Fresh Flower Runners

From floral arches[1] to towering flower walls[2] (à la Kim and Kanye[3]), couples are using wedding flowers[4] in unexpected and over-the-top ways. Case in point: The flower runners of fresh blooms and greenery that have been popping up all over Pinterest and Instagram[5].

Flowers runners are an ongoing trend we've been seeing everywhere over the past few years—in real weddings[6], at bridal showers, and more. These blooming accent pieces completely transform a classic tablescape into something fresh, and the trend even totes a few major advantages. For starters, you don't have to worry about sourcing vessels in various shapes and size and creating several different centerpieces for each table. No, embracing the garland means you (if you're DIY-ing) and your florist[7] can focus on one, central centerpiece. To make the most of your flower fund[8], you can even decorate just your sweetheart table or dessert display with a floral runner to get the look for less.

And even better: This gorgeous garland trend can be translated for any bride, whatever your wedding style is. Visualize a long garland of palm fronds and tropical flowers for a destination wedding; all greenery for a candlelit barn affair; or a line of citrus fruits for an outdoor summer soirée.

You'll find all of those flower runners right here—and more! From cascading peonies to garlands of greenery, the 31 flower runners below are bound to inspire you, no matter your wedding style.
