The Prettiest Ceremony Backdrops (Made Entirely of Greenery!)

Flowers, Wedding Style & Decor

One thing every wedding should have? A beautiful ceremony backdrop. Whether you go all out à la Kim and Kanye with a wall made entirely of fresh flowers or prefer a simple DIY backdrop of fresh greenery, an eye-catching display will enliven your ceremony space and wow your guests. Though we've seen our fair share of stunning ceremony backdrops exploding with fresh blooms, we also love ones constructed entirely of fresh greenery. Here are six of our favorites:

Greenery Arch (above): An elegant archway constructed out of fresh greenery is a great way to bring the outdoors into an indoor venue.

Overhead Installation: For something striking and modern, have your florist suspend greenery above the ceremony space.

Boxwood Wall: Make a statement with your ceremony backdrop—this wall was constructed out of boxwoods and displayed a favorite quote.

Tropical Greenery: For a summer or destination wedding, we love this lush ceremony backdrop created using bright-green tropical foliage.

Botanical Garden: How stunning is this ceremony set up? Botanical tableaus of overgrow potted pants and ivy, as well as candles, flank the ceremony space; garlands of ivy and draped chiffon are suspended overhead, creating a soft, romantic feel.
