Wedding Table setting Ideas

Winter Themed Wedding Tablescaping

You can find some inspiration here if you need help deciding what table setting to select for your winter wedding. The typical colour combo is silver and white. Throw in crystal, glass, and white flowers, and you have your stylish winter-like table. Pine cones, fir branches and white lace will bring a romantic feel to the table, bringing back memories of Christmas. You can also achieve a dramatic look by going for contrasting colours like blue and white or red and white. Remember to bring the candles for a cosy and warm feel.

Colour Combinations

The most common colour combinations for inter weddings are neutrals, white and gold, black and white and burgundy and gold. Try black and rock grey with a touch of white and greenery for a moody feel. Highlight the colours with blooms and linens.

Table Décor

The basics of winter wedding décor include pinecones, evergreens, cinnamon, blooms and greenery. Make evergreen and berry runners, wood slice placemats and rock floral centrepieces.

Can You Use Metallics for a Winter-Themed Wedding Tablescape?

Yes, metallic candleholders, napkins and some gilded touches such as pinecones give your tablescape a feel of festivity and elegance. You should, however, be careful when decorating with metallics, as overdoing them could result in tasteless looks.

Garden Themed Wedding Tablescaping

Outdoor weddings are often highlighted with lush pastures backed with vibrant blossoms. Because weather plays a key role in the planning of a garden-themed wedding, it is only reasonable that you settle on a beautiful and practical venue. For the chairs, decorate with real blossoms. Besides bringing a pop of colour, flowers diffuse their pleasant scents throughout the space.

Colour Schemes

If you have decided on a colour scheme for the entire event, consider it while selecting table décor too. Pastels are known to exude romance, so they are never a bad idea. You can also go for jewel tones and colourful tablescapes. Because style is important in a wedding tablescape, most people prefer a more refined and vintage look. It may include vintage cutlery, sophisticated placemats and gold edge glasses. However, you can always opt for a modern look. Items like solid colour plates, placemats and simple cutlery would go well with your modern garden wedding look.

Table Décor

The main component of a garden wedding tablescape is the blooms. It is therefore important that you pay attention to them. Opt for a table runner, lush floral garland, or an overhead floral installation. You could select gorgeous lush blooms of various types but with a common colour palette. This gives your venue an eye-catchy and textural look. As for fabrics, go for pastel or neutral linens. You could also throw in a table runner or moss tablecloth. Summer garden tablescapes may include at the right of the table or in the centrepieces. To complete this look, thin and tall candles are a necessity. For the cutlery, anything goes. From modern and edgy to magical and vintage, there are many options to choose from.

Pro Tips

  • Neutral hues
  • Bold bloom centrepieces

Modern Themed Wedding Tablescaping

Vintage style is slowly fading, and more people are shifting to modern and minimalist wedding décor. This décor is marked with elegance, timelessness and chicness. So, how do you effortlessly pull off such décor?

Here are some ideas for an exciting and welcoming modern wedding table setting.

Colour Schemes

Modern décor is all about monochrome. So consider tan, beige, white, cream and other like colours. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different colours. If you’re feeling bold, why not bring a pop of colour with pink, orange, brown and mustard?

Textiles

When decorating a modern wedding tablescape, you can never go wrong with an uncovered table, provided it is polished or sleek and clear. You could use a flowy table run or choose to forego it. As for the napkins, cream or rock crispy are your go-to colours. Textiles are a great way to add colour to your setting.

Table Décor

Begin by creating an impression with a table runner or centrepiece. A great idea would be a textural greenery runner. It could have blooms or not. For the centrepiece, glass or porcelain vases are a nice choice. Although you can try floral centrepieces, be careful to do the bloom sparingly. In addition, elegant thin and massive candles are always welcome to spruce things up a little bit. Glasses could be clear or coloured and sleek, and cutlery should be gold or black.

Here are some table set tips:

  • Place the plates in a straight line on the table – a good start!
  • Glasses are placed from right to left in the order they should be used
  • Don’t put too many flowers on the table between envelopes as they can obscure the view
  • A small present to each guest at their places looks nice and is a decoration in itself
  • If bread is served, it should be placed on the table ready for the guests
