ribbon and fabric backdrop for wedding

Ribbons, Lace and Fabric

A simple ribbon and tulle curtain is one of the easiest DIY backdrop options you have. If you want a funky backdrop with lots of colours, keep your options limited to ribbons. If you want a more elegant look, add tulle strips, lace cut in strips, and of course single colour ribbons. Look for pastel shades for a vintage look like tiffany blue, pale orange, light pink, and purple. All you need to do is attach fabric strips and ribbons to a wire with safety pins. Make sure to acetate ribbons as they are cheaper and strips and ribbons should be 8-9 foot in length. Although the hanging backdrop will look lovely, but you can always spice it up with attaching tiny flowers down the length of the ribbon. You can also attach cardboard letters to spell Love or I Do. No matter what colour you choose, ribbon and fabric garlands will look stupendous. Other creative ways to use ribbons is make a tent like structure hanging them from the centre of the ceiling to the sides. Or you can also tie them at the back of the chair.
