As white weddings fade into the distance, we are seeing more and more modern couples adding colour into their wedding. Which means it is a very exciting time to be getting married. Colour is a way to express yourself so it's fantastic for adding personality and helps you create a vibe for your day.
Often couples are scared of adding colour as they think it has to be bold and bright, but this is just not true. It can also be soft and dreamy, dark and moody, or fun and joyful. It's all about using colour to help you create an atmosphere.
If you are decorating a blank canvas venue, you are going to need some colour to bring it to life, so I'm sure you will enjoy these ideas for adding some colour to your wedding tables.
The great thing is that you can pick and choose how much colour you want to add into your design.

Charger Plates

Charger plates are a great splash of colour on the table. You might have white linens or a plain wood tables that need a bit of colour to break up the plain background.


Napkins are a small detail that can add such a difference to the look of your place settings. They can really help pull in all your other decor elements together, while just adding a small colourful touch.


If you are not wanting to add to much colour to your tables, adding some pops of colour with candles is a great way of adding a little bit of colour in your design.



We are seeing the trend of coloured glassware everywhere these days. There are some colourful vases and candle holders in amazing colours to choose from to help you create a fun and unique look to your tables.


Table Runners

Table runners are a great way to add lots of colour at once. And they can help make your other table decor really stand out from the table.

Chair Sashes

Chair sashes are great for adding lots of colour to your wedding venue. They can help tie all the elements together and give your overall theme a stronger identity as they are very visible helping to make an impact.



Flowers are a great way to add colour, they can really add lots of interest as they will have different tones and patterns to them.


Your wedding stationery is also a great place to add some colour. You can incorporate all the other colours in your design so everything feels cohesive. With my stationery designs I offer a variety of colour foils to choose from, from vibrant hot pinks and purples, to royal blue and emerald green, to softer lilacs, pale pink and mint green. It's a great way of adding your wedding design onto the plate.
