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.

Gone are the days where couples where restricted to traditional round guest tables. Brides and grooms are now embracing wooden trestle tables, which are just perfect for foliage and copper wedding styling. As seen in Brides magazine, you can line the length of the table with a variety of greenery and foliage. You can work in a few other flowers that fit in with your colour scheme, such as elegant ivory or colour-popping pink for Spring or Summer. The foliage garland will work as the base for your table centrepiece.

If you want to add an extra touch of sparkle to your wedding tables, consider using a white and gold chevron table runner. The combination of metallics works beautifully to create an ultra-modern wedding table style. Alternatively, if you wanted a rustic glamour feel to your wedding tables, you could opt for a hessian or burlap material instead. We have a collection of fab table runners here!

While our Copper Geometric Candle Holders look stylish filled with tea lights, they can be used in so many other ways too. You can add pretty flowers or simple succulents to them, lining them along the table for an extra special touch. Some couples even use larger versions to hold their wedding cards, and they look so glam on your gift table.

10 Swoon-Worthy Spring Wedding Centrepieces

We think that a Spring wedding is the perfect match for a country garden theme. Style your wedding tables with a variety of mismatched watering cans and fill them with your favourite Spring blooms. Opt for Daffodils, Tulips and handfuls of Sweet Pea for a natural look that looks as if you’ve hand-picked them from your garden. You could collect different watering cans over the course of your wedding planning, or ask friends and family to help out. The best news is they won’t tug on the purse strings!

If you’re tying the knot over the Easter weekend, why not incorporate the celebration into your wedding theme? A traditional Easter tree is a lovely option for your Spring wedding centrepieces and they’re easy to pull together. Simply fill a jug, vase or pot with some dried twigs and hang little Easter ornaments from the branches. You could write your table number on the front of a jug, or place a small sign between the twigs.

Birdcages make beautiful table centrepieces throughout the year, but they’re a super pretty addition for a Spring wedding. Trail ivy around the outside of the birdcage, or fill it bursting with beautiful blooms. Tea-lights and candles look lovely placed inside the birdcage, particularly in the evening.

A pastel colour scheme is simply perfect for a Spring wedding. Painted mason jars in various hues of baby pink, sky blue and mint look gorgeous clustered together. Fill the jars with tea-lights or seasonal posies, and you’ve got yourself some seriously pretty Spring wedding centrepieces.

A rustic wedding theme has always been a popular choice for brides and grooms, and it’s wonderfully suited to a Spring celebration. A rustic wooden tree slice makes a fab base for your centrepieces, and it’ll help to give your wedding venue a woodland vibe. Wrap hessian or burlap ribbon around jam or mason jars and place a handful of pretty yellow blooms in each jar. Opting for yellow flowers will sprinkle your wedding day with sunshine, and it’s a subtle nod towards the season. Follow the theme throughout your wedding tables by using a hessian table runner and burlap wedding favour bags.

If you’re planning on using long trestle tables at your wedding reception, you’ll need a centrepiece that lines the length of the table. We recommend using an abundance of greenery to cover the centre of your banquet tables. Work in a few tea-lights, candles and colourful Spring flowers for an extra special touch. However, as you’ll know from Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, greenery alone works just as well.

If you want to create a relaxed, whimsical wedding theme for your Spring celebration, listen up! We suggest collecting a mixture of jars, bottles and small vases throughout your wedding planning. You’ll be able to source them at car boot sales, antique shops or over on The Wedding of My Dreams shop. Using a variety of different styles, colours and shapes will make your wedding tables look absolutely stunning. Place a single posy in each jar and line them along a wooden trestle table. This simple idea looks incredibly effective.
