping fabric is the perfect way to create a focal point around the bride and groom.  A backdrop of flowing white looks gorgeous behind the bridal party or head table during the reception.

If you want to get the party started, and focus on dancing, why not use drapes to frame your dance floor?  This breaks up the reception hall, and creates the illusion of the dancing being separate from the dining area.  However, it is still open enough so that it doesn’t block the view of any of your guests.

Another great use for draperies:  to create an enclosure around your outdoor ceremony or reception.  This shuts out the rest of the world, and brings the focus directly where you want it.

With these pictures as my inspiration, I will definitely be exploring my options for draping at my reception hall.

We are having our ceremony and reception at the same place in the same room.  They section off the room with a curtain to hide the tables on the other side of the room.  I’d really like to create two different atmospheres though.  The best way I can think to do it is to have a unique backdrop for our ceremony.  I’m not sure how the logistics of it will work yet but I love the ideas I’ve seen so far.

The aisle runner turns into the backdrop!  We could write love song lyrics or poetry, the possibilities are endless.

The way the fabric is draped gives such a romantic feel.

This chalkboard is so cool.

I couldn’t tell at first but these are all clothespins.  A very cool backdrop and cost effective.

Our ceremony is inside and I don’t think we can get furniture in there but I love the look of this.

I’m not sure how this was done but it looks awesome.

I’ve seen pictures of paper crane backdrops a couple of times but every time I see them I love them.
