What Reception Tables Do I Need?

What Reception Tables Do I Need?

Every wedding is typically split between two things: the actual wedding and the reception. Before you get dizzy with the details of planning the wedding ceremony and dinner reception of your dreams, don’t forget to consider the basics! Like, what tables do you actually need for your reception? Many wedding venues have the tables you’ll need. If your venue does not provide rentals like tables, chairs, and linens, or you would like more options, you'll need to hire a rental company about six months prior to the big day. There's actually a lot of things to consider when ordering tables. You’ll want to coordinate with your vendors, like the florist and caterers, to plan the tables you’ll need.reception tables

What are the most important reception tables at a wedding?:

The Guestbook Table:

As your guests arrive you’ll need a table for the guestbook for your loved ones to sign in and pick up their escort card. This is an important table as it helps with the organization of the event and creates a keepsake.

The Gift Table:

A table for all the generous gifts from your friends and family.

The Memory Table:

Not everyone has this one, but adding this as one of your reception tables is a beautiful way for everyone to cherish their loved ones who have passed away.

The Head Table:

The head table is where you and your spouse and potentially immediate family members or the bridal party will sit.

The Guest Table:

You will have many of these. The guest tables are where your friends and family will sit and enjoy dinner and the reception program.

The Food Table:

Make sure you plan enough space for the food table. This is where all your guests will be able to pick up their food.

The Drink Table:

Alcohol or not, you’ll still want to set up a bar table for people to order their drinks. If you are having a cocktail hour, you’ll also need to order some cocktail tables!

The Cake Table:

Often the centerpiece of the reception, you’ll need a small table for the cake and desserts.

The DJ Table:

Coordinate with your DJ or musicians to determine the best setup. This isn't necessarily one of the reception tables you'll use for ambiance, but you also don't need a cheesy prom set up either.

How to Keep Your Wedding Cake Topper Keepsake

How to Keep Your Wedding Cake Topper Keepsake

Language of Love Forever Wedding Cake Topper Figurine

When we say "how to keep" your cake topper we basically mean, "what the heck do you do with it after the wedding?" Wedding cake toppers are beautiful, sentimental, and are the type of keepsake that you could potentially pass down to your future children. Even if your wedding cake topper is not ideal for being handed down through the generations and is instead a uniquely you design, it is still a memento and symbol of your special wedding day and because of this we recommend keeping that beautiful wedding cake topper out of a storage box and instead put on display!

Wooden Keepsake Display Stand

When displaying your cake topper there are a few things you should consider: First is the break-ability of your cake topper, second is the size of your cake topper, and third is the style of your cake topper. For example, if your cake topper is more comedic it probably won't mesh in a formal living room displayed in a glass case, and contrarily, if you have a crystal or porcelain wedding cake topper, then you won't want it to be on a entry table that is easily bumped or a coffee table that is frequently in use. If you have a particularly small cake topper you may consider creating a wedding day shadow box that includes the cake topper, your wedding bouquet, handkerchief, a photo, and other wedding keepsakes. A wedding day shadow box is a fun and creative way to display your wedding keepsakes, but if you are looking for something simpler, more transitional, and focused on your wedding cake topper, something like the above wooden display stand would be ideal. This stand incorporates your cake topper, a personalized message, and wedding photo. By having a display stand you can designate a less-bump-able/please-don't-touch room decor, while keeping it open and  a less museum-serious-glass-case display.

 

You spend so much time planning every detail of your wedding from picking out your wedding dress to selecting your wedding cake topper, and then it is over in just the blink of an eye. Let you wedding cake topper stand as a reminder of the planning, joy, and love of that special day.

Find Wedding Cake Toppers Perfect for Your Wedding Theme
Before the wedding cake can be checked off the wedding to-do list as being "complete" or even be considered completely perfect by the happy couple, there still needs to be one element to top it all off--the wedding cake topper--which can be either edible or a decorative piece, like a wedding figurine that the bride and groom can keep after the wedding.

One of the most common animals used in wedding decor happens to be birds, but certain types of toppers can look vintage or absolutely elegant with cats or dogs. Look at the core colors of the wedding cake topper because it can tie the theme together, as well as match the cake itself. Whether the wedding colors happen to be dark brown and blue or yellow and white, pick the topper or have a topper created with the main colors of the big day.

The Many Uses for Silk Rose Petals

Diverse Options and Many Styles of Silk Rose Petals

Silk Rose Petals

Never was there a more diverse decor option than silk rose petals. Silk rose petals work for weddings, receptions, engagements, anniversaries, quinceaneras, showers, and so much more. Unlike more specific decor options like centerpieces and linens, silk rose petals scale up or down pretty easily depending on the formality of your event. They're also a great way to dress up a venue that allows for only minimal decor interference, such as a swanky hotel bar or a conservative church. Silk rose petals come in all sorts of colors (though style experts will warn against anything too drastic), and look best against a stark white or cream background. The most beautiful setting for a bunch of silk rose petals has got to be the aisle during a wedding ceremony. As some venues don't allow fresh flowers (or you're getting married during a season when fresh rose petals may be a hassle), silk rose petals make for a great alternative that won't die. Guests love scooping up a few as a fun souvenir, and more thrifty brides will find a way to recycle them at a later date. Don't be surprised when you see the same silk rose petals at a classy baby shower a few months after an equally-classy wedding!
