Craig Barritt

Instead of the usual step-and-repeat, stars like Alexa Chung posed in front of a romantic rose-studded hedge at Chanel's annual Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner in 2012.

How to Get Inspired by the Look

Create your own rosy red-carpet moment for your ceremony backdrop. Work with a preexisting doorway or a similar freestanding structure. To create the illusion of a trailing vine, secure each rose and lisianthus to leafy camellia branches. When hung on the molding using adhesive hooks, they form a stunning design.

For a grand effect that's also budget-friendly (Kim and Kanye reportedly spent $130,000 on their flower wall), try this easy ceremony backdrop. Simply string crisp white Easter lilies on fishing line and hang them from dowels in staggered rows to put together an arrangement that brings to mind living wedding bells. Verdant grape ivy vines add a touch of wildness that transforms even the starkest venue into a dreamy retreat.

Saks Fifth Avenue's Glam Gardens

Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store in New York was in full bloom this spring with over a dozen window displays featuring 100,000 fresh flowers. We love how this one for Molton Brown seems to mimic a shower of roses sprinkling down from above.

For a bloomin' awesome—and fragrant—backdrop for your ceremony, cake table, or photo booth, secure hybrid tea roses, a cross-breed of tea and hybrid perpetualis varieties, with tiny t-pins from the crafts store. Position them in such a way to cleverly cover the water tube of the next. Best of all, you only need 75 roses (less than $100 worth) to fill up an 8-by-8-foot surface.

Dior's Haute Couture Blooms


For its winter 2012 haute couture presentation, Dior installed an astonishing setup of multiple rooms with walls covered in gorgeous fresh flowers. The rooms brought color and life to the brand's romantic ensembles and made it appear as if the models were strolling in an ethereal garden.

Assemble your own multicolored flower wall by taping vertical rows of long-stemmed varieties to a wall. Use blooms less prone to wilting, like peonies, carnations, orchids, and lilies. You can either let the strips of tape show—or hide them under petals and leaves. We recommend using Shurtape masking tape for best results.

French botanist Patrick Blanc created this intricate vertical garden on the side of the CaixaForum building, an art museum and cultural center in Madrid. The incredible four-story wall is covered in 15,000 plants from more than 250 different countries, transforming an ordinary space into an urban oasis.

Here, we made a verdant wall using lush houseplants, including ferns, begonia, variegated croten, and dieffenbachia. Pot your design in recycled-plastic planters, or Woolly Pockets, then hang them on a surface with small screws for a beautiful ceremony or photo booth backdrop. The best part is you get to keep all the plants after your wedding!
