On long tables use mercury glass tea light holders, footed vases and votives in between your florals. They look stunning on jewelled table runners. For a luxe candy buffet or dessert table add mercury glass tea lights and candle sticks in and around your sweets, macaroons and cakes. A couple of mercury glass bottles with single stem roses dotted around the table will also add to the luxe feel.

To add a burst of colour to your guest tables why not scatter petals over the linen. Soft pink petal confetti below instantly adds colour to the tables and gives a lovely relaxed look.

Treat your guests to wedding petal confetti presented beautifully in paper cones for them to throw for your confetti moment as you walk out for the first time as husband and wife.

Make the cones yourself by rolling a sheet of paper into a cone and sticking it together along one edge. The paper you choose for your cones could have a personal meaning. Photocopy pages from your favourite book, poem or use sheet music from your favourite song.

If confetti cones aren’t your thing perhaps hand out confetti in hessian bags or organza bags, little details such as signs saying ‘Sprinkle Me’ can add a personal touch.

Wedding confetti petals can add definitiion to your aisle if sprinkled down the sides, or have young flower girls sprinkle it down the aisle as they walk before you. Choose the colour of petals to tie in to the overall look of your day.

If you are looking for something a little different to petal confetti you could consider lavender grain. This has a beautiful scent and can be thrown or scattered on tables.

Hanging Bottles Wedding Inspiration

Hanging Bottles Wedding Inspiration

If you’re using glass bottles as part of your wedding decorations on your tables have you thought about hanging them up? An easy DIY idea which can look stunning at your wedding.

If your wedding venue has a large tree in the grounds it would look stunning with hundreds of bottles hanging from the branches. A really simple thing to do, just tie some string or ribbon around the neck of the bottle and hang from the branches, you can even hang a few bottles from the same piece of string.  Fill the bottles with flower heads, they don’t have to have flowers in each one, just a random mix.

If you’re feeling crafty and have some time put aside for DIY wedding details there are some great ideas which incorporate hanging bottles. Create a curtain of hanging bottles along a flat wall at your wedding venue or whole side panel of your marquee. This would create a backdrop for photos or a backdrop for your top table. Choose bright flowers to show up against the walls, bright yellow tulips and craspedia work well.

Hang bottles with single stem blooms inside empty picture frames and hang from the wall for living artwork.  Hanging bottles wedding Source {Hanging bottles with yellow tulips  – Jenny Elbert, Hanging bottles in picture frames – WhitsAmuseBouche, Hanging green and blue bottles – Jade Alana, Hanging bottles in frame (styled by Rock My Wedding) – Christian Ward}

Hanging decorations at your wedding ceremony can create a wonderful look. I love these glass bottles hanging from branches with yellow craspedia and Spring flowers. They don’t have to be outside decorations… hanging bottles look fab indoors too! Create garlands hanging from wooden beams.

Group hanging bottles in a rows running above the centre of long tables, fill with roses for a wow factor look when guests enter your wedding reception. Hanging bottles wedding Source {Hanging bottles on string – unknown via Pinterest, Hanging bottles with bride and groom – Sedona Bride Blog}

We love these bottles simply hanging from the outdoor ceremony area. It may not be possible to guaruntee outdoor cereomnies in England but you can still decorate the gardens and walkways similar for your outdoor drinks receptions.

Wedding jam jars can make relaxed table centres, cluster a grouping of jam jars together on a table and fill with a mix of pretty blooms. These jam jars filled with flowers can make lovely gifts for guests around the table to take home. Depending on your wedding theme you may choose to persoanlise your jam jars, tie raffia, lace, hessian or ribbon around your jam jams and add extra details such as buttons and pearls. wedding jam jars table centres Source {Wedding jam jars tied with hessian – Aric and Casey Photography, Wedding jam jars tied with twine – Romance in a Glance, Wedding jam jars table centre (left) – Yazy Jo Photography, Wedding jam jars table centre (right) – Lauren Wakefield}

Jam jars can also look fab as hanging decorations. Either buy jam jars with a wire handle or add a wire handle yourself tying it around the rim. Hang jam jars from trees, entrances to your venue, ceremony areas or create a hanging curtain with a mix of jam jars and ribbon. You don’t have to fill them all with flowers, tea lights and candles can give a lovely look too. hanging wedding jam jars hanging wedding jam jars Source {Hanging wedding jam jars on wheel – Jenna Marie Photography, hanging wedding jam jars (left) – We Heart Photography, hanging wedding jam jars (right) – Anushe Low}

For an alternative to glasses why not serve your guests your signature cocktails from jam jars? Add a striped paper straw for a bit of fun. You could persoanlise the jam jars with luggage tags doubling up as escort cards or add drink me tags for a Alice In Wonderland idea. wedding jam jars straws Source {wedding jam jar as drinks – Rebel with a Camera, wedding jam jars with straws – Athena Kalindi Photography}

For an outdoor ceremony or drinks area you can hang jam jars from crooks. Either fill with flowers creating a beautiful scent for the day time or with a candle to illuminate the outdoor areas as the evening draws in. wedding jam jars crooks wedding jam jars pew ends Source {wedding jam jars on crook (left) – Chantel Marie, wedding jam jars with crook (right) – Coordinate This, jam jars as pew ends – Modern Photographic} wedding jam jars place settings Source {wedding jam jars as place settings – Honey Honey Photography}

For extra details you could use jam jars as place settings, add a blackboard label to each one and write the guests name on, perfect for a relaxed informal wedding. And finally, one of my favourite and most simple ideas is using jam jars to display your table numbers. Have one jam jar in the centre of the table and tie a luggage tag around the rim, stamp the number onto the luggage tag and there you have it! wedding jam jars table numbers Source {Wedding jam jar table number – Katherine Elizabeth Photography}
