Your wedding reception is a celebration of a new beginning. And as one of the most important events in your life, your tablescape should represent both who you are as a couple and individually.
Whether you’re designing a sleek, minimalist setting or going for a vibrant, colorful aesthetic– infusing natural elements and modern design will captivate your guests and create memories for years to come. From alternative patterns to innovative designs, here’s how to create an elegant modern wedding tablescape.
Mix and match different colors and patterns
Modern tablescapes don’t have to be monotone. Don’t be afraid to craft a colorful and vibrant wedding tablescape by layering different colors and patterns. Mixing both can create stunning event décor. On the other hand, if you prefer neutral colors and minimalist patterns, you can still easily integrate subtle patterns and tones.
To generate modern tablescape ideas, think about pairing classic seasonal blooms with a sleek black modern ceramic vase and geometric table runners. Find inspiration from your favorite paintings, graphic designs, or textiles to elevate your modern wedding tablescape to the next level.
Incorporate contrasting wedding florals
Floral table arrangements are an effective way to amplify your design ideas– but they’re so much more than that. Depending on their color, texture, and movement, fresh flowers add visual intrigue and a surprise element to your décor.
Modern wedding centerpieces often complement a monochromatic statement. Adding contrasting flowers can brighten up your tablescape with an unexpected punch of color. When it comes to wedding planning, minimalist vases paired with vibrant wedding florals can make all the difference.
Illuminate your décor with the perfect lighting
Lighting plays a vital role. A minimalist tablescape can look stark without enough light while achieving the perfect illumination can turn the same set-up into a stunning, crisp look.In other words, the bulbs and candles you choose (whether they’re simple votives or eye-catching fixtures) will either help or hurt your overall design and set the mood for your photos and festivities. For a warm, inviting look that illuminates your centerpiece, opt for dimmed overhead lighting with bright votives.
Play with texture for a dynamic look
When creating a modern wedding tablescape, combining different textures is key to achieving a cohesive and upscale look. Texture can be found in almost any detail — from your table runners to greenery to your linens and floral design
In addition to florals, stunning midcentury vases, and textured linens, don’t forget to consider the shape of your chairs and tables so the over-all effect is cohesive. Finally, incorporating a variety of textures and colors creates interest and movement for the eye, which can help transform your modern tablescape from “decorated” to “dynamic.”
