Macramé may have had its heydey in the 1970s, but the knotted handicraft is making a comeback — especially in wedding ceremony décor. Brides seeking a boho look for their wedding are making macramé modern again by incorporating it into their celebrations in fresh, unexpected ways. Take these six macramé ceremony backdrops, for example — they're making us want to hop on the macramé bandwagon all over again.

Macramé Backdrop with Hanging Flowers (above): A ceremony altar with a floor-grazing macramé backdrop and hanging potted flower arrangements is perfectly boho-chic.

Tropical: Add lush-green palm leaves and fronds to give your woven ceremony backdrop some tropical flair.

Macramé Canopy: This wood-frame chuppah features a woven-cotton backdrop and matching canopy.

Oversize Dreamcatcher: A giant woven dreamcatcher adorned with fresh blooms is perfect for a boho bride.

Modern and Minimal: For a unique twist on this wedding trend, exchange vows in front of multiple macramé panels hung at varying heights.
