Aside from the bride herself, one of the next most important aspects of a wedding is the reception table décor. One table of course will feature the wedding cake as well as food and another table will be for the groom, featuring his groom cake. Also, the guest tables must be taken into consideration. The tables may also include other items such as flower bouquets, candles, wedding favors, and a centerpiece.
It is important to choose a color scheme for your wedding reception tables. For a cohesive, pulled-together look, consider going with a two-color palate. Choose a color to use as your main background color and add splashes of the second color for a refined look. Make sure the colors do not clash, such as using red and orange or shades that are too close together.
Many brides struggle with choosing a centerpiece for their table, as is it a very important part of the table décor. Frequently, a centerpiece consists of the bride’s favorite flowers in a large basket or beautiful vase. Another option is a candle opera or bowl of water with floating candles and rose petals. Your taste should lead you to the right choice for you.
Classically, white tablecloths are ideal for a wedding reception. Nearly all colors look good against white, and it is a formal choice. However, you may want to go with your own colors and add splashes of white against a bolder background. White napkins, dishes, bowls, or baskets are all great choices for adding white to your reception tables.
Some elaborate wedding receptions feature fishbowls filled with beautiful coral, colored rocks, and exotic fish in them. This is a somewhat costly option, but adds tons of character to otherwise empty space on your tables.
Your guests will likely sit at their tables for a hour or more, and what better place for your wedding favors to be? Depending on your theme, you could have several wedding favors on the tables. Many couples choose popular wedding favors such as finely wrapped almond bags, champagne glasses filled with chocolates, or a variety of homemade wedding favors. Wedding favors are a wonderful way to thank your family, friends, co-workers, and extended family for attending the most important day of your life.
