Showstopping Wedding Centrepieces

There’s nothing quite like that moment when you walk into your wedding reception ahead of your guests and get that first look at your tables.

It can be a really breath-taking moment, to see all your ideas and creativity come to life across the room.

When thinking about what sort of centrepieces to go with, it’s best to sit down and try and think about a design or theme that will suit your personality as a couple. Ask yourself the following questions; what look are you going for? Elegant, traditional, rustic, vintage, casual, modern, minimalist? Do you want to bring your combined passions and interest into your décor, such as movies, books, travel, comic books, gardening, sports etc?

Even if you don’t want to go for overly elaborate centrepieces, you can still achieve a showstopping effect with small but carefully chosen details.

Here’s some ideas to get the creative juices going. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

                                     

 

Rustic

Just because something is rustic, it doesn’t mean it can’t be showstopping and in terms of going for a rustic style of centrepieces, these can look really impactful without being overly tall. Think of wooden slices stacked with jars, candles or lanterns. Use wooden boxes, lanterns, plenty of burlap and lace and have fun with low lying blooms.

 

Modern

Very much cherry picking from the latest trends, modern can be anything from minimalist, to transparent, to hexagons, to chic shapes and on trend design features. Think of using something eye catching as your main feature on the table, be it a hexagonal lantern, a stunning oversized gold circle, hanging tea lights, light installations, transparent features etc.

 

Tall

If you want to make a strong visual impact, then go for tall table centrepieces that will immediately draw the eye of the guests upwards. Think about traditional combinations of tall candelabras and florals, but if you want to bring a freshness to your look why not consider something like blossom trees? Oversized branches, feather trees? Ferns? There is no limit other than your imagination and willingness to go big.

 

Elegant              

A classic, is named as such for a reason. It never goes out of style and has universal appeal. And when it comes to weddings, you shouldn’t fee you have to tack on to modern trends or styles. There is nothing wrong with going for a more traditional, elegant and timeless feel to your centrepieces. Think classic combinations of candles, candelabras, florals, with additions of silver and gold, crisp whites and lush greens.

 

Vintage

Vintage is a trend that is fast becoming a perennial one in terms of popularity. Again, it’s a theme that has universal appeal and is also great for those on a budget. You can go subtle with centrepieces such as vintage style jugs and flowers, or get creative and use vintage china tea pots and tea sets filled with flowers or on top of old books. Or you could go bigger with vintage finds from attics and auctions such as gramophones, typewriters, weighing scales and birdcages. The list is endless.

 

How To Create Ambience at Your Wedding Reception

No matter what venue you choose for your wedding reception, the key factor to making it look and feel special is to set the mood…

But what exactly does that mean?          

In reality, it’s all about creating an ambience by using simple additions and creative touches that can add so much depth of feeling to any space. No matter what size your venue is, lighting is key, so think of uplighters, fairylights and hanging tea lights, each of which will bring a different look and feel to the room without you having to go all out on a specific theme.

Candles are one of the simplest ways and there are plenty of ways to use them creatively.

But don’t forget additions like draping, which can completely transform the look of a room in an instant.

Here’s some ideas to get the creative juices going. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

Up Lighting and Gobo

Up lighters will give you a really stunning effect of for your wedding venue. They can bathe your room in a host of beautiful colours, from purples, to pinks, to lilac, corals, blues and more. Gobo is another really useful and eye catching lighting option, where you can have anything from the couples initials to the wedding date projected onto the wall of the venue.

 

Candles, Tea lights and Lanterns

If you don’t want to go down the route of uplighters and gobo, then one of the simplest ways to achieve a real sense of romantic ambiance is with candles. There are so many ways to use candles; don’t just think of using one size or type. Think tea lights dotted along entrances, a mix of lanterns on the floor or on tables. Elegant candelabras, pillar candles of different sizes. Have fun and don’t feel you have to stick with one over the other. Also hanging tea lights make for the dreamiest affect when the sun goes down and can be hung from a range of locations.

 

Fairylights

When you think of a romantic wedding ambience you think of fairylights. They are the ultimate classic look for wedding receptions and just because something is a classic, that doesn’t mean it’s not still stunning, on trend and relevant. Fairylights can be used in a variety of ways, from backdrops, to over balconies, vertically on windows and much more.

 

Draping

Another really simple touch is soft draping. It can be used in a variety of ways from the ceilings, to balconies, to entrances, on backdrops and even on your reception chairs. Used in conjunction with lighting options such as candles and uplighters, it’s amazing how much draping can completely soften and transform the look of any size of venue.

 

 

How To Do A Vintage Wedding Theme

 

The vintage wedding theme is still one of the most popular choices for couples these days. Its popularity remains strong, thanks to its adaptability, budget friendly ways and because it is still one of the most beautiful wedding themes to bring to life.

There are so many ways to channel a vintage theme. So many decades to focus on, that it can appeal to different personalities and couples. You can have just a few small vintage touches or you can go all out with larger statements of retro.  That’s the beauty of this theme.

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to interpreting the vintage theme. Raid attics, raid skips, to go auctions and embrace upcycling in a big way.

Here’s some ideas to get the creative juices going. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

 

Attire

One of the most stunning ways to set a vintage tone for your wedding day is with your attire. Brides are embracing retro and vintage styles of dresses, going for pretty detailing and classic cuts over more modern shapes. Don’t be afraid to bring it through to your bridesmaids too and let’s not forget the men! Retro and vintage suits are another big trend at the moment, so define the era you’re trying to emulate and stick with it. If you really want to make a splash, why not ask your guests to embrace the attire of your chosen era too, for extra fun.

 

Transport

One of the easiest ways to channel the vintage theme is with your wedding transport. Yes we’re talking about vintage cars. And you don’t necessarily have to go for the traditional types of cars either, such as a Rolls Royce. Why not have a little fun with VW Camper vans, mini coopers and even vintage motorbikes with side cars or push bikes?

 

On The Table

You can really go wild in terms of on the table vintage inspiration. Anything from stacks of old books, vintage birdcages filled with flowers, retro weighing scales topped with florals or candles, vintage cameras and old photos, retro style tins, pocket watches, old unusual bottles filled with candles, vintage sewing machines. The list is endless. Remember to dress them up with key florals and items made from burlap and lace are the ideal partners to reinforce that vintage look.

 

Around The Room

When it comes to placing vintage pieces around your wedding venue or ceremony, you can make a big impact for a small investment. Think about having stacks of retro suitcases, why not even use one for your guests to put their wedding cards? Vintage items like typewriters and gramophones make stunning focal points and again can cost next to nothing. You can make an even bigger impact with upcycled chests of drawers which you could use as your dessert or cake area too. And if you really want to go big and have the budget, why not seek out larger vintage pieces like a retro telephone box! It would look stunning in situ and can double as an ideal photobooth for your guests too.
