Once your guests have moved on from the wedding ceremony, they’ll be ready to party! But first: dinner. Many wedding reception decor focuses around the dinner table, and for good reason! A well-decorated table can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for guests to settle in and enjoy a meal together. One of my favorite ways that brides and grooms are choosing to decorate their wedding tables is with individual place settings, where each seat has a special detail. Whether these double as favors or are purely decorative pieces is up to you — but your guests are sure to be delighted to find a sweet treat waiting for them at the dinner table!
But what to chose? Much of this will depend on your wedding theme, and the vibe you’ll want to create with the table decor. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite wedding place setting ideas to help heighten the atmosphere of your reception. Which of the below will be your favorites?
If you’re looking for a sweet celebration that looks like it’s straight out of a storybook, you’ll love today’s fairytale wedding at a B&B, captured by the team at Chellise Michael Photography! Gayle and Thomas were married at the Shorecrest B&B on Long Island, with a sweetly intimate ceremony where Gayle and Thomas both walked down the aisle together. Their tented reception had the prettiest handmade details and literary touches.
Gayle looks like a bride out of a fairytale, with a gorgeous gold hair piece and a dress which incorporated parts of her grandmother’s wedding gown, while Thomas looks every bit the handsome prince charming! Read on to see more beautiful photos of this special day…

When it comes to your wedding dessert choices, the possibilities are seemingly endless. From donuts to pies to cake pops, it’s possible to celebrate your wedding day with all your favorite sweet treats at once! However, when it comes to the wedding cake, many couples are opting for something a little different than the traditional multi-tiered behemoths. And why not? Traditional wedding cakes are expensive and a little less tasty than normal cake, given all the fondant involved.
If you want to have wedding cake on the big day but aren’t sold on getting a classic tiered cake, why not use one of these more untraditional wedding cake ideas? We love how they’re a little different, a little unique, but make a big impact in terms of design and flavor. Read on to see some of our favorite untraditional wedding cake ideas…
It’s always easy to spot a gorgeous wedding by the talented Lara Hotz — her couples march to the beat of their own drums, are impossibly stylish and most of all, are full of smiles on their wedding day. Today’s couple, captured of course by Lara Hotz, takes stylish handmade weddings to a whole different level! Jemima and Mitchell were married at the Palm House in the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney. Their sweet, intimate ceremony was followed by a totally DIY wedding reception in the Palm House that was decorated with handmade herb garlands and sweet flower arrangements.
Jemima is every bit a stunning boho bride in her floral Erdem wedding dress, and Mitchell kept it dapper with a classic black suit. They even opted to eschew tradition and get ready together before their ceremony. Now that’s the type of free-spirited, modern couple we love!
