Need receipes for transfoming a netural reception space into the beautiful scene you have in your head? WeddingWire’s FallBook 2014 will walk you through four key areas that are often overlooked — the welcome table, the lounge, the bar, and the sweetheart table — and show you how to outfit each according to three different styles, using rental furniture and shoppable accessories.

Been there, seen that — numbering each of your reception tables one through let’s say 25 might be the traditional go-to choice, but you don’t have to go that route! Feel free to steal some of our recently-married couples ideas of oh-so brilliant names like robin (birds), recess (school-themed), daffodil (flowers), dewey (beaches), farenheit 451 (books), charlotte (cities), sycamore (trees), or the notebook (movies) here.
Your reception tables are where your guests will be spending the most time during your entire wedding, so why not put a little personality into your place settings? Little did you know, there’s more to it than just a china, flatware, glassware, linens, and menu cards. Get creative with the rentals you have available to you. All it takes is important extras like on-theme objects, fun favors, and patterned linens. Read more ideas here.
Table numbers are an essential reception element: They are usually displayed at the center of each dinner table to help guests identify their assigned seats. But you don’t have to stick to basic (or boring) cards. Instead, use them as an opportunity to build upon your wedding’s overall sense of style. To help you get inspired, our Decor Editor has transformed these ‘tops with unexpected and not to mention affordable ideas such as petite paintings, nail heads, balloons, lucite, buttons, and chains.
