These beautiful creations are a huge part of the reception décor for your wedding. While your guests may only be at your ceremony from 10 to 30 minutes, and the cocktail for about an hour, they may spend four hours or more at the reception! Spend some time thinking about how you would like to decorate the guest tables. The traditional wedding table decor consist of candles, flowers or some combination of. It used to be that weddings were always light, airy colored affairs with equally light, airy table pieces. While still well loved today, you now have many more options. And you also have choices beyond flowers and candles.

Unique Ideas

Over the years, people have done many types of unique displays. Anything can be a decoration if presented attractively enough. Candy, photos, potted plants, fruit, nuts, individual wedding cakes, holiday evergreens, feathers, grass, Christmas ornaments, tree branches, birds nests, clusters of wheat, vegetables, paper creations, sea shells, colored sands, individual little Christmas trees, bridesmaids bouquets, gift boxes, coral, fall leaves, cow boy boots (yes, you read right), crystals, boas, pine cones, figurines, wine bottles, mason jars, Styrofoam, plastic bugs, books….you name it. A table adornment can or has been made out of it!

 

Traditional Costs
