One of the biggest challenges of having a wedding reception at a big venue is figuring out how to fill it with decor. As much as soaring ceilings and endless floor area inspire awe, they also induce anxiety for couples once they start thinking about florals. We always remind our clients that instead of feeling stressed, they should view this as an opportunity to be creative, expressive, and make their wedding unforgettably unique. There are tried-and-true designs and tablescape plans that tick all the boxes for transforming a cavernous space into a warm and majestic scene. From hanging floral installations to bright white floral arrangements to bold and colorful centerpieces, here are stunning ideas for decorating a large reception venue with wedding flowers.

Caroline and Darius first met during their first year of college in New York City – she was going to FIT, and he was going to NYU. The sparks were apparent to both, so much so that Darius went home to tell his roommate (and best friend) that he had just met the woman he was going to marry. But it wasn’t until after both had studied abroad for a year that Caroline and Darius were able to truly connect. “We met up again at a New Year’s Eve party, and we have been inseparable ever since,” Caroline recalls. “I think we both knew immediately – it felt this was the way it was supposed to be.”

Jaslyn and Andrew met during college when they both were studying abroad. Jaslyn remembers, “On the second night of our program, a group of us headed out for a tapas crawl. I immediately noticed Andrew – he has a voice that carries across the room and makes everyone feel like a good friend.” Andrew was struck by Jaslyn’s warm smile and contagious laugh. Over cocktails, they each felt a spark. For the next six weeks, they were inseparable, traveling to different countries, going on date after date, and getting to know each other.
