Use Plenty Of Rosettes
These are another great go-to decoration, especially if you’re inspired by colour and texture. Mix and match different rosettes to create a wall display that really comes to life! Add in a few plan or coloured paper pom-poms for more volume and impact. Use a single colour to highlight your venue or colour scheme to match the decor or environment, or try an ombre arrangement to add subtle variation and colour pallet.
Keep It Crystal Clear
Rather Than lots of colour and distractions If you’re someone who always loves more sparkle and bling, use crystal curtains to bedazzle your ceremony. Hang them from an arch, arbor or even a low hanging tree branch at an outdoor wedding ceremony. Add a chandelier or clear LED lighting to really make the crystals pop, why not add an abundance of creamy white flowers to match your bouquets and aisle decor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tie The Knot In More Than One Way
This clever idea is a modern twist on a classic theme. Find some rope, ribbon, or twine and tie in some loops and whorls! Use different types of knots, or mix a variety of rope and ribbon. Embellish this backdrop with greenery, flowers, or with your monogram placed in the centre you can also place cards or scrolls into the hoops of the rope for your guesses to leave messages
Chalk It Up For a classy black and white backdrop you can personalize however you want, try using a giant chalkboard! Grab some 4” x 8” plywood or Masonite (you’ll want the surface to be smooth), and paint over it with our Shabby Chic Chalk Style Paint. If you want a pop of colour at your altar, use red or teal. For a subtle look, use a pastel base and draw your design in a darker colour.
