Seriously Stunning Ceremony Structures for Your Big Day

Ceremony & Vows, Wedding Style & Decor

Your wedding ceremony is undoubtedly the most photographed moment of your entire wedding. From your walk down the aisle to your first kiss (not to mention the sweet vows in between!), you can bet your photographer will capture every single moment. So it's important to put some serious thought into what kind of ceremony structure you want. Whether you're marrying in a spacious ballroom or barn, finding the right altar, arch, or chuppah to suit your space and your wedding's aesthetic can be a tough task.

So to help you with your planning, we gathered 30 picture-perfect ceremony structures for every single type of bride and venue. These standout designs are perfect for indoor or outdoor nuptials, and can be adjusted to match any season or style. For the romantic girl saying "I do" in a garden, we gathered lush floral arches with bright blooms. Rustic brides, consider a painted fireplace or wooden structure that feels special but understated. Prefer a bold bohemian vibe? Cool, colorful altars adorned with whimsical streamers give off an eclectic effect.

But whichever style you choose, you can feel confident that these statement-making structures will completely transform your ceremony space — and make for some incredible photos. And by focusing on creating such a gorgeous space to exchange vows, you can opt for less décor along the aisles. Simple potted arrangements or a petal-lined runner will pair perfectly with a decorative structure.
