When creating a wedding décor scheme that you can be proud of, your wedding tables will sit centre stage. As well as designing show-stopping centrepieces for use throughout your wedding venue, incorporating runners into your tablescapes can unlock many advantages as Colorado Party Rentals details:

“Table runners are a fantastic way to accentuate your wedding reception tables. Use table runners to highlight your theme, make your tables more elegant, and add an extra decorative element to your wedding… Table runners can make every theme more complete. The material you use for a table runner can match any theme, whether you have a formal, glamorous, rustic, or nature-themed wedding.”

Deciding on a table runner that’s the perfect complement to your wider wedding décor theme isn’t easy. But with 2022’s wedding trends being more creative than ever, anything goes! Here we share just five of our favourite table runner ideas, looks that might just be the perfect fit for your wedding reception.

1. The humble doily

Lace and crochet aren’t just stunning material choices for your wedding ensemble, they make beautiful table runners too. Particularly fitting for rustic weddings, doily-inspired table runners add texture, interest and a unique pattern to wedding tables. They also provide a great contrast to wilder, more rugged, natural displays and arrangements. Macramé can also be used to achieve a similar, very on-trend result.

Be eclectic with your doily-inspired runners by selecting a different pattern for each and every one of your tables.

2. The outdoors in

Going au naturel is a popular choice for spring and summer weddings, and the great outdoors can inspire your table runner design too. But forget dainty blooms when creating your quirky, nature-inspired table runner. Choose moss as your primary material!

A carpet of moss offers a tactile table runner that looks fantastic with arrangements containing driftwood (great for beach-themed weddings too), fruit, berries, antlers, foraged greenery, and wildflowers.

3. The playful pattern

Add a pop of colour and texture by using patterned runners on your wedding tables. There are some beautifully patterned runners out there, so you’re guaranteed to find a design that suits your wedding theme and wows your guests, whether you go monochrome or bright.

4. The true show-stopper

No wedding would be complete without a touch of sparkle, so it makes sense to go all out with the sequins when choosing your table runners. Glitzy and glamorous, sequin runners can be found in classic metal shades or on-trend jewel tones to add some extra pizzazz to your wedding tables.

Team your sparkly table runners with greenery for a table display that just has to be touched. Alternatively, incorporate more shine by topping your sequin table runner with mirrored and metallic accessories.

5. The glow up

Lighting plays a vital role in creating the romantic ambience every couple wants on their wedding day. Add that same magic to your wedding tables by using string lighting mixed with neutral linen and classic greenery as a table runner. It’s certain to leave your guests starry eyed especially as the evening draws in.
