Floating wedding flowers add a magical element to any wedding. The best part? Many of these centerpieces are super easy DIY projects.

Water-Filled Candle Centerpieces


These centerpieces are simple yet elegant — and are perfect for the bride who wants to save money by doing a couple of DIY projects! Simply fill a couple of different sized vases with flowers and water and rest a flat-bottomed candle on top.

Fairy Tale Inspiration


Sticking with the theme of adding flowers to tall pillar vases, you could try something like this. Putting one red rose with its stem in a tall, water-filled vase will give you a unique centerpiece. It’s reminiscent of the rose from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which inspires its own kind of magic.

Table Runner


If you have long tables at your wedding reception, adding wedding flowers in shallow glasses or vases is a lovely idea. Choose a flower that will lay flat (think ranunculus or a daisy rather than a peony or rose) for the best results.

Rustic Details


For an outdoor wedding or a garden party, why not try something a bit rustic to complement your theme? Place flower heads in a bucket filled with water and use them as aisle decor.

Add a Mirror


If your wedding flowers are floating in water, add a mirror underneath the vase for reflection. This looks especially pretty if you have floating candles, too.

Nice Stems


Floating flowers don’t have to be stemless! Check out this centerpiece which has blush roses “planted” into the bottom of the bowl.

Reach for New Heights


Can you say s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g? There is something magical about floating floral arrangements that are tall. These centerpieces are definitely attention grabbing!

Make it Glow


Simply adding a glow cube to your floating wedding flowers can make a huge difference! These little cubes are plastic and battery-operated. Turn them on and put them at the bottom of the vase for a truly beautiful display.

Initial It


Why not utilize a body of water to create a floral initial (your new last name is pretty significant, don’t you think?) or write a message (LOVE, for example)? We adore the floating “L” made out of flowers in this swimming pool.
