Place settings are an essential component of your wedding reception. Your place setting can reflect the mood of the moment and is a great way to extend your wedding’s theme and bring it to a whole new level. Whatever your style, your guests will appreciate the personal touch. From chargers to napkins, get inspired by this gorgeous tableware. 

1. Fruit Forward (Above)
Go for an organic vibe with simple white tableware, gold flatware and a gauzy napkin from Sweet Legacy. Stylist Meghan Lee Harris adds a plump pear and a rosy bouquet from Jennifer Joyce Design for a kiss of color. The hand-lettered name card is by Brittney Tovar Calligraphy

2. Very Blueberry
A deep, classic blue (the 2020 color of the year) in the charger, glassware and candles adds delicious flavor (not to mention a bowl of delectable blueberries) at the wedding of Lauren Lee and Casey Morin, styled by Amanda Steinhauer Photography.

3. Put a Ring on It
Golden tones and pristine whites set the stage for an elegant setting, while the little things—a classically ornate napkin ring and a stately wax seal on the menu card—make this arrangement stand out.

4. Casually Chic
The simplicity of this setting creates a relaxed, natural mood, with understated tableware, an unstructured napkin, flowing script on a deckle- edge menu card and a single, delicate bloom.

5. A Little Romance
Gentle pink and lilac hues in table linens and glassware quietly offset white florals and greenery and a bold geometric placemat in this setting designed by Relax Event Planning. Linens and tableware from BBJ Linen and Event Essentials, flowers by daffodil*parker, stationery by Sugar Pear Design. Photo by Azena Photography.

6. Tone on Tone
Deep greens and creamy golds combine for a sumptuous setting. Styled by Blossoms Flower House, the arrangement is warmed by candlelight on a wooden table from Vintage Farmhouse Tables, with layers of color in alternating hues of the plates and the watercolors on the menu card by Victoria Danielle.

7. Seaside Vibe
Bring a beach feel to your table, as stylist Elizabeth Jordan Events does, with a weathered cheesecloth napkin and rugged beechwood bowls on a whitewashed table.
