When you're saying "I do," it's best to set the ever-important scene with a dramatic backdrop. And as you search for ceremony backdrop inspiration for your wedding, you'll learn that you can do no wrong with a flower-covered arch, a light installation, or a hanging grid of greenery. (Seriously, so pretty!) But here's a thought: What if you took the floral arch full circle? Like, literally full circle. Imagine a circle-shaped installation that's basically a ring covered in something pretty—palm fronds for a beach bash, pink roses for a garden party, rustic greenery for a mountain affair. It makes the same statement as the arch, but it's a fresh idea your guests have never seen before, which, you'll also learn, is a driving force in your planning process.
And even if you're marrying in a church or have another ceremony backdrop in mind, you're in luck: This trend can easily be utilized elsewhere in your big-day setup. We've seen it done as an escort-card display (so easy, you just clip the cards on the ring!), as a hanging installation behind the head table, and even as an addition to a super-cool getaway ride (more on that later). So no matter where you're using it, think of the circle as the new chic, modern, and easily personalized approach to your wedding decor. What more can you ask for?
How dreamy! We're loving this frond-covered altar for a modern beach bash.
Make your escort-card display do double duty as a statement backdrop too.
A historic palace venue, mix-and-match vintage chairs, a greenery-lined aisle, and an epic circle installation? Yep, it's almost too much goodness to handle. Almost.
If this isn't pure romance, we don't know what is. Say "I do" in front of a wheel of garden roses, and then pose for some seriously frame-worthy portraits.
Hang metallic rings, decorated with bunches of fuchsia flowers and foliage, at varying levels to create a statement-making backdrop behind the head table.
Natural brides, take note. This airy hoop almost blends into the field of uncut grass, yet it still makes for the perfect framed photo op.
See! You really can put wreaths anywhere, as demonstrated by this adorable couple who added them to their getaway boat.
This modern pink-and-orange circle is the perfect contrast to its rustic backdrop. Add in pops of color down the aisle, wooden lanterns, and pretty white chairs and you've got a boho-meets-farm wedding. (Who knew that was a thing?)
This winner almost looks like the Olympic rings—but with flowing ferns, tulips, and calla lilies.
To put a boho touch on a greenery-covered wreath, simply add strands of flowing ribbon at the bottom. Pretty pink blooms don't hurt either!
Do your ceremony in ankle-deep water with the help of a circle backdrop. And how pretty does the slate-gray greenery look with the groom's suit and the bride's dress?! Color-coordinated perfection.
