Is your big day looming on the horizon and your table decor is lacking a personal touch? Or maybe you’re pitching in to help a loved one celebrate in style and you need some inspiration? Never fear! It’s Annie, and today I’ve rounded up six fun and unique projects you can create with your Silhouette machine to add that custom-made touch to a day that should be decidedly all about the special couple.
Let’s get your guests to their seats easily and stylishly. A detail sometimes overlooked, you can use bold or distinctive table numbers to really set the tone for your wedding table decor. These silhouette table numbers from Carly are classy and sophisticated…and would you believe they were created with just a few layers of cut cardstock? Find all of the details here.
If your wedding theme is a little more “rustic elegance”, then these wooden table numbers from UnOriginal Mom might be the perfect choice. Meredith combined rich walnut stain with gold adhesive vinyl for an earthy, but high-end look. Click here to find more gorgeous photographs and tips for a beautiful finish.
Now that your guests have found their table, the first thing they’ll notice is the place setting. With large, formal affairs like a wedding where the hosts can’t possibly greet every guest before the meal, the place setting is your way of personally inviting them to have a seat and prepare to have a wonderful, delicious time. So, let’s get personal(ized)!
Although Kayla created this place setting for her Thanksgiving meal, I think it works beautifully for a wedding too. Head over to this tutorial to see how she used Silhouette Glitter Heat Transfer Material on wood slices (yes, wood!) for a unique take on a place card that doubles as a special keepsake.
Curio users, I haven’t forgotten about you. Let your guests wonder how you could have possibly afforded to have everyone’s name engraved for their place setting by etching them yourself with Silhouette Metal Etching Sheets and Curio. Click here to find all of the details.
And don’t forget how easy it is to create beautiful printables in Silhouette Studio®. I designed those pretty custom menus myself too using gorgeous watercolor florals and a variety of fonts found in the Silhouette Design Store.
Once your guests have taken their seat, they’ll look up to see your beautiful centerpieces. Sure, flowers are the customary way to decorate wedding tables, but how about adding an extra touch to enhance their beauty and customize your decor just a bit more? This bird cage centerpiece from Kelly is romantic and pretty and perfect for elegant, fairytale, or even nature-themed weddings. Find the full tutorial here.
The most stunning centerpieces I have seen combine gorgeous fresh flowers with a little well-placed candlelight. Meredith from UnOriginal Mom took this concept a step further by customizing the votives for each table in fun and unique ways. Click here to see how she used heat transfer material to create these burlap wrapped votives for her sister’s woodland wedding.
And how cute are these votives customized for the happy couple with Silhouette Frosted Glass Vinyl? Peel and stick is the way to go if you’re trying to decorate tables for a large wedding, and these decals can add a pretty faux-etched look to lots of candles in no time.
I hope I’ve inspired you to add a little custom flair to your wedding tables with the help of the Silhouette CAMEO® or Silhouette Curio™. Handmade details like these can make a wedding day even more memorable for the special couple as well as the guests.
