Wedding Table Settings

I wanted to change the décor in the formal dining something with my dishes.   We rarely eat in this room, so when I do a tablescape,   I can leave it up for a while and  enjoy it!   I decided with June weddings right around the corner,  I would do a wedding table.

I picked up  these  linen and lace paper plates in the wedding section at HL  (50% off).   I thought they would make a pretty table setting....not a wedding setting....just a regular one.    BUT, after I got them home,  I changed my mind and did a wedding table!  

I layered each place setting with a white ironstone charger, linen & lace paper plate,  and a rose pattered salad plate.   I used matching rose plates, teacups & saucers at my place settings,  but it would have been just as lovely to use mix and match pieces.
Each setting is different.....this one has a silver fork, spoon, and butter knife   The Mr & Mrs wooden sign came from Kirklands and the sweet wedding couple is from my collection.
This place setting has a gold fork, spoon , and knife.
 At this setting,  I have a pink rose paper napkin on the left...a linen and lace paper napkin on the right,   and a linen and lace cloth napkin in the center.     I wanted to show the different options out there for someone planning a wedding!
At this setting,  I have a wood Happily Ever After sign....$7.95 at Kirklands..... a cute Bear Couple from my collection ......a wedding cake candle from a yard sale .25.....and a vintage crystal goblet from my mom and dad's wedding dishes.  
This setting has a vintage Bride and Groom from my collection and a small silk Brides bouquet from Michaels.

 I wanted to show an inexpensive option for table numbers by using a yard sale picture frame (.25)     I cut a piece of card board to fit the circle frame and painted it with blackboard paint.    At the far left of the photo,  you can see a little more expensive blackboard option that I purchased at HL.
I think details and little added touches will make a very special table for the wedding party!
I found these big rings at the after Christmas sale at Pier One....thought they would make great napkin rings!
I hope if you are planning a wedding anytime in the future,   you were able to get a few ideas that you can use from my wedding table.   I have the formal dining room decorated in a wedding theme for the summer and will share more wedding ideas with you later!
