Not all of us have been taught the fine art of table-setting etiquette or excel in floral design. We also fully understand the stresses and feeling of sudden panic that we haven’t done the right thing or chosen the best stationary font for your big day but fortunately, innovative and cost-effective design ideas are everywhere.
So to focus on trends, and not that we are at all opposed to tradition, we hope to highlight some fun, new and off-centre ways to arrange cutlery, florals and stationary to give you some fresh ideas for your 'inspired table'.
Have a look below at some of our top trends of the moment:
The perfect ‘pop of colour’
The right mix of style and simplicity is the cornerstone of fabulous wedding florals. Fresh flowers that feature the seasons best finds and are locally sourced always come out tops. Gone are the days of all white décor, replaced by a season of colour- everything bright and bold. Singular striking floral pieces can be used as exclamation points strewn across tables and all tables need not look the same, you can opt to mix up your floral décor and table sequencing which promises a stunning effect for your photography.
A huge wedding trend that couples are increasingly searching for are ways to incorporate “the destination wedding' element. Literally meaning you incorporate the places, towns and cities that hold special memories to you, into your wedding day in the form of stationary and décor. So, instead of using the standard old table numbers, perhaps name your tables after the places you love, be it the first place you met, the first place you kissed, where he proposed- its a special way of personalising your big day and bringing the 'destination wedding' right to you.
‘All tied up'
A simple and profoundly popular trend that can really add to the look and feel of your table layout, is tied-up cutlery. Offering the perfect chance to add another décor element to your setting- a pretty ribbon or patterned fabric that matches your wedding colour palette, is a simple and cost effective way to add to the 'wow' of your wedding table.
