Floral arrangements for your wedding encompass a lot more than your bouquets and centerpieces. You’ll also need stems for the altar, cocktail table clusters, boutonnieres and even the escort card display. If you want to incorporate big blooms on your wedding day, wow your guests with hanging floral arrangements. Hang bold flowers from assorted vintage bottles over your reception tables for a rustic vision, or suspend wisteria stems from the ceiling for garden-fresh glamour.
