Go bold with centerpiece. Many wedding reception tables are adorned with flowers.  While they are a lovely detail, try making a statement and going in a unique direction.   If you are having a country wedding or getting married in the Fall, try a rustic piece. If you are tying the knot in Spring, choose a tall flourishing spring bouquet.

Colorful and vibrant. While it is a good idea to stay within your color scheme, go bold and bright when decorating your tables. Soft, subdued colors are beautiful for the ceremony, yet making your reception hall vibrant is a good way to lift spirits.

Add photos of the bride and groom. Take personal candid photos of the two of you doing things you love together. Take lots of selfies and ask a passerby to capture special moments. Print the photos and place them on your tables to add personal flare.

Add quotes. When you run across a quote about love that inspires you, add it to a centerpiece. Use lines from songs, poems, stories, or even your own words to add romance to your table décor.
