There are so many big things to consider when planning your wedding (venues, seating plans, decorations and catering to name a few) so today we’re going to concentrate on just one aspect of your wedding planning – table decorations. And more specifically, how to decorate tables for a beautiful vintage wedding theme.
Tables are the perfect place to add special little touches to tie your theme together and impress your guests. Just take a look our lovely ideas we’ve gathered from our vintage lace wedding range for inspiration and if there’s anything you’d like for your own wedding, you can pick it up in our online shop.
Lace-style place cards for each guest
You can’t have a vintage wedding without lace and bird-shaped place cards like these ones from our Vintage Lace range would add a true touch of elegance to each place setting. They’re laser cut out of cardboard and slot onto the edge of each glass for a modern take on a vintage classic. Plus they’d be a lovely little memento for each guest to pop in a frame as a souvenir of the day.
A cupcake at each place setting
No doubt your guests will be feeling peckish by the time they make it to the reception, and a cute little cupcake waiting for them at their place settings would be a nice thoughtful gesture for your loved ones.
We adore these white lace cupcake wraps, particularly since you don’t have to bake your cupcakes directly in them. Just order some nice pre-made ones and pop them inside. You could even serve them as dessert with a buffet-style menu or as a treat later on in the night.
Scatter the table with petals
Confetti is a wedding staple but it’s such a shame to have it strewn all over the floor when it can be so pretty! Delphinium petal confetti like this would look lovely scattered across your tables as a really low-cost vintage table decoration.
Add a touch of vintage elegance with pearl garlands
Another way to keep your table decorations on theme is with pearl garlands like this. This vintage wedding table idea will add a real whimsical and romantic touch to your reception and pearls will look lovely stylishly draped over your tables and chairs.

Top your wedding cake with bunting
Bunting will forever be the king of all things quaint and cake bunting is a really low-cost way to give your cake a unique look and tie it into the vintage theme. This ‘Mr and Mrs’ or ‘Just Married’ cake bunting would look gorgeous on the top tier of your cake – don’t underrate keeping things simple!
Keep your cards safe in a birdcage card holder
A postbox is a brilliant way to keep all your wedding cards in one place and we love the idea of staying on theme with a birdcage vintage wedding card holder like this. It’ll keep all your cards safe during the reception and serve as a beautiful vintage decoration too!
