We love the flower backdrop trend! If you haven’t seen any flower backdrop photos all over the wedding blogs or Pinterest, this is the place to be.
These flower backdrops are the perfect DIY budget wedding project. Using different types of flowers, different colors, and different locations can make this look suitable for any wedding theme. Keep scrolling to see some of the coolest flower backdrops we have found so far, as well as a tutorial from A Practical Wedding!
How bold and beautiful is this?! The strung big bright gerbera daisies are perfect for the colorful boho theme. A floral backdrop is perfect for a bright wedding color scheme like this or even a party! Blue, pink, or yellow daises could be strung and hung up to add that extra pop at a baby shower.

There are hanging flowers all over this wedding! There are beautifully attached stems of roses, astilbe, and greenery on the entrance curtains! There are also rose heads strung and hanging down in various locations. AND we cant forget about the beautiful stems hanging on a T-stand on the table! Amazing! The flowers used and location of these backdrops give a romantic garden feel. The roses look perfect in the background of the photos. And check out how the hanging candles next to the flower backdrop add amazing ambiance to this beautiful wedding.

Hanging hydrangeas?! How clever! This flower backdrop uses white hydrangeas, and carnations hung with twine and attached to a tree. This look perfect encompasses the rustic, romantic outdoor theme.

Those peach carnations… wow! There are only 10-20 heads on each strand. With 15 strands you only need about 200 peach carnations! That comes to less than $200. Add 4 bunches of pink larkspur to create the additional hanging stem arch, and you are at about $300 to create the same look! The peach flower backdrop gives another very romantic feel, use orange or yellow and create a vibrant feel, or white to get a softer look.

Another awesome flower backdrop with carnations! Can you see how a change/mix of colors creates a totally different look and feel? These carnations are such a warm blend of colors that contrast the blue in the rest of the wedding. The same technique used for stringing the carnations can also be used to make leis, like what the bride and groom are wearing!
