It’s where you’ll recite your vows, where you’ll join hands, where you’ll say “I do,” and where you’ll share your first kiss as husband and wife.
Whether you envision cascading florals, hundreds of candles or simply a shady elm, the backdrop to where you start your life together should be as special and unique as the two of you. Luckily, the options know no end when it comes to ceremony altar decor. Paper banners, pom poms, origami, ribbons, drapery — you name it, it’s been done. We’ve seen complete white-outs as well as bright bursts of color, and soft romantic as well as urban contemporary.
Something that’s important for couples to keep in mind when planning their ceremony decor is to consider the location. Sometimes simple is the most sophisticated of all, especially when there’s a sweeping view or abundant foliage already provided by nature. Look to your space, your theme and to each other, and the the rest will fall into place.
