The ceremony is the most important and the most photographed half of the entire wedding day. During this time, you have the vow exchange, the first kiss, a solemn exit — and you become officially hitched! The place where a groom and a bride exchange their wedding vows should be absolutely beautiful and eternal just like their promises of love. We’ve rounded up some of the most original wedding altar decoration ideas in different styles like boho, country rustic, romantic designs, whether you’ll have the ceremony in a chapel, backyard or on a beach. See our gallery for more inspiration!
