When it comes to personalising your wedding, nothing can beat a good DIY. The perfect way to show off your craft and design skills is with a fun, impactful handmade backdrop. You can create a more modern installation for your loft or museum nuptials, or something playful for your garden celebration.  The only requirement is to have fun with it! From balloons, to dreamcatchers to giant gold hearts, the choices are endless, but we're sharing our absolute favourites below.

Dreamcatcher Backdrop

What is it about dreamcatchers that wins us over every time? If you love them as much as we do, why not use them to create a stunning wedding backdrop? To execute this look, pick up some   dreamcatchers  in different styles and sizes and hang them from rope or fishing line. These pretties will look just as great in front of a white wall as they do strung from a beautiful, big tree!

Fringe Paper Backdrop

An easy backdrop with a lot of impact is a fringe paper draped ceremony arch. To create this beauty, all you'll need is   crepe paper and  fringe scissors – and any existing structure, of course!  While the fun could totally stop right there, we like the idea of mixing the paper with fresh florals and greenery for a fun juxtaposition and a more playful vibe.

Wine Cork Moon Backdrop

For couples planning a DIY wedding, you might be thinking the more creative the idea the better.  Enter this wine cork moon backdrop, which is totally original and so much fun! And best of all, it's pretty easy to create with a piece of  plywood,  a bunch of   wine corks , some  wooden dowels, a little  fabric dye and a lot of  paint.

Giant Balloon Backdrop

What could be more fun than a backdrop of   oversized balloons?! There are plenty of ways to make it work: go for a streamlined look with a smaller selection, or create some whimsy with lots of balloons in different sizes fastened to a wall.  You really can't go wrong with an idea this sweet!

Paper Pinwheel Backdrop

For  a whimsical wedding with a playful vibe, we love the thought of a ceremony backdrop crafted from  paper pinwheels. Create a layered ombre effect by sticking within a palette, or go for a fun dose of color by selecting 3-5 different hues. You can affix the pinwheels to a piece of plywood or a wall at your venue and – easy as that – you're ready to go!

Giant Gold Heart Backdrop

To create a focal point for a glam or whimsical celebration, we love the idea of a giant gold heart backdrop. To craft your own, you'll first need to dremel a heart out of a sheet of plywood. To give your heart its shiny, gold hue, try  gold glitter spray paint or affixing sparkly,  gold contact paper to the surface.  The heart backdrop is perfect for your ceremony or photo booth!
