Some of the most charming ideas are rooted in simplicity. It’s sometimes easier to complicate things than it is to just leave them in their original raw state. An idea is formed, approved of, and then improved. Except that perhaps along the way it loses something that it had originally. That’s not to say that every initial idea is born fully formed; but maybe some are. When it comes to adding details to your wedding it can be hard to go over the top. Everything is acceptable. After all, it’s your day to do with as you want. But occasionally a simple solution should be just that. Simple. Especially when it comes to your table plan.
As a wedding photographer I have taken more photos of more table plans than I care to remember. There have been some brilliant ones, and there have been some which look great but don’t serve their purpose as a table plan because you need specialist training from the code-breakers at Bletchley Park in order to work out where you should be sitting.
I love this solution from Sarah and James’ winter wedding at Kelham House in Nottinghamshire. The vintage-style heart shaped card holder can be purchased from Amazon – and it’s a steal for £12.95. The printed cards feature the beautifully elegant tree and birds emblem that featured on all of Sarah and James’ wedding stationery, and correspond with their matching card on the table itself. Plus it didn’t just look good – the guests were able to find their place with the minimum of fuss or effort.
There’s a lot to like about this stylish table plan. Just remember, when dressing your wedding venue, sometimes less is more. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
