Happy weekend everyone! I’m changing things up a little bit, and will be posting the Detail To Love posts on Saturdays from now on, since Fridays will now have two wedding features. This week’s detail is a fabulous idea for bring attention to your sweetheart (or head) table… a unique backdrop! There are several ways you could a sweetheart table backdrop… make one, use drape, or even just find an awesome spot in your venue! Check out these options…

This couple created their backdrop using reclaimed wood, accenting it with some fabulous yarn-and-nail letters. It’s a big DIY project, but it’s fabulous, don’t you think?!

This couple, Deanna and Sean (friends of mine actually!), had a backdrop created for their sweetheart table using unique lime-green wallpaper. Their designers covered a plank with wallpaper, creating their own “wall” to set their table in front of.

This sweetheart table had a “cabana” of drape created to go around their sweetheart table. A look like this is perfect for an elegant and modern wedding… and they even had a unique chandelier hanging above their table too! 

I love that each of these examples is a totally different style. That’s what is so great about doing a sweetheart table backdrop- it’s a perfect way to infuse your wedding’s style and design a little more without having to go all-out.

So what do you think? Would you do a sweetheart table backdrop or something to dress up your sweetheart or head table?
