Table centrepiece ideas for your Whitsunday wedding (part 1)

If you are having a wedding in the Whitsundays, your table decorations will be a focus of your theme. Here are some of our favourite ideas that are so on trend right now.

Table overlays

We, at I Do Events Whitsundays, have had these beautiful new crochet lace table overlays made, for this exact reason! Aren’t they divine? The latte colour allows hints of crisp white linen to peek through, and the neutral tone is easily complemented by any colour combination of your choice. Dusky pinks and creams go well, as do vivid corals and yellows, or any shade of blue, or keep the remaining décor white for a clean timeless style.

Symbolising a pair of lovebirds, a birdcage makes a charming feature for your wedding. You can use them as centrepieces on every table, or have one large birdcage as a wedding wishing well. They can be embellished with flowers to complement your theme and bouquet, and illuminated by candles.

Rustic wooden platters

Rustic wooden platters make delightful wedding centrepieces, accompanied by hessian, ribbon, and rustic flowers such as soft cream roses and baby’s breath. We have a huge range of eclectic glassware to use as vases or candleholders to complete the look.

Giant balloons

We’ve just launched these extravagant giant balloon wedding centrepieces, covered in tulle, with fairy lights leading up to the top, which can be customised to suit any colour theme. Talk about a talking point! These can be used alone creating amazing impact at first glance, or teamed with a lower centrepiece to create fullness and depth.

More birdcage ideas

The shape of a birdcage lends itself to a wedding cake perfectly! This gorgeous number is by Cakes by Krishanthi. See the whole photo blog of birdcage wedding cakes from here. Carry the lovebirds theme throughout your whole wedding from the ‘save the date’ cards and invitations to the table plan.

And for you…

The birdcage veil was first made popular in the 1940s, but it’s making a resurgence now. Isn’t it sweet? We think so! We found this classically elegant wedding dress from Essense of Australia on, and these gorgeous clutches would make delightful bridesmaid gifts from PrettyPositano on Etsy.
