You want to create that WOW factor when your guests walk through the reception room doors. Sometimes just the simplest of ideas can be really effective and you don't need a big budget to achieve a stylish table setting. This blog shows you some fantastic ways to style your wedding tables!
Simple & Rustic
Long banquet style tables are really popular nowadays and create a relaxed atmosphere. Wild flowers and ivory bistro candles are inexpensive and look lovely. You could even style this yourselves with recycled glassware like jam jars and twine!

Foliage & Table Runners
I love foliage as the table centrepiece! It's great for creating a rustic look and you can style with or without flowers if you're keeping to a budget. You can also dress with a table runner, candlesticks and holders.
Lace can make you think of a traditional wedding but here, as a table runner, it looks so modern and elegant. Pair with clear glassware and table accessories for an understated look.
There is always the anticipation at weddings for guests to find out where they are sitting! Mounted table plans are perfect for propping on an easel or outside your venue.
Modern Table Settings
Raffia is a simple way to style your table settings. Paired with linen or cotton napkins, this idea is really effective. The natural colour looks great with any colour too and perfect for a coastal theme or rustic wedding.

A lovely addition to your wedding stationery are printed wedding menus as guests really appreciate knowing what will be served. Create a truly beautiful table setting by placing an individual wedding menu for each guest paired with a personalised place card.
PaperLove inc. ribbon place cards are hand-finished with a copper eyelet and stylish knot. For x2 place cards entwined with ribbon, you can specify the wording for each card. For example, the smaller card could note your wedding date, names or initials.

Create drama with tall floral centrepieces. Classic wedding foliage like ivy and eucalyptus look stunning overhanging from the display. Be careful when choosing heights for your centrepieces though to ensure guests will be able to see each other without ducking under flowers!
You can also style your floral designs with everyday objects like wooden crates and lanterns. Create lovely keepsakes by personalising wooden crates; ideal for growing herbs, using as storage or even sending as wedding memory boxes for close family and friends.

Lanterns look amazing amongst foliage and flowers. They are also a much safer way to have candles burning at the table. As the evening draws in, you can easily move the lanterns to a cosy area or outside.
