A combination of textures is absolutely necessary to achieve creative wedding tablescapes. I recommend you choose textiles with fluid and natural fabrics, that can move freely and that adds a very elegant touch to the tables through tablecloths, table runners, napkins with a handmade look, and much more.

If you think that the texture of the table should show off on its own, then you can opt for individual placemats made with artisanal techniques.
