From centrepieces, statement installations, floral arches to the top table, flowers play an important part at a wedding. The colours, forms and scents create much of the atmosphere that makes a wedding truly magical, memorable and evokes emotions in years to come. 

Today, we are discussing How to Style the Top Table. Couples often focus their attention on the centrepieces for their guests to admire on their wedding day, and forget about the importance of dressing their own top table. Enjoying your first meal as a married couple, surrounded by your loved ones is a feeling that you should never forget.

Bouquets and Ceremony

If you are looking to save those pennies, re-use the arrangement created for the ceremony table on the top table, along with the bridesmaid’s bouquets in small cylinder vases. You’ve paid for them, so why not get the most out of them, hey?

Decorate the length of the table and drape a beautiful long garland of flowers, foliage and maybe even some pearls or string lights to ambience when the evening sets in. Depending on your budget, you could trail the floral garland to hang off the sides on the top table and laid elegantly on the floor.



Jam jars, Vases & Bottles

If you are looking to keep the theme rustic, simple but still spectacular, this idea is perfect for you. You don’t have to opt for the big, large floral displays; different sized vases can look just as amazing when used on mass across the top table. Group in twos or threes or randomly position (random is surprising hard when you’re a perfectionist!) the vases in place.


Jam Jars



A great way to define the newlywed’s place if they prefer to mingle in with the guests is to use signs, florals or ribbons on the back of the chairs.
