Not planning to deck up your wedding venue with all those larger-than-life photobooths yet get pretty awesome wedding photos? Well, we've got an equally beguiling and beauteous option for you, i.e. a wedding backdrop. Wedding backdrops are a mini-version of photobooths. They are nothing but artsy walls created with whimsical decor elements like flowers, candles, drapes, fairy lights, shimmer and more. 

Wedding backdrops are affordable in comparison to photo booths and take considerably a smaller chunk of your wedding budget. What's even more special about them is that they can be incorporated in your wedding decorations in so many different ways (without occupying a lot of space). Whether you want to use them to deck up your wedding stage, jazz up your entrance area or simply put it up anywhere across your wedding venue for some fun photos, you can do it all! But before you go ahead with the idea of incorporating one in your wedding, take a look at some of the best wedding backdrop ideas that we've chalked out for you!
