The settings you place on your reception tables will play a big part in establishing the look and theme for your wedding. With the right settings in place, you can communicate clearly that your celebration is a formal one, or let everyone know that you want them to relax and have fun at a more casual gathering. What can be tricky is figuring out how to showcase your style while still putting out necessary tools, as you need your settings to function well and look lovely. You also need to think about how the different pieces at the table work with your centerpieces, which tend to dominate these spaces.

Make Sure Your Tables Suit Your Wedding Theme

Texas Old Town venues work well for formal wedding events, and they can also serve as lovely spaces for more casual affairs. Whatever theme you choose, it is important to stay consistent with it. You should have a theme in mind when you pick the table settings. While silverware and flatware are functional, the right flourishes can help you sustain the right atmosphere during the reception. Little additions can go a long way in doing this. For example, mason jars have proven popular for couples who want to provide a rustic look for their celebration!

Designing A Centerpiece For Your Tables

The centerpiece can be the most important part of your table decorations. They can be visually striking, and they tend to be large enough to stand out even from a distance. Floral arrangements can give you the opportunity to showcase your wedding colors with these pieces, something that you should do whether your event is formal or casual. While it can be tempting to do something larger or more elaborate, be careful about creating something that takes up too much space. An especially large centerpiece can become expensive as you produce one for each table, and it can interfere with conversation.

Creating A Special Look For Your Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table gives you a special space to share with your partner during the reception. Because this table hosts the two most important guests at the wedding, it is typically given more elaborate decorations. If you want this table to stand out, but fear too many pieces will make it cluttered and awkward, you can set up a special backdrop to help it stand apart!
