Five of UAE’s leading wedding planners and stylers shared their recent tablescapes and centrepieces to inspire you.
As these challenging times affect the wedding planning of our brides and grooms, we feel now more than ever it is important to encourage wedding styling inspiration! This week we joined forces with the wonderful team at Weddings Online and reached out to some of the UAE wedding industry’s leading planners and stylers, to see their recent tablescapes and centrepieces.

Royal Blue & Opulent Gold
For this royal wedding in Oman, our team worked alongside Matthew Oliver Weddings in March this year for a royal wedding in Oman. For the overall look we mixed rectangular and round tables to create an interesting and diverse space. This concept also helps separate groups, which is what we are going to be focusing on with new regulations coming into place post-Covid-19. Smaller table numbers will be crucial from now on, so using three levels of plates will create consistency and substance. Also, smaller touches such as gold cutlery and bold colours for napkins and glassware will attract the eye and diminish any empty tablespace.
As many clients may likely feel more comfortable with an outdoor space next season, we are expecting to continue to create tables with overhead décor to encourage a more intimate environment. This may extend as far as an entire event ceiling décor made up of lights, fabric, greenery and/or flowers.
We believe the use of mirrors will play a bit part in the table setting this season, as the reflective surface will mirror centrepieces and table accessories, making the table look fuller and more extravagant, which will work well with reduced guest numbers.
Even though wedding numbers will likely need to reduce next season, we will still need to consider decorating a large space. Centrepieces will always play an important part of the design, and dramatic and beautiful, tall floral features will enhance the guest experience and general ambiance. Playing with linen patterns and textures will also help greatly to enrich the table setting.
