When I planned my own wedding, oh so many years ago, the very first thing I put on my priority list was table decor. My game plan was to painstakingly create details for our two hundred and thirty guests, all in our very chic modern oceanside theme. There would be starfish napkin holders! And coral accents! But dreaming gave way to reality when I realized what it means to pull together a destination event for over two hundred people on a limited budget while holding down a full-time job. (Spoiler alert: It means you are not making two hundred napkin holders, ladyfriend.)
Looking back, I realize that you don’t need to invent extra projects to make your wedding stylish. You just need to figure out what elements you already need to have at your wedding, and then decide how to make those badass in your own way. One of the easiest ways to do this is with paper—especially the kind that does double duty as information and decor. Back when I was planning my wedding, the best we could hope for was a menu card that didn’t look like someone glued clipart to the top of cardstock. But these days you have Minted at your disposal, and if you haven’t taken the time to explore their indie-sourced designs yet, let me tell you, they are what my wedding decor dreams are made of.
In addition to having some of the most modern wedding invitations around, Minted takes your standard wedding accouterments like table numbers, place settings, and menus, and turns them into small works of art. And now, with the recently launched Minted weddings section, you can round out your shopping with things like table number holders for your table numbers. Or all the little one-off objects you waited until the last minute to procure (think: cake stand, card box, etc.). You can even use Minted’s free monogram maker to customize everything from your invitations to stickers to napkins.
I also recommend checking out Minted’s Wedding Color Library (you can see some of our favorite pieces here) which lets you shop gift packaging in a range of fresh wedding colors. But today we’ve partnered up with Minted to bring you some of our favorite chic, easy, and affordable table decor options.
Modern table decor
My favorite thing about Minted is that you can coordinate your paper goods without having to go full matchy-matchy. (Though, pretty much all of their designs are available in everything from invitations to place cards to programs, so if matchy-matchy is your thing, they’ve got you covered.) I love their more art-inspired abstract pieces. This table number design would totally stand out as a decor piece, and it would pair perfectly with this abstract wedding program.
Minimalist wedding table decor
It used to be that minimal was synonymous with boring. But Minted nails minimal day-of decor with strong typographic details. I like to pair minimal designs with natural accents like this marble cake stand and these greenery-inspired favor stickers to keep things modern and fresh.
Destination wedding table decor
Since I got married on the beach, nothing frustrates me more than destination wedding decor. So. Many. Seashells. But you can do destination wedding style without kitsch. I want these printed cocktail napkins for my everyday life. And this card box is stylish in a way that you could totally use after the wedding (hello new jewelry catchall).
Bohemian wedding table decor
This set might be my favorite of the bunch. Because sometimes the best theme for your wedding is “just a bunch of stuff I like.” These feather place cards give off fall vibes without screaming “we took a road trip just to see the leaves change color.” And I would totally use my wedding as an excuse to buy a bunch of these glass bottles.
So if you’re at the point in wedding planning where you’ve started moving things off your to-do list and onto the “what was I thinking” list, but you still want to add a little bit of style to your tables, then head over to Minted and browse the rest of Minted Weddings. You’ll find everything from invitations to table numbers to programs, gift packaging and all the little odds and ends that will save you a frantic last-minute trip to the craft store the day before your wedding. And not one thing requires a glue gun. If that’s not a check mark in the win category, I don’t know what is.
