How To Style A Wedding Table – Checklist

How to style a wedding table 2 Have you been tearing out pages of magazines and pinning pretty wedding tablescapes to your wedding pinterest boards hoping to achieve something like them for your own wedding? Lots of inspiration is good at the beginning of the wedding planning process and after a while you will start to see a trend of looks, colours and styles you are drawn to. This is a great help in discovering your own wedding style.

Once you have discovered the style of wedding you are going to create get rid of all the inspirational images that don’t fit with this look. If you try to add in everything you have seen on pinterest, regardless of its style, there will be no way to co-ordinate it all. If all the images and ideas you have collected still feel overwhelming we suggest breaking down your wedding table in to the 6 key areas.

  1. place settings
  2. place cards
  3. centrepieces
  4. favours
  5. table linen
  6. chairs

Think about each of these areas of your table and decide how you want them to look, making sure you stay true to your own style. If you do this you will create a beautifully styled table that will wow your guests as they enter the room.

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.
