Twilight Inspired Wedding Tablescape

Today’s wedding feature is incredibly romantic and chic!

When Lina of A Stunning Affair and Heather of Events by Heather Ham first sent this over, I was immediately intrigued by the unique sound of the event… a “Twilight Themed Wedding“, and whether you’re a fan of the popular book series or not, chances are good that you’ll be visually inspired by all of this gorgeous eye candy!

Read on for TONS of beautiful images {shot by photographer Meg Perotti}, and all the creative details, as told by Lina.

(P.S. As an added bonus, there’s also a “Luxe  for Less” example that shows how to achieve the same look on a tighter budget!)

Our tablescape is based on one of the most romantic love stories… Twilight.

We chose elements from both the movie and book to capture the ideas for our Twilight themed wedding. The colors and elements are remeniscent of Forks, Washington, the outdoor setting for their breathtaking wedding reception.

For the main table we used a family style wooden table paired with wooden chairs.

Laying across the table was a custom lace runner made by Sashes for Love.

On top of the runner sat a variety of beautiful glass vases that held an assortment of flowers with different textures, hydrangea, roses, lisianthus, blueporum, dusty miller and touches of succulents.

In lieu of traditional candles holders, we wanted to do something a little different, we used two tall silver candelabras, glass vases with floating candles and apples as our candle holders. We purchased a candle carver, a tool that scoops out the center of the apple and leaves a perfect space for you to place a tea light candle (great diy project!).

The name of the table – “First Sight” – was taken from the first chapter of the first book of the Twilight Series.

At each place setting sat a white napkin enhanced with a brown satin ribbon and sparkly antique broach. Tucked into the napkin was a menu that doubled as a place card hand made by Calligraphy Katrina.

The Look for Less
We also decided to do a “Luxe for Less” look to show brides how they could take a high-end tablescape and interpret it into something more reasonable. Instead of the rented wooden tables, we used a standard 60” round table and draped it with a cotton poly linen in a shade of tan.

We used wooden folding chairs in an antique finish, apples as place cards, and a single candelabra with a few floral centerpieces for a similar effect as the main tablescape.”
