Marble is everywhere right now, from plate ware, vases, and placemats, to candle holders, stationery and platters, making it very easy to include this uber-cool stone in your wedding day styling. Print your stationery suite on elegant marble paper and have your cake maker create a wedding cake featuring marbleised fondant. Balance all of the cool marble elements with the warmth and earthiness of aged grey wooden tables and keep your colour palette paired back in shades of grey and white – simply stunning!

Marble Basics

Set your tables with dark grey table runners and place simple white or glass vases along the centre. Fill your vases with a mass of bare winter branches for a dramatic structural look. Choose modern dark grey plate ware and frame each setting with the coolness of stainless steel cutlery. Then place one perfect marble bomboniere box in the middle of each plate. Your guests will love taking home such a stylish offering. To perfect each table setting place the wine glasses on elegant marble coasters. And, grey or white marble candle holders will finish your reception styling with theme-perfect flair. Flickering candlelight will serve to warm things up, balancing the coolness of marble and provide the perfect reception ambience.
