Wedding decor inspiration shoot by Kate's Lens Photography


We predicted that metallics would be hot for 2011 weddings. Not to pat ourselves on the backs or anything, but... we were spot on with this particular wedding trends prediction! Metallics can be incorporated in a variety of ways, from your wedding dress and accessories to your invitations to your chic wedding reception centerpieces.

Mary Kate of Kate's Lens Photography shared this incredible wedding table trends editorial shoot focusing on using metallics to give spark to your wedding reception decor. So I hope you're ready, because we're about to shift this metallic wedding trend into overdrive!

Today we feature four drool-worthy metallic tablescapes and styles, and tomorrow, we'll feature four more inspiring setups to really get your creative juices flowing!

1- Gold & Bright Don’t be afraid to pair gold accents with a bright pop of color. The vivid purple and green wedding color palette update the vintage place setting with modern flair!
Wedding flowers: Bright green viburnums with purple dendrobium orchids.
Tabletop items: Vintage gold-rimmed china with rose embellishments and gold utensils, vintage vase with gold accents, vintage antique tin, gold-rimmed Mikasa wine glasses.
Table linens: Orchestra linen with coordinating gold napkins.

2- Single Statement Piece Incorporate interesting items from thrift shops and antique stores. A single statement piece, like a vintage coffee carafe, not only adds to the d├ęcor, but is also a great conversation piece for the wedding guests!
Wedding flowers: Red roses and tulips, burgundy mini-callas, deep purple stock and seeded eucalyptus.
Tabletop items: Silver candlesticks, Lenox Venetian Lace china, antique coffee carafe, silver/blue vase and silver striped vase, tea holder.
Table linens: Godiva lace overlay on top of French Blue Linen with French Blue coordinating napkins.

3- Modern Blue & Silver Blue, lilac, and silver color combinations keep it tasteful, modern, and fresh!
Wedding flowers: Delicate blue sweetpeas, white ranunculus and white iris.
Tabletop items: Lenox Venetian Lace china, blue mercury glass vase, clear blue glass vase and large silver vase.
Table linens: Godiva lace overlay on top of French Blue Linen with Silver coordinating napkins.

4- Earthy Romance A natural basket with assorted wedding flowers gives an earthy undertone that softens an otherwise traditional wedding reception table setting!
Wedding flowers: Natural basket with white dendrobium orchids, pink tulips, pink hyacinth and moss accents.
Tabletop items: Vintage gold-rimmed chinaware with rose embellishments, vintage gold utensils.
Table linens: Songster Linen coupled with Dusty Rose coordinating napkins.
