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.
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.
This week our wedding decorations of the week are from our rustic glamour wedding stationery range. These brown kraft luggage tags with gold polka dots can be a lovely finishing touch to a rustic glamour styled wedding. The luggage tags come blank so can be written on by hand, enlist the help of someone with lovely handwriting or search for a calligrapher to write on them for you. Use as place settings, gift tags, favour tags, dessert table labels or whatever you fancy.

Smooth pieces of sea glass make stunning wedding place cards, especially if you’re having a romantic beach celebration.
