Wedding tables set the scene at your reception and show off what kind of a wedding you have created.

Whether it be a little bit boho, vintage, traditional, colourful, country-style, city chic or even a little bit rock and roll.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best and we’ve put together a few here for you to be thinking about, all created by our stylists for brides.

Adding a touch of sparkle using a sequinned table runner

Our stylists have much to offer and something that brides particularly appreciate is their access to props that lift a wedding from the ordinary to the super special. For example, if you want to have wedding tables with a touch of sparkle, they will add props like sequinned table runners in colours to suit your wedding theme.

Adding a rustic touch

Using a variety of different vases for flowers is very on-trend. Here our stylist has topped off the look with a rustic-style centrepiece and a wooden table number to complete the effect.

festive bauble table centres

Festive baubles can add a seasonal touch to a table centre

Instead of flowers, you could add a seasonal touch to your wedding tables by decorating the centres with clear glass globes filled with festive baubles in a colour of your choice. Here the stylist has used silver and purple, but of course the shades are up to you and you can mix and match them between tables. The baubles would also make memorable wedding favours, for example you could simply add a tag with the guest’s name to each one.

Fill a birdcage with fresh flowers

Think outside the box, or rather outside the container when it comes to wedding table flowers. You don’t have to use traditional vases. Here our stylist has put a flower arrangement complete with a candle inside a decorative birdcage, to create the perfect touch for a country-style wedding table. As a bit of contrast, there’s a glittery table number so guests know where they are sitting.

Using napkins to showcase flowers

Your guests’ napkins or serviettes can work as a focal point on a wedding table centerpiece. You could tuck a wedding favour into each napkin. Here our stylist has used a beautiful orchid but of course there are many other blooms you can use such as roses, lavender or a gerbera it depends on the style of wedding table you’re after.

Coloured chargers

Using charger plates, as above, in metallic shades, gives a sophisticated look to your tables and many of our wedding stylists will have a varied selection. If you think your table needs a ‘lift’, then a charger plate is a tried and tested way of adding another dimension simply and effectively.

Using crystal beads

You’ll also find that our stylists have some rather more unusual props at their disposal that you may never have thought of. For example, in this image above our stylists have decorated the tables with wishing trees that have hanging crystal beads for a fairy tale effect, that suits the medieval style venue to perfection.

Adding some 1920’s glitz

If you’re having an evening wedding, then you want to create an atmosphere that’s a bit glamorous. Here our stylists used elegant ostrich feathers in a white shade to give the tables a touch of 1920’s glamour.

As you can see, our stylists have plenty of ideas when it comes to helping you with your wedding tables and plenty of props to help you achieve the look you’re after meaning you won’t have to invest in the props yourself as they’re all part of the service.

We have found that it helps a lot of our brides to create an online scrapbook using Pinterest for example and collect images that inspire you and show the sort of effect you’re trying to achieve. Feel free to contact one of our stylists – there’s sure to be one local to you – and have an informal, no-obligation chat. Show the stylist your ideas and take it from there. It’s a bit like going to the hairdresser and showing off the hairstyle you’d like to have.

Because you’re not spending time and money sourcing items yourself and don’t have to worry about storing or trying to sell them on afterwards you will probably find that using a wedding stylist actually saves you money and it will certainly take the stress away knowing your wedding styling is in good hands.
