Whatever your flower and decor budget is, I think one of the best uses of that money is through incorporating major focal points throughout your event design - and an easy one is your head table! Since everyone’s eyes will naturally flick to your head table or sweetheart table throughout the evening anyways, you might as well make it the centrepiece of the entire reception.
An added benefit of creating a design focal point is that when one area stands out, you can scale back in other areas. So, if you’re working with a limited budget, adding more drama to your head table may allow you to cut back on the centrepieces.
I’ve got some real cool head table designs in the works for 2019 weddings - can’t wait to show them off! Dream catchers, neon flowers, greenery accents…all sorts of great stuff.
Here are a few ideas!
Hanging Floral Installations
You know I love a hanging floral installation, though of course whether or not you can incorporate this design style depends completely on your venue. Most venues in Winnipeg don’t actually have a way for us to hang anything behind the head table BUT there are a few that do have this capacity, and I love to do it up! I particularly love this style because I think it looks amazing in photos - I love seeing those shots of the couples kissing underneath it :)
Low Floral Arrangements
It’s never a bad idea to keep the design low to the table, as long as there is enough texture and movement throughout the entire piece. Whether it’s one centralized arrangement or several low but full floral arrangements spaced along the table, you make a major statement. I personally prefer more floral-heavy designs (obviously) but a greenery garland is a great way to go, too!
There are multiple ways you could go about a floral backdrop - tall pieces behind you, individual hanging pieces or strands of flowers, or a full-on floral wall.
Looking for a Wedding Floral and Event Designer in Winnipeg?
My 2020 waitlist has already been started, and couples interested in full event and floral design will be contacted first about their dates. I offer a limited number of dates for event design each year, in order to allow me to work closely with each couple. Combining event and floral design is the perfect option for couples who live out of town, or couples who feel they need a little extra help in creating the visual plan for their wedding day.
