So many times we see brides and grooms putting so much effort into the design of their dining tables for the wedding reception. From the flowers, to the menu cards, and the linens, every detail is planned out. But sometimes, brides and grooms are so focused on what their guest’s tables will look like, that they forget about decorating their own!
Adding some gorgeous details to your sweetheart or head table is so easy! We wanted to share some of our favorite ways to spice up your table.
Everyone loves to add gorgeous blooms to their ceremony site, but after the ceremony is over, don’t let those flowers go to waste! Make use of your ceremony flowers to add some color to your head table.
The gazebo spray can be easily removed, and added to the center of your sweetheart or head
table. Ask your florist how large your gazebo spray will be, you don’t want it taking over your head table!
We love this gorgeous example from The Flower House.
If you have a garland on your gazebo, ask your florist if it is possible to make it in one piece. After the ceremony, your garland can be laid across your head table for a gorgeous look.
Ask your coordinator how long your head table will be, and arrange with your florist to have your garland be roughly the same length.
Let’s face it, no matter what, the day of your wedding, all eyes are going to be on you! There’s no better way to highlight your table, than to add a gorgeous back drop! Not only do backdrops add amazing detail and texture to the reception room, they also look amazing in photos! Check out these examples of beautiful drapes and backdrops!
"Elliston is beautiful, we are so lucky to have gotten married here! Madeline was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing - she always answered all my emails right away and she was quick and very helpful with decorating tips and ideas. Our ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect. We had buffet for our guests and the food was delicious. The filet mignon was juicy, salmon perfect and chicken very tender. Thank you Madeline for giving us a perfect day!" - Elizabeth & Rafael - May 27, 2016
