Wedding reception decorations give couples a variety of options to show off their personal style and tastes. Reception elements such as centerpieces, favors, and linens are specifically chosen to add style and drama, play up a wedding theme and make the wedding feel unique to the couple.
The trends at receptions today show couples increasingly choosing mixtures of table shapes such as rectangular, square and circular tables in an a deliberate attempt to “uncoordinate” things. Centerpieces are typically different from table-to-table although they carry a common theme such as color or flower choice to pull the whole reception look together. Centerpieces that include unusual fillers such as glass marbles, shells, acrylic ice, fake snow, and fresh fruits also add a unique look to the event.
A very popular centerpiece choice is candles which come in various shapes and sizes such as pillars tea lights, tapers, and floaters. They give any room a romantic touch and can be incorporated into many unique designs and themes. LED floral lights, fiber-optic lights, and fake tea lights work well for facilities that do not allow open flames.
The most popular types of table confetti are silk or dried rose petals, acrylic diamonds and small shells. Cut flowers or flowering vines placed directly on a table always lend a rich touch, while reception chairs and tables can be accented with tulle, fabric overlays, Chinese lanterns, balloons or garlands. Disposable cameras on the table allow guests to capture more of the festivities for the newlyweds.
