How to make an origina Tableau de Mariage
First of all, let’s start with the question: what is a Tableau de Mariage?
It is a large billboard, on which the names of your guests are written.
Usually placed on an easel, positioned at the entrance to the room where the reception will take place, in order to direct your guests to the place assigned to them.
Each guest will be assigned a table, usually with no more than 10 people, which will have a corresponding number or name.
Here you can free your imagination and choose a series of names that are special to you or most original: from the theme of “Aromatic plants” for example to “Basil”, “Sage”, Rosemary “etc. to the theme of “Travel”, then names of places already visited eg. “Barcelona”, “Paris”, “Maldives”, perhaps even accompanied by photos. The princesses fairy tales are a classic, like “Cinderella”, but also a “Music” theme, with the titles of your favorite songs.
If, on the other hand, you want something more refined we can opt for a frame with gold details, or for a romantic style a simple wooden frame with handwritten names, or for a country theme small wooden boxes with sunflowers and photographs of the couple.
The choice of the theme of the Tableau de Mariage must be established immediately, from the very beginning of the preparations, in order to define the guidelines that will be maintained on all the floral arrangements.
There are many ideas in addition to those we have listed: we can be inspired by the style of the location, or get help from a calligrapher or a printer to have tags with an original print or simply create special placeholders, for example with small and pretty pine cones, perfect if the wedding takes place in the winter, or use corks, glasses of champagne or small succulent plants.To learn more, go to the article: “How to make a perfect imperial table”.
