Las Vegas brides, let’s leave behind winter’s chill and embrace the warmth of spring this season! If you plan to host a spring wedding, gather inspiration for your reception décor through these tablescapes. All these styles were featured at last week’s popular Veils, Tails, & Cocktails bridal show at ARIA Resort, and local professionals created each of these designs.
When you find a style that suits your Las Vegas weddings, take note of who created it. Then contact that vendor, and see how she can combine your favorite design with your own ideas for a custom creation that’s all your own!
Filled with the rich, dark textures of many winter weddings, this display by Jovani Linens and Floral Design proves that spring brides don’t have to choose light, airy color schemes. If you’re a bold bride, then exchange the traditional white for a black base. Then pair it with a bright shade of your favorite color, like red, purple, fuchsia, or turquoise. To complete the look, add wide-based candles, empty wire vases, crystal beads, and a dramatic centerpiece at each table.
Burst into a classic spring theme with this traditional table design by Opulent Events. Select a soft green print for the tablecloth, and balance this with a table runner in a complementary color, like light pink or mauve. Add mason jars for water glasses with a natural feel, an edible party favor on the napkins, LED votive candles near the centerpiece, and a full arrangement of fresh flowers in a burnished vase.
Wedding décor doesn’t stop with reception tables. This vignette by Naakiti Floral Design displays the perfect décor for an outdoor cocktail area. Rent an aged barrel, fill its top with wine corks, and complete the creative table with a secure glass top. Add an antique lantern with fresh flowers and dried moss as a sweet, simple centerpiece. Consider vibrant chairs and cushions to complement the natural wood of nearby benches and barrels.
For a formal occasion or evening ceremony, feel free to embrace deep tones and rich fabrics. While navy chair linens provide formality, the playful side of spring is seen in the colorful, paisley-print tablecloth. Top this tablecloth with a sheer white overlay, complete with fabric rosettes. Then finish the design with a few light touches, like green napkins across crisp white plates, fresh daisies in ceramic vases, adorable dessert party favors, and a centerpiece that features your favorite fruits.
As we enter this season, choose plenty of fresh flowers to accentuate new buds and full blooms. Try soft colors, like shades of blue, pink, or green, for your table linens, chair coverings, and florals. Also, play with vases of various sizes, keeping tall vases thin (see centerpieces) and short vases wide at their bases (see accent vases near place settings). Lastly, use crystal, glass, or silver accents to show the transformation from winter to spring.
While flowers are often the best way to convey spring’s rebirth, you can also use architectural shapes to make a statement. Instead of pastel colors, opt for neutral tones, including this season’s popular shades of gray, charcoal, and champagne. To complement this style, favor of marble countertop tables, stone sculptures, and wrought iron accents. Finish the design with uplighting in an accent color (like red, pink, purple, blue or green) against cream linens.
