This year, wedding reception decor is getting a bit more personal. From funky centerpieces to boldly-colored chair covers and everything else in between, couples are finding unique ways to infuse elements of their personality into the look and feel of the wedding reception . Here, we list seven wedding reception decor trends that will leave your guests breathless.
Cultural Cues: Take bits of your own ethnic culture and put it on display, such as paper lantern luminaries, origami centerpieces or tribal symbols on dinner menus.
Conversation Tables: Buffets are taking a backseat to conversation-friendly dining. Long tables allow for more interaction and face time with other wedding guests. Take it a step further by naming each table after an endearing element of your personality (location of your first date, your hometown, college mascot, etc.).
Emblems of Love: Monograms were a bit hit with weddings in 2008 and 2009. Today, it’s all about the emblem-an icon or design that signifies your union that you can use to incorporate into everything from the invitations to the napkins and even the ice sculpture.
