Wedding Ceremony Swag with Style

If you love the look of fabric blowing in the wind like we do then consider swagging your wedding ceremony structure with just the right amount of color coordinated fabric to make a big impact right when your guests walk in.  Isn’t it romantic to say “I do” under a trellis of beautiful dupioni silk or sheer chiffon flickering with the ocean behind it during your beach wedding?  We certainly think so!  Be mindful not to over do it and block that beautiful view.  But just the right amount (a few panels) can help make your ceremony an unforgettable setting, in addition to the one you already selected!  Or, opt for a grand entrance to that ceremony and swag the doorway or entry point to wow guests once they walk in.  It’s amazing what a little fabulous fabric can do!

At a destination wedding chances are you’ve selected a stunning backdrop for your wedding ceremony.  Barefoot on the beach or high above the city, you might need a marker to tell guests where on the strip of seven mile beach you’ll be exchanging “I do’s.”  Consider a ceremony arch that doesn’t detract from the beautiful backdrop, but enhances it.  And the best way to do that?  Pull from your natural surroundings or the local culture and infuse the locale into your vows.  Here are a few ideas we’re loving this week!  (We’ve even found a fun idea if you can’t have a destination wedding, instead you can bring the backdrop to you!)  Sand or snow, these ideas will kick off your event in style!

Sometimes the design can be as ornate as the colors inspired by the culture around you.  Other times, a simply stunning pattern on the grass is enough to mark the spot while nothing obstructs the view in front of you.  The sky’s the limit, especially at a destination wedding location!  What will you wed under?
