In a great venue, your reception décor can take on a life of its own, transforming the space from ceiling to floor with a design that embodies your love. Well-rounded reception designs really bring the wow factor by creating an atmosphere that guests can take in from every angle. While we’ve shared plenty of table décor and even signage inspiration lately, we’re kicking it up a notch with these hanging reception décor ideas to help you go beyond the bunting. Your guests are sure to be starstruck when they walk in and see these dangling beauties!
Reclaimed Wood with Suspended Florals
If DIY projects are your favorite weekend pastime, this suspended statement is for you! Stringing flowers or foliage through found lattices, wooden palettes, or even crates is a great way to create visual interest above your party while also making the ceiling look higher than it is!
Origami and Geometric Paper Shapes
Add a burst of color and a modern touch to your reception with folded or cut paper shapes hanging from the ceiling. There’s nothing more one-of-a-kind than something you make yourself, and this DIY décor shows off your personal style unlike any other. For beginner crafters, a mobile of cut paper is easy to achieve. For more advanced makers, try 3D geometric shapes!
Floral Chandeliers and Halos of Greenery
If your venue has a lot of room to fill, both in depth and height, floral chandeliers and halos of greenery are a great way to make use of your space! The key to this design element is determining the best distance between structures: do you prefer one large piece over each table or several smaller clusters throughout the room?
Glass Globes with Candles or Air Plants
If suspended flowers and dangling colors would be overwhelming for your venue aesthetic, glass globes are the sophisticated answer to your hanging needs. Electric candles sparkle against the glass for an elegant look, while air plants are a modern choice with a natural touch.
Epic Floral Installations
When it comes to these floral installations, you’ve got to go big or go home! Team up with your wedding planner and florist to design a major statement piece your guests won’t soon forget. Due to their size, placement is key for these epic installations. Utilize this hanging reception decor idea to draw attention to your sweetheart table, the dance floor, or a romantic lounge area to get your guests using the flow of the room.
