Hanging floral installations can really define a space. Ensure your hanging installation has plenty of foliage and is given a bit of life with some bright wildflowers. It will add so much flavour to your venue, without actually taking up too much physical space, giving you the opportunity to focus on the more subtle floristry and styling on the tables.

Reasonably easy to pull together, and depending on the materials and flowers you use, it doesn't have to break the budget. It is an effortlessly beautiful alternative to a wedding arch, so if you're looking for fun way to make your wedding a little different, a floral tee-pee could be what you were after all along. We certainly expect to see a lot more of these in the next few wedding seasons.

Unexpected, but becoming more and more popular, are clear perspex plinths. They are great because they look modern, suit any colour palette, and don't draw any attention away from the flowers placed atop them. They are perfect for decoration during the ceremony or during the reception. Any space can be modernised with clear perspex which looks great with a carefully put together floral arrangement.

A very bold statement but, if done right, unforgettably stunning. It looks great in the wedding shots, and you will feel very special having a glamorous work of art hanging behind you while you tie the knot. We would love to see more and more flower walls this coming season. However, even though they are undoubtedly popular, they can be quite difficult to put together without dipping into your budget quite generously. Have a talk to your florist about budget friendly alternatives.
