No other color besides pink, or may be red, conveys love and calmness the best. A pink backdrop is sure to accentuate the blush that comes to the face of a soon to be married couple. Flowers at the top of the curtain will simply add elegance to the ethereal atmosphere.
Diffused Lights Behind an Off-white Curtain

This backdrop gives the entire setting a sublime glow. Instead of using flashy vibrant lights, the soft diffused light gives a tender and sober feel to the wedding. Decorative oak leaves or small pine branches can be used to add a natural touch to the decor.
A Flower Arch/Arbor with White Curtains

A perfect backdrop for an outdoor summer wedding, adding seasonal flowers at the corners and creepers along the borders of the arch, along with white curtains provides a picture-perfect touch to the entire venue. A dash of colorful rose petals on the floor will make the altar even more special.
Sheer Fabric Curtains with Silk Flowers

Transparent curtains are a uniquely glorious variation to the oft-used white curtain idea. The USP of this backdrop is the see-through ability that provides a natural backdrop, and adds a gracious and chic touch to the entire decor.
The Cowboy Ranch Theme

A rural, back-to-the-roots ranch theme can look simply delightful. Aesthetically arranged hay stock piles, gunny fabric used as curtains, cane baskets, and flowers for decoration lend simplicity, nostalgia, and warmth to the ambiance.
An Earthy Rustic Feel

A Backdrop That Narrates Your Story

What could be a better way to celebrate your journey from the first date to the courtship to the day you proposed, than by sketching this journey on a blackboard and using it as a backdrop. You could hire a professional artist to sketch out illustrations depicting every important milestone of your relationship. From the first dedicated song to the long ride/drive, to the first kiss, to the first Valentines Day. A truly unique and memorable way to cherish the start of a long and happy journey.
A Creative Origami Theme

For those couples who would like to do something creative, how about employing the Japanese paper-folding technique of origami to create cute objects and using them as a backdrop. You could hang paper swans or cranes from the ceiling at the center frame along with butterflies and paper hearts on the border. This could truly be a wonderful backdrop that is appreciated and enjoyed by the young and the old alike.
