Hanging and suspended wedding decorations are all the rage these days and for good reason — what's more magical than dining and dancing beneath a beautiful botanical canopy? Here are six of our favorite ways to incorporate a suspended installation into your reception using lush garlands and branches of greenery.

Olive Branches Over the Dance Floor (above): How incredible is this olive branch-adorned chandelier hanging over the dance floor (also, those candles?!).

Greenery Above Head Table: The lush, deep-green greens hanging above the main table really pop against this venue's modern, all-white decor.

Greenery Grid: For an elegant, refined look, hang garlands of greenery above dinner tables in a crisp lattice- or grid-style format.

Loosely Draped Greenery: However, if your style is more casual and boho, then we love this creative look incorporating branches of greenery draped over a rustic wood structure.
