Inspiration of the Day: A Paper Chain Ceremony Backdrop

by Simone Hill

Paper chains get a serious sophisticated upgrade without losing their playful charm in this ceremony backdrop created by Barb Salzman, founder of Hatch Creative Studio. The paper chain garlands framed the the couple's vows in this chic loft-inspired space without blocking the natural light from the oversized windows as a wedding arch or fabric draping would have.

The best part about paper chains? They're an easy DIY and completely customizable. You can buy pre-made paper chains at LoxSavvy.com in a variety of colors in prints, or if you're the crafty WikiHow.com has a step-by-step tutorial. The key to pulling off the look is quantity and variety. By mixing and matching length, color, and size of paper chains, Barb created a luxe modern look from this time-tested party decoration.
