Table centrepieces

Elegant tall vases filled with floral blooms or low floral table centres are the easiest option, offering an excellent way of adding colour and style to your tables.  Add candles for a glow of light or something more dramatic such as hanging floral chandeliers or suspended hanging lanterns to create a real talking point and glamorous wedding photos.  Glass and mirrors add an extra dimension reflecting candlelight and colour to great effect.  Antique Finish Wooden Sign  Table names, numbers and place cards  Printed, hand-written or painted table names or numbers with eye-catching embellishments will make your wedding tables unique.  Sophisticated chrome holders for your table names or numbers are all you need to finish the look.

Table linens and floral table runners

As a general rule, white or ivory tablecloths are the safest option, and you might choose to add a splash of colour with bright or pastel shaded napkins or colourful glassware.  For a more dramatic look, experiment with coloured or patterned table linen for instance 1950s retro themed wedding tables look stunning with a polkadot table cloth and autumn wedding tables look warm and bright in shades of red and orange.  The key is not to overdo it by mixing too many colours and patterns. Keep it simple with just a table runner if you prefer.  And for something different a real floral table runner is quite a show-stopper for a rustic country style or a more formal wedding. An elegant cascading sweep of colour and foliage might cost you more but it will look amazing.

Favours bring good luck to your marriage and can be traditional sugared almonds or contemporary gifts and keepsakes.  Table confetti is another easy way to add colour and interest.
