Wedding Reception Supplies


Transform your venue your venue with wedding reception supplies. Flowers, favors, table linen, candles, place names - the possibilities are endless. Your guests will have already seen glimpses of your theme at the ceremony, but the reception is where it is all tied together and you can really go to town. Before you start wedding reception decorating think about how your decorations can showcase your personality and style as a couple. It's your big day, decorate it your way.

The escort cards will be the first thing your guests look at before they take their seats at your reception. You don't have to have traditional rows of cards, the names can be on literally anything you like, so add your personality to them. For a spring or summer themed wedding you could have each name written on a butterfly shaped card, tied with ribbon onto twisted willow in a huge vase. This design will look great at the entrance to your reception room and looks particularly gorgeous with branches of flowering cherry blossom. You could alter this design for any season, different colored cards in leaf shapes for fall, or snowflake shapes for a winter wedding tied onto silver twigs.



When you choose your wedding reception supplies, remember the floral centerpiece is the focal point on the reception tables; it should draw attention to the table and reflect your chosen theme. You want to wow your guests with your fabulous flowers, but don't forget they need to be able to see across the table too. If you chose a design that blocks peoples view across the table, they will probably get frustrated and move the flowers somewhere else. Your design should either be low enough to see over or high enough so the flowers are above head height when sat at a table. Ask your florist how tall the designs are that you have in mind, if you still aren't sure ask for a sample to be made. Low designs include short vase arrangements, bowls and posy designs. Tall arrangements are things like candelabras and lily vases.

Favors are a tiny gift to guests from the bride and groom. Traditionally favors were sugared almonds but these days anything is acceptable such chocolate boxes, tiny pails of retro candy, alcohol miniatures, lottery tickets or packets of flower seeds. If you write the guests names on a tag and tie to it to the favor they can double up as place cards too. Many wedding websites can add your names and wedding date as a special touch.





You can make your reception look extra special by hiring wedding reception supplies such as table linen to co-ordinate with your theme. There are some gorgeous fabrics like velvet or brocade. A Damask pattern will give your tables an elegant regal look. You can carry the theme through with matching napkins and chair covers. The finishing touches for your reception tables are accessories to place around your centerpiece. You could add a warm glow to your tables by placing tea lights around your centrepiece or there are lots of scattering accessories you can use. Fresh rose petals, crystals, confetti or heart shaped gems.
