Wedding [1] inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources, as we saw at this year's San Francisco Wedding Fair [2], which featured several pop-star-inspired tablescapes designed by wedding- and event-planning company Floramor Studios [3]. From edgy to sweet, these extravagant tables take on the personalities and musical styles of female singers like Britney Spears [4], Demi Lovato, Katy Perry [5], Lady Gaga [6], Nicki Minaj, Rihanna [7], and Taylor Swift [8]. Find your own star-worthy inspiration for your big day with these rockin' ideas!

Britney Spears

Britney Spears [10] is the ultimate pop star, having influenced many of today's hottest singers since her ". . . Baby One More Time" days. But Brit's all grown up now, so a table inspired by her is equal parts glitz and elegance. Think sparkles, over-the-top rose centerpieces, and mirrored surfaces that reflect the star within.

Candles, pearls, and a mirrored tabletop create a dreamy atmosphere.

Give your guests the wow factor with an organic rose centerpiece, complete with hanging lanterns.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift [11] is a guitar-playing natural beauty whose country roots make their way into her musical style. So channel the young singer with a rustic, garden-inspired tablescape that could be at home in an Anthropologie [12] store. Earthy greens, a birdcage centerpiece, and feather decor bring it all together.

With floral linens and rustic roses, the look is country but still modern and fresh.

This cheeky tablescape had the names of Taylor's exes on all the place cards.

Creamy white ceramic plates and cups give the spread an Italian villa vibe.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato's rock-pop style inspires a darker, edgier look. Dramatic printed linens in rich tones, glossy black accessories, and a bold modern centerpiece set the scene.

While the overall look is dramatic, curly-cue ribbons and beaded lamps give the tablescape a younger feel.

Gilded touches on the places and romantic lighting add a bit of glam to the table.

A globe-shaped centerpiece of orange roses gets some unexpected flair with curled black-and-gold ribbons.

Nicki Minaj

Hip-hop singer, rapper, and dancing pop star all in one, Nicki Minaj is a chameleon in both her style and her rainbow-colored fashion choices. A tablescape inspired by Nicki needs to be as bold and bright as she is.

Nicki Minaj

Brightly colored linens are the easiest way to give your table that pop, and these turquoise ones do the trick. Have some fun with paint-splattered place cards.

Nicki Minaj

Pair clear Louis Ghost Chairs with the bright table for an air of sophistication.

If you want to keep the rest of the look fun but grown-up, then use pastel glassware for subtle color, and add some food coloring to vessels holding floating candles.

Rihanna

It's only fitting that Rihanna [13] — who sings, "Shine bright like a diamond" — would inspire a glitzy, sparkly table with exotic floral touches.

Take your table to a whole new twinkle level with linens literally made of rhinestones.

Go big or go home with the sparkly touches.

Lady Gaga

Known for her bizarre fashion choices, cult fan following, and trendsetting music, Lady Gaga [14] inspires an eye-catching, nontraditional table design. In keeping with her extravagant concerts, give your table the Gaga treatment with lights, props, and bold elements.

Gold details and iridescent beading paired with relaxing sea tones and scattered plumeria flowers give this table a noncheesy tropical look.

Give your guests something to talk about with "trees" topped with baby's breath and twinkling lights as the centerpieces.

Continue with the unexpected details by hanging glass teardrops filled with water and plumeria flowers.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry [15] is a sugar-sweet singer with a fun-loving personality and a propensity toward candy bras and colored hair. So to give your table that Katy Perry [16] factor, you'll need lots of girlie colors and enough candy to give your guests a toothache.

Katy Perry

Use clear vessels of different sizes filled with brightly colored candy to add a Candy Land-meets-Willy Wonka atmosphere.

Keep the sweet theme going with candy place settings.

Go retro with your candy choices to give a nostalgic vibe.

Purple linens get jazzed up with a swirly texture, and multicolored Gerbera daisies make for lighthearted florals.
