We're seeing more and more hanging basket chandeliers and pendants pop up at weddings these days, especially suspended over the reception tables. And truth be told? We're totally in love with the trend. From organic, woven styles to industrial wire versions, a basket chandelier is a great way to add an unexpected touch to your overall reception look.
