As your wedding date approaches, chances are that you have the fine details locked into place. From the venue and catering to the guest list, all of the various aspects of a wedding are essential for making it a successful day. For a unique, sophisticated and dramatic look at your reception, it’s also key to focus on centrepieces.
Luckily for you, Ethereal Creators has a few tips which will help you perfect your wedding decor and transform the venue into the ultimate customized, fairy-tale setting.
To make your wedding festivities truly sensational, you’ll want to focus on luminescence and elegance. Turn to bright elements which reflect light to create a warm, glowing appearance. After all, centrepieces are meant to depict celebration and joy, and should pay homage to the newlywed couple. Whether your personal tastes are classic or contemporary, there’s always a decorative solution to make the centre of your table the centre of attention!
Classic & Chic
For those looking to evoke timeless elegance and sophistication, classic centrepieces are an antidote to over-the-top trends. If you are aiming for refined and classic style, we suggest fine china, high-end linens and a lighter, delicate colour palette. This particular decorative style is perfect for traditional venues, such as ballrooms and country clubs.
If you love historical romance stories and want to incorporate this aesthetic into your wedding decor, classic design just may be the way to go. For a finishing touch, try incorporating understated vases, and bridal flowers such as roses, tulips, hydrangeas and baby’s breath.
Modern & Structured
If you like contemporary design and structured lines, it’s possible to incorporate these elements into your decor. Try complementing your design with flowers, for a hint of whimsy and romance for the big day. Meanwhile, lush greenery and branches create an “au naturel” feel, while square and rectangular centrepieces offer inspiration from architectural shapes and silhouettes.
Whether you want to include a few family heirlooms into your design scheme, or you simply have a passion for antiques, vintage vibes also help to create a gorgeous space. Art decor elements and homemade centrepieces can also transport your modern-day venue to an era from bygone days. To achieve a look, try sticking to muted colours, antique props like books, milk bottles or clocks. Meanwhile, footed trays, low centrepieces and compote bowls wrap up the effect.
For all the country gals and country boys who are planning an outdoor wedding, rustic charm could be just what you need to complete the fresh air and wide-open spaces of your countryside estate, farm or ranch destination. Decorate your venue with seasonal flowers, for a touch of bold colour. Meanwhile, loosely structured shapes, thistles and raspberries, wooden containers or wicker baskets also impart a feeling of countryside charisma. Mixed textures are key, as a country wedding is marked by a down-to-earth feeling and atmosphere.
For the couples who enjoy the spotlight and want to make a statement, high glamour decor might be the trick. If your chosen venue happens to be very simple, then turning up the glam factor in the form of eye-catching centrepieces might be a wise choice. To truly seize this aesthetic, adorn the space with large, ornate pieces, a bright floral arrangement and shimmering crystals.
While the focus may be on the beautiful flowers and the blushing bride, tables also play a major role in the overall appearance and feel of your decor. Whether your table of choice is round, square or rectangular, this will certainly affect the way your centrepieces are presented. Square tables offer a great deal of space, which allows for multiple centrepieces to be arranged. On the other hand, round tables only offer space for a single centrepiece, which should be the focal point. If you go with rectangular, this table shape can accommodate many guests- and therefore deserves more elaborate centrepieces which should be arranged in the centre.
