Do you feel overwhelmed by the look of the tables for your wedding reception? Start with the anchor – the place setting. China, silverware and stemware form the core of the wedding table and dictate all of your other choices. Simple, white china can be accented in endless ways and is a sophisticated way of presenting food.
On the other end of the spectrum, unmatched china can be stylish and innovative as long as the pairings are deliberate; I recommend this approach only for smaller weddings. Coordinate the silverware and stemware with the china, keeping in mind necessities based on the menu you have selected. For example, your silverware needs may include steak knives or chopsticks. Stemware is an important statement of formality (or not). A formal wedding will include four pieces of crystal at every seat: a glass for red wine, a glass for white wine, a water glass and a champagne flute. I adore shades of tinted crystal, which add subtle drama to the wedding tables. -XO, Vera
Natasha Soto-Albors knew she wanted a gown reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour, and as soon as she slipped on Vera Wang’s Farrah design she knew she found the one. She decided to add a satin and crystal sash to the waist for a bit of sparkle, and a short birdcage veil with a tulle flower and feather comb finished off her big-day look.
