Planning your wedding reception décor is a really fun part of your wedding planning prep. Your wedding table decorations – from your wedding centrepieces to table runners and even napkin choices – allow you to show off your theme, colour palette and creativity.

Whether you personalise your wedding with funny table names, make a dramatic statement with a grand centrepiece or DIY your wedding favours, we have loads of ideas to inspire you.

If you’re on a tight budget, cheap wedding table decorations can bring a venue to life; if you can splash out, your candles, flowers and favours will be the perfect finishing touches.

Your guests will spend a significant portion of the reception at their table so put in as much effort as you would for all your other décor. Think about using complementary and accent colours to your palette, and adding height, light, scent and interest to the table (but nothing so high it stops people speaking across the table!)

Here are our 47 favourite wedding table decoration ideas divided into inspiration pics from our wonderful Hitched suppliers to shoppable pieces you can buy now - happy scrolling!

Wedding Table Decoration Inspiration 

Your caterers or venue will normally provide white or ivory tablecloths as a blank canvas to decorate. At a minimum, each table will need a centrepiece and table name or number, and each place setting will have a place card, wedding favour, napkin, and some additional flourishes, such as a spring of rosemary on top of your menu.

1. Multi-Level Candles

Build up different levels of candles in vases and votives for a warm, modern look that’s great with metallics and plenty of green foliage. You’ll need to check if you’re allowed naked flames at your venue, otherwise use LED candles. We’re obsessed with these dripping gold candle holders from Not On The High Street for a contemporary, glamorous display.

2. Miniature Crates

Give your tables a rustic feel by using wooden crates rather than vases for your flowers – this is a great look for barn, tipi and farm weddings. You can buy personalised wooden crates that are the perfect size for centrepieces here

3. Bud Vases

Intersperse bud vases or old milk bottles filled with sprigs of foliage and wild flowers with colourful taper candles and glassware for pops of colour along a banquet style table arrangement. We love these vintage style bud vases

4. Seasonal Touches 

Celebrate the season with your wedding table decorations and incorporate the colours reflected in the natural landscape. Autumn has long been a favourite season for Instagrammers and Pinterest enthusiasts thanks to the rich oranges, reds and browns that light up the natural landscape during this period. We love the complementary stationery by The Amyverse, gold chargers and fruits in this set-up. 

5. Subtle Florals

Flower centrepieces naturally add elegance and romance to your reception tables, but you don’t need to go for one big display. With subtle floral and foliage additions, you can transform your table.

6. Elevated Arrangements 

We absolutely love tall floral centrepieces that have space underneath for guests to keep the conversation going. Elevated florals arrangements with square frames like the ones above also leave plenty of space for pillar candles in hurricane jars

7. Potted Herbs

Herbs make great lowkey and low-cost centrepieces. They'll add a gorgeous scent to your table, as well as colour if you choose a herb like lavender. Try to match your herbs with the seasons: mint and basil are fantastic for spring and summer, hardier herbs like rosemary and thyme work for autumn and winter.

8. Blossom Trees

Blossom trees make for romantic and impactful wedding table centrepieces. We love the tiny tea light filled baubles hanging from the ones above, buy these hanging tea light holders from Hobbycraft for a similar effect.

9. Spring Blooms

A wedding table with tulips, daffodils and poppies

 In spring and summer, a smaller selection of vibrant wildflowers is enough to bring a table to life. Choose bright-coloured blooms like cornflowers, foxgloves, tulips, daffodils or poppies that are simple but statement.

10. Florals and Fruit

 Use fruit to add a whole other dimension to your floral displays. Autumn really suits red apples, pears and pomegranates while summer displays look majestic with vibrant citrus fruits like lemons and juicy green apples. 

11. Hanging Hoops

If you're having a traditional long top table facing out to your guests, adding something to the front is a good idea. Not only will it tie in your theme, it will also give a beautiful shot when your photographer snaps you doing your wedding speeches! We love these unique floral hoops, ask your florist about sourcing some to add foliage to or buy some decorated with artificial blooms

21.Macramé Touches

Boho brides, is there anything more free-spirited and cool than a macramé table runner? We're also obsessed with wall and chair hangings, all of which can be rented from Knot Again Jill

22. Textured Table Runners

23. Greenery Garlands

Not all table runners need to be fabric. How stunning is this foliage display against the rustic wooden table underneath? It’s accentuated here with lemons and seasonal herbs. 

24. Bold Contrasts

We love how the muted shades of the surrounding walls and floors have been complemented with the sandy coloured florals in this boho style set-up but what really catches our eye is the contrasting turquoise table names. Try adding contrasting elements to your wedding tables for a look that really pops. 

25. Seaside Accessories
