or censor your thoughts.


One great way to get some ideas is to use the power of the internet. If you spend a little time at your favorite internet search engine you can often find pictures of what other people have done for their wedding table ideas. Another resource is wedding and bride magazines. If you start planning early enough this research stage can really help you narrow down your ideas. Every time you see something that catches your eye and you think to yourself hey that is cute cut it out or copy and print it. Then keep a big folder for all of your scraps of research. This is what many artists do when they are working on a piece of art and decorating your wedding tables is an art and not much different. The important thing with this step is to not filter anything out or censor your thoughts.

If you find something you like even if it doesn’t match your themes go ahead and cut it out and save it. Then later after you have assembled a good deal of research material you can lay them all out somewhere on a big table and look over them with a friend or family member. Talk about each one and start to analyze what you like about them. Keep a list of things that you notice and like about each picture. By the end you will have your list of wedding table ideas already made. It will then just be a matter of putting things together and firming up the ideas.

As you can see coming up with wedding table ideas can be very easy if you start early enough and take the time to plan. Just make sure you don’t get yourself in a bind by doing this at the last minute.
