2020 wedding trends – hanging wedding flowers
Hanging, or suspended, floral installations have been appearing over recent years but 2020 is going to be their breakthrough year. Instead of neat little table centres and foliage garlands, we’re going to see flowers taking centre stage in the most spectacular ways.

So, why have hanging florals become so popular? It’s clear to see that they’re absolutely stunning and daringly different so for couples looking to do things differently, suspended floral décor is the way to go. These unusual designs are a long way away from the traditional wedding arrangements that sit on plinths or pedestals. For creative couples looking to push the boundaries and really wow their guests, hanging flowers have it all.

As gorgeous as hanging wedding flowers are, they’re also really practical. Suspended installations don’t take up room on your tables, they don’t get in the way of conversation and they’re well out of the way and less likely to be knocked or damaged during the day. Hanging flowers can help create a more intimate atmosphere in rooms with super high ceilings and they absolutely work with weddings of all styles and themes.

- Create a hanging arrangement over your ceremony table and use flowers that mirror your bouquet and buttonholes.
- Circular installations over circular tables look fantastic and these can be created around plastic hula hoops to keep the weight down.
- Use ladders or wooden boards as the basis for long arrangements and these look fantastic over long tables.
- Include lights or hanging tea light holders in your decorations to bring soft light to your wedding tables.
- For a simple yet impactful design, individual blooms hung over your room or focussed in just one part of it look amazing.
- Floral balls are another great hanging design. You could suspend a couple of these above your aisle or ceremony space and then move them to flank your top table.
- Keep things simple with hanging foliage garlands and lanterns.
- For a more rustic look, hang your flowers are various heights to give them a ‘just grown’ look.
- If you’re on a budget, opt for one statement hanging decoration and then go for simple flowers or candles on your tables.
- To cut down on the numbers of flowers that you need, use props such as geometric metal pieces or wooden hoops and simply add a few flowers to each.
