  1. 1

    Choose table linens that will carry the Greek goddess theme of your wedding. Look for lush and satiny fabrics to resemble a palace in the clouds. White, blue and gold are all colours to incorporate. Consider using white tablecloths with gold napkins and blue table runners.

  2. 2

    Create a Greek-inspired centrepiece for each table. These can be as simple as a bowl of water with candles floating inside. Get more creative by using a fruit bowl filled with purple grapes. Add some drama and height to each table with tall vases filled with white roses. Surround each centrepiece with glass pebbles or sparkling confetti to create some extra Greek goddess glamour.

  3. 3

    Drape long pieces of fabric across the ceiling. Attach the fabric starting in the centre of the room, such as behind a chandelier, and extend each fabric piece outward in every direction. Tulle is one inexpensive and easy-to-use fabric that can create this decoration fit for the gods.

  4. 4

    Adorn the venue with items you'd imagine finding among the Greek gods, including white pillars. Some party stores rent lightweight versions of these columns that can be placed around the room. Use them to accent the alter or dance floor. Also, incorporate ferns and ivy in the space by hanging them from walls or planting them in large pottery vases.

  5. 5

    Accent each table with a favour for your guests that will continue carrying the Greek goddess wedding theme. Consider giving them grapes, bath oils or Caesar salad dressing. A bottle of wine will also carry this theme. Create your own label for the wedding, including with your name and the wedding's date.
