10 Unique Wedding Ceremony Backdrops w/D.I.Y. Projects

The old-fashioned wedding arch decorated with vines & fabric is frankly a little boring, so we've put together an awesome list of alternative unique ceremony backdrops to inspire you. Even better than that we've included some links to handmade Etsy products you will adore & some great D.I.Y. projects.

We adore this awesome LOVE Balloon ceremony backdrop. Balloons are awesome, and this photograph is via 100 Layer Cake via Avery House.

If you're looking to recreate the look you can get LOVE Letter Balloons on Amazon for less than $15 & the gold star balloons for less than $10.

Below is a beautiful wall mounted ceremony backdrop featuring greenery, wood, & some creative word art from the Mixed Metals Wedding Inspiration post via the Ruffled blog.

If you're looking something similar to purchase check out these You & Me Wood Letters from Etsy shop kygracedesigns that you can get in any color & retail for only $66.00.

You can also go totally D.I.Y. and make them yourself with a jigsaw, some M.D.F. hardboard, paint, a projector or stencils & a little time using the project How to Cut Large Letters With a Jigsaw via All Things Thrifty. Or opt for something a little lighter, and easier to transport, by following the D.I.Y. project How to Make a Large Monogram the Easy Way via the In My Own Style blog.


One of the coolest ideas we've seen for a background is a projected silhouette from the post Creative Ceremony Backdrops on the I Do Love It blog, and it's not that hard to do it yourself.

You'll need a projector, your laptop, awesome high-quality silhouette images, and a portable projection screen. You can also use the setup to show movies to guests (even while camping!), photo slideshows, and/or as a backdrop for a D.I.Y. photo booth.



The most beautiful origami ceremony backdrop we could find is shown below via Green Wedding Shoe's post on Hunger Games Wedding Inspiration, and features tiny gold paper cranes and white draped fabric.

With a few crafty friends, some gold foil paper, & this awesome YouTube Tutorial from Tavin's Origami Instructions you can do this project yourself. Or if you're in a rush you can purchase 100 miniature gold paper cranes from Etsy seller Persephones Tree for only $20.



Using a giant customized chalkboard as wedding backdrop is a great idea if you know someone who can draw and you're up to a D.I.Y. project, or if you're willing to use a printed vinyl backdrop instead.

We found this beautiful photograph on the post Photobooths + Weddings via Amy Rizzuto Photography, and you can create the same backdrop for your wedding by mounting chalkboard contact paper onto plywood - and make sure to rub your chalkboard lightly with chalk all over first to prevents future ghost lines. 



If you love bright colors like I do you'll love this D.I.Y. Festive Streamer Backdrop from Rachel of Heart of Light via 100 Layer Cake. It's just awesome. It covers how to get the awesome fringe effect to where to get the cheapest crepe paper folds, which just happen to be made in the U.S.

Even better, this D.I.Y. ceremony backdrop was created to be rolled up on dowels in sections so that transporting it is super easy.



This moss & flower backdrop is beautiful. and could totally be a D.I.Y. project with sheets of moss, a hot glue gun, and some artificial flowers. We found this beautiful example via Green Wedding Shoes.



If you can find the right tree this is an extremely easy an inexpensive ceremony backdrop. And we love this example from the Villa Woodbine Outdoor Ceremony Space post on The Knot.

Drape fabric over two branches, and a few lights, & voila - perfect for a backyard wedding.



We love this D.I.Y. bookshelf backdrop via Capitol Romance, especially with the little potted terra cotta plants mixed into the decor.



And you can always bring the indoors outdoors with a barn door backdrop - perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. The beautiful example below is from Mon Cheri Bridal.
