From floral arches to towering flower walls, wedding flowers are increasingly used in unexpected and over-the-top ways. Case in point: the flower runners of fresh blooms and greenery that have been popping up all over Pinterest and Instagram.

Flower runners are a trend we've been seeing everywhere the past few years—in real weddings, at bridal showers, and more. These blooming accent pieces completely transform a classic tablescape into something fresh, and the trend even totes a few major advantages. For starters, you don't have to worry about sourcing vessels in various shapes and sizes and creating several different centerpieces for each table. No, embracing the garland means you (if you're DIY-ing) and your florist can focus on one central centerpiece.

To make the most of your flower fund, decorate just your sweetheart table or dessert display with a floral runner to get the look for less.

You'll find all of those flower runners and more right here. From cascading peonies to garlands of greenery, the 29 floral runners below are bound to inspire you, no matter your wedding style.

Bright blooms pop against this deeply saturated greenery, mimicking the illustrations on the menu cards. We love how the stems were left long for an overgrown look, rather than the usual intricate positioning of centerpiece arrangements.
