Whether you're holding your wedding ceremony indoors or outdoors, there are plenty of ways to suitably dress the space and make an impression on your wedding guests.

From barns to marquees and majestic grounds to far-flung destinations, there are more places than ever to hold your wedding ceremony. And while these are subject to licensing, the law review currently underway may see couples granted greater freedom to choose where they can legally marry. 

Whatever the location, there are lots of elements to consider when styling your wedding ceremony space. Think about flowers, chair sashes, pew ends, aisle runners and statement ceremony backdrops as a focal point. Take a look at these ceremony set-ups from real weddings across the country and abroad...
