10 Fall Wedding Flower Chandelier Ideas
If you really want to wow guests at your upcoming fall wedding, look no further than a floral chandelier! They can be hung above reception tables, above the altar, and above the dance floor. Not to mention, they can add a sense of drama and romance to your big day.
Just don’t make the mistake of thinking all chandeliers are created equal. There are many different ways to create a custom floral chandelier for your wedding.
Vintage Chandelier Decorated With Flowers: The Mantilla Company
1. Vintage Floral Chandelier
Fall wedding flowers often have a vintage appearance. If that’s a look you love, use it to inspire your chandelier display.
Hit up local antique stores and look for old brass or tole chandeliers that can be draped with fall wedding flowers like Dahlias, Gypsophila, and Queen Anne's Lace. Not only can you find old chandeliers at a great price, your display will look even better when every chandelier is a little different, so you don’t have to worry about finding pieces that match exactly.
Hanging Floral Chandelier with Lights: Bridal Guide
2. Flower Chandelier With Lighting
It’s true that flowers can stand on their own beautifully when woven into a wedding chandelier, but you can make your display look even more romantic if you add a little lighting.
Candles are a romantic addition to any chandelier, but if dealing with open fire laws is too much of a hassle for you, consider a floral light fixture instead. Battery operated candles can give you that romantic glow without any fire dangers, while fairy lights can give your celebration a whimsical feel.
Simple Greenery Chandelier: Brides
3. Greenery Chandelier
Flowers can be fussy. If you don’t want to worry about wilting blooms, consider a greenery chandelier instead.
Weave olive branches, eucalyptus, and fir branches through your chandeliers to bring in a little color without having to commit to specific hues. If you think your hanging greenery chandelier looks a little boring, jazz things up with sprigs of filler flowers, like baby's breath, or ribbon.
Chandeliers Made Out of Wreaths: Beautiful Days Events
4. Wreath Chandelier
If you’re looking for chandeliers that can be assembled ahead of time instead of assembling them the day of your wedding, consider a wreath chandelier. They can be comprised of greenery, but you have so many more options when you’re planning a wedding this fall.
Add favorite fall flowers, but you should also consider adding colorful fall leaves, sprigs of eucalyptus, mini pumpkins, and acorns.

5. Faux Flower Chandelier
Another option you have when making wedding chandeliers if you don’t want to have to deal with too many fresh flowers is to choose faux flowers. They can give you the same look as using your favorite flowers, but without all the fuss.
Using faux flowers can be as simple as using silk flowers from your local craft store, but you can also get a bit more creative. Flowers can be made out of paper, beads, wood, and many other materials.
Tall Tabletop Chandelier: Ever After Vintage Weddings
6. Tabletop Chandelier
There’s no denying that chandeliers look striking when hung from the ceiling, but hanging things from the ceiling may not be an option at your wedding. You don’t have to give up on your chandelier dreams! Consider wedding table chandeliers instead.
Table chandeliers have the look of a traditional chandelier, but they are supported from below with long candle sticks, acrylic stands, and other items that prop the chandelier up above the table.
One Oversized Chandelier with Greenery and Flowers: Plan It
7. Oversized Chandelier
Fall wedding centerpieces can be beautiful, but they can also be a pain because there are so many to make when you have multiple tables to decorate. Chandeliers can pose the same problem if you have more than one to hang. If you want less to do, consider a single oversized chandelier. That way, you’ve only got one to hang. For example, you can decorate a large hanging pendant with flowers to hang above the dance floor.
If you don’t mind doing a little bit more hanging in the name of creating a unique display, create free-form, wild hanging flower arrangements to create a single focal point all the way down a long table.
Hanging Geometric Shapes With Flowers: My Wedding
8. Dainty Geometric Chandeliers
Keeping things simple might mean reducing the number of chandeliers you have to hang, but it could also mean the opposite, if you do it right. Instead of focusing on hanging floral décor that features large arrangements, consider hanging many geometric air planters above tables and the altar.
Small planters can contain a single bloom, sprigs of greenery can hang from the wires, and air plants look right at home when encased inside. Without the fuss of complicated floral arrangements, these dainty geometric chandeliers can be assembled in no time.
Hanging Potted Flowers: Brides
9. Potted Plant Chandeliers
How do you make a flower chandelier? If this question has you feeling stuck and you don’t want to put in the effort to figure out how to secure flowers to a structure, consider potted plant chandeliers instead.
With potted plants, there’s no need to spend hours securing them to a frame. Flowers can be arranged ahead of time, while mums are a popular fall plant that can easily be hung from the ceiling inside self-contained pots.
Multi-Layered Hoop Chandelier: Miss Plan It
10. DIY Hoop Chandelier
If you’re looking for an affordable way to create multiple chandeliers that don’t involve scouring antique stores or shopping for items in bulk, make a DIY flower chandelier out of a wedding ceiling hoop instead. Because the hoop will be completely covered in flowers and greenery, you can use cheap hoops from the dollar store.
Decorate a single hoop or layer hoops together for a custom look. No one will guess what’s hiding underneath all those flowers!
