The most intimate of table settings; a Moroccan inspired table breaks free from the traditional and formal and creates a warming atmosphere of togetherness on your big day.
To achieve a Moroccan inspired look think low lighting, floor seating and old golds. Opt for bowls instead of plates and you could even go for food that can be eaten without cutlery for a more original and authentic experience. Then use lanterns and pretty fairy lights as your main source of light, which you can place around the tables and floor to create a warm glow.

RSG Top Tip: Don't be afraid of mismatched furniture and crockery. Not only does a mixture of crockery and furniture add to the vintage Moroccan vibe, but it is also brilliant when you're on a tight budget!
Full of passion, desire and some RSG darkness; a Gothic Passion table setting is something we are lusting after!
To create a gothic wedding table, opt for dark tablecloths and low lighting. An emphasis on metallic golds and black with a pop of deep red will create a dark, sensual feel. Accessorise with quirky display pieces like our bird feet candlesticks to create a little gothic glamour!

RSG Top Tip: Symmetry is key for a gothic table setting. Create a mirrored effect on either side of the table which will draw the eye and is totally Insta-worthy!
Greenery, Pantone's Colour of the year, is an epic alternative table setting idea! Greenery is symbolic of optimism and new beginnings and this what makes it such a perfect fit for your wedding table.
To create a greenery table use simple white lace table cloths or table runners and create a focus on the centrepiece. Intertwine green leaves, eucalyptus and ivy down the centre of the table and then embellish with terrariums, candles and eye-catching vases. Try something a little different and fill your terrariums with plants for the ultimate maximalist look!
