If you really want to up your wedding style stakes then take a closer look at your table decor – an area which is sadly dismissed by so many couples. I’m not just talking about having beautiful centrepieces, I’m talking about using a range of different styles of tableware and incorporating this into the theme of the day.
Here’s some style inspiration on how to make your tableware stand out:
When it comes to the cutlery, think about the base colour of your centrepieces. If you’ve opted for gold for example, then use golden-based cutlery to compliment your theme. If you’re a little more daring when it comes to your decor then don’t be afraid to select patterned cutlery. When used correctly it can enhance the style quotient of any room.
Again with your crockery, dare to be different. Whether you desire texture or colour, let your crockery do all the hard work. Whatever your theme; modern and contemporary or something more vintage or whimsical, the right style of plates, cups and saucers will all help bring out a sense of sophisticated glamour to your table.
If there’s one element that will make a big difference with very little effort, then it’s through your chosen glassware. You can be creative and have lots of fun by using different coloured items and incorporate alternative shapes and heights too. Remember to also think about the type of glassware you’ll be using to serve your arrival drinks. Use your theme to determine the style. For instance, if you are looking to host a 20s-themed night, opt for champagne saucers instead of standard flutes.
If you want to keep things more traditional with standard items, then charger plates are a simple way to add more depth to your set up. Your choices are endless as they come in all colours, shapes, patterns and sizes. Also think about your table linen. Coloured napkins with individually printed menus sitting on top look so stylish!
