Decorating Wedding Tables For Under £15 Each

DIY-ing your own wedding tables is a fantastic idea, and one that will certainly help you to keep the costs down. We all know how they can quickly mount up! There really is no need to spend lots of time and money on your wedding tables, and you certainly don’t want to be fiddling with decorations or primping flowers on the morning of your big day.

Our easy ideas will ensure your wedding venue gets your tables just right with some simple instructions, or that you can have your tables easily decorated yourself the night before. The result will be nothing short of perfect, and the best thing is you will have saved yourself a fortune without compromising on style.

Let’s Talk About Linens

Shabby chic may be all the rage, but do you really want bare and possibly scratched tables as part of your big day? Linens such as tablecloths and napkins can make a big impression, and add a touch of elegance to any plain table. Our wedding tablecloths and napkins come in a range of beautiful colours, and come pressed and ready to use the moment they arrive with you. Crisp, pristine and utterly gorgeous, our tablecloths give you the perfect blank canvas on which to style the rest of your table.

Atmospheric Candles

We recommend that you steer clear of scented candles on the tables where food is to be served, but they are most certainly fair game anywhere else. Try adding some candles to your fireplace if you have one in your venue room, or have them dotted around on side tables. Once the sun goes down, and they are lit, they will add a shimmering romantic feel to the room. Plain candles on the table are also a lovely idea, but place them inside hurricane lamps or similar jars to prevent people getting singed sleeves as they reach for the sugar bowl!

Cost Effective Centrepieces

If you have a college nearby, you could enquire to see if students would be happy to make your centrepieces for you. Colleges are often looking for willing people to experiment on, and you could even get your flowers for free. Otherwise, look for flowers on the cheaper end of the scale such as gerberas, sweet williams and carnations. These can look beautiful when mixed with green foliage, and nobody will ever know you didn’t spend a fortune. You can also add a sprinkling of natural petals to your tables instead of table confetti. This looks especially effective on wedding tables with a traditional English theme.

Transform Your Venue On A Budget

It would be great to have a bottomless budget when it comes to wedding planning, but sadly for most of us this is just a dream. The good news is there are lots of wonderful ways you can transform your venue without spending a small fortune. Our table linens are just one way to do that, and we have a wide range of colours available. Mix and match, set a theme or go for all out elegance - our linens give you the freedom to choose your perfect look.
