Whether you are at a North Indian wedding, a Christian wedding, an Orthodox wedding, a South Indian wedding, or a Muslim wedding, there is one element that binds them all together (no, we are not talking about the bride and groom). It’s the floral arrangements. No wedding in the world is complete without some flowers to add to the celebration in some way. Whether it be a sign of fertility or their aesthetic value, a floral wreathe or a bouquet of flowers are somehow always present.
Since they are so crucial to a wedding, don’t overlook the floral arrangements that will adorn your special day. Take a look at some of the most unique and beautiful floral arrangements that will have the guests gushing and you blushing.

Replace the traditional crystal chandelier for a hanging arrangement of flowers that mimics the look and feel of a light fixture. Try hanging long strings of flowers, like these pink hyacinths, and cover the top in greenery and berries for a garden-fresh feel.

Want an oomph-factor in your wedding? Opt for an upside down floral installation for the ultimate ‘wow’ element. Not only will it look amazing, it will also save plenty of space on the dance floor. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!

If one upside-down installation is not grand enough, why not cover the entire ceiling in flowers? The result will be beautiful, while still looking natural and unassuming.
7. Hanging Potted Plants

Going for a rustic, cute wedding look? Suspend some good ol’ potted plants from a wall and place old bicycle wheels or other thrifted items nearby to create a fun, quaint look. Plus, you can use these potted plants as home décor after the wedding!
8. Ombre Table Runner

Are you the chic bride? Or maybe you’re just indecisive about colors. Regardless, you can’t go wrong with an ombre floral runner. By keeping the gradient in similar tones and using a plain tablecloth, you’ll have a runner that is eye-catching without being ostentatious.

What screams louder than your initials? Getting a floral monogram is not only a way to make the décor more personal, it can also welcome guests to the ceremony or be hung from a wall or tree to make a statement.

Combine various elements by hanging these flower-filled glass globes from the ceiling, a wall or a few trees. Keep it minimalistic with white flowers, or opt for bright flowers like these for a more cheerful look.
