Have you ever thought that your wedding guests will spend most of their time sitting on the tables? Therefore, taking care of every detail is essential when organising the layout of your tables and, of course, dressing them. Achieving a balance between aesthetics and comfort will be the key for everyone to enjoy the party and stay until the end!
As the Wedding Planning Expert and founder of The Wedding Company, Anett Tarcsay, told us the first time we met when she was looking for wedding props: “When you turn that fantasy into a fact, you are in a position to build even better fantasies. And that, my friend, is the Creative Process - Bob Proctor. Since then we have started a joint search for products to dress her wedding tables, guided by her expertise as a Wedding Planner and Interior Designer and the experience of our founder, Melanie Kalfaian. Givenchy, Marriot and Hilton Hotels, Carmen Steffens, Warner Bros, and MAC are some of the international brands with which she had the opportunity to work with before launching WAH.
“Sometimes it's hard to achieve the decorating results you have in mind because you can't find the products you are looking for and this is frustrating and time consuming. When Anett from The Wedding Company wrote to us, she was very clear about what she wanted and our mission was to make those tables possible for her clients”, Melanie Kalfaian, What a Host Home & Hygge Decor Founder.
After months of intense work, we decided to summarise this year's trends, what's coming up, and how to achieve attractive rustic tablescapes for your wedding. Here we share 5 tips to leave your guests speechless!
1) Bet on rectangular tables and innovative layouts
Even before thinking about the decoration, the first thing is to consider what tables you are going to use and how they are going to be arranged in the venue. Although round tables are still valid, they are the traditional option for more classic couples (This type of table allows between 6 and 13 guests). On the other hand, rectangular tables are unquestionably a trend and are here to stay. More and more couples are opting for a more informal and rustic layout. Also, rectangular tables allow a much broader floral decoration where it is possible to mix different decorative elements such as vases and candle holders. Another positive aspect is that there is no maximum number of guests, since it is possible to make them as long as we want.
