Wedding Tablescapes at Lewin Terrace: Rustic Romantic

For the longest time, the editorial team at SingaporeBrides has been brewing a wonderful concoction of themed tablescapes and we’re thrilled to finally be able to show it to you!

Conceptualised by us, and styled by Med Karlek, featuring vintage, glassware and jar props from Styled StoryBells and Birds and Taylor B Design Group, flowers by Hua Hee, cakes by Winifred Kriste Cake, chocolates by A Piece of Sin and dinnerware from Lewin Terrace, our tablescape shoot features four different wedding inspirations – Rustic Romantic, Kate Spade, Ornate and Watercolour, all beautifully shot by Multifolds Photography at Lewin Terrace. Take a peek at the first instalment of our tablescape inspirations and learn how to put together a rustic romantic sweetheart table for two or more!

Inspired by the beautiful barn and backyard weddings plastered all over Pinterest and the Internet, I wanted to bring that perfect balance of rustic and romance of one to the table, quite literally. Plenty of sunlight, homely touches, and a blend of warm rustic and dreamy shades comes to mind when I think of barn and backyard weddings. And the wooden floored balcony of the beautifully refurbished bungalow, aptly named The Romantic Terrace, provided the perfect setting for this theme.

For this rustic romantic tablescape inspiration, I envisioned floral crates, rustic blooms, understated wedding cakes and vintage knick-knacks in dreamy shades of blush, cream, white, rustic greens and browns, and a dab of gold. The greens and browns of the floral crate, vintage props and books, and elegant white dinnerware exuded the raw appeal of a barn’s wooden structure and the homeliness of a backyard wedding. And nothing screams ‘homely’ more than a handmade kraft paper wedding menu, professionally executed by the Med Karlek team. Winifred Kriste Cake’s three-tier cake with frills and realistic handmade sugar flowers was the perfect complement to the dreamy blooms while the hints of gold on the table bestowed just the right amount of posh befitting a wedding.

Decorating your wedding with rustic and romantic elements need not necessarily break the bank, as long as you prioritise your budget appropriately. Here’s how to:

  • Save the floral crate centerpiece for your VIP table and decorate the rest of your guest tables with an equally charming alternative of rustic blooms like lavender or baby’s breath in clear jars to save on decorations and flower costs.
  • Re-use elements that you, your family or your friends have at home, such as potpourri or dried flowers, to add a rustic touch to your set-up without going over budget.

We would like to thank all the creative vendors who came bright and early to Lewin Terrace to put our series of tablescapes together!

Stay tuned for our second instalment of our tablescape inspirations at Lewin Terrace as we show you how you can turn your wedding into a colourful sophisticated affair with a Kate Spade inspired set-up.
