April 5, 2021

Looking for ways to make a beautiful statement at your wedding, and not sure how to do it? A backdrop can give you that picture perfect moment you’re looking for! A lot of times they’re a great piece to repurpose throughout your whole day as well. Start off by saying your “I Do’s” in front of it, to placing it behind your head table to frame yourselves during dinner, and finish off the night with it as a photo-op spot. No matter the look you go for or fits your vibe, it’s sure to be a piece that you’ll love for years to come looking at photos!

Macramé curtains and tropical flowers are all the rage right now!
