When it comes to the choosing the finishing touches to your wedding breakfast venue, there’s a lot to think about, and many trends to consider. From the furniture to the glassware, the crockery to the table linens, bringing everything together for the perfect dining room setting can be a complex process. Whilst these may seem like minor details, these are the details that will tie the whole room together in terms of look and style and set the tone for your big celebration. Your wedding breakfast is the first meal you will have together as man and wife, with the company of your closest friends and family. So every small detail is just as important as say the cake, or the choice of champagne, or the food on the menu. And when it comes to linen hire, there’s a whole world of colour schemes to explore. Here are some key looks and trends to consider for your wedding day (written by Independent Wedding suppliers, Plato Catering Hire):
Neutral Wedding Theme
Whites and neutrals are extremely popular for weddings and work especially well for classical venues, timeless themes and your typical white wedding. But that doesn’t mean that choosing your table linen will be an easy task. Because with lighter hues, it’s harder to create a sense of depth in your table design, meaning that you’ll need to match your table cloths, chair covers, centrepieces, crockery and glassware perfectly. Opt for a true white for a clean look or try warm nudes for a softer appearance. Peachy nudes and dusky pinks work particularly well with gold hardware and gold toned décor.
The Woodland Wedding
The rustically beautiful and nature-inspired woodland wedding is one of the biggest wedding theme trends in 2017; and we’ve seen the use of wooden logs and pine cones, wild flowers and foliage adorn tables in the most creative of ways. Whites and neutrals work well when it comes to table linen, providing a stylish contrast between fabric and nature. Or alternatively, experiment with earth based tones such as mushroom browns and greys, soft beige, muted olive or verdant greens.
Vintage Wedding Theme
Vintage weddings come in varying styles, some chintzy and cute and others highly sophisticated. So there’s a lot of room for creativity here. Bright table cloths mixed with clashing crockery and patterned table runners is a fantastic way of exploring the eclectic style. Or choose feminine pinks that evoke a sense of vintage romance.
The Monochrome Wedding
Create a contemporary, ultra-luxurious ‘black tie’ feel at your wedding breakfast with dark colourways that will contrast beautifully with golds, silvers or whites. The monochrome colour scheme is all about being bold, and gives the bride and groom a chance to be somewhat indulgent and ostentatious with their selection of room décor.
If you are planning a rustic wedding theme, you may want to consider no table cloths at all. Wooden tables are a huge trend in 2017/18 and the use of a simple table runner is often the best way to highlight the beauty of solid oak furniture. Carefully select table mats, napkins, runners and chair cushions and use neutral tones classic, understated charm.
