The basics of a beautiful feast

First of all, when decorating a wedding table with your own hands, you should not think about fashion, not about what guests will think, but about your personal wishes. For a successful, sincere design it is worth considering such rules.

  • The combination of incongruous - do not be afraid of experiments.
  • Using the maximum number of textures, parts from different materials. If the style allows, then you can use dried wooden branches, satin and organza ribbons when decorating the wedding table. You can organize an unusual photo zone: for example, for a wedding in a retro style, a photo zone with vintage details (an aged mirror, vinyl records) is suitable, for other styles you can choose a floral photo zone.
