When it comes to planning a wedding, there has always been an emphasis placed on beautifully crafted floral arrangements. Whether they are lining the aisle, bunched for the bride and bridesmaids or used as centrepieces, the perfect display of flora can add that extra special touch to your ceremony and reception.

For our brides wanting something completely unique for their wedding, we’ve got the most beautiful (and simple) tips and ideas for an unforgettable floral statement for your ceremony or reception!

While flowers are traditionally planted or displayed in vases at events, we absolutely love hanging and framework displays that can be utilized throughout every space of your special day!


You’ll need to evaluate your space to see how many hanging pieces or framework displays will work, where you want them to be placed and how big they will be. The best part about these beautiful displays is that they can be as small or as large as you’d like to perfectly accent your particular space.

Here are our top suggestions on stand out floral masterpieces:

The Floral Chuppah: We all love chuppahs made from timber and decorated with flowers – however if you’re looking for something a little different, a suspended floral chuppah is just the thing!

The Signing Desk: What could be a more perfect way to start your marriage than by signing the papers underneath a beautiful display of your favourite flowers?

A Photography Backdrop: Create an absolutely flawless background for your guests to be photographed against.

Hanging Ideas:

It’s also important to decide where you’re going to place your hanging displays and how are they going to be secured – no one wants a flower mishap on the day! Doors and gates are perfect options!

If you’re to be married underneath an old beautiful tree, the branches can make a perfect support, however if not, there are plenty of other ways to secure a floral display.

Suspended from the roof – this of course is only possible if your venue approves it! A warehouse or gallery space will generally be able to accommodate your wishes with suspended roof displays.

Framework – If hanging isn’t an option, you may want to consider a framework to support your floral display. A worn and weathered timber frame made from old boards can create a rustic look.


Choosing your flowers is the best part out of the whole process! With your florist, choose flowers that suit your colour scheme and don’t forget some greenery to fill out your design. White blooms are always a beautiful and classic choice for a wedding display.
