The mind must reel when it comes to figuring out what you’d like to do for your wedding reception. Round tables? Long tables? How about no tables at all? What about seating? Metal chairs? Wooden? And don’t even get us started on lighting and florals! The options are positively endless, which is why we’ve rounded up 20 of our fave table styling ideas to set you off in the right direction.
Whether you’re styling an intimate table at your local casual dining establishment (like the above with epic floating florals from Melbourne faves Good Grace & Humour) or a hosting a huge sitdown wedding for a 100 of your nearest and dearest (like the gorgeous set up immediately below at one of our fave Tweed Hinterland wedding venues, the barn at Summergrove Estate) we have something here for everyone. How great are those hanging festoon lights by the way!
Further below you’ll also find candlelight inspiration, neon signs, teepee styling ideas and intimate lunchtime setups for a dozen of your fave humans (complete with custom made matchboxes for favours). But the good ideas don’t end there. Check out the bums on the sand approach to reception seating further down along with the epic industrial styling ideas second from the bottom (with florals to boot by Pomp & Splendour) and, last but not least, right at the bottom there, the amazing fabric installation by Nomad Styling, who also happens to be one of our Top 20 Wedding Stylists to Follow on Instagram.
Once you’re done here (no doubt pinning to your heart’s content) it will be time to turn your focus to finding your dream venue, which will only help you refine your styling ideas for your day of good times. Lucky for you we’ve rounded up 15 of our fave country venues for you right here. Not looking to say ‘I do’ in a rural area? Then check out our Top 15 Urban, Heritage or Coastal venues.
