The Top Trends in Wedding Tables and Decorations
Every woman has dreamt about saying their “I Dos” since she was a little girl, but when it comes to their “Big Day”, most brides have little idea of how they want their wedding reception venue to look. Unless you’re a wedding planner pro, getting wedding tables and decorations sorted is not an easy task, and with so many wedding table decorating ideas found in magazines, blogs and on social media, it’s easy for new brides to be weighed down by choice.
While it may seem quite simple, it’s never a case of just putting a few long or round tables together, displaying some colourful flowers in vases and hiring pretty plates, glasses and cutlery – you want your guests to be blown away by your choice of theme, colour and style. Below, we sneak a peek at the hottest trends in wedding tables and decorations, so that you can get some ideas.
Wedding Themes Have Become Personal
While you may have already booked your venue and chosen your dress – you still need to decide on your wedding theme! Themes are very important and by choosing one, you’ll see how easy it is to create an unforgettable day that will be remembered for a lifetime. Limited only by your imagination, weddings have headed towards bohemian-chic, vintage glamour and woodland/rustic in terms of style and design. Moving away from over-the-top traditional receptions that boast grand wedding tables with bold decorations, we’re now seeing simple yet elegant floral cascading flower arrangements and small greenery centrepieces.
Wedding Favours Combined with Table Décor
While wedding favours are often presented at place settings, the latest trend is favours playing double-duty as table decorations. Having gone DIY in recent years, when it comes to combining favours with table décor, there really are no hard and fast rules, so you can be as imaginative and creative as you like. From doubling up as place-card holders that boast small vintage picture frames or customised photo jigsaw puzzles, favours stacked in 3 tier centrepieces on each table that replicate the wedding cake design, gourmet chocolate table buffets that come with boxes embellished with ribbon and decorative accents, to wedding favours that hang off each chair – you can be as creative and as original as you like when combining your wedding favours with your décor.
