This wedding features soft colors like peach and mint, but has a strong focus on gold and sparkles. The flowers are minimal to keep the decor from overwhelming the eyes. See the rest of this New Year’s Eve wedding (planned in only eight weeks) here on Style Me Pretty.

These flower centerpieces are showstoppers! A long row of these arrangements bring a romantic touch to any long table. Set them on a burlap table runner for a rustic or vintage wedding. Flowers by Soiree Floral.

Can a beautiful table arrangement also be practical? Absolutely! Check out this head table arrangement by Salt Harbor Designs. This kind of box on the head table allows the bride and her bridesmaids a place to set their bouquets during the reception. Not only does it keep the bouquets from getting smashed or lost, it gives plenty of color to the table of the bridal party.  See the rest of this Chic Modern Wedding in Wilmington, NC on the Knot.

If soft colors are more your thing, this sweetheart table features a pop of pastel with peach draping on the table and backdrop. Flowers in white and the chandelier hanging high over the table give a feeling of glamor.

Formal Accent

This beautiful wedding uses peaches, greens, and golds to highlight a more formal feel to the table setting. The more silverware used on a table, the more formal it will feel, given that it is placed correctly. Of course, only place silverware that will be used during the meal- a fish fork and knife don’t need to be on the table if you’re serving roast beef and vegetables. See the traditional formal table setting guide here. Add a crisply folded napkin and simple menu instead of a consomme and salad plate if not serving either of those courses.

Your styled table can still look fabulous even if it’s not quite so formal. A vintage table that looks this great shouldn’t be covered up! A lace table runner, romantic flowers, candles, and a simple place setting blend formal and informal here. Instead of a china charger, a paper circle serves as a place mat and menu with a napkin tucked underneath. Place settings include a water goblet, wine glass, salad and meat forks, and a knife and spoon. You can find photos of the rest of this Nashville wedding reception here.

With all of these reception tables, the colors are light, airy, and romantic. Guests will get the feeling of simple glamor and comfort. Even if this theme isn’t what you’re looking for to decorate your wedding, take the inspiration you love and pick out your favorite part. Chances are, you’ll be able to incorporate those elements into your wedding and make it your own.
