Ceremony Altars for Outdoor Weddings

Here are six spectacular ideas for turning any lawn, field, or backyard into a space with vow appeal.

Star Bright

How magical to marry by moonlight (with a little low-wattage help). Hang decorative metallic pinatas from tree branches festooned with twinkly lights, and flank the aisle with glowing orbs for an out-of-this-world aura.

Metallic pinatas, $140 each, Confetti System. Hurricanes, $125 each, Abigails Tabletop. Candles, $8 each, Design Ideas. Orbs and carnival string lights, Luminous Designs. Tables and white tablecloth, Classic Party Rentals. White fringe, $39.99 per 36-by-88-inch panel, Shop Wild Things.

Tip: Spotlight your altar by encircling a stately tree with a sectional table, then topping it with an array of gust-proof hurricane lamps.
