Nearly the weekend again and we our usual excited selves this Friday. Since summer is here we’re looking at outdoor wedding ideas and today we have some outdoor ceremony backdrops for you to take a look at. First we take a look at what happened here during the week- we started off in Maine on Sat for Whitney and Tim’s stunning wedding by the sea. On Monday we had some floral inspiration in the form of tulips- from Amsterdam of course!

On Tuesday, One and Only Paris shared the beautiful elopement of Laura and David before heading to Northern Ireland on Wednesday for this wedding by This Modern Love.

Yesterday we sat back to enjoy April and Philips wedding on film and today, we are taking you around the blogesphere once again! Our FAB 5 picks of the week are….

A wedding in the Tuscan Countryside – Beautiful beautiful beautiful!

A Contemporary African Bridal Shoot – Now here is a statement necklace!

A Nautical Portuguese Wedding – Just loving the fresh details!

Luxury Wedding in Cabo Azul Resort – Daydreaming

Magic in Morocco – FAB

Friday Ideas ✈ Outdoor Ceremony Backdrops

Our inspiration pick this week is outdoor ceremony backdrops for those of you having a blessing abroad or outside. Here are 5 ideas that we love and that are practical with a bit of planning ahead, well maybe all but one!


Easy to carry or buy abroad but such an eye catching detail. If you can’t manage to put up a structure to tie them to, we love how they look draped across a tree. Easy peasy

Paper Flowers

Loving these gigantic paper flowers. Might be a bit tricky to carry abroad but if you have a few days to relax before your big day, these would a make a really enjoyable DIY project with family and friends. Otherwise, downsize. The paper crane and flower garland can be made before you leave, packed in a small box and assembled when you arrive! Gorgeous.

We will never tire of bunting. It’s so pretty and makes decorating so simple, not to mention packing!

OK, maybe not one for a destination wedding but we had to include them. If you have a crafty man / woman in your life, then get them to work! These make such a statement.

We know that travelling abroad can sometimes mean leaving important family and friends behind which is why this backdrop idea is our favourite. Place pictures of your loved ones into the frames and take them with you. They will be right alongside you as you say I do.
