Sometimes, all it takes is a few (hundred thousand) white flower petals to bring the wow factor to a ceremony aisle. If your venue already has an altar structure in place, personalize it with flowing white fabric and a trio of floral accents at the end of the petal trail.
If enchanted garden wedding style is more your speed, transform your ceremony venue into a magical space with garlands draped across the ceiling and potted flowers along the aisle.
Floral wreath backdrop
Hey, trendsetting couples: A giant floral wreath is one of our must-have wedding flower ideas if you're looking to make a statement. We can't think of a more eye-catching — or 'gram worthy — backdrop for your nuptials. After the ceremony, you can repurpose the wreath at your reception (for example, behind your head table).
If you're looking for something understated yet still totally breathtaking, surround your altar with low flower arrangements and greenery. This works especially well if you're exchanging your I do's on an elevated surface, like stairs or a platform.
Ombré aisle runner
A floral ombré aisle runner is ultra-romantic, especially if you use bright red rose petals. With the tall hedges, trailing amaranthus and greenery garlands, this dramatic setup reminds us a little bit of the Queen of Hearts garden in Alice In Wonderland, and we're not mad about it.
Raise your hand if you're still not over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding.

Pup of honor
A floral collar is the perfect accessory for a pet or furry friend who's making their big debut on your wedding day.
The celebratory petal toss is one of the most timeless wedding flower ideas around. Take your first steps as newlyweds while your loved ones shower you in a flurry of colorful petals!
