Romantic, magical and unique altars for your religious ceremony

If there is something that really fascinates us about weddings, it’s the ritual and tradition of a religious ceremony. In them, we can witness an undoubted romance, traditions that give us goose bumps and ultimately, surprising details that can really elevate the decor of this formal event. Trends in decor are leaning towards natural landscapes, and here we show you the most beautiful altars for your ceremony. With stunning colors and diverse inspirations… You will love these creations!

Making the most of the warmer months and the magical touch that fall brings us, the best choice would be to hold your ceremony outdoors. For this it’s best to take your time and really think about the decor for your chosen venue, particularly your altar. This main focal point of your wedding can be made to look really spectacular, something that can take your breath away as you walk down the aisle.

To help us decide which altars we think are the best for a religious ceremony, we’ve taken into account various inspirations and themes. For example, casual weddings with a fun element can really exploit a young feel and bold colors. You can create this look with a multicolored backdrop; you can also accompany these original details with antique furniture to match your style. On the other hand, paper and DIY decor can be taken to another extreme with large three dimensional flowers.

Vintage futniture can be an integral part in making your altar look really special. There are many ways in which to use furniture to achieve this; for example you could choose two white doors, that will contrast perfectly against the green grassy landscape, and place your initials on them. If you’re looking for something out of this world, then you could decorate your altar with a structure resembling a castle. This would look fenomenal!

If you want to create a scene where movement and fluidity play witness to your union, then include textiles in the decor of your altar. You could design a backdrop where fabrics in neutral tones adorn the romanticism and the hidden magic of this beautiful ritual. To these fabrics you could add a touch of color in the form of floral arrangements, always trying to keep in harmony with your chosen color scheme. Or give your altar a Mexican feel with DIY  perforated paper cut outs.

Finally, branches and dried flowers can also add a fantastic dimension to your altar. Choose flowers that complement your look, or the style of your bouquet. The most important thing is that you combine the structure or look of your altar with its natural landscape or location to complement it perfectly.

We adore these altars, and believe that a special moment in time deserves a special look that you will remember forever.
