7 Ways to Elevate Your Wedding Tablescape


When your wedding guests saunter into the reception and catch that first glimpse of your table decor, you can't help but hope they'll be overcome with awe over the Insta-worthy, sweeping tablescape that you worked so hard to curate. To alleviate some of that table decor planning stress, we're sharing our favorite ways to make your wedding tablescape pop, both on the big day and in the photos you'll look back on... Take this inspo and make it all your own, babes!

Lush Garlands

A lusciously draping garland wedding tablescape can be made simple or whimsical, depending on your vibe! Minimalist brides will favor greenery and possibly clean white flowers, while more fanciful brides should go for lots of colorful florals and whimsy.

Statement Candles

Having tapered candles as the center focus of your wedding tablescape brings a dreamy glow to the overall look. It’s a sort of enchanting, old world feel that will compliment any wedding vibe. 

Make it Fruity

Fresh fruits like citrus, figs, grapes, and pomegranates flawlessly compliment florals or greenery to give off a very natural, organic feel. Incorporate these into a floral arrangement, or add them loosely along the table for a unique and unexpected tablescape. 

On the Menu

And speaking of food… A displayed menu brings a little something extra to the table (excuse the pun), so guests can get excited about the good eats in store. Post it on a special stand for all to see, or have one for each guest’s place setting. Either way, it will elevate your wedding table scape pics. 

Pops of Copper

We love an on-trend metallic copper moment, so why not use it to spice up your table decor? A mule mug here, a candle holder there will work wonders when looking for ways to make your wedding tablescape pop.

Agate Place Cards

Perhaps best suited for smaller guest lists (from both a price and practicality standpoint), an individually crafted agate place card takes place settings to the next level. Plus, it makes guests feel extra special, and have a personalized trinket to go home with as a wedding favor. 

Cactus Centerpieces

Cacti of varying heights, types, and textures make for a multi-dimensional table centerpiece that is so visually pleasing. Plus, there’s no worries about wilting florals, so you’ll have a picture perfect tablescape looking fresh all day (or night) long.
