31 Stunning Wedding Table Decorations
When it comes to wedding table decorations, knowing your style preferences and wedding theme can help guide your decision-making. Think about whether you want to go for simple elegance or something fun and bright. Also consider how your table decor can pair with your wedding theme, color scheme, or venue. However you choose to celebrate, here are 31 stunning wedding table decorations to suit your style.
1. Use Floral Garland
Skip the classic table runner and make a statement with floral garland. Choose flowers that match the wedding colors and arrange the garland straight down the center of the table lengthwise. This wedding table centerpiece adds drama and glamour.
2. Go Rustic with Wooden Lanterns
For a rustic wedding, place wooden lanterns as the centerpiece of your tables. You can put photos in the center of each lantern or light them up in a wash of romance with tea candles. Guests will love savoring your wedding cake in the romantic ambiance.

3. Fuel the Fairytale with Fairy Lights
Your love is a fairytale â€” and your wedding ceremony should be too â€” so set the scene for magic and whimsy with fairy lights. These delicate accents look magical inside lanterns and mason jars.
4. Elevate the Look with Tall Florals
Make an impression with tall glass vases filled with spindly florals. Pair the tall pieces with smaller vases and candelabras to add depth to the tablescape and party decorations.
5. Go Wild for Wildflowers
Dress up your wedding reception tables with wildflowers. Choose flowers that are native to your local area or opt for your favorite wildflowers from a vacation spot you cherish.

6. Use Mini Trees
If youâ€™re having a summer wedding, miniature citrus trees make great wedding reception decorations. They also pair well with summertime wedding favors like mini bottles of limoncello.
7. Pretty in Pink Peonies
Hosting a spring wedding? Fill the wedding table with delicate pink peonies that add romance and whimsy to any celebration.
8. Dramatic Drapery
If your wedding involves a long, family-style table, take it to the next level with dramatic drapery. Choose long linens and drape it down the center of the table. Accent it with greenery, string lights, or tea light holders for some romance.
9. Transport Guests to the Tropics
Skip the flower arrangements and go for full leafy greenery with tropical displays of palm and monstera leaves. These work best in tall vases to make a dramatic impact.

10. Go Minimal and Chic
Instead of filling the table with dozens of bouquets, contemporary couples love minimal design. Choose just two to five flowers or elements of greenery like pampas grass to create stunning yet understated wedding table decorations.
11. Create Pow with Pampas Grass
Pampas grass is everywhere. From wedding decor to home decor, this fun, fluffy grass really makes a statement. Select tall vases, jugs, or pitchers and fill them with pampas grass for an elevated look. Add contrast by incorporating some smaller flame-free votive candles.Â
12. Top It Off with Terrariums
For brides and grooms who donâ€™t want a ton of floral centerpieces, consider the rugged beauty of terrariums. You can opt for one large terrarium packed with succulents or an understated arrangement of smaller terrariums to fill the center of your wedding tables.

13. Add Old World Beauty with Candelabras
Stunning candelabras are a style statement for vintage weddings. Choose oversized candelabras and have them tower over small vases filled with white florals.Â
14. Incorporate Simplicity
To skip the elaborate tabletop centerpieces, consider using a simple tablecloth. Add only one accent item â€” like a rose gold vase with a single white candle and a touch of greenery. To complete the pared-down look, use acrylic or metallic tableware.
15. Set Sail with Nautical Decor
Use nautical elements like anchors, ropes, and lighthouses to create a beachy marina look. Nautical elements pair well with simple greenery like eucalyptus boughs.

16. Play It Up with Pinecones
Pinecones are great for winter weddings and couples who love the great outdoors. Add pinecones to large, wide vases and pair them with florals or candles. For a winter wedding, add faux snow or glittering snowflakes for extra glitz and glam.
17. Light It Up with Lamps
Another great option for old-world lovers is elegant lamps. Look for vintage-inspired lamps in metallics like gold and silver. White shades are a classic choice or you can choose a hue to match your wedding theme.Â
18. Be Bold with Bud Vases
Gone are the days when large bouquets were the only centerpieces to consider. Go for something different with a long line of charming bud vases featuring one bloom each.
19. Go for Subtle Elegance with Babyâ€™s Breath
Looking for a simple floral arrangement for your table centerpieces? Drape babyâ€™s breath down the center of your table and accent the delicate flowers with tall, white candles. For a rustic touch, consider a burlap wedding table runner; for a dramatic approach, try a velvet or satin runner.Â
20. Fall for Fruits and Vegetables
If youâ€™re hosting a fall wedding, apples and pumpkins make great additions to wedding table decor. For a casual look, set a few apples out on the table and surround them with cinnamon sticks and fall florals. Greenery like artichokes and eucalyptus bows pair well with fruits.Â

21. Use Accent Table Numbers
Make it easy for guests to find their place by making the table numbers part of the decor. You can use Himalayan salt blocks, wooden tree stumps, gold frames, and even antique books to set the scene.
22. Celebrate with Hydrangeas
Hydrangeas are among the most popular wedding flowers â€” and for good reason. These lush flowers contain dozens of blooms that fill vases with a cheery look. Their pastel hues make them perfect for spring and summer weddings.
23. Play with Patterns
Wedding table decorations arenâ€™t just about the centerpieces. Play with patterns on tablecloths and runners to create a memorable look. You can also use placemats to create a gorgeous backdrop for your place settings.
24. Use Bold Branches
In addition to popular wedding flowers like ranunculus and hydrangeas, use rugged elements like branches for a bold look. Another popular combo is manzanita branches and tropical florals like orchids or tropical lilies.

25. Create Contrast with Color
While some couples prefer a monochromatic look, others will want a touch of contrast. Create a color burst look by pairing bright florals in two or three hues. You could also do black and white for a timeless look.
26. Make It Monochromatic
Choose one color and use various shades of it to create a stunning look. You can use lilac-colored sand to fill glass vases and add in a lavender candle. Pair with a few bouquets of wisteria or bellflowers.
27. Hang Greenery
Instead of building your wedding table decorations from the ground up, consider going from the top down. Hang floral party decorations like vines, ivy, and ferns from the ceiling or a metal frame above the wedding party and guest tables.

28. Go Rustic with Burlap
Burlap table runners and tablecloths are the perfect companions for a rustic wedding. You can add small candle holders wrapped in twine for a finishing touch.Â
29. Wonder in White
Host an all-white wedding that will transport guests to a magical evening. Choose white tablecloths and top them with white florals, white tableware, and white napkins.
30. Add Personality with Place Card Holders
Complete your wedding table setting with place card holders that let guests know exactly where to sit. There are plenty of creative place card holders you can make using fruits, mini succulents, seashells, and more.
31. Celebrate with Confetti
Confetti can add a cheerful touch to any wedding tablescape. For glamorous wedding table decorations, use metallic confetti. Diamond-shaped confetti and glass confetti are also great choices for elegant spreads. For a rustic look, think about using wood confetti instead.
