Wedding Table Decoration Ideas for 2022

While browsing Pinterest boards and bridal magazines for floral inspiration can be fun, sometimes the sheer number of wedding table decoration flowers ideas can also be somewhat daunting. So, to help, here is a guide to choosing your wedding table arrangements.

Ideas for Your Wedding Table Decorations

Wedding Table Checklist

The items on your wedding table should be in keeping with the overall theme and colour scheme of the rest of your wedding. What do you put on a wedding table? Here are a few ideas. You don’t have to include all of them, but as a general rule you can have:

  1. Table linen
  2. Table numbers
  3. Candles
  4. Place cards
  5. Glassware
  6. Serviettes 

In the process of preparing all this, you might also be asking “how can I make my wedding table look full?” Once the wedding lunch or dinner is served, sparseness might not be an issue, but if you want to add some colour and beauty to your wedding table, flower arrangements are a great place to start. How do you decorate a reception table using flowers?

Floral Centrepieces

Your flowers should match the theme and colour scheme. There are five main types of floral wedding centrepieces:

  1. Small - Dainty arrangements such as bud vases
  2. Large - Extravagant-looking creations
  3. Low  - Shorter stems sitting lower down to the table, or a garland runner
  4. Tall - Long stemmed arrangements often placed in tall vases
  5. Overhead - Unconventionally pretty arrangements suspended from above

If you are looking for wedding centrepiece ideas for round tables, a good idea is to choose something impactful, but unobtrusive so that your guests don’t have to lean around it to have a conversation. In this case, lower, smaller or overhead arrangements are generally best.

Find Inspiration

Some simple wedding reception table decorations ideas might include pretty glassware to display single stems in, or fairy lights trailed around a garland centrepiece. Choose flowers that fit with the overall theme, such as exotic greenery, or delicate, traditional blooms like peonies and roses for a more romantic look.

Other ideas for floral wedding centrepieces focus on the use of texture and colour. Trends for 2022 range from bold brights paired with pastels to heavily textured arrangements featuring dried flowers as well as dramatic designs.

Accent With Objects

When it comes to wedding table decorations flowers are not your only option. Depending on your theme, you can use other items to accentuate your floral arrangements, such as vintage books or ornaments. You may be wondering what can be used as a table centrepiece, and the answer is anything: and you can make it as traditional or as eclectic as you like.

If you are on a budget, you can even make your own wedding table decorations: for a rustic wedding, combine woody elements with hand-tied blooms. Alternatively, if you prefer something a little more glam, keep any ornamental glassware clean, chic and simple and (if desired) accent it using gold or silver glass paint.
