      One of the truly fun parts of your wedding planning prep is deciding your wedding decor. The kind of wedding table decorations you opt for also matters- from wedding centrepieces to table runners and everything in between, as it lets you showcase your wedding theme, colour palette, and also creativity.

      If you are on a tight budget, then inexpensive wedding table decorations are what you need, to bring your event space to life, whereas if you can splurge, then decor like flowers, and candles can add that perfect finishing touches to your tablescape. 

      Since all your guests spend a significant portion of your wedding seated at their table, you need to put in as much effort as you need for the rest of your decor, to deck up your tables.

      Consider introducing accent and complementary shades to your palette, and also adding interest, height, light, and scent to your tablescape.

      Besides that, here are some wedding table decoration ideas to spruce up your wedding tablescapes:

      Wedding Centrepieces

      Placing centrepieces is one of the easiest ways to instantly add interest and vibrancy to your wedding tables. Try alternating centrepieces of different heights to provide a visual appeal, such as tall and short centrepieces.

      Here are a few wedding centrepiece ideas that you will love!

      1. Candle Centrepieces

      Create various levels of candles in jars or lanterns for a modern, warm look, that will be absolutely great with an abundance of green foliage and metallics.

      You need to find out whether candles are allowed at your venue or not, otherwise, opt for LED candles. But candle centrepieces make for a glamorous yet contemporary display.

      2. Rustic Wedding Centrepieces

      The wooden log doubles as a decorative element and a base for flowers & foliage, which will look exquisite on a tablescape. This low-key staple imparts a laid-back feel to your tables and brings a rustic motif to an elegant venue.

      In fact, they are a significant element of wedding decor versatility. If you fancy tying the knot in a rustic setting but prefer a formal celebration, then rustic wedding centrepieces can be your best bet.

      3. Birdcage Wedding Centrepieces

      Yet another attention-grabbing wedding table decoration idea is a birdcage filled with flowers, foliage, and candles, set atop your tablescapes.

      In fact, making the most of birdcages has recently turned out to be a major decor trend. White birdcages best suit a bunch of flowers such as gypsophila around the base, whereas metallic cages work well with some peculiar touches.

      4. Bottle Centrepieces

      Bottles, or better- mason jars or vases filled with exotic flowers are exquisite as wedding table centrepieces.

      To turn those attention-grabbing centrepieces into a much more dramatic centrepiece, stack some books and then let the bottle centrepiece grab all the attention or a wooden box, work equally as well, all on their own. Finish the look by placing one or two blooms in each bottle.

      5. Crystal Wedding Centrepieces

      Ideal to steal the show as standalone pieces, crystal wedding centrepieces will take the grandeur of your venue to the next level.

      They’re the primary staple, not just for weddings, but for other occasions as well. When paired with fancy lights, they are a sight to behold. When placed atop your tablescape, they instantly add a fanciful flair to any tablescape.

      A crystal stand adorned with pearls and blooms adds a regal, elegant touch to your tables. Deck it up with garlands, white roses, and foliage underneath and they’ll enhance the sparkling effect of the chandeliers above.

      6. Lanterns

      From wooden and up-cycled ones to vintage or intricate ones, lanterns turned out to be a popular choice for weddings. You can choose to deck them up with flowers that spill onto the table or flickering candles inside, either alone or in a group.

      Using them is also a moderately priced way to create a style statement over the tables. They add a vintage touch and make a very prominent statement in a room.

      Build them in varying heights to enhance your table’s aesthetic appeal.

      7. Glass Votives

      Glass votives with flickering candles(either single or in a group) are a staple wedding table decoration. But there are innumerable ways to breathe life into this design.

      You can either add a floating candle at the top, which imitates the opening’s width, or just fill the votive with water. Or you can fill them with sand and top with foliage.

      Indeed, adorning your tables with glass votives is a great way to make a statement without spending a fortune.

      8. Flowering Branches

      If you just love the look of tall wedding table decorations, then artfully placed beautiful branches won’t cost a fortune, yet still be very cost-effective. Flowering branches, such as apple or cherry blossoms can be ideal.

      You can also be more creative with them, by hanging candle holders from the ends of the branches or accenting the vases with fresh blooms. Or you can arrange candles just aside from the branch to complete the look.

      But make sure that the vases are tall and sturdy to support the weight of the flowering branches.

      2. Floral Table Decorations 

      Floral table decorations instantly add elegance and grandeur to your wedding tables, but you don’t necessarily need one big display. You can transform the tables, merely with subtle flower and foliage additions. Floral table arrangements are one of the most traditional centrepieces.

      No matter if the floral table decorations are narrow, wide, short, or tall, flowers in the midst of a tablescape merely say “wedding.”

      9. Tall Floral Centrepieces

      Since it’s adaptable to every season, tall floral centrepieces work extremely well year around. You can save money and at the same time, if there is sufficient time to move them over, simply re-use them for your reception too!

      If you’re all set to host a luxe affair, then certainly tall floral centrepieces can be your best bet, they will truly set the vibe for your big day and add a fabulous dimension to your decor. Tall floral centrepieces work well in venues with high ceilings.

      They are unobtrusive, which keeps the conversation going.

      10. Hanging Flower Installation

      For something truly unique, a floral installation above the tables creates interest, scent, and texture. Think orchids, if you have the budget, or just stick to faux flowers, as a better alternative and also they can easily be hired. They can be outfitted with vivid blooms and lush greenery.

      Basically, a hanging flower installation is a mini version of a ceremonial arch in terms of its looks. Imagine how your guests feel, when they look up, whereby they will see cascading roses, jasmine, or other blooms.

      This wedding table decoration idea works equally well in marquees as well, especially when couples want to conceal the ceiling and rafters.

      11. Go Minimal

      Rather than some larger flower arrangements, give your tables a simple and sleek look with a small floral arrangement and add votive candles. If your personal style is minimalist and elegant, then the minimal wedding table decoration can be your best bet.

      Simple, yet charming, simple wedding table decorations mean minimal usage of blooms, foliage, candles, and rest decor elements, which makes them look much more graceful. Minimal wedding table decorations don’t block guests from talking to each other from both sides of the table.

      But make sure that you choose blooms wisely since they need to stand out, given they are limited in number.

      12. Garlands with Blooms

      Have long tables? Then make it seem as though the blooms are growing from the tables themselves, just by simply stacking a winding string of blooms and foliage that runs down the entire length of your table.

      Whereas if you have a round seating arrangement, then simply hire a cluster of your favourite flowers and then stack them in a mound in order to form a median focus on each table.

      Adding garlands also imparts a lush look to your tables, without costing as much as a cluster of flowers. And if you’re someone who loves to introduce blooms to your table decor, then go ahead and hire some!

      13. Floral Extravaganza

      Have a penchant for blooms and flower decor? Then an extravagant floral arrangement is what you need to impart your venue a magnificent look. For a sophisticated look, choose to have just one colour, and type of flower across the decor.

      Enhance the charm of an already exquisite wedding venue, with floral extravaganza. They do not just guarantee luxury, but the benefit with them is that you can also use them for your wedding reception as well.

      14. Ceiling Suspended Table Centrepieces

      If you don’t wish to clutter the tablescape, then go the other way around, and choose ceiling danglers.

      Making a canopy of blooms (or lights) and hanging them down from the ceiling above the wedding table is a great wedding table decoration idea!

      3. Table Runners 

      Table runners are one of the great ways to add another textural element to your plain tables and jazz up a pristine white tablecloth. Runners also act as the perfect backdrop for your wedding centrepieces.

      15. Lace and Crochet Table Runners

      If you’re after rustic table runners, then crochet, lace, or even jute can be your best bet. For a boho touch, top them off with jars holding flowers. Lace ones can easily be paired with the rest of almost all decor.

      They are a versatile choice for your nuptials and accommodate the feel of your wedding without being overwhelming.

      Lace and Crochet Table Runners

      16. Silk and Linen Table Runners

      Some fabrics can seamlessly add interest to a table, such as linen, silk, and chiffon. You can either let them run off even at the end of a table or lay them out in the exact length you need.

      Silk and Linen Table Runners

      17. Fresh Flower Table Runners

      Even though silk, linen, crochet, and lace are strong entrants for table runners, why not take up the trend of the previous year- fresh flower table runners?

      When you consider table runners, it doesn’t necessarily have to be made of fabric. Imagine how stunning your tables look when decked up with floral table runners with a wooden table underneath.

      The runner, composed of bold rose and foliage, can be accentuated with candles or tea lights held in transparent jars or metallic holders.

      Choose the best one to match both the theme and style of your wedding and deftly swathe them over your tablescape for a professional display.

      4. Table Cloths 

      Either your venue or caterers offer you wedding tablecloths that can act as a blank canvas to adorn. Tablecloths have a significant role to play in the overall design of your wedding. They set the tone of a table, and also make an event space conform to the vision of your wedding.

      The right tablecloth contributes well to your wedding theme, acts as the perfect backdrop for centrepieces, and the rest of the table decor, and also helps create a cohesive look. Elements like candles and tablecloths can be used to make your wedding flowers stand out individually and they seamlessly complement the blooms.

      18. White Tablecloths

      They’re something that adds flair and distinction to your tablescapes. They also give a more casual feel to your event space. The white tablecloths are one of the most sought-after choices for weddings.

      When using tablecloths, complete the look with ribbons, layered cloth napkins, or streamers to add colour to it, or to create a central runner.

      To create a much greater visual impact, you can swathe the cloth over the edges of your tables. To add textural elements to your tablescape, prefer lace or patterned tablecloths.

      White Tablecloths

      19. Black Tablecloths

      Black tablecloths add a little drama to your decor. There’s something atypical about this colour, and black tablecloths that make them unique.

      They also enhance the style quotient of your event space. Swathing black tablecloths also nicely set off the colour scheme and at the same time, you can decide on the rest of the wedding decor based on black.

      Also, the colour black is a very dramatic colour that breaks away from the conventional colours such as white, cream, and other bold colours. If you are after something regal, dramatic and unconventional, then black tablecloths can be your best bet.

      5. Glassware 

      20. Colourful Glassware

      Don’t stop with centrepieces or table runners. Lying out some colourful glassware to your tables, such as ones in green or blue, carry out the colour scheme over the space. They will simply make your tablescape pop in an instant with colour!

      You can either pick a single shade for a uniform verve of colour all over your tablescape or stick to various tones for an eclectic vibe.

      The mix and match of glassware can also make each setting extra special.

      21. Gold Colour Schemes

      31. Table Lamps 

      Perhaps one of the best ways to create an illusion of more height on your tablescape is by simply using table lamps.
