It’s your big day and along with planning your decor and making arrangements, you also want to spend time on some last minute details, especially when it comes to your tables! Your guests will be at their tables all night long when they’re not on the dance floor, so you want to make sure they are beautiful and eye-catching. You also want to make sure your table setting goes with the theme of your wedding. After a period full of vows, toasts, cake, and flowers, the day will be over and you want to make your wedding as memorable as possible for your guests. This can be done through personal details that will stand out to your guests. Whether it’s through centrepieces, detailed menus, or dishware, there are always ways to make your tables personalized and unique. Start with different colours, shapes, and textures. Here are some wedding table setting ideas!
Monochromatic Table Setting
Try a monochromatic theme with matching linens, and glassware for a cohesive feeling. For a subtle bit of texture, add in striped napkins.
Mix it Up
Try patterned tablecloths, palm leaves as placemats, and rattan chargers for layers of texture and colour.
Pastel dinnerware, rose-gold flatware, and menus weighted down with glittery pyrite rocks set will make for a memorable table setting. Add in vintage vases with peach, orange, and white poppies for a bright pop of colour.
Back to Nature
Bring in the outdoors by pairing potted plants with fresh bouquets. It looks even more earthy against a wood table.
Copper Table Setting
Decorate your tables with copper chargers and flatware for a unique and pretty aesthetic.
Profile Place Cards
For place cards, create custom silhouette art by photographing the profiles of the bride and groom, cutting their shape out and tracing it onto card stock in the colour of your choice. Stamp female guests’ names above the bride’s silhouette, and males’ names above the groom’s silhouette, then place them in a simple gold frame.
Add decorations like pineapples and palm baubles on your table for a mini island getaway.
Minimalist Table Setting
Use paper-bag place cards and kitchen-towel napkins flanked by flatware and menus punched up with drawings or images. Add in heirloom tomatoes, persimmons, and figs instead of traditional floral centrepieces for a minimal and unique look.
Before splurging on contemporary place settings, look online or in thrift shops for unique sets of antique china and silver flatware.
Floral Table Setting
Place a bright coloured rose tucked into a folded napkin on each menu. Continue the colour scheme in the centrepieces with phalaenopsis orchids, roses, dahlias, and ranunculus.
Writing Place Cards
Writing your own place cards is a super quick and easy way to make your formal table feel inviting and personal.
Summertime Table Setting
Decorate your tables with paper sacks of ripe red cherries, amber glass vessels, and simple floral arrangements.
Succulents to Go
Everyone loves a little something they can take home. Impress your guests with a favour that’s easy to DIY and brings a natural element to the table. Simply paint a small cardboard box, then fill it with long-lasting mini succulents. You’ll create a focal point at each place setting that’s perfect for tucking a place card underneath.
Pink and Patterned
If you love pink and want it to be your main colour, choose different shades and patterns so it doesn’t look overwhelming. Choose patterned and textured napkins and a tablecloth to add some dimension.
Rustic Table Setting
Add long garlands of olive branches, laced with blush-coloured roses, and pomegranates. These would be great at a wedding set on a farm. As a finishing touch, place an olive branch rested atop each napkin.
For an outdoor dinner party, channel the setting sun with rose-tinted tableware. This is both romantic and visually appealing.
Break Out the Linens
Use colourful linens—instead of white or ivory—to give your table tons of personality. It doesn’t have to be anything loud either; light blue or pinks will go well with almost anything.
Fall Table Setting
If your wedding is set in the fall, decorate with garden roses, amber amaranthus, basil, and café au lait dahlias. Have each plate hold a personalized menu calligraphed in plum ink.
Give traditional gold a break and swap in sleek silver. It’ll help your festive table feel a bit more relaxed and can even make things look brighter and modern.
For a playful touch, spray-paint small animal figurines metallic gold or silver and place them in the center of each plate. Tuck a handwritten or calligraphed place card under each animal for a look that’s both regal and playful.
