Are you indecisive about flower trend ideas? This article will guide to pick the best flower trends that will embellish your wedding venue completely. Read on for our favorite floral details you haven’t already seen at every other wedding.

Floral Fountain

Cascading greenery and lush hydrangea imitate a romantic overflowing fountain, but with much more whimsy. Create a whole new level of romance by adding floating candles and lily pads to the pool and your wedding venue is ready.

Floating Florals

You must have seen floral monograms before, but rarely floating on a bed of moss in a luxurious water landscape, surrounded by islands of candles and flower arrangements. If your venue has a pool or pond, get creative with the décor! It's an opportunity to craft a jaw-dropping aesthetic.

Flower Backdrop

A floor-to-ceiling arrangement of greenery and color-coordinated blooms set the scene for some pretty amazing ceremony photos. You would love the urban contrast between the exposed industrial-looking walls, the garden-chic blooms and crystal chandeliers.

Garland-Draped Ceiling

If your vision of a romantic outdoor tent is stifled by the tent's exposed support beams—cover them up! For a lush, full-looking garland, make sure to consider greenery like ivy, maidenhair fern or boxwood and moreover you can add even more intrigue by hanging amaranthus flower spray, clear glass terrariums and bundles of bare branches to your wedding venue.

King Protea and Air Plants

For a never-before-seen bouquet arrangement, this one takes the cake. King protea is the main attraction here, supplemented by an impressive air plant and full cluster of seeded eucalyptus.

Topiary-lined Aisle 

A petal-lined aisle is one thing—a topiary-lined aisle with trees that look like they're straight out of Wonderland is something entirely different. If you're going for an all-white or neutral color scheme, that means you can play around more with the color of your florals. Don't be afraid to mix and match!

Unlikely Pairings

The superfood of superfoods is also a standout choice for a unique bouquet. It outshines many other greens in the full foliage category, and the deep purple hue of its center leaves act as its own accent color, which can be pulled into the bouquet with similarly-colored blooms.

Hanging Pomanders

Varying sizes and colors of pomanders dress up a bare tree for an outdoor ceremony. Just be careful to use extra supports when you hang them—you don't want one falling down in the middle of “I do."

Staircase Cake Display

If your venue has a grand staircase, use it! Start off your event with a cocktail hour in the foyer and transform the railings into a floral masterpiece. Vines of greenery, bushels of roses, scattered petals, candles and overhead bistro lighting make for a ridiculously impressive entrance (and not to mention an amazing wedding cake display!)

Woodland Runner

With a stretch of moss and some wild-looking floral arrangements, you can create a striking woodland-esque tabletop. Arrange dark jewel-toned blooms in footed urns, and to complete the look, add in unique fillers like fiddlehead ferns and burgundy hypericum berries.

Lampshade Centerpieces

Put a twist on your succulent centerpiece and have your florist top off a tall column vase with a lampshade—made of moss! If you don't want to sacrifice floral centerpieces, you could also fill the vase with blooms or scatter small bud vases with single stems for a floral touch that won't look too eclectic.

Floral Chandeliers

Arranging some upside down stems can transform your light fixtures into striking chandeliers. Most flower-adorned chandeliers are equipped with wreaths for extra structure (and labor costs), but this elegantly simple display of white and yellow blossoms are just as impressive.

Inverted Gardens

Want an awe-inspiring floral instillation, but between table space and the dance floor, there's nowhere to put it? Turn it upside down and suspend it from the ceiling. You won't have to sacrifice any floor or tabletop space, and you can play with the location; try it over the dance floor, sweetheart table, or bar area.

Hanging Potted Plants

If your venue has a dividing wall of lattice, use it to your advantage. (You can add suspended details without any extra installation fees!) Potted orchids contribute some height to the structure, while exotic leafy plants, like crotons, have deep green leaves and red veins that add intense color. Bonus: Unlike cut florals in your centerpieces (that can only be preserved for a limited amount of time), these can be used as home décor long after the wedding.

Ombre Table Runner

With a chic ombre floral runner, you can have a whole slew of colors without the arrangement looking chaotic. Accessorize the tabletop with a neutral tablecloth so there's not too much going on; a matte sequin material or beige linens both have fun textures, but aren't distracting.

Reverse Flower Crown

Switch up the traditional flower crown design and embellish the back of the headpiece rather than the front or sides. It's a little surprise element that will guests will “ooh" and “ahh" over as you walk down the aisle.

Indoor Trees

You would surely love the idea of bringing the outdoors in—with more than just flowers. Tall green trees make a ballroom feel like an intimate garden party, and you can use the branches to hang a few more pieces of décor, like miniature crystal chandeliers or string lights.

Tropical Centerpieces

Fiddlehead ferns, tropical orchids and red pincushion proteas come together for an island-inspired arrangement, perfect for a destination wedding or waterside celebration.
