It goes without saying, you wish your wedding be perfect from its beginning to the finish overall. Nevertheless, so many people are prone to disregard of the details’ importance when it comes to such things as decoration for the reception party, including tablecloths. The tables are not only the places to sit and enjoy your dinner, while waiting for high-spirited speeches – those are the features of your wedding day, in so far of a sense as in view of your hairstyle or dress.
The way you prefer to accessorize and decorate your tables at the reception is really important to give your entire wedding the same unique look and feel as you please. All the details are really important – be sure your mother-in-law has something to say about the tablecloth is not elegant enough. You may certainly want thinking of tables with blank canvas to sit at, yet it is high time to let the fun begin.
Look at your wedding gown and at the rest of your wedding – is your frock ornate enough? What were the flowers like? Were there any sparkles? That is the starting point for your reception party tablecloths. When you consider this, such wedding tablecloths can add a great deal of design to the reception hall for both the color and design really matter.
Evidently, you are likely to want to choose the tablecloth of proper size – what is really worse for a guest than sitting at the table and see that the cloth mismatches the table’s length? Nevertheless, at the same time, you do not want the table cloths to be too long – this can cause the stumble effect for your guests being up and sown; moreover it would look ugly.
Ideally, you may want your table cloth to cover the table at the point where you can hardly see the table legs. Though not too long to the legs all over down to the floor. Measure the table’s height beforehand! A useful measuring tip is to measure the table proper and then add some 60” to the point – this can give you an excellent starting point for choosing tablecloths.
Once you have chosen the proper size, you can go ahead and move on to the color. That is really up to you to make the final choice, though you may want the color to match the wedding. In case you have an e.g. lilac-themed event, you may have lilacs as well as lilac bridesmaids’ gowns; so basically, you would prefer to have lilac table clothes. This may be a lilac runner over your white table cloth or even lilac table cloth only with white or ivory table cloth accessories placed on the top.
This can also bring us to the second point – what type of tablecloth you would like to have? There are three main types you can choose from:
- The underlay cloth–that can be the base color for all of your wedding table accessories; moreover, as it was mentioned above, you could choose lilac (let us stay with that theme for a while) or ivory/white.
- The overlay tablecloth that can be the elegance factor of your wedding table accessories this can be such textured fabric as lace; moreover it should be the opposite color to that of the underlay fabric. So, for instance, in case you have gone with ivory or white on the bottom, you can go for lilac on the top, or vice versa. This will be the focal point of your wedding tables – it is the fabric that people wish they can feel and see, so the better the quality is and the higher the price is the better table cloth surely is.
- As we have already mentioned above – the table runner, can surely make your table pop. It might be an accent color, so of for instance, your underlay be lilac, your overlay should be either lilac or an ivory one; that part of the table can be a different tint of lilac or maybe green in case you have graceful green shrubbery in with flowers. You could just add a bit of sparkle and have sequins on the lilac’s top.
One should also bear in mind that each detail really counts when it comes to nuptials and even something as small and apparently insignificant as the tablecloth can make the real difference to how people can see and appreciate your wedding. Do not neglect the details and you will surely have your big day worth of remembering for the rest of your life.
