As you begin to plan your wedding, you’ll likely need to put some thought into the overall design!
To make your day extra special with beautiful floral designs and centerpieces, we’ve gathered Innovative Table Designs For Your Wedding featuring a variety of styles to inspire your celebrations this season!
Wedding Pop-Up at Chez | Vivid Ultra Violet
Inspired by Pantone’s™ 2018 Color of the Year, this wedding table design is for the boldly modern bride!
Event Producer Joshua Jones at Kehoe Designs worked with our vendor partners at Storybook Weddings & Events (planning), Food For Thought (catering), Studio M Chicago (stationery), The Festive Frog (goblets) and BBJ Linen to create this color-rich design. The team selected Ultra Violet as the foundational color then layered enigmatic fuchsia, complex magentas, striking reds and rich black calla. Collaboration with floral design extraordinaire, Senior Event Designer John Beran, resulted in a textured dynamic vignette that blended florals, furniture, textiles, technology, and accessories into a forward-thinking style.
“Our goal was to create a radiant vibe juxtapose vibrancy against serene neutrals while creating textural art that gave guests a fresh, modern take on floral design,” Jones said. To execute, Beran used Phalaenopsis orchids, striking Rothschild orchids, and a blend of peonies and red roses in a unique focal centerpiece design that complemented the white walls of Chez Event Space. Mirrored accents and gold finishes added a luxe touch to noir upholstery in Baroque styles. The result? “A world of edgy, artistic style with soft romantic elegance.”
Celebrate Everything at VenueSIX10 | Simplicity Elevated
Winter wedding veiled in transparency, reflective glass, candlelight and violet tone lighting that glistened and glowed. The cascades of white vines and pillow-like beds of all white floral created a dream effect where anything is possible.
Though the terrarium trend is nothing new, Senior Event Producer, Timot McGonagle worked with our partners at Storybook Weddings & Events (planning), Blue Plate Catering (catering), Reenie Rose (calligraphy), and BBJ Linen to play “on the visual pun of ‘white and crystalline’ rather than ‘lush and green’”, utilizing translucence and reflection to give a frozen ice-like effect. Inside the acrylic tables are beds of untamed florals and on clear pedestals are cascades of white blooming branches. Clear phantom chairs, mirrored riser’s and the transparent table settings completed the contemporary winter fantasy.
The overall effect against VenueSIX10’s sleek glass walls was elegant, clean, and lush. Strategically layered, faux and real elements created a whimsical display on a dramatic scale that revealed more at every angle. “Like a 3D hidden picture, there were continual visual discoveries each time the design was viewed,” McGonagle said. “It was a definite ‘WOW’ that could be reinterpreted in many ways within a wedding’s design.”
Wedding Week at The Jam TV Show | Versatile Violet
Wedding fashions come and go, but your personality will always remain. Why not start there for table design inspiration?
“I think the most prevalent trend that we are seeing is a rejection of tradition for tradition’s sake and a movement towards embracing a personal style that is full of character and originality,” said Event Producer Collin Hardy Duwe, “Pantone’s™ 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, embodies bold color and bright choices.”
Because bright color can be intimidating, Duwe showcased the shade in two ways on WCIU’s The Jam morning TV program. The first style, featuring a lavish raised floral design paired with shimmering sequin linen from BBJ Linen, and a clear tabletop collection with silver accents for the adventurous bride.
The second, a more muted natural feminine version, incorporated Pantone’s™ 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery, into a delicate hand-picked low centerpiece to soften the table into a more traditional bridal look. Gold flatware and unique accessories from Hall’s Rentals added warmth and individualistic flair. Whatever design you lean towards, Duwe vows that wedding styling is about “getting in touch with your personality and individual style and making it work for you.”
“People really just want to bring their vision to life,” he said. “We take your ideas and build out this beautiful world for each couple to step into and just celebrate their day.” Isn’t that what weddings are all about?
