From floral arbors to rustic wooden chuppahs, there are plenty of ways to create a gorgeous backdrop for your vows.

Since your vows are one of the most photographed moments of your entire wedding, it's important to put some serious thought into your ceremony altar. Whether you're tying the knot in a grand ballroom or barn, finding the right type of structure that fits the space and vibes with your wedding aesthetic can be a tough task.

Luckily, we found 73 picture-perfect ceremony structures for every single type of bride and venue. Are you a romantic girl marrying in a garden? You'll love a lush floral arch. Leaning towards more of a bohemian feel? Cool, colorful altars adorned with whimsical streamers give off an eclectic, artsy effect. Consider saying "I do" in front of a fireplace or wooden creation if you're throwing a more rustic celebration. From the traditional to the unexpected, there are countless ways to decorate at the end of the aisle.

Also, remember that choosing a statement-making ceremony structure will completely transform your space. Not to mention these pretty pieces will make for some seriously stunning photos. Plus, if you focus on creating an incredible area to say "I do," you'll be able to get away with more understated décor along your aisle. We recommend pairing these creative altars with a simple, petal-lined aisle or place a few potted arrangements every few seats to keep the focus on the grand finale.
