Wedding centerpiece tips and ideas

Wedding reception table decorations are the flourish of colour that transform a humble reception into a night to remember.
The colour and spice of a gorgeous wedding table setting are the hallmark of a truly memorable event and a signal to your friends and families that on this night, this is a magical place.
Wedding table design requires a little skill, coordination and some knowlegde of colour. If you plan carefully everything will glide into place. Don't over do the decorating, simplicity is the key. When in doubt, leave it out!!!
If you are having your reception at a hotel ballroom, a reception hall or restaurant, ask the venue; if they have anything in the form of table decorations or decorative table embellishments. As you are looking for wedding table ideas, this information will give you a head start.
They may perhaps have lovely metal or glass candlelabras or vases for each table, so you'll save money with not needing to hire them elsewhere. They may include them with the wedding reception package.
Have you ever been to a wedding were everything was white? Napkins, table cloths, white vases, white floral arrangement. It still works beautifully.
Personally I love a splash of colour or a combination of colours and textures. There is no need to for your wedding reception table decorations to be expensive. Simple wedding reception ideas are usually more classy and generally less expensive. They are also the easiest to coordinate and to get right.
