When everything about weddings in 2020 is still so up in the air, it’s definitely difficult to envision a rockin’ reception with more than 100, 50, 20, even 10 people gathered at once. Elopements and Zoom weddings are certainly making the couple-only and watching-from-afar weddings a lot more mainstream, and we are so here for it (don’t get us wrong!), but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t miss weddings galore with guests. One day we’ll have those back, it’ll just take some and until then!
So, while we wait, we figured we’d take a look at some of the prettiest table decor out there – and give our brides and grooms some great options to ‘get the look’ with our own Style Me Pretty reception collection. Whether you’ll be celebrating with a bright al fresco fete, beneath a gorgeous sailcloth tent, a rustic reception set in the most stunning, vaulted-ceiling barn with wood accents aplenty, or a black-tie evening at a private estate, complete with a black-and-white color palette and modern, striking metallics, you can make sure your guests find their tables and take their seats as stylishly as possible!
Trends you can’t go wrong with.
If you haven’t already guessed by peeping our SMP real weddings on the regular, we love a creative, out-of-the-box escort card display or expertly-curated seating chart. We can’t help but give major props to our couples and their planners for dreaming up to-die-for looks to welcome guests to the party. That being said, classic place cards will always have a place in our hearts, because they can fit any and every kind of wedding affair: 100 percent formality chameleons.
The same goes for table numbers. With flowers, greenery, festive tableware, and flutes to toast with, the table number doesn’t have to be too peacocky – in fact, the more simple the designs/holders/silhouettes can be, the better, as they’ll need to harmonize with the rest of the table tempo: the colors, the textures, the wares, etc.
These looks will always get a standing ovation (see what we did there ).
