Many couples end up hunting for tips to transform their wedding reception tables when they’ve done all they can do decor wise but still feel something is missing. Even when you work with a professional wedding coordinator, you can end up feeling dissatisfied with the outcome of your table decor choices at the last minute. Whatever reason you’re running into a decor road block, there are some tips you can use to help transform your wedding reception tables from drab to fabulous, and many of them are simple to implement.
Use the following tips for transforming your wedding reception tables from boring to all that and a bag of chips!
Make your place settings personal—Here’s a fun way to enhance your reception tables and give them a unique spin. Try making your place settings personal. Do this by using photo place card holders with different photos of you and your partner in each one, or have your napkin rings or linens customized with a special message or symbol of some sort. Whatever you do, use your place settings to enhance the look of your tables by making them unique to your theme and your personality.
Enhance with unique favors—Another way to kick up the look of your reception tables a notch is to pick out wedding favors that also act as decor pieces. While most wedding favors double as decor pieces, some are more decorative than others and have the power to accentuate the reception’s theme much better than others. Some are so unique that they can even take your table decor from okay to excellent. Consider key chains, candles, and bagged or boxed edible favors that complement your theme, whether it’s music, art, or a cultural theme.
Rethink your centerpieces—One of the most obvious yet important ways to transform your wedding reception tables is to rethink your centerpieces. Your centerpieces are the first thing your guests will notice when they enter the room and spot your tables. If you had to choose small flower arrangements due to budget, consider adding candles or other decorative pieces around the arrangements to add a little extra something to the tables. If you can afford to add more flowers or have a unique, abstract arrangement put in place, these changes will also help transform your wedding reception tables from drab to fabulous.
