Hanging wedding decor is really having a moment, and it doesn't get much more classic than an ornate chandelier. While you might be used to seeing chandeliers in traditional ballrooms they can instantly add elegant style to a variety of spaces. You don't even have to limit yourself to the indoors or the chandeliers built into your space (but if you are planning on hanging any decorations consult your venue manager first!). Chandeliers can give even the most raw of spaces, like an all-white loft, warehouse or barn, an upscale vibe. Today, you can rent unique chandeliers or work with your florist or event designer to create something custom including flowers, textiles or even antlers. See some of our favorite ways to use chandeliers in your wedding, below!
