An oft-overlooked part of a wedding reception that actually makes a huge impact on the overall presentation are wedding linens. How you choose to dress up your tables at your reception sets the tone for the evening and establishes a foundation with which to incorporate other decorations. There are hundreds of styles to choose from, and many couples opt for mixing and matching table linens such as having a different one for the sweetheart table. We asked the design manager at La Tavola Linens to offer her insight to help couples on choosing from the latest of trends in wedding linens!
We are seeing a textural revolution in weddings linens with a rise in modern, edgy lace and cut outs. Cut-outs bring visual interest to the table giving life to neutral colors. Velvet is a fabric that has become super popular, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon. Incorporating velvet – even with just napkins – gives the table a luxe, rich look and feel. Color is going to take center stage, with everything from super bright colors to a lot of chartreuse green. Even neutrals will be upgraded with shades of tan, off-white and metallic. In the prints world, artistic painterly designs will be popular. For a little more glam look, we expect to see subtle sequins with overlays to add more dimension to the table.
Whatever your style or taste, there is a wedding linen to fit the overall mood and theme of your big day!
