Wedding Place Setting Ideas and Inspiration!

Wedding Place Setting Ideas and Inspiration with Hampton Event Hire

Choosing the perfect combination of pieces for your wedding table settings can be a little overwhelming without knowing which items work well together! Your crockery, cutlery, glassware and even your dining tables themselves should all complement each other to create a cohesive overall look that best suits your wedding vision.

Recently on the blog we shared some of our top table styling tips for creating beautiful and practical wedding receptions. And after receiving such great feedback on the post, this week we wanted to share some modern place setting inspiration and show you how to achieve a few different looks using our range of tableware!

Inspired by some of our recent real weddings and styled shoots, today we’re featuring some of our favourite table decor combinations, from blush linen napkins to amber glassware and statement dining tables. Keep reading as we show you how to style some of our favourite new products, with some beautiful place setting inspiration to get you started!

BLUSH LINEN NAPKINS

Our beautiful blush linen napkins are a great statement piece and continue to be a favourite with our couples. If you’re looking to introduce a touch of blush pink into your place settings without going overboard, these napkins are the perfect subtle pop of colour.

We love seeing our blush linen napkins in action when paired with deep, moody tones, layered textures, fresh whites and a pop of gold. These napkins also work well with timber and rattan details for a more natural and relaxed look.

BLACK DINING TABLES

Our brand new black dining tables first made their debut at our Hampton Event Hire Open Day, and we’ve loved seeing them in use at some recent weddings ever since! These unique tables are best suited for modern and contemporary tablescapes, and are sure to make a statement for your reception styling,

We love pairing these sleek black tables with a monochrome palette, bold berry tones, and luxe gold details, with our white dinner plates, gold soho chairs and linen napkins providing the perfect contrast.

RATTAN CHARGER PLATES

A charger plate is one of the easiest ways to elevate your table styling, and our rattan chargers are ideal when it comes to creating an earthy and organic look.

These charger plates work well with a soft, neutral palette, particularly when it comes to fresh whites, greens and greys. We love layering these charger plates with our french dinner plates, linen napkins and crystal glassware for an elegant tablescape!

NAVY LINEN NAPKINS

For coastal or nautical-inspired tablescapes, we can’t go past our new navy linen napkins. This bold pop of navy works beautifully with a crisp white colour scheme, along with earthier textures like timber and rattan. Try to keep things fresh and modern when working with navy - wire details like our white soho dining chairs can help to complete this look.

BLACK DINNER PLATES

Our sleek black dinner plates are an ideal pick for modern and sophisticated table styling.

We love seeing our black plates in action with a chic monochrome palette, working well with our timber feasting tables, gold cutlery and black bentwood chairs. We recommend pairing these plates with a pop of colour through your floral arrangements or stationery to add some contrast into your setting.

AMBER GLASSWARE

For an eclectic, boho-luxe inspired place setting, our amber wine and water glasses are a beautiful addition to your table styling. Coloured glassware is always a stunning focal feature and looks incredible in reception photos - we love pairing this glassware with earthy textures, blush florals and metallic details.
