When it comes to planning the details and specifics of your wedding day, you’ve got your eyes glued to the top wedding Pinterest accounts to help you figure out favors, hair + makeup, plus are still looking for how to plan every wedding event leading up to your wedding. But don’t forget that the sky is the limit when it comes to your wedding decor. Forget the mason jars and burlap — there’s a new trend that will raise your spirits: hanging centerpieces. Take your tablescape decor to a whole other level — literally — whether it’s with wildflowers dripping from the ceiling, geometric felt pieces or floating decor. Scroll down to find 10 soaring centerpieces that will bring a bit of magic to your wedding day.


1. Hope Floats: Gone are the days where the centerpiece needs to actually sit at the table — that is so 2015. Ask your florist to create a low-lying floral arrangement on a suspended platform. Guests will be happy to sit underneath these beautiful blooms since their view won’t be obstructed. (Photo via Fiona Clair Photography / BLovedWeddings)


2. Bright Is Beautiful: Macrame is magical, with its vintage aura and nod to the past. It conveys a laid-back vibe and is super on trend. Macrame is an easy DIY, but if there isn’t time, you can head to your local hardware store for a hanging garden planter. (Photo via Rebekah J Murray Photography)


3. Feels for Felt: To create this look, buy felt by the bolt at your local craft store, then cut into square pieces and string them with fishing line. Ombre continues to be a hot 2016 wedding trend, if rainbow isn’t your style — just pick one color and use its monochromatic hues to get this look. (Photo via Lizelle Lotter Photography)

4. Less Is More: Monochromatic blooms can magically transform your ceremony backdrop. One by one, string flowers along strands of twine, garland-style, then tie it to a nearby tree. Use the backdrop for your ceremony, sweetheart table or a Mother Nature-approved photobooth. To achieve the same amount of feels and add a little fancy, a floral chandelier is a fave DIY.

5. V Is for Van Gogh: For a truly starry night, string paper star lanterns in an open air tent. The neutral color palette will feel soft + sophisticated while still creating a cosmically cool reception environment. DIYers rejoice, and learn how to make your own three-dimensional lanterns for your wedding day. (Photo via Samuel Lippke Studios / Inside Weddings)

6. Take Center Ceiling: Make the center of your reception pop with a ceiling of carnations. Over 2,000 carnations created this luxe installation, and because carnations are the longest lasting flowers (and are *super* budget friendly), it’s a reasonable way to achieve this look.

7. First Place Ribbon: Because ribbons add color, texture and pizzazz, you can drape them over your reception ceiling for technicolor awesomeness. These 15 Ribbon Wedding Backdrops will show you how to keep your look cohesive by adding fabric to your altar too. (Photo via Our Labor of Love Photography / Green Wedding Shoes)

8. Foliage Is the New Flower: Get your inner Tarzan on and install a greenery roof at your reception. The textures are endless, and great greens are always in season, so save yourself the stress and opt for foliage over flowers. Eucalyptus greens are a wonderful choice, and they will add a sweet aroma to your nuptials! (Photo via Tory Williams Photography / Style Me Pretty)

9. AdORBs: Glass orbs with tealights and blooms are a beautiful (yet fairly standard) decor trend in the wedding decor industry. Try a different kind of orb made from steel or wood (like this hanging mobile) to add some raw-ness to your day. (Photo via Patrick Moyer Weddings / Elizabeth Anne Designs)
