While your dress obviously looks the most fabulous on you, we recommend that your photographer snap a picture of your gown against a backdrop that goes hand-in-hand with your wedding theme! It's a must-have photo momento you'll appreciate for years to come. Stuck on ideas for how to construct it? Eight of our favorites follow below.
