If you’ve decided to not have table centerpieces, or if you have extra wall space, or if you just like big and bold decorations, consider these stunning ideas for statements made out of giant flowers. They’re sure to catch your guests’ attention and will stand out in everyone’s memories for years to come. Tree peonies, oriental poppies, water lilies, hibiscuses, English roses, camellia, and Egyptian lotus are a few flowers with extra large blooms that would make excellent decorations.
Flower curtain: especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding, setting up a flower curtain at the beginning of the ceremony aisle creates a stunning entrance for guests and the bridal party alike. You’ll add a layer of fun and intrigue as well, as guests get to watch people emerge through the curtain.
Flower arch: if a flower curtain isn’t for you, consider an archway instead! Forever a romantic symbol, an arch at the beginning of the aisle is a beautiful start to the ceremony. Traditionally, walking through an arch symbolizes leaving the past behind and starting anew — a perfect meaning for a wedding. You can also use an arch for a backdrop at the ceremony.

Shaped wall art: if you have a lot of bare wall space, one way to utilize that space is with wall art. You could hang a banner or pictures, or you could really stun your guests with an incredible floral display. Shape the flowers into a heart, a larger flower, your initials, or any shape you want for a gorgeous, unique look.
Floral waterfall: instead of a water fountain, have a flower waterfall! Some venues don’t allow water features, but you can still turn a simple fountain into a magnificent floral decoration.
Photo booth backdrop: you have a few options here. You could use a wall of the tall floor vases, a flower blanket, a flower curtain, or flowers pinned to canvas as your photo booth backdrop.
Table runner: keep your table decorations low without sacrificing any of the looks or style of a gorgeous centerpiece. Drape a floral runner along the table and set small candles on top of mirrors throughout the flowers.
Floral guest book: although this one doesn’t quite count as a giant flower, it’s definitely a statement piece. Rather than having guests sign the pages of a traditional guest book, have them sign flower petals! You can use either a blank guest book or a photo album, and you’ll need large petals as well as felt-tipped markers. After guests have written their name on a petal, they can press it between the blank pages or insert them into the photo slots so the petals can dry. Tree peonies, oriental poppies, water lilies, hibiscuses, English roses, camellia, and Egyptian lotus are a few flowers with extra large petals you could use.
Tall floor vases: simple, tall vases on the floor with even taller flowers inside them is such an elegant look. Position the vases around doorways, at the ends of aisles, or behind the head table to draw everyone’s attention. For a magical look, fill the vases with water and submerge the flowers, and set the vases in front of lights and mirrors.
Hanging orbs: if you really want to keep your tables clear, or if you’re looking for extra decoration space at the ceremony, consider hanging your centerpieces. These simple wreaths, flower orbs, and flower chandeliers are a beautiful decor option that will fit any wedding style.
Flower and balloon display: tie balloons to a thin rope and then weave flowers through them. You can hang this from the ceiling or on the wall. It makes a gorgeous backdrop for the head table, too!
