Fresh Florals & Geometric Ceremony Backdrops

Wedding altars can take on many different forms, shapes, and sizes. No two wedding arches are alike! From floral altars to green garlands, wedding arches are the ceremony staple that can be styled in so many different ways to create a beautiful wedding day backdrop. A new trend has emerged in the wedding industry that we here at IndyBride2B can’t get enough of! Clean lines and geometric shapes are the new take on the traditional wedding arch.

These geometric centerpieces can be done in several different colors shapes and sizes. Different materials can also be used. While some may DIY it with some stained wood, some may opt for an iron structure. This copper arch featured in a stylized shoot by Ruffled blog is one our absolute favs.

What we love about this arch is the floral arrangements that serve as the perfect accents for this arch. It wouldn’t be complete without those fresh and beautiful blooms that were carefully arranged and assembled by R Love Floral.

This hexagonal beauty also utilizes touches of fresh florals to accentuate the shape of this unique ceremony backdrop. The candles are a nice touch and the wooden materials used to construct the shape make for one fabulous woodland ceremony. Ceremony backdrops should flow seamlessly into the theme and decorative elements of your wedding. This ceremony does the perfect job of blending the ceremony decorations into the backdrop of the entire wedding— a gorgeous forest.

Looking for a hexagonal wooden arch? This one if currently for sale at on Etsy at an affordable price of $320. What each of these arches has in common is that the geometric shape serves as the base of the ceremony backdrop, but is then accentuated with decorative elements such as candles, florals (always a must) or hanging lights. Regardless of what decorations you choose, it’s crucial to not leave the wedding arch bare. A wooden structure alone isn’t enough to create a interest-worthy wedding setup. Be creative and consider your options! When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with some fresh flowers and potted plants.

Light & airy feathers and soft petal pink blooms are decorative elements that really make these ceremony backdrops stand out!

This triangle arch has us swooning! This simple geometric shape showcases clean lines and a minimalistic decorative approach that sits perfectly atop a grecian ceremony venue overlooking crystal clear blue waters. Destination wedding anyone??

These triangular beauties scream boho-desert wedding chic. But the great thing about wedding arches is that most of them are versatile under any landscape or location. The triangular arches are best accented with at least 1-2 floral arrangements located on the sides of the arches, but usually not right at the top where the two sections meet. Keep that in mind when decorating your arch!

If the hexagonal or triangle geometric-inspired backdrops feel a little too extreme for you, opt for a more traditional shape. A simple rectangular structure like this one will do the trick without straying too far away from tradition.

This color scheme is to die for! The bright pink and peach hues are reminiscent of a desert sunset.
