Outdoor wedding ceremonies are very popular all the year round, and a cool backdrop, arch, altar or at least view is a must for such a wedding. If you are tying the knot in a woodland space or if there are some trees around, why not use them as a wedding arch or instead of a wedding backdrop? A living tree wedding backdrop is a very natural idea and looks unusual. I’ve gathered some ideas to decorate such a tree for a wedding ceremony, let’s get inspired!
Lights, Lanterns And Chandeliers
Lights of all kinds and looks are always a great idea to make your tree stand out, and they will create an intimate ambience. Cover the whole tree with string lights, or go for vertical lights clusters hanging on the branches, or just hang some lights on the branches. Lanterns and candle lanterns can be a nice alternative but keep in mind that they give less light. If you want a glam or refined touch to the ceremony space, opt for cool glam crystal chandeliers. Feel free to mix and combine the options as you like and enjoy!

Flowers And Greenery
If you are looking for something exquisite and unusual, try covering the trunk of the tree with fresh flowers that fit your wedding decor and color scheme. Cover the whole trunk and some branches if needed to create a fantastic look, add greenery if you want. another idea is rocking a floral or greenery garland hanging on the branches, such an idea is often combined with ethereal fabric and glam chandeliers.
