Your wedding photos are something you'll cherish for a lifetime, so it's important to get it right. When considering wedding photo backdrops, your first port of call should be to talk to your vendors about backdrop ideas to see if you can work together to bring your vision to life—you never know, they might have something perfect up their sleeve. Alternatively, you can shop for wedding photo backdrops online, but the key is to know where to look. To give you a helping hand, we've selected our favorite indoor and outdoor backdrops for your ceremony or reception.
