Whilst every bride wants to look her best on her big day, it’s fair to say that she also wants her reception room to be dressed in its best too. When it comes to creating the perfect table dressings, brides in the know turn to Frette, purveyors of some of the finest linens in the world for almost 160 years. Brides who use Frette are in good company too, since their linens have been featured everywhere from the altar of St. Peter’s basilica to the dining car of the Orient Express.
Frette has just unveiled its AW17 “Masterpiece” collection – and masterpiece is indeed the right name for this sophisticated but contemporary range of linens. Wedding breakfasts can be made that bit extra special by dressing the tables with some of the new season styles – such as the “Goddess” table cloths and place mats, with crisp whites matched with a gold or silver border. Alternatively, the Golden Deco place mats and napkins are beautiful additions to any table, owing to the ornamental golden leaf decoration that features on the fabric.
If you want to make your wedding really personal, however, Frette offers a customisation service across its entire product range, with a great selection of fabrics, colour options and special decorations such as family coats-of-arms. Of course, this can work not just for dressing the tables but also for guests unsure of what to buy for the happy couple. Give your gift the personal touch with bespoke embroidered bed linen, bath robes or even towel sets, for the bride and groom to cherish for a lifetime. Don’t know the couple well enough to be so personal? Keep things on point with beautiful bedding – the Golden Deco line, for instance, comes as bed linen with carefully embroidered motifs. Or go the whole nine yards and get the Golden Deco towels and table settings to match. That’s really bringing something different to the table!
