Gorgeous Wedding Backdrops
That Aren't Fabric
A wedding backdrop is essential regardless of the theme, mood, or scale of the event. From enhancing the look of the head table to revamping a dull, undecorated space and serving as a photo booth, backdrops do it all. But the real game-changer is choosing the right kind of backdrop to use. While we love the classic look of fabric backdrops, it’s about time that we experimented with other design elements like balloons, flowers, and more. Here are our top five gorgeous wedding backdrop ideas that aren't fabric!
Hanging Flowers and Flower Walls
Perhaps the best alternative to fabric is a floral backdrop. This instantly creates a luxurious and impressive look. Flowers are a spectacular way to create a focal point and work almost anywhere. The ideal space for a floral backdrop is the place you would like to draw attention to. You can use them as a gorgeous backdrop ceremony backdrop for exchanging vows, at the ceremony entrance, photo-booths, or behind the dessert bar.
Balloon Garland with Paper Flowers
There is something so fun about balloons because they scream PARTY TIME! We have seen balloons making appearances at weddings before. Nowadays, balloon garlands and installations combined with dramatic neon signs, romantic flowers, organic greenery, or other unique elements such as DIY paper flowers are very popular. You can use a balloon garland in so many ways, from fun arches to wedding backdrops, or hang them over the reception space ceiling, so get creative!
Natural Wood with Asymmetric Flowers
Using a natural wood frame is an excellent new way to create an innovative wedding backdrop. Wooden arches or frames exude an old-fashioned charm. If you add silk flower garlands, its look will become even more dramatic and rustic. Or else you can use flowing fabric for an added accent that is perfect for both indoor and outdoor events.
Hanging Hoops and Wreath Rings
Hoops and rings are probably the most versatile of all wedding backdrop elements. Buy some affordable floral hoops and you can create a gorgeous DIY backdrop. Use floral wires or zip ties to attach the greenery or you can also create wreath rings to give the event a more festive feel and environment. Just make sure to keep in mind the wedding venue before selecting hanging hoops for your backdrop so that you can easily hang them.
Dried Flowers and Pampas Grass
Given its size and volume, pampas grass will be a great addition to a boho-inspired wedding backdrop. You can use it in a modern and minimalistic manner, or go all out and create gorgeous pampas grass cloud installations for your ceiling. Place large pampas grass arrangements with dried flowers at the reception/entrance space to give your guests the warmest welcome ever. Or frame them asymmetrically around the seating area. The neutral shade of pampas grass will create an incredibly unique look with colorful dried flowers.
While we can’t argue that the all-fabric backdrops are gorgeous as it is, sometimes it's fun to mix in other looks especially with modern decorative elements like flowers and balloons. Choose a fabric-less backdrop, and you will be amazed by the results. For more design inspirations and wedding decor ideas, don’t forget to follow @LeilaniParties on Instagram!
