Fire is magic: fire warms up, gives light and cozies up any space at once, and the same can be said about fireplaces – they symbolize fire even if there’s no fire in it. Fireplaces and mantels are trending now as the coolest wedding backdrops, and they can be used both indoors and outdoors. As the cold season is coming, a fireplace is a great backdrop idea to think about, besides, it may be a ceremony backdrop or an addition to your cozy lounge. Let’s take a look at some chic ideas and maybe you’ll see your perfect backdrop here.
A fireplace clad with brick, stone, marble, concrete and even wood is right what you need for creating a warming ambience and a cozy feel. Choose a look to match your wedding style and theme: a marble fireplace will be ideal for a minimalist wedding, a stone one will be amazing for a rustic one. Decorate your fireplace with lush greenery and blooms, you may also add an airy runner of fabric for a more refined feel. Is your fireplace a working one? If yes, then don’t hesitate to make it work for your ceremony and light up your couple. If not, you may go two ways: put some firewood inside the fireplace and leave it as it is. The second idea is to fill your fireplace with candles, add them all around and on the mantel, too. The candles will imitate a real fire and will cozy up your space at once.
