How to style your wedding table setting the Wedgwood way

When it comes to your wedding day, every detail matters, and that includes what tableware and decorations you use for your wedding table setting. We’ve created an inspirational table setting guide to help you plan your dream wedding table setting.

Choose a theme or colour pallete for your wedding table

You can either create a theme for your entire wedding day to follow, or simply choose a colour pallete that you love for the dresses, decoration and tableware. Below are a few of our inspired suggestions:

White foundations with a splash of colour

Use a base layer of white fine bone china (such as Gio) to create striking contrast in your wedding table setting. Layer your favourite patterns and colours on top of this base layer to add a daring splash of colour and character.

White and gold

A traditional colour pairing, a white and gold wedding table setting can be taken to the next level with extra colour accents, such as the cobalt blues of Renaissance Gold or Lace Gold by Vera Wang, or by adding stunning centrepieces such as Magnolia Blossom.

Create a table bathed in Wedgwood blue, our iconic colour that inspired the sets and costumes of Bridgerton. Collections such as Magnolia Blossom, Renaissance Gold, Hibiscus and Florentine Turquoise will add this timeless blue to your wedding table setting.

How to set your wedding table

There are many things to consider when creating your wedding table setting. Here are just a few suggestions on how to set your wedding table in Wedgwood style:

  • Mix and match plate shapes and sizes: Use a variety of dinner plates, side plates, chargers and platters to create an interesting look on your table. Mix round plates, octagonal plates and square trays for that extra eclectic touch. Read our guide to plate shapes and sizes to help you in creating the perfect table setting.
  • Don’t forget the drinkware: If you’re serving your favourite bubbly, then crystal champagne flutes will elevate your wedding table setting. Or if afternoon tea is more your style, consider laying your table with teacup and saucers and teapots filled with your favourite flavoured tea.
  • Stunning floral centrepieces: Create showstopping centrepieces for your wedding tables by filling vases with fresh, seasonal blooms. Read our guide on vase shapes and sizes to learn how to get the most from your vases.

  • Fine bone china and Jasperware vases: Add beautiful texture and colour to your tables with Jasperware, such as our Jasper Folia vases  and Magnolia Blossom vases. Or, create an unforgettably luxurious centrepiece with our fine bone china Hummingbird vases.
  • Keep it light with candles: Candles are a great way to add mesmerising natural light and accents of colour to your wedding table centrepiece. Filled candles, tealight holders  and lithophanes are perfect for adding candlelight to your table.
  • Statement bowls: Fill a fine bone china statement bowl or sculptural bowl with pot pouri or fresh flowers for a simply lush centrepiece.
