There’s nothing like sitting down to a meticulously planned place setting to make you feel like you’re part of a really special celebration. Wedding table settings have come a long way over the last few years, with couples getting super creative with items like name cards, favours, cutlery and a range of charger plates that frankly would surprise even the most seasoned of dinner party hosts.
