One of the best things about flowers is their versatility when it comes to arrangements. We are absolutely loving flower walls at the moment. Here are some of our favourite flower wall wedding ideas.
Flower walls are an easy way to add some colour to your wedding celebrations. Pick your favourite flowers in colours that match your theme. A colourful floral wall can be a great backdrop for pictures at your reception and something your guests can really enjoy.
Bridal Table Backdrop
One of the most stunning locations for your flower wall is right behind the bride and groom at the reception. What better way to make your arrangement stand out than to place it right where everyone is looking.
To add an extra dimension to your flower wall, try arranging flowers from a different angle. Hanging flowers are a chance to get more creative and experimental with your arrangements. The designs are often more delicate that a traditional flower wall. They are also a great way to incorporate the already exisiting features of a venue, such a beams and chandeliers.
Add Some Words
Including words on your flower wall can add a little bit of style and fun. Your wedding day is all about you so add "Mr & Mrs" or "Just Married" to your flower wall really embraces it. Using words as the centre piece of your wall allows you to decorate the flowers around them.
Make your wedding flower wall stand out by incorporating more than just flowers. Use a wooden palette or rustic lattice board and use the flowers to decorate around it. This gives the same effects as a floral wall, but less dramatic and over the top. It is also a more cost effective way to still include a flower wall in your celebrations.
Greenery has been a trend for a while now, being incorporated into bouquets and floral arrangements. Adding greenery to your flower wall can compliment the colours of your flowers and give a more organic and natural feel. This is particularly good for giving an outdoor feel to indoor wedding venues.
Less Is More
Some flower walls are blocks of floor to ceiling flowers and can be overwhelming. For a more stripped back and natural look, try using less flowers. By spreading the flowers out you can create a delicate wall effect that is refined and elegant.
An ombre colour scheme is a great twist on a traditional flower wall. Roses come in a variety of shades, making them as easy choice for an ombre wall. The roses allow for your wall to be as bold or pastel as you like. This design is all about the flowers, with minimal greenery.
If your ceremony and reception are at the same venue, a flower wall can be a great addition. Incorporate it into both parts of your wedding for maximum versatility. A flower wall can be a beautiful backdrop for your vows, and can double as a photo wall, or backdrop to the head table at your reception.
Tropical florals are a great way to incorporate some summer vibes into your wedding. Palm leaves and tropical flowers are a must for a summer flower wall. Adding a neon light sign or a bright prop can add an additional wow factor.
Play With Shapes
Just because you want a flower wall, doesn't mean that it has to be a rectangular block. Circular designs are also a great option for flower walls. Whether it is a solid circle shaped wall, or a wreath design, a different shaped flower wall adds a unique touch to your celebration.
Worried about allergies but still want to include a flower wall in your celebrations? Paper flowers are an effective alternative. They can be created to have to same delicacy as real flowers and often more cost effective as well.
Incorporate A Prop
To make your flower wall more of a feature, include a prop such as a chair or stairs. This can make your arrangement feel like a work of art more than a wall. It also offers the opportunity to take photos in different ways and experiment with seated and standing positions.
Geometric props and patterns are a fun way to incorporate different shapes and textures to your flower wall. This works well if you have a geometric theme and have already included other geometric items throughout your decorations.
Make Your Own Wall
If a full flower wall won't suit your venue, there are plenty of alternatives. One of our favourites is hanging flowers in a pattern to create a makeshift wall. This allows you creativity when it comes to shape. Choose to keep your flowers in a straight line, or arrange them circularly to take photos from in the middle.
