There is nothing more magical than entering an event space and seeing a glittering chandelier floating in the air. These luxurious fixtures can be elevated further by adding floral embellishment. Suspended floral designs add visual interest to a space and they are truly breathtaking! The image above is from one of our favorite reception designs (you can see more in our event gallery here). The floral chandeliers were truly show-stopping and left guests awe-struck by their beauty. The following images contain some of our favorite suspended floral applications. We assure your obsession will be in full bloom after taking a peek!

Floral chandeliers can be used to define a space. For instance, you might anchor one above your ceremony altar where you exchange “I Do’s” with your groom or perhaps you place a breathtaking chandelier directly above your dance floor where you share your first dance! A chandelier dressed in stunning blooms will serve as the perfect focal point!

By taking a gorgeous wrought iron or crystal chandelier and adorning it with greenery or floral varieties, you have the ability to transform a space and create the environment you envision for your celebration. For a classic look you might embellish your fixture with feminine blooms like peonies and hydrangeas, whereas cascading vines and natural elements will create a more rustic tone.

At this particular lakeside reception (the full gallery can be viewed here!), three oversized chandeliers were adorned with seasonal birch branches, moss, and smilax vine. It set the tone for this wedding that was centered upon effortless, natural beauty.  Whichever style you envision for your special day, you might consider consulting with your floral designer about incorporating some of these stunning suspended floral fixtures. They are sure to be a hit and keep your guests talking and lovingly reminiscing for years to come!
