"Darling, darling I simply just love Tiffany's!" Ms Golightly [aka Audrey Hepburn] was onto something in the classic film, and one of our all-time favourites, 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'. Her infatuation with the jewellers and endearing nature has had women everywhere swooning for diamonds and class for decades. Infuse your special day with the unmistakable charm and sophistication that comes so effortlessly to Holly Golightly and create a day to remember...
The classic Tiffany blue shade should act as the base of your styling - a hue that goes oh so beautifully with silver and white! The colour reminds one of the excitement and glamour that comes with receiving a little special something in a lovely Tiffany & Co. box. To create a theme, it's a fabulous idea to scatter pearls along your tables as centrepieces and to use faux Tiffany & Co. boxes as favours filled with deliciously delectable cupcakes.

It’s the day young girls spend their childhood planning. But like all young girls, we didn’t realise the hard – but fun + totally worth it– work that actually went into planning every detail of a wedding. Which brings me to my point – take a seat + let's talk wedding reception set-up, or more specifically - how do you choose between using long or round tables?! The answer? Well you’re a bride, decisions don’t come easy, but hopefully we can make it a little easier for you.
The vibe of your wedding reception greatly depends on how the evening is organised + one of the easiest ways to make your party feel welcoming + warm is with your wedding tables. Don’t doubt its ability to transform your venue of choice ladies – whether you’re having an intimate setting or a lavish affair, your set-up + styling plays a major role.
The three magic words when it comes to influencing your table design
decision; say it with me ladies - venue size, centrepiece + interaction!
Consider the sizing of the venue + which table style would allow you to
efficiently utilise the space, along with what centrepiece design you
are crushing over.
This one is the classic choice, if you are trying to achieve that timeless feel then this is definitely the way to go. As long as your centrepieces are cooperating, your guests can easily mingle with one another across the table, along with those seated to their left + right. Each round table takes a single centrepiece + round table cloths are easily accessible, coming in many sizes + colours – hello money saver!!
For a less traditional look, try mixing small + large sized tables for an eclectic feel + this way you can accommodate for the different sized groups on your guest list - it’s a win-win for everyone. One downside however, in a smaller space it is much harder to fit a large number of round tables as they don’t neatly fit against straight-edged walls + corners. So if you are short on space, this may not be the option for you + beau.
The long rectangle table is your more modern choice + a formal dining dream which has gained popularity amongst brides + grooms. Mingling opportunities for your guests are about the same as those on a round table – although those at either end of the table might have to shout to engage with one another. Creating a regally intimate atmosphere, the straightedges modernize these tables + work really well in both larger + smaller spaces.
We recommend choosing a few smaller, but striking centrepieces [taper candles, foliage runners] placed in a row down the centre of the table or why not try a hanging centrepiece filled with luscious foliage + florals. This style however may be a little annoying for those guests who are seated towards the middle of the table. Why? Could you imagine walking around the whole table just to use the bathroom or boogie it down on the dance floor. If a guest cancels last minute or is a no show, then the seating chart gets little thrown off and can be noticed as an empty seat.
BOA TIP: If you honestly cannot decide over both of these gorgeous options, why not combine both? We are all for bending the rules of tradition, who says you need just one table type – not us! There’s room for all of them at your table [pun intended].
