You have taken care of the bigger details of your clients’ wedding, now you need to take care of the finer details. First up – the wedding table decor. Are you in need of some inspiration?
Here is a list of the 10 best wedding table decoration ideas:
Succulents and Potted Herbs
Succulents may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear wedding table décor. But they have become popular with soon-to-be newlyweds. And why wouldn’t they be? These plants are cute, resilient and low maintenance.
They can add a natural and colorful touch to your wedding table décor. They are so sturdy and versatile that you can even use them as place card holders or as wedding favors. Guests will love them since they are also good for improving your home’s humidity.
But succulents are not the only plants you can use to spruce up your clients’ wedding table décor. You can suggest to them potted herbs, especially for summer weddings.
You can group herbs of different smells and sizes. Make sure you get scents that complement each other and the seasons. Rosemary and lavender are good for fall and winter, and mint and basil for spring and summer.
You can even suggest mixing and matching succulents and potted herbs!
If your clients would like to use more long tables at their wedding, then table runners are a quick and classy way to dress them up. But there is still a lot of variety so that you can have a specific type of table runner to match the feel your clients want. There are many options, for example:
- Classic cloth with a desired design or pattern (polka dots, bright colors, stripes, tribal, etc.)
- Lace to add a romantic and soft-touch
- Sequin for a touch of sparkle
- Floral for a beautiful and natural look
- Macrame for a boho-chic theme
You can even get extremely unique by having table runners with photos of the couple or love letters they wrote to each other.
What’s a celebration without confetti?
Not only can you have personalized wedding confetti for guests to toss at the newlyweds, but they can also be a glitzy way to decorate the wedding tables. Use colors to match or add to the theme. They can be customized to say “Mr. & Mrs. X” or to have touching messages or pet names for the couple.
The best thing is that you don’t need to do much but sprinkle them on the table and go!
Ever heard the saying fruits in your wedding results in a fruitful marriage? No? Well, we made that up but it sounds nice nonetheless.
Fruits are a wonderful way to add some life and creativity to the wedding table décor.
They can work by themselves or pair with florals or another more traditional décor. For instance, as a centerpiece, you can have a vase of sliced lemon with daisies on top or a wooden crate with apples and berries. Or you can use pears or apples as place cards.
There are so many ways you can add some “fruitfulness”. The bonus is that guests have a healthy snack to nibble on while they wait for the festivities.
Pine cones are just too adorable not to be used as wedding décor for fall and winter weddings. They can be incorporated in so many ways. You can use them as centerpieces, place cards or on the wedding cake.
The great thing about using pine cones in your décor is that it is very cost-effective. If you are located in an area with pine trees than you would have them in abundance. If not, they cost only a dollar in craft stores.
Some clients might want a more rustic or vintage look. Adding some wooden crates or wooden slices are wonderful ways of achieving this look. You can get creative with the slices as they go with any color, texture, and style. It can work for both traditional and modern weddings.
The wooden look also brings a sense of ease which is what the bride and groom would want.
Most times, wooden slices and mason jars go hand in hand to complete the rustic look to a wedding. But mason jars can be centerpieces on their own as well. You can fill them with candles, fruit, flowers, candy or anything else the couple fancies.
You can make the jars dressy by tying ribbons, lace or twine around them. Or you can place the jars in a wire holder. After the wedding, the jars can be taken as wedding favors. Or guests can empty the contents and use the mason jars for wedding cocktails!
The lighting of your clients’ wedding is very important to set a romantic mood. So why not add some lanterns to your wedding table décor? They would be there to serve as both décor and lighting.
There are so many styles that can accent the wedding theme perfectly – wooden, gilded, elegant, metallic, etc. You don’t have to stick to just candles either, you can fill the lanterns with flowers as well. This would add some color to the table décor.
Don’t limit lanterns to the table décor either, hang them up or place them in other appropriate areas to give the setting a nice glow.
Birdcages can more or less be treated just as the lanterns. You can fill them with candles or flowers. If you are adventurous, maybe even actual birds! Table numbers could be attached to them or they could be used to store cards from the newlyweds. It’s like killing two birds with one birdcage.
Cupcake and Cake Stands
Usually, when you see cake and cupcake stands at events, they include cake and cupcakes right? But more and more event planners are using them as table décor.
These stands help to focus the attention on the centerpieces. Flowers, leaves, candles, succulents, fruits, etc. are placed on the stands. You can say that it’s like having your cake stand and centerpiece too!
