Small details can make a big impact, and we cannot afford to have any of the wrong décors if we want a quintessential wedding reception. The correct wedding table decorating idea designs a perfect table for an excellent reception- something which a newlywed couple would love! You may or may not know, but tables play a very important role on any occasion. Here are five tips to enhance your wedding table:
Do you wish for something passionate? Then go for lots and lots of florets. A minimalist bunch of blooms, vases filled with elegant flowers, bouquets, and garlands spread over the table would look tasteful and sophisticated.
Now, if you want, you can also elevate your ideas of using flowers to decorate the wedding table. Instead of putting the flowers as just centerpieces, you can hang them right above the dining table. Suspending garlands of flowers from the ceiling will not only be unique but will also add a feature to the room.
Another inexpensive way to use flowers is to scatter them on the wedding table around the centerpiece. You can use rosebuds or different combinations of rose petals, say red, pink, and white, along with seashells, beads made of glass, or glitters. You can try out the forever roses as well to make the place look lovely!
A rookie mistake that can be made here is the proportion of the size of the centerpiece to the table. Many times, centerpieces are pretty large, which kind of looks distracting.
Centerpieces such as small bouquets, table runners, or candles would do good. Vintage vases and tiny mirrors would look kind of chic and unique.
The centerpieces can also be according to a theme. For example, say the theme is ‘Autumn Wedding.’ Here you can decorate the wedding table with showpieces of pumpkins or a cup of pumpkin-spiced latte and also dried autumn leaves.
- TABLE CLOTH
Table linen is a mandatory factor. We can choose from a variety of linen, starting from cosmopolitan white linen to heavy embroidered purple linen. Table runners and napkins should be placed accordingly.
For example, if you use a white silk cloth as the table linen, a pink linen handkerchief would go just faultless with it, along with a golden laced table runner.
Always choose a bright and bold color for the table cloth followed by textured or patterns. If you want to use subtle colors for the table cloth, make sure that the table runner is bold. Here comes the glassware and utensils.
The silverware should be according to the table cloth. For example, if you use subtle colors for table cloth, you can have colored glassware.
Clean work looks pretty. Escort cards and table numbers can be put accordingly on the tables to make it easier for the guests to know where they are sitting and eating. For example, if the guests require a special menu- like vegetarian options, eggetarian, gluten-free, or lactose intolerance- these cards can come into handy.
Another creative thing to put on these cards could be little messages like “Thank you for coming!” or “Thank you for being with us on our special day.”, or “It means a lot to us that you could come!” It would look cute and adorable.
You can also have the menu written on the card, starting from appetizers to desserts. If you want to offer custom drinks to guests, you can make an art of display on the cocktail that you are serving.
It is both a unique and smart way to serve drinks, as not only do you get to showcase your artistic idea, but the guests know what they are drinking and whether they are prone to it or not.
- CEILING ABOVE THE WEDDING TABLE
The ceiling above the wedding table is as important as the table itself. You can drape the ceiling above with alluring fabrics. Adding to the ambiance, you can suspend fairy light. You can also suspend lanterns from the ceilings, which will create a dreamy, soothing glow. You can also opt for LED lights and chandeliers but do not make the place too crowded.
