Looking for some advice on backdrop sizes. I want it to be wide enough that both my fiance and I can stand in front of it comfortably with our officiant between us. Also, need it to be tall enough (my fiance is 6′ 1″) without being too tall/short. I am thinking possibly corrugated sheet metal or something with an industrial feel (our venue is a warehouse space) with some greenery around it. What would be the best dimensions for a backdrop like this? Also if you have other industrial material suggestions that might work, I’m all ears!
Thanks in Advance!

I always think copper is beautiful – you could do something out of copper sheeting for an industrial-meets-glam feel

FutureMrsLucas: Good idea! I think the corrugated sheet metal would look great. If it comes in 8 foot sheets, I would use the full 8 feet and probably do at least 6 feet wide.
Part of that decision making depends on the size of you venue, so the backdrop doesn’t look miniscule, or if you need to hide anything with the backdrop.
I would go to an industrial salvage yard, look around and see what you can find.

ilovesophia: That’s a great idea. The venue has a lot of exposed brick and cement, Im sure copper would go really nicely with it. Thanks!
julies1949: Thank you so much! Those pictures are definitely the style i am going for, a little rusty, a little vintage, but industrial. I plan on checking out some salvage yards for sure. There are tall ceilings in the space so that’s important to keep in mind. Great advice thanks again!

My fiance is 6’2, and we’re going with a backdrop that is about 8 feet high and 6 feet wide.
