OPTION 1 (rectangular table)
Using a marsala or burgundy table cloth, then adding greeneries, can make this burgundy and greenery wedding design much easier to execute. You can use different varieties of greeneries.
🌿 PRO TIP: If you are using faux greeneries, choose greeneries with a much muted tone as opposed to bright greens. Also, cut the stems short. Don’t let them run long. Show less of the plastic stems as much as you can. ALSO ENSURE THAT YOU CHOSE GREENERIES THAT LOOK AS NATURAL AS POSSIBLE. Don’t select ones that look very plastic-y.
To add to the tablescape, add as much candles as you can. Mix it with votive and floating candles with varying heights.
To add some drama, fill a small vase with burgundy roses, cut very short, only a show very short part of the stem. (even silk / faux or fake roses will work well!
Achieve this burgundy and greenery wedding design, you can highlight the greens and lovely dark red blooms, which is why we chose to use white chiviari chairs, white matte linen for the tables and white matte napkins.
For the centerpiece, we used a tall white vase and filled it with fresh lush foliage. Mini burgundy rose bundles were placed in short clear glasses alongside floating tealight candles to set the romantic mood.
Clear white glassware and silver flatware were used. Favour bags in burgundy that matched with the flowers, were also placed on the table to tie up with the overall setting.
For the menu, a super-easy-to-do tented printouts were used, while small wood card stands held the printed table numbers.
A theme, like this burgundy and greenery wedding design, could be simple and uncomplicated but remain magical when you combine the right elements that compliment each other.
🌹 VASE: If you can’t find a solid-colored vase, you can use a clear vase (from your discount store) and spray paint it white—a no-sweat DIY! Also perfect for hiding the stems of the greeneries!
🌹 MENU and PLACE CARDS: For the place cards, all you need to do is to pick the right type of paper, thick enough so that it stands on its own when you stick the top part of it with a double sided tape (see photo above). Then stick together (top part only). If you’re planning to print them out, use a font that compliments your invitation.
