{Wedding Table Round Up}: And Color Palettes to Coordinate!

September 13, 2011
There are many ways you can use color to bring your wedding to life. One of my favorite ways is through your wedding tables. Because let's face it, your guest will most likely be spending quite a bit of time at their seat. So my thought process is...why not spend a little bit of extra time making your wedding tables fabulous? Today I'm sharing with you some of my favorite wedding tables along with their coordinating color palettes.


I'm completely in love with the idea of going without table cloths and simply dressing up tables with fun patterned runners to add visual interest as well as bright colored napkins. This just goes to show that place settings truly do provide such a great opportunity to show your personality.


Also it's important to take into consideration whether you would like round tables or long rectangular tables. Although I can see the benefit of each seating arrangement, there is truly something special about how a long table makes it feel as though everyone is dining together. Don't you think?


I don't think it's any secret that I'm smitten with chiavari chairs. Oh, and of course I seriously can't deny my love for these coral colored ones. I love how the centerpieces and chairs truly make this table pop.


This lovely and quaint table really is sweet don't you think? It just goes to show that you don't have to go overboard with your wedding tables. Simple understated centerpieces go along way when combined with candle light and crisp, white linens.


I love how this table of camel and light blue takes a creative approach by using table runners on each place setting. It really defines the place setting and also creates a placemat of sorts that is visually appealing and functional to boot.


If you insist on going for the 'wow' factor, I suggest that you combine beautiful arrangements of blooms in various sizes. It's so nice to see variation instead of uniformity sometimes. When you have variety, beautiful things happen.


Oh, and not to be forgotten... Not only can you add pretty pops of color using colored glassware, but you can also add lovely textures that will truly add that something special to your tables.


Want to put together a pretty table, but not sure where to start? I think this table has it all! I'm loving the how these candles almost dance across the table. And I can't get over how lovely the pairing of burlap and crystal is. This is ambiance all the way.


Looking for an easy way to brighten up your plain white tables? Simply use a neutral plate charger and colored napkins. It's that small pop of color that will read really big once multiplied.

And who could resist this lovely barn venue with it's rustic yet sophisticated tables? I'm loving the family style dining as well as the simplicity of the tablescape. These tables are definitely the perfect compliment to those gorgeous chandeliers.

So there you have it! These are my favorite wedding tables and just a few tips from yours truly. There really are so many ways to use your tables to create visual interest. Whether it be through your linens, centerpieces, place settings or even table runners, you're sure to find lots of lovely ways to infuse a touch of color.

I really love these brightly colored palettes right now. Maybe it's because the weather is feeling more like summer -- AGAIN. I thought fall should have been here by now!
