Put away the organza, the white linen tablecloths, and the bouquets of flowers until you’ve looked at these five new and refreshing ways to dress your wedding table
Behind every great wedding, there’s a fabulous decorated table and décor. Wedding receptions take many shapes and forms, including romantic, rustic, woodland or bright pops of colour. No wedding is the same, nor is any wedding reception table for that matter. And with a little help from Paperchase, your wedding décor can look stunning and personal without taking focus away from the happy couple.
For a fairytale wedding
Flowers, pink hues and gold touches – these tables are fit for royals. Forget about Harry and Meghan, this look will make your day the real royal wedding. Who can’t resist floral touches year round, or heart shapes for the big day?
These romantic decorations will transform the venue from a blank space to a fairy tale come true. Whether you opt for a table cloth or runner you can never go wrong with a sprinkle of small white petals or heart wedding confetti. Set the romantic mood with glitter heart tea light candles, perfect in glass jars or on their own. Add a finishing touch of mini-ribbon roses scattered over the table to really make the night rosy.
For the guests, line the back of the chairs with wedding chair reservation tags and get the party going as guests gather around the table to celebrate the newlyweds.
A colourful ever after
Scratch the traditional route of white accents and make your wedding technicolour. For those who aren’t afraid of a bit of fun, this is for you. Forget about a white, blush pink, or baby blue colour scheme – stay wild, even when you’re tying the knot.
Show your guests your fun side and make your tables as vibrant as you are. Sprinkle multi circle confetti across the tables, and add push up confetti canisters for each guest to celebrate the newlyweds. Make a centre piece out of rainbow confetti wand balloons, with rainbow fairy lights inside the vase. You can even add a rainbow marquee light for a full rainbow effect for a colourful night guests won’t forget.
Personal touches for a DIY queen
If you’re feeling thrifty, be your own DIY craft queen and save a pretty penny on your wedding. Make your tables exactly the way you want them, by gathering pieces and putting them together to make them just perfect.
Light up the room by making fairy light jars using gold LED fairy lights in glass favour jars as a centrepiece. Add in DIY tissue flowers for a crafty touch and complete by wrapping Mrs and Mr Satin wedding ribbon around the jar or opt for white grosgrain ribbon.
Paint a pretty picture by filling photo frames with pictures and trinkets of your favourite moments with your loved one, like a photo booth pic of your favourite trip, or a ticket from that special gig you went to together.
For the minimalist
Keep the table simple, so all attention is on you! Keep it classy and elegant with a white and gold colour scheme, accented with foil hearts and white heart confetti. Let your guests have their cake and eat it too, with gold heart paper plates and foil heart mini paper napkins.
You can even spruce up the table with a vase of fresh flowers in the centre of the table, finished with honeycomb hearts. With all eyes on you and an elegant table, everyone will be feeling the love.
For a rustic touch
Give your wedding a bit of countryside charm with chic and rustic décor. For a sophisticated yet homey feel, rustic touches make for an Instagram and Pinterest-worthy occasion.
Ditch having flowers at the centrepiece and keep it down-to-earth with a large terrarium filled with succulents to make everyone green with envy of how beautiful the tables look. Let guests know which table they’re at with rustic wedding table numbers, printed with calligraphy numbers on kraft paper.
Keep it neutral and soft with the lighting by using gold geo wire fairy lights, to keep your wedding table decor trendy and fresh. Add a personal touch by putting in images of the couple with friends and family in a double copper photo frame for a bit of a laugh and to remind guests of all the good times they’ve had with the couple. Whatever your style, Paperchase have all you need to create your perfect wedding.
