Let’s get started with some tantalising Rich Red & Gold Autumn Wedding Styled Shoot Inspiration table settings.
The furniture you use does not have to be too flamboyant to achieve a coherent eye-catching wedding day theme. Simply choose a dark coloured wooden table with a beautiful dark grainy-wooden texture ( see picture below), with gold chairs and start using your key colours in particular areas to make the maximum effect.
By using tarnished, dull-gold, onyx black, deep plum, subtle maroon, bright reds, black and gold and burnt orange let me show you how to create an unforgettable wedding day.
Use the same maroon table runners and lay them over your tables with gathers to create more texture and romance. The best place to get table linens is Silk and Willow with linens ranging from $65.00 to $ 400, see here or for a more crinkled fine art wedding look, see Frou Frou Chic’s range with prices ranging from $ 92 here. Also, Seidenband has some sheer silk tables runners, see here.
Before we dived into some super table setting ideas, let’s look at some flower installation ideas. These are vastly growing in popularity and many couples have an extra part of their budget set aside for this!
So what is a flower installation I hear you say?
It is when a large mass of flowers either dangles happily from the ceiling, a large light, or a large wall feature. In essence the flowers are all placed skilfully together to create a large mass of artistic flowers that whacks quite a WOW factor and leaves quite an impression.
Flower installations can encircle a doorway, above the area where you exchange your vows, hover over over your bride and groom’s table, over the wedding cake table outside where you expect to take your photographs or somewhere in the wedding venue that you might like to highlight.
Table settings ohhhh table setting, how we love you ooohhh table settings…
The flowers you choose to use can make an enormous impact. Seductive red roses paired with furry orange textured flowers, rich deep plum and branches of rosemary, can add a dramatic burst of colour, while gold candle sticks with white, gold, and bright orange candles and small gold cups and clear crystal glasses add a touch of undeniable romance, fit for a queen.
How about some height? Use taller flower displays in key areas on your wedding day, or throughout your entire table area. It helps build drama and creates a great impression instantly, not to mention your guests will be able to see each other for a chat!
How about using fruit throughout your table settings? It not only looks great, but adds another layer of elegance and colour, tastes great and gives your guests something to snack on while they wait for the food to be served.
Top each table off with some hand painted wedding stationery, these dark sultry black table numbers with gold calligraphy from Crimson Letters (seen in the picture above). See here for a few other table numbers ideas, or here for the full portfolio, you can have anything custom designed for you!
Finish your table setting off with some enticingly elegant black tie wedding menus, also from Crimson Letters, with lovingly made gold calligraphy on black artisan paper. Not only will they match the decor beautifully but they will also impress your guests as set the high tone of your wedding.
For the most beautiful fine art range of artisan wedding candles, have a look at Bark and Berry, see here.

Start planning your invitation designs now – Even if you haven’t booked the venue or finalised your guest list, there’s nothing to stop you from thinking about potential designs and gathering inspiration pronto. What type of artistic style do you love? Maybe it’s classical, art deco or modern. When you search keep an eye out for designers who specialise in your preferred style.
Confirm your budget – Does your budget match your design vision? You may be able to find a designer who creates simple yet chic designs at a good price, but if you covet extravagant invitations with lavish embellishments then a more generous budget is needed.

Ask questions enquiring about their methods and materials, design process, timescales and make sure they are easily contactable. At Crimson Letters I work closely with the couple and stay in communication with them throughout the entire design process.
