20 Stunning Wedding Flower Wall Ideas

Ceremony Floral Arch Garland

M & J Photography

Ever since Kim and Kanye tied the knot in front of a wall of white peonies, roses, and gardenias, flower walls have been en vogue. And it's no wonder—a luxurious wall installation made entirely of flowers is a spectacular way to create a focal point at your wedding. And a flower wall can work anywhere: at the ceremony entrance, as a gorgeous backdrop for your vow exchange, as an escort-card display, at the reception behind a delicious spread of desserts, or any other place you'd like to draw attention to.

Flower walls are also a great way to bring the outside indoors, especially if you and your fiancé love Mother Nature but are hosting an indoor celebration.

A flower wall can also serve double-duty if the ceremony and reception are being held at the same venue. First, have your florist create a towering flower wall to serve as the backdrop for your ceremony; then, during cocktail hour, flip the space and position your sweetheart table in the same spot. Or, have the flower wall function as a photo booth backdrop or selfie station at the reception. Either way, you're pretty much guaranteed spectacular wedding photos all night long.

Scroll through to see 20 of the most stunning wedding flower walls and installations we've seen at real weddings.

Ceremony Backdrop Made From White Flowers and Greenery

Add visual interest to your venue with white flowers and greenery (plus palm trees if you're getting married somewhere tropical). We love how this couple incorporated white runners and cushioned bamboo chairs for a clean, yet modern look. Bonus: After the ceremony, guests will be able to use the floral backdrop for fun photos.

Ivy Vines Intertwined With Flowers

You don't need to fill up an entire wall with flowers to make an elegant statement. This beautiful wall consisting of ivy garlands, floral accents, and fairy lights feels airy—a gorgeous modern take on the traditional flower wall.

White Floral Installation for Reception Lounge

Create oasis-like corners at your cocktail or reception lounge areas by having your florist encircle the sides of chairs with flowers winding up and along the closest wall. Not only will it be totally unexpected, but it'll give you a picturesque spot for wedding snapshots.

Looking to transform your ceremony space and wow guests at the same time? Work with your floral designer to create a secret garden-inspired setting for your vow exchange. Here, lush flower runners are connected to an arch to establish a focal point. The whole installation should feel like it just occurred organically, even if you're indoors.

Greenery Wall With Hanging Flowers

Just a reminder that there's no limit to your creativity. Unlike any flower wall we've seen, this installation consists of a greenery base and hanging flowers in all shades of tonal colors. Housed inside a clear tent with a chandelier, the floral arrangement managed to complement—not compete—with the theme of this wedding.

Floral Accented Welcome Sign

Want an installation but can't afford a full wall of flowers? We love this modern take. Have your florist color block flowers that wind up and around a welcome sign so this prettiness is the first thing your guests see upon arrival.

Flower-Covered Chuppah

Not satisfied with the abundant and wildly growing flowers at your venue? We get it. Add in a flower-filled ceremony structure for a multi-layered floral effect.

Ombré Flower Wall

If you're looking for something a little more on the traditional side, opt for a wall sans greenery and packed with buds. Plus, this ombré effect is stunning in photos (and in-person).

Ceremony Floral Arch Garland

Give wedding guests something to remember. Follow in Harry and Meghan's lead by adorning your venue entryway with an organic burst of white flowers (from white garden roses to baby's breath) and voluminous greenery. The installation looks like it sprung up from the ground.

All-White Flower Wall and Ceremony Backdrop

Amaryllis created this beautiful white flower wall that can be used as a ceremony backdrop and afterward as reception décor. If you're looking to enhance your space or lend a touch of elegance, this is the way to go.

Asymmetrical Greenery Arch

Whether for a winter wedding or holiday nuptials, we love the idea of incorporating a creeping greenery arch into your wedding décor. This enchanting installation by Fox Fodder Farm is successful in transporting guests to a magical woodsy wonderland—it feels as though the best parts of the outdoors were placed inside.

Greenery Covered Signage

Looking for a unique twist on the traditional flower wall? Find ways to combine elements of greenery into your venue. Similar to the welcome sign idea, this pretty wedding program signage adds some flair while still being cost-effective by only using greenery.

Floral Installation Behind the Head Table

Make your head table even more Insta-worthy by placing a flower wall directly behind it—your photographer will thank you. Work with your florist to select seasonal blooms that suit your wedding theme and palette.

Greenery-Covered Circle Installation

Want something dramatic for your ceremony that mimics the effects of a flower wall but isn't one? Try a circular ceremony structure (representative of eternity) instead of a traditional arch. Throw in a greenery-lined aisle and vintage chairs for a rustic-chic aesthetic.

Bring a Courtyard To Life With Trees and Floral Towers

Abby Jiu

Instead of creating a floral installation for your ceremony, bring in trees to create the feel of being in the great outdoors. While lucite chairs highlighted the modernity of the space, trees and floral towers helped to bring this couple's garden party theme to life.

Botanical Aisle Décor

Another take on the wild garden aisle décor and arch that we just can't get enough of. Take cues from this fairytale-esque setup by bringing in wildflowers of different textures and colors to create a blooming centerpiece for your vow exchange.

Transport Guests With a Tropical Ceremony Wall

Want something a little more tropical? Have your florist create a ceremony wall of leafy greens and have it double as a photo booth background. Mix in white blooms like hydrangeas and garden roses for a subtle accent.

How to create that cozy-hygge vibe for your lounge area? Try incorporating a natural-looking green and white floral wall as the centerpiece for added visual interest. It'll practically serve as an open invitation to guests to snap pictures during the cocktail hour or reception (just don't forget to put your wedding hashtag on display).

For a different take on a flower wall, Paper to Petals created this magnificent wall of jumbo paper roses. Swoon. If you're up for the challenge, you can DIY your own backdrop by sourcing paper flowers from your local crafts store or Etsy.
