Wedding Inspiration: Over The Top Altars

Wedding altars are serious business. Since that altar is one of the most important details of your wedding day, we put a lot of thought and effort into making them beautiful, show-stopping eye candy. After all, you're pledging your life to someone in front of it and the whole thing will be highly photographed, so it's got to look gorgeous! We adore dreamy, airy altars, but nothing makes us happier than a couple who asks for a completely over-the-top, highly detailed, fabulous altar! Here are some altars that are a little bit crazy and totally awesome!
