We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their best tips for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.
If your wedding venue doesn't provide just the right backdrop for your vows, you can DIY or buy something special to spruce it up! Click through to see how these couples warmed up their wedding venues with the help of fabrics, lights, textures, and colors, and put their own personal stamp on what might be an otherwise blank space. Imagine all the fun photo booth pictures you could snap in front of some of these!
