Floral wall installations bring botanical beauty to your wedding, adding glorious backdrops, fabulous photo opportunities, and dazzling displays. Delicately draped foliage, cascading florals, or simplistic blooms can create an eye-catching design that can work with any theme and style. More brides are choosing to use minimal florals during their ceremony and reception, opting for a focal point that will pack a punch and create the wow factor.
FTD Flowers have shared with me 14 of their favourite floral wall creations that are guaranteed to inspire the stylish bride.
