Creating Your Destination Wedding Reception Table Setting


Wedding reception table settings are some of the dreamiest parts of your wedding; don’t you agree!? Once you have your destination wedding venue and wedding date secured, it is time to start organizing your wedding inspiration. While it can be overwhelming to make your wedding vision come to life, we’re sharing some Look At Me Brides tips for creating your destination wedding reception table setting!

Wedding Inspiration Organization

As you are thinking about your wedding reception table setting, start by looking through your Pinterest boards. Out of the wedding pins you’ve been re-pining for years (we promise we won’t tell your significant other lol), are there common wedding themes that stand out to you? If not, think about incorporating your favorite colors or other elements that might inspire your wedding look, like your favorite flower, wedding venue location, season you’re getting married in, etc. As you start to narrow down what you like and you’re making sure things go well together, your wedding vision will start to come to life! Exciting, right?!

Wedding Reception Table Setting Elements

When it is time to put your wedding reception table design together, you will want to incorporate your color scheme and style of your entire wedding. If you want to include a bright color, for example, part of your table setting is a great place to do that! If your color scheme is more neutral, layer different neutral tones to give your wedding reception tables a finished look.

Other great ways to create dreamy wedding reception table settings are to add personalized touches. This can include a charger plate or decorative placemat, uniquely folded napkin, or even trendy silverware and drinkware.

We also love adding custom wedding stationery elements to each table setting. For plated reception dinners, we recommend name place cards for each guest that are color/custom coded for different meal choices. Another wedding stationery trend we love is to include a wedding reception menu on each table setting to get your guests excited about your wedding reception dinner.

To go above and beyond for your table setting, we recommend adding a gift for your wedding guests. Some of our favorites include authentic items from Cabo like hand blown glass or custom monogrammed maracas.

Last but not least, think about how your overall table décor will tie everything together, from the amount and different sizes of candles to your flower arrangements. You can even get creative with your table number designs, or skip the traditional table numbers and use table themes, like your favorite travel destinations as a couple, instead!
