Inspiration for rustic but elegantly decorated tables for your wedding reception


Natural looking wedding tables covered with rustic hessian cloths

For me, creating a welcoming wedding reception table for your guests to dine at is an extremely important part of a wedding.  I love touches such as flickering candles, a sprinkling of fresh flowers, and soft fabrics.

If I was still planning my wedding, this image above would definitely have been added to my inspiration folder when it came to dressing our tables.  I love the natural hessian/linen cloth draped over the table, the collection of mason jars emitting their soft candlelight, and those jolly looking menus that along with the floral colour break up an otherwise quite neutral palette.

The way these tables have been decorated captures that rustic but elegant look that I wanted to achieve for my own wedding, and I hope you find some inspiration from it too.
