Would you rather say your “I dos” under a floral arch or in front of a bold backdrop? Which ceremony decor gets your vote?

    Definitely don’t want to block the view behind us, it’s the whole reason we chose that location, so we may not even do an arch.

    Blooms! Although we are getting married with a lake view behind us, so I opted for two wooden stands that will hold white lanterns with florals on top, but really desperately wanting to not block the already beautiful scenery.

    I love the blooms! But we are getting married in a church and not allowed to have anything besides a small arrangement!

    Backdrop I guess? Getting married in a small church and I'm only doing aisle decor, nothing up front

    Floral arch! I love circle/moongate arches completely covered in beautiful flowers.

    Blooms or greenery. I feel like the words are distracting, but I've seen other forms of backdrops that I liked.

    Florals! I love the huge, floral builds with interesting arches. Ours won’t be nearly as extensive ($&dollar, but we’ll have some pretty florals on our gazebo.

    So are arbor is going to be done with drapery, dream catchers, & lanterns. So I guess you could say backdrop.

    Tough choice! I loveeee blooms. All depends on the backdrop too though. Some can be too distracting or take away.

    Blooms looks nice but backdrop seems more economical
