When you imagine the wedding of your dreams, every single detail is important... First, choose the venue “it has to be near the sea, have the best views, the best wedding banquet and all the sophistication that my wedding deserves”.
Next step, the dress: princess, empire, bohemian, mermaid, all great styles a every bride is unique, and as they say, “every bride is beautiful” and with the first steps taken care of, preparations then move on to the things that won’t be seen as much but without them you go from having the wedding of the year to a simple celebration and little else, a clear example is the wedding table decorations.
The decoration of the venue will be key to achieving a more than satisfactory experience for your guests. To explain to the reader, in the XXI century, the caliber of an event is measured by the number of photos that it generates and for this reason, your wedding table decorations are key. Most of the time, guests are seated, dining, chatting and enjoyng everything around them, so having something nice to look at will guarantee your first post on Instagram. Virality and smiles,the best combination!
But is a centrepiece enough? The answer is: it depends. It depends on the bride, the venue, the style or even the season. The trick lies in finding the best trends and choosing the one that best suits the stars of the day.
The best trends in wedding centrepieces
1 - For dexterous brides
Trying to oversee every last detail isn’t a bad thing. There is a type of bride which we call “dexterous” who are super creative and like to be a part of every aspect of their event. For these brides who are looking for their wedding table centrepieces, picking up the scissors and glue and getting down to business, isn’t work, its fun! If you are one of these brides, congratulations, it’s time to have fun! The first step is to choose pots and lacey ribbons and once you have the holder, you then begin with the contents. Enjoy creating your own centrepiece design that nobody will forget. Add flowers (a little tip, lavander looks beautiful in little pots) and all that’s left to do is to arrange them on the tables. Simple, but very effective.
2 - Holiday Brides
Every festival has a colour associated with it. As a rule, we overlook colours and this is a mistake because we can take advantage for our events. Table centrepieces should work in harmony with the wedding reception room’s decoration. Picture an Easter wedding i.e in springtime, pastel shades should predominate, so centrepieces would ideally have dusty pink or pale yellow flowers. A touch of subtle colour that denotes delicacy and harmony, not just with what you can see, but also with what you feel. With hotter temperatures, paler flowers will last longer and you will avoid a selfie during summer solstice with wilted flowers.
3 - Rustic Brides
You probably know an adventurous couple who decided to marry after a lifetime of experiences together. Weddings are like chocolates, everyone has their favourite.
Rustic decorations or outdoor wedding table decorations without a centrepiece but with a predominance of greens is certaintly one of the trends of the year. Opt for not using any support base and place green branches, leaves, pines, olive branches and any other flower (without abundance) on the table. Fill any spaces and transform the floral centrepiece in to a perfection. Success guaranteed!
4 - Practical Brides
Everyone likes plants and they have a long-lasting durabilty. Wedding flowers are a nicety but not a necessity. There are smaller budgets or wedding couples who prefer more practical elements for their wedding, decorative details that they can take home later without any problem and that also last much longer. For such couples, plants as decorative table centrepieces are the best choice. Small aromatic plants will give an amazing visual and fragrant touch and are better for taking home after the wedding reception.
5 - Brides that shine
Evening weddings are begining to take a back seat, but how can you shine on the darkest of nights? For couples who are a litlle daring, centrepieces with lights! They add light to your wedding table decorations and a magicial warmth that will give colour and sophistication. Sparkle never goes out of fashion. Be different and attain a thousand likes.
6 - Minimalistic Brides
Too much decoration is for many a visual overfill. Couples who feel “less is more” have easier choices for table centrepieces, without feeling overwhelmed. Glass elements will add depth and simplicity that such couples prefer. A small glass jar without any decorative element to which you add a handfull of tiny pieces of fine white paper could be a possibility for those who prefer not to clutter their line of vision.
7 - Brides with dedication
A devotion turned into reality is the best way to describe it. Themed weddings are great because of the commitment with which each tiny detail is prepared. Centrepieces and table names should be included. A beach wedding should have table centrepieces according to the experience. Seashells,small jars with sand and parchment scrolls a bottle that has been washed up on the shore, shells and other mementos that come from the sea are the perfect finish for a table that you will fall in love with.
Making every detail count is the key to success on a long-awaited and wished for day,not just for the bride and groom but also for all those who love them. Finding a magical place where they listen to your needs and concerns and then transform them into reality is easy when you know where to look.
If you still haven’t chosen your banquet venue, hurry, you’re still in time to book a magical place such as the Hotel Montiboli in Villajoyosa. In the heart of the Alicante coastline, between beautiful mountains and with easy access and the best service. The Montiboli offers signature cuisine and event rooms overlooking the sea.
Don’t leave any detail of your big day to chance. Look around, experiment, have fun. Book a reception venue, decide on a church or registry office, find your dress and don’t forget to pay attention to the wedding table centrepices.
Make a difference and be the queen of Instagram.
