Help! Easy aisle backdrop ideas

Hey girls!

It's been a while! I was so busy at work and couldn't find time to start a blog. I finally started it now. 

I have almost everything ready for the wedding, except of the catering company (i wanna change it). Also I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what to use as aisle backdrop. If you remember, it's kinda destination wedding. I will arrive to South Korea a week before the wedding, and will arrive to the venue just a day before the wedding, so I do not have time for fancy DIY (only if it is something I can bring with me).

Please see the photos of the place below. I want to locate the aisle in the campfire zone. Any ideas how to decorate it? It needs to be something easy-to bring. Flower arches are above my budget. I hope you can help, because I am desperate to find any ideas.

these are hand made fans out of craft/scrapbooking paper and attached to a canvas.  you could easily do something like this.  attach it to canvas or whatever you are gonna use with the diy stand above.  since your ceremony is gonna be out in the open any backdrop has to be free standing.  i would think you would need buy the materials to put it all together in the us and just assemble in Korea.

this is from a Korean wedding.  i saw the fans and thought you could just buy some in bulk to use for the backdrop.  Oriental Trading Company has bulk fans, but i am sure some other companies would too.

My other suggestion is to buy a room divider and use it as the backdrop. it may be more expensive than you wanted to spend, but it is something you could use in your home.

 That's exactly what I thought Nichole!  Who needs a more breath taking backdrop than that beautiful natural scenery?

 Thanks a lot for great ideas , girls!

I don't think that mountains can be visible from there. 

I would love t have mountains visible, or some big tree that i could use as backdrop..

Well, room divider is a good idea, but idk what to do with it after the wedding, because I will fly back to my country. 

What if i just put 2 huge balloons on the sides? I know it will look kinda empty.. 

Look at the place again:

 Can I just clarify....you are going to use the fire pit area for the ceremony or you're walking through the arch and across the fire pit to get to your ceremony?

 I haven't been there in real yet, so i am not sure what's behind the fire pit area. I think of stopping somewhere before the pit, because otherwise the guests will be too far from us. 

If you think that some other area would be better for the ceremony, please tell me.

 That's why I was asking. It looks like there is a pretty archway behind the area that would look lovely with some simple flowers attached.

What do you other PWers think??

 Tanks again, everyone!

@Canooknic, You got my problem perfectly!

I also thought about that archway. I even have some very cute flowers that might be used to decorate it. But isn't it too far? Also, the hole will be on our way. WHat do you think?

 Could you start the seating at the edge of the pit area and stand on the archway side? I don't think that would be too far...or have the seating around the front of the area so it's rounded rows not straight (does that make sense?)

Its so hard when you haven't actually been there!! Is there so done that can go there for you and check things out?

Can the pit area be cleared of logs & stones and a piece of wood/flooring be placed over the hole (just a thought!)

sorry, I'm probably not helping at all right now am I?!?!?

 i magnified my screen and based on the first photo, the fire pit is right in front of an archway.  the fire pit is to the left of a big lawn area and there are stepping stones just in front of the fire pit. the elevated deck area with the grill is to the right of the fire pit. on the opposite side of the grass area as the elevated deck is a garden area.  it is in front of a white building.  based on what i can see from the pic, it looks like it would be a great backdrop.  you wouldnt really need anything else behind you.

 yeah...that white building with the wooden structure in front, it has a nice little garden  in front of it and there is plenty of room for your guests to sit on the grassy area in front of the garden.

How about this one, but flower poms attached to the DIY backdrop stand instead of fresh flowers? Flower poms that you've premade already and just fully open it up when you're already at the venue.
