Wedding Altar Ideas For Every Bride-to-Be


From wild driftwood to crystal chandeliers and flowing drapery, the possibilities for a stunning wedding altar are truly endless. We love when our couples bring their personality and creativity into their wedding decor, and a fabulous altar is no exception! Take a look at some of our favorite altars for some spectacular wedding-day inspiration.

Decorative wedding altars make for swoon-worthy wedding photos that you will cherish for years to come. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, bring natural elements into the altar with twisted vines - the perfect compliment to any and all wedding flowers. Adorning your altar with cascading greenery and romantic florals will instantly bring life to your wedding decor.

Double french doors can be a great piece to create your own altar entryway. Whether accented with rustic touches or flowing drapery for a more elegant feel, this can be the perfect look for any wedding style. Another beautiful option? Create an altar structure out of your favorite novels. Nothing is more romantic than exchanging vows surrounded by all of your favorite love stories.

On occasion, a stunning backdrop can be perfectly accented with a simple altar. For the bride who has found the perfect mountaintop or hilly vista for their ceremony location, we highly recommend letting the scenery do the talking. A few florals or candle filled lanterns may be all that you need to create the perfect setting.

For the bride looking to create a romantic or elegant atmosphere, we recommend utilizing a few simple pieces for a big impact. Incorporating a crystal chandelier and sheer curtains make a unique decor piece for a swoon-worthy altar set-up that you’ll be dreaming about for years to come.
