Wedding Flower Ideas That Will Make You Fall In Love All Over Again
You can’t think about your ceremony or reception décor without considering which flowers you will have. Your wedding flowers can have a huge impact on the look of your wedding, so they need to fit your wedding style. They will also be one of the most photographed details of your wedding. But where do you start? Here are some of our favorite wedding flower ideas to get you started.
1. Floral Backdrops

How can a floral backdrop not wow you? Flower-covered walls and floral backdrops are the next big thing in wedding flower ideas. They are perfect ceremony and reception décor as they are great for the ceremony, taking photos or a backdrop for your cake. Your wedding will truly come to life!
These lush florals also make for a grand entrance — a lush entryway for the bridal party. The clean and crisp all-white reception is timeless. Using height, lighting and texture in your wedding centerpieces to create depth makes your flowers stand out — even against a monochromatic background.
2. Suspended Centerpieces

Suspended centerpieces are an unexpected take on the wedding flower idea. Having a planter filled with lush blooms or hanging flowers above the table, with the stems hanging upside down makes for a bold statement centerpiece. Consider filling the tables with monochromatic pillar candles and centerpieces that tie in with the suspended ones to draw guests’ eyes upward.
3. Flower Girl Dress Made With Real Roses

A new trend for wedding flower ideas is having florals adorning everything from the wedding dress, to accents, to the bridal party. Brides, especially unconventional ones, are opting to have flowers, but not bouquets. Flowers are therefore adorning attire and accessories in creative ways. This flower girl dress is adorned with fresh roses and hydrangeas.
Substitute the classic crystal chandelier for hanging flowers that resemble the look and feel of a light fixture. Floral chandeliers for ceremonies are often seen hanging from an arch or Chuppah, but a hanging arrangement of flowers at the reception that ties in with the centerpieces is one of the trending wedding reception flower ideas, and it makes for a bold statement piece.
5. Flower Petal Lined Aisles

Bushes of calla lilies (or your favorite flower!) are a gorgeous and fresh way to line the length of the aisle, and to accentuate the natural beauty of your church venue. Adding understated flower arrangements at the side of the pews creates a defined and ultra-romantic pathway to the altar.
Another one of the wedding flower arrangements ideas is to sprinkle rose petals along your ceremony aisle to create a lush and pretty floral aisle runner.
6. Floral Wedding Centerpieces

Floral wedding centerpieces is one of those wedding flower centerpieces ideas that will stand the test of time. Low and lush arrangements encourage conversation amongst your wedding guests. Hydrangeas, peonies, roses and other big-headed blooms surrounded by white frosted votive candles packs a nice punch. Pairing moss with warm creams and clear whites gives this modern centerpiece a warm feel.
7. Fresh Flower Wedding Cakes

Fresh flowers and petals can turn a simple cake into something stunning. This square four-tier wedding cake is decorated with purple orchids, white oriental lillies and pink tiger lillies that cascade over this white fondant cake. Just remember to let your florist know so they use flowers that haven’t been sprayed with pesticides! Blooms should also be removed before serving.
8. Floral Chair Garlands

Chair décor is one of the most neglected details. But with the proper adornment, a standard folding chair can be transformed into a gorgeous part of your wedding vision. Florals are an obvious way to let your own chairs or your bridal party’s and a few VIP guests’ chairs at the reception stand out.
Opt for leafy garlands (we love this romantic succulent and orchid chair garland) or add in a few extra blooms for extra-special guests.
9. Wedding Pomander Balls

Pomanders (also known as kissing balls) are a beautiful way to spice up your wedding decorations. They can be used to dress up the wedding aisle, decorate an outdoor arch, as centerpieces or as an alternative to flower girl baskets. They can also be hung from trees at an outdoor affair, or from ceiling beams in a banquet hall for a colorful touch to your décor. A popular choice is hanging them from the end chairs or from plant hangers placed on the sides of the aisle of an outdoor wedding.
10. Floral Table Runners

If you’re looking to make a major statement on long feasting tables, drape your tables with a table runner made of lush and beautiful blooms. These romantic wedding floral arrangements create an ethereal atmosphere and make for a dreamy reception space. They’re low enough so you can actually see the person across from you and don’t get in the way of guest conversation. We also love how they span the entire length of the table and that sometimes they cascade to the floor.
For maximum impact, choose one flower type and a monochromatic color scheme. Here, these fluffy white hydrangeas are our idea of pure bliss! Pink flowers and greenery complete the beautiful floral display. The candles are the perfect finishing touch.
11. Hanging Glass Globes

As far as wedding accents go, the glass globes are truly versatile! Hang glass globes filled with twinkling votives and plants to decorate your outdoor ceremony space if you’re going for a rustic woodland style. For a glam look, add dimension to a ceremony arch by hanging a group of glass globes filled with your wedding flowers or dangle the candle holders from tall centerpieces on your reception tables.
For a cheery-yet-modern look, fill delicate glass globes with bright flowers. You can also draw attention to the cake table by accenting it with this creative hanging centerpiece.
12. Flower-Accented Napkins

Welcome every guest to their place setting at the table by dressing up each napkin with its own floral treatment. Use a neutral napkin and charger, and then pick a bright flower with a large head (love this purple tulip!) for the ultimate pop. If you decide to go with a single bloom, make sure that you pick a flower with a bit of staying power, like a dahlia, orchid, tulip, or gerbera daisy.
Another great idea is to accent a favor or place card with a single flower, put it in a tiny bud vase, and place it in front of each charger. Either way, it adds another layer of style to your table.
