Wedding Table Settings, Table Linens & More

Finding the perfect wedding table setting can be difficult, especially if it is only a few days before the wedding.  With all the things that you have to plan, it is not too surprising that many people struggle to find the perfect wedding table settings for their reception or rehearsal dinner.  Even if it is only a few days before your wedding, you still have time to get your wedding tables looking perfect before the big day.

Wedding Table Decorations

With your wedding only being a few days away, it is not too surprising that you are quickly changing your mind about how you want your wedding tables to look.   Since this seems so minor in the grand scheme of things, many couples seem to leave the table itself to the last minute, or depend on their wedding venue to decorate the tables for them.  Nothing can be more shocking; however, than finding out at the last minute that you don’t like their wedding table decorations, or worse, they won’t do it at all.

Luckily, you still have some time to make everything look perfect before the big day.  The big thing to remember is that sometimes simplicity means elegance.  To make your wedding table look perfect in a rush, you will need:

  • Tablecloths
  • Cloth Napkins
  • Ribbon
  • Silverware

If you do not have a centerpiece already, you may want to add this as well, but most couples hire their florists ahead of time to create centerpieces for their tables.

Beautiful Table Linens

Most wedding venues will have white table clothes provided, but many couples learn once seeing these clothes on the table that they just don’t look right with their theme.  Instead of going with general white wedding table linens, go with floral table cloths or table cloths that go with your color scheme.  This will give a beautiful, elegant look that will impress your guests.

While the table cloth may be the most important part of your wedding table settings, also realize that your guests will take notice of how you present the silverware and cloth napkins.  If you need to create something elegant fast, wrap the silverware in a cloth napkin, and tie it neatly with a colored ribbon.  This will look beautiful alongside your other place settings.

Wedding Table Setting: The Final Touches

Sometimes, your table still seems like it is missing something.  A great way to add some extra spark to your wedding table settings is by adding origami animals or party favors to the table.  If laid out properly, it will look beautiful and welcoming to your guests.   Many couples decide to find elegant looking bubbles to place at the settings, some of these shaped as wine bottles or other wedding themed items.

Once you have finished, step back and look at your place setting.  After a bit of positioning, you can impress your guests and be happy with your wedding table settings.
