Statement-making wedding décor always catches our attention, but we get particularly excited when we find unexpected ways to use flowers. Our latest blossoming obsession? Floral and greenery chandeliers! Whether they’re used throughout your ceremony or reception space or as an accent over a specific part of your venue, a fresh chandelier can transform any space.
The key to making these stylish chandeliers work best for you is to find a look that complements the rest of your venue. For couples hosting a classic wedding, we love the look of pink roses, peonies, and white hydrangea tucked into lush greenery. If you’ve planned a more glamorous bash, heavy greenery draped around a faux-candle chandelier looks formal and ethereal. If you want to bring the outdoors in à la Kate Middleton, these natural décor elements will make your space feel organic but still special.
You can also think of what you want your floral chandelier to accomplish. For example, if it’s balancing an ultra-modern space with a romantic detail, consider soft roses and greenery with dreamy candlelight in a loft space. Trying to define a certain space, like your dance floor or sweetheart table? Consider bolder, bigger flowers for a look that really pops.
