Designing a Rebellious Wedding Tablescape / by Jenny Chang

Your wedding tablescape is the most enthralling aspect of your reception. From the flower arrangements to the place settings and even to the linens, every detail must be pristine, elegant, and totally badass. A ROCKNEVENTS wedding planner listens to your vision and captures it beyond your expectations. Each table should speak volumes to the couple’s personality and style. This is the spot your guests will spend most of their time, so let’s make it worth their while.

Table Shape

In order to pull off an edgy yet luxurious table design, you need to select the perfect table shape. There is an abundance of options to choose from: long and rectangular, short and square, wide and round. The option you choose should compliment the format of the venue and keep event flow in order. Keep in mind what elements are must-haves for your vision and make sure the table shape you select will coordinate with that.

Dressing the Table

Linens are perhaps the most subtle aspect of your table’s design, but still one of the most important. The textile, color, and shape all play a role in the foundation of your vision. When dressing the tables, select a color and texture that provides a sleek and sophisticated background for all of the other elements. Our go-to colors: neutrals like white, cream, blush, and grays.

Floral Arrangements

Floral arrangements are the most versatile design element of your tablescape. From low to high or diverse and simple, floral arrangements guide the eye of each guest towards the tables. Think of florals as the eye-candy of the tablescape. Each client has a unique perception and style. Depending on the shape of the table and the vibe the client desires, we curate a specific design that plays off of that vision.

A long-rectangular table calls for something simple, yet ornate. Wooden tables, cream linen table runners, and greenery flowing down the ends of the table will always be timeless.

Place Settings

The key to a rebellious wedding tablescape is layering diverse textures. When it comes to place settings, mix textures between the serving plates, glassware, and flatware. Whether you’re into rustic or opulent, every place setting should be sophisticated with a little bit of edge. White plates, gold flatware, and classic glassware are both glamorous and inventive.

Light it up

If you feel like something is missing from your tablescape, add some candles. The glimmer of light is functional, romantic and adds an unparalleled ambiance. If you’re going for an organic, natural wedding scatter trinket vases around the table. If you desire a palatial, over-the-top wedding, square candle vases add a certain sense of luxury and modern flare.
