In any reception, the thing that captures a lot of attention is the wedding table. That is apart from the wedding couple of course. Since this is where the good conversations start and fine wine and food are served, wedding tables should be taken into great consideration.
The decorations that will adorn your wedding table can surely be the highlight and great emphasis of the wedding reception. So here are some wonderful ideas to help you decorate it well.
If you happen to have quite a dim reception location, it is better to use candles places in tiny boxes of glass to be situated along side each setting. This could contribute to a dreamy surrounding while still making it convenient for the guests to gobble up their food. For a great centrepiece, you can use huge glass bowls that are clear where shells are added. This is perfect for a beach wedding to serve as an interesting accent that would complement the theme. You can also use extra flowers in colours of white and green to come hand in hand with the shells, to make it feel closer to nature.
If you are both a romantic, you can spread out rose petals on tables. Use an assortment of different sized candles for another centrepiece idea. Bind them up together with some strings and beads to add some shimmer. As an alternative, you can use ribbons or lace. Your chose china set must be appropriate with the theme of your wedding. For an informal wedding event, you can use just simple white porcelains, or square plates for a more creative twist. For formal weddings on the other hand, you can use an elegant placemat with a gold tint. To add more, get some silver embossed vases and get them filled with a number of tulips in different colours. This would serve as the accent already that would highlighted on its own.
Embellish the chairs with some ribbons of ivory or gold and match it with table napkins of the same colour. Tie alternate styles of flowers in each chair. You can settle for a good combination of lilac and ivory flowers and candles as well. Anything square is something different and innovative for wedding tables. Choose a uniform colour for square tables and square plates. A good example of colour would be ice blue for the table cloths and ice blue for the ribbons in the chair. Make the table napkins in a lighter shade.
You have to place around three to four wine bottles in each wedding table and with this, you are suggested to use dark roses to strike a balance with the dramatic colour combination. Some includes the couple’s photo on every table. Clear glass and plates are for those who are after the minimal look. For a rustic appearance, you can use anything brown and deep red for the drapes, tables, napkins, etc. For beach weddings, just in case there would a wedding table, it’s important to place a huge clear bowl of fruits to be the centrepiece.
Whatever is your choice, the wedding table should not be taken for granted.
