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.

Botanical Inspiration

This is a wonderful way of doubling up your wedding place cards as wedding favours. Small plant pots with succulents, cacti or even flowers will look lovely at your tables. Simply attach a small piece of paper with names onto a cocktail stick, and place in the pot. Perfect for a botanical or garden inspired wedding!

Rustic Elegance

Cork place cards are not only elegant, they’re unique! Fit plain white place cards in each cork and you’ve got yourself some very chic place settings. If you can’t source enough corks, long branches will have the same effect – especially if you want something with a little rustic elegance.

Sea Dreams

Sea glass is one of my favourite materials to use at weddings. The colour, texture and overall look is just enchanting. Smooth pieces of sea glass make stunning wedding place cards, especially if you’re having a romantic beach celebration. Simply write the name of each guest in white or even silver pen, and you’ve got yourself the most unique and natural place card you can find…
