Elegant Wedding Place Settings And Napkin Dressing Inspiration

Sometimes a single flower is all you need to add elegance to your wedding place settings. A rose works perfectly for a country garden or vintage wedding theme. If you’re planning a colourful Summer wedding, you could use a cut lisianthus or rose head. Tuck it in the napkin or place in a small bud vase to avoid it wilting.

Green wreaths are being used throughout wedding venues as backdrops or hanging installations. However, we are swooning over the thought of using a small floral wreath to add some prettiness to your place settings. You could create the same style throughout your tables, or create a different design for each guests. These are so gorgeous that they could easily double up as your wedding favours too.

A simple ribbon can have huge impact on your wedding place settings and napkin dressing. A sprig of lavender or greenery will look lovely tied to your napkin with a luxurious velvet ribbon.

Alternatively, why not tie your cutlery together with a silk ribbon? You can then place them in the middle of the plates and your wedding place settings will look stunning. Using ribbon is also a purse-friendly idea that looks beautiful, without breaking the bank!

For a sprinkling of romance, we suggest adding an antique metal key to your wedding place settings. Tie to your napkin with a delicate ribbon and offer them to your guests as a wedding favour. Keys can represent a number of things at a wedding. ‘You’re the key to my heart’ or ‘Unlocking our future’ our both lovely quotes to use. You could handwrite them on a little luggage tag and attach them to the key.
