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 floral 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.

And it's not just the traditional flower wall we love! We've seen so many different takes on flower installations and "walls" that have left us speechless. Click through to see 20 of the most stunning wedding flower walls and installations we've seen at real weddings.

Keep things monochrome with white flowers and greenery (plus palm trees if you're getting married somewhere tropical!) and white runners and chairs for a clean and modern look.

You don't need to fill up an entire wall with flowers to make a stunning statement! This beautiful wall feels airy—a gorgeous modern take on the traditional flower wall.

Create oasis-like corners of your cocktail or reception lounge areas by having your florist encircle the sides of chairs, winding up and along the closest wall.

Another way to get that lush flower wall effect in a new way? Have your floral designer create a wild garden feel with aisle-lining blooms that connect to an equally organic feeling arch. The whole thing should feel like it just occurred naturally, even if you're indoors.

How cool is this? Unlike any flower wall we've seen, we love the greenery as the base and the hanging flowers in all shades of tonal colors!

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 they see upon arrival!

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

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 ombre effect is stunning in photos (and in person!).

In case you couldn't tell, we're all about the organically creeping greenery. This beautiful installation by Fox Fodder Farm is everything we want from an indoor venue that feels like the best parts of the outdoors were magically placed inside.

Similar to the welcome sign idea, this pretty wedding program sign adds some flair while still being cost-effective by only using greenery.

Want something dramatic for your ceremony that mimics the effects of a flower wall but isn't one? Try a circular ceremony structure instead of a traditional arch.

Instead of creating a floral installation for your ceremony, bring in trees to your indoor venue to create the feel of being in the great outdoors.
