Tablescape ideas for the perfect wedding reception

Elevate your wedding with beautiful tables. Tablescaping is a lovely way to show your guests that you care about them and that the meal is special... plus just think of all the dreamy photos.

However, as exciting as wedding decor can be, many of our Parihoa wedding couples get a bit stuck when it comes to creating a unique wedding tablescape, and we often get asked for advice on “how to make a wedding tablescape” or “what centrepieces to choose and what to put on a wedding table?”

Beautiful Table Styling

There is of course no right or wrong way to decorate your wedding reception.  Ultimately it comes down to what you both like, oh and budget of course! But to help you get your creative minds flowing and to inspire your wedding table settings and decorations we decided to share some wedding tablescape top tips from the top global wedding media.

 

1. CANDLELIGHT IS THE BEST LIGHT

Candles are one of the easiest (and most gorgeous) wedding tablescape ideas for doing so, as long as you know exactly where to place them for the most visually-pleasing effect.

Check out the Wedding Wire for planning tools and inspiration.  

 

 

2. SELECT YOUR PLATES, FLATWARE, GLASSWARE

Your plate, flatware and glassware setting selection helps to complete your story. There are many styles that can be rented to fashion your design. Having the setting on the table when the guests arrive is like an invitation to the feast.

3. FLOWERS

When in doubt, go to town on the flowers!

4. CHAIRS

This goes without saying, that your guests would need chairs to sit on. However, for options, some favorites include x-back chairs, folding chairs, and Chiavari chairs. If you’re going for something completely different, you could also use comfy poufs.

5. NAPKINS

Do something that adds dimension, texture and/or color to the setting.

6. PLAY WITH YOUR CHOSEN COLOUR SCHEME

Adding an accent of colour to the different elements of your wedding tablescape is an easy way to tie all of your decorations together. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to the same colour across all of your decor. Explore different shades of your chosen colour palette to add depth and variety.

If you’re after a more extravagant and luxe wedding table look, a pink floral display certainly packs a punch and makes for a very pretty picture.

8. FIND YOUR INSPIRATION.

Inspiration boards, I can’t stress enough the importance of taking the time to pull ideas for your wedding details and tablescape design, as we talked about in an earlier post. This is when your wedding style really starts to emerge and you’re able to narrow in on what your overall vision is and also how that will translate into the details.
