I was thinking it would be so pretty to have tall planks nailed together and stained differing colors (for a vintage look) for the backdrop of the ceremony, and then for the backdrop of the sweetheart table.
But with staining like the back wall of this bookcase:
Or would that be too busy? I could go with just one color.
Essentially, I just want to break up the big green field we’re getting married in and have some contrast for pictures! It’ll be huge, but we can definitely make it and we’d only have to move it once (from the ceremony across the field to the reception) and that’s what little brothers are for?
What do you think? Any other ideas?

@208bride: I think it’s a great idea.You could probably build it out of wood pallets which you can find free lot of places.
Do a search for pallet backdrop on Pinterest.

@julies1949: Awesome idea. I just did a quick search for free pallets on my local area’s Craigslist and BAM, tons of offers. I have to wait for the snow to go away so I can store them in my backyard, but I’m sure there will be posts then too! I was thinking larger pieces would be easier/quicker to assemble on the spot, but then I was thinking we could assemble it in four parts or so at the house to easily transport it then just hammer it together real quick at the site.
