  • Decide on the names of your tables, these could be cities or countries that are significant to you as a couple.
  • Print the table name and guests names on to address labels, these could be plain white address labels (24 per A4 page). Here I have used our brown rustic labels for more of a travelling look. I have also used a typewriter style font, you can download fonts for free from various different websites, I like dafont.com.
  • Stick the printed labels onto your luggage tags.

  • Add length of bakers twine to your first luggage tag and stick on the map near the country / city it corresponds to.
  • Place a mapping pin into the city country on the map.
  • Tie the bakers twine around the mapping pin and cut at the right length, stick the luggage tag to the print so it doesn't move about.
  • Repeat this for all your tables
  • Place the frame on an easel

Lanterns For Wedding Centrepieces

Have you thought about using lanterns for wedding centrepieces? Lanterns in the centre of your tables can look stunning as your centrepieces. Place a pillar candle inside each lantern and add a floral touch to the table. You could add flowers in small vases or bottles around the base of each lantern, or tie a small bunch or posy to a couple of corners of the lanterns. These make lovely centrepieces ane even better, you could gift the lanterns to a nominated guest on each table if you wish. If you have chosen long tables spread out lanterns down the centre of the table, you could alternate them with flowers and candles down the table. Use the same lanterns around the venue, at the entrance, in outdoor spaces, near your guest book to give some continuity to the decor. If you like this idea why not have a look at the lanterns we have available in our shop. See all our lanterns here.

White Lanterns For Weddings Can Be Used as Centrepieces

Have you thought about using lanterns as an alternative to a vase for your wedding centrepieces? Our white lanterns are popular as lanterns at weddings, I think couples like the white colour to tie in with their neutral wedding colour palettes. But more and more of our customers are telling us they are using their lanterns not just for candles for filled with flowers for their wedding table decorations. These white lanterns work perfectly as vases as they have a small glass container within them which can be filled with water. The lanterns are not enclosed like so many other lanterns, so the flowers can breathe. Perfect for a summer or winter wedding don't you think?
