Planning Your Wedding Reception Decor

Decorating Wedding Reception Tables
Once you have decided where to have your wedding reception, you can start thinking about the design of your reception tables. Using place cards and place card holders not only direct guests to their seats, but they are the perfect way to dress up your reception tables or to continue a theme. Today, many place card holders can do double duty by also serving as a wedding favor for your guests.

Another aspect of reception table decoration is the centerpiece. You want to be sure that the reception centerpieces are not so large that they keeps your guests from seeing each other. One really clever idea is to create a larger floral or candle arrangement using smaller vases and candles.  At the end of the reception, the individual pieces serve as wedding favors when each person seated at the table then takes one of them home.

The Head Table
If you are planning to have a head table for you and your wedding attendants, be sure to put it at the front of the room.  It is customary for the head table to seat each of the attendants facing the other wedding guests.

A very popular decorating idea is to use wedding party toasting glasses at each place setting. Another idea is to consider decorating the head table with one of the accent colors used elsewhere at the reception. For example, if you have chosen garnet and gold for your wedding colors, the guests’ tables may be covered in garnet table cloths, while the head table is covered in shimmering gold with garnet accents

The Gift Table
Many of your guests will bring their wedding gift with them to the reception. Place your gift table near the entrance of the reception so that your guests don’t have to worry with storing it during the party. You can also move your guest book from the ceremony location to the reception venue and place it nearby. Be sure to use make the table inviting by using the same decorations as the other tables in the room.

The gift table is also the perfect place for a wedding card holder, which can serve as the gift table centerpiece. There are some beautifully designed card holders available today, including personalized etched glass card holder which serve as wedding heirlooms after the event.

The Cake Table
Perhaps the most important table in the room is the table that holds the wedding cake. Because today's wedding cakes are available in so many beautiful designs, this table needs to be centrally located so that the wedding cake serves as both dessert and decoration. If you are planning to have people serve themselves wedding cake, then be sure there’s enough room for people to move on both sides.

Many brides purchase whimsical cake tops that fit the bride and groom's personality or custom personalized cake tops to set next to the cake as additional decoration and as a keepsake!

Wedding Cakes
It's a given tradition that the bride and groom share a wedding cake with their guests at the wedding reception, but do you know why? The tradition of the wedding cake can be traced back to medieval times. Back then, each guest at a wedding was supposed to bring a small cake. The cakes would then be stacked on the table in levels and layers. If the bride and groom were able to kiss over the top of the stack it was considered good luck. Find Your Wedding Cake Baker Here
