Last month, I identified pretty runners as a trend we’ll be seeing lots of in 2014. While many of these will be lace for vintage-loving brides, we’re also seeing some gorgeous sparkly sequin runners coming through (and not just runners, full tablecloths, in all their glittery glory!). You’d think this would all be a bit much, but I have to say, each time I see one of these tables, it makes my magpie heart do a little hop, skip and a jump. And why not? It’s your wedding. Even your tables should get to wear their party dresses, right? So today I’ve rounded up some of my favourite sequin runners, as well as a few suggestions for bringing a bit of sparkle to the table if you don’t want to go the whole hog or if it’s out of the budget.
Love me a bit of sparkly chevron!
A runner not enough sparkle for you? These brides and grooms have gone all out in the sequin department. Swoonage!
On the other hand, if you’d like to add a bit of glitter but not commit entirely, or if the budget doesn’t allow, here are some easy ways to add just a touch of fairy dust. You could choose to accent just one table – your main table perhaps, or the cake or dessert table.Or try a bit of glitter on a runner instead of along the whole thing (love those table numbers!). Sequin napkins also look amazing (although not sure how practical they are for actually wiping your hands!). Or you could try what we did on the Sparkle & Blush shoot a couple of years ago and use glitter board at each place setting instead of fabric – easy and sweet.
