We are firm believers that the gorgeous little touches you put into your big day can really set your wedding apart, and beautifully set tables at your wedding breakfast are one detail guaranteed to wow your guests. They are also a really effective way of transforming your venue and complementing your overall theme.
If you are having a marquee you can have loads of fun designing the look for your tables from scratch. If you are hiring a venue, then why not ask to see their standard table settings, and see how you might personalise them. Most venues don't mind.
We asked experts 'Well Dressed Tables’ based in South Wimbledon to explain how to choose the perfect setting for your wedding.
Here’s what they say...
“It’s really important to consider the overall look that you are trying to achieve. Do you want to make a statement? Are you going for subtle elegance? Do you want a contemporary look, or is traditional more your thing?
A really good way of dramatising your table is with the glassware, whether it’s with a burst of colour or a unique design.
Another way to create an impact is with a charger plate which you can tie in to your colour scheme. You can choose from a variety of designs, whether it’s clear with a gold rim, a funky purple or an obscure shape.
When it comes to your table settings, we’d always advocate being brave! Try to steer away from the ordinary - your guests have seen a classic setting before!”
There’s a whole world of contemporary and traditional cutlery, crockery, and glassware out there. Go discover!
