Trending Now: Floral & Greenery Hoop Details
When it comes to wedding symbolism, circles are fairly universal. They're spatially infinite and represent wholeness, totality, and perfection. You'd be hard-pressed to find a shape that better epitomizes your union with your spouse-to-be—which is why many modern couples are actually incorporating circle details into their ceremony and reception décor. The result? Floral- and-greenery packed hoop details that are just as beautiful as they are meaningful.
Take the following circle décor ideas from real weddings, for example. From in-bloom hoop ceremony backdrops to the prettiest bridesmaid bouquet alternatives and everything in between, these inspired, on-trend details are bound to make a poignant impression. The best part? There's a way to make these details work whatever your wedding style—and whatever time of year you decide to walk down the aisle. Although many of these options showcase pretty blooms, there are plenty of ways to dial the hoop trend down, too. Take notes from one couple and opt for a circular straw arrangement, instead, or else stick with rings of leafy greens. They look creates just as much impact without being too overwhelming.
Ultimately, these pretty hoops bring a bit of intrigue to virtually any part of your wedding—your head-table, outdoor tent, and reception lounge included. Whether you're setting up a circular swing for your guests to sway on, putting a twist on classic place card presentation, or simply dressing up your venue, these hoop wedding details are sure to bring individuality, meaning, and a whole lot of pretty to your big day.
Hoop Bridesmaid Bouquets
Looking for a way to switch up your bridesmaids' clutches? Replace traditional bouquets with gold hoops, adorned with eucalyptus, roses, and dahlias, just like these arrangements from Joy in Bloom. Better yet, use blooms that also appear in your own spray.

There are many ways to mark the head table, where you and your new spouse will share your first meal as a married couple. Identify your special seats with an natural wooden hoop suspended from above—like this one by The Bloemist and Forrest and J—adorned with buds that tie back to your table's centerpiece.
If you're looking for the perfect way to spice up your bridal portraits, channel this weight-bearing hoop created by Charis Events & Design. Just imagine how beautiful you'll look perched on a circle of blooms, in the wedding dress of your dreams?
Define your bohemian lounge area, complete with rugs, cozy throw pillows, and snacks (of course!), with a minimalist wooden structure topped with a series of rings and blooms. This one was dreamt up by Maui Palm Tree Floral.
If you think that the hoop trend is limited to décor, Sharleen and Shannon of Sweet Celebrations prove that loops look just as lovely on wedding cake. The duo used green wire and grape vine to form this confection's dimensional circles, punctuated by berries, sugar succulents, and tiny blooms.
We all know that photo booth stations are all about the props. Drape an oversized peace sign with metallic tinsel, add on a few blooms, ground the entire structure with disco balls like Belle Fiori did here and you've just created an Instagram-worthy backdrop.
Translucent wire makes this gold, half-wrapped altar piece look like it's suspended in mid-air. Gather Design Company used hydrangea, roses, and daises on this hoop as a nod to the bunches that marked the aisle.
If you're as in love with the hoop trend as we are, don't opt for just one loop. To switch things up, copy this JL Designs creation and hang multiple circles (use different types of greens for a more visually-intriguing piece!) from a traditional ceremony arch.
If your venue's grounds need a little something extra, consider hanging a series of beribboned hoops (like these from Sarah's Garden) from tree branches.
Your ceremony hoop isn't just a symbol of your everlasting union or a decorative floral arrangement—it's also a frame. Highlight a spectacular view, like this scenic New York City skyline, by placing your hoop in just the right spot, like Gardenia Organic's did here.
These "chandeliers" prove that hoops are often the jumping off point for more involved décor. Wooden sticks, floral bunches, and hanging lightbulbs, like this creation from Steven Boyle Design, transform these basic embroidery hoops into an extraordinary tent installation.

Loops and Twinkly Lights
Cast a warm glow on your head table by stringing fairy lights overhead. Suspending loops alongside the lights adds a modern touch and ties the backdrop to the actual table, marked with a loop of its own.
Not all wedding hoops involve lush, verdant florals. This Rogue & Fox Floral Co circle of wheat and barley looks just as lovely—especially if you're throwing a fall fête—and works particularly well with other dried blooms.
Show off your curated food selection in an elegant hoop. Be sure to place one at the head of each guest table, so that everyone can see what's one the menu.
