Vintage glass bottles in a mismatch of sizes and colours work as beautiful DIY vases for wedding table decorations. Simply add a single stem flower into the bottle and display at your wedding reception.

Vintage bottles can look effective running along your top table, use the colours of flowers and bottles to tie in with your wedding colour scheme. If you have anywhere around your venue or outdoor space which will allow you to hang bottles, they make fab hanging decorations. Simple yet effective!

For your guest tables cluster a group of vintage glass bottles together, either run them along the table if you’re opting for long tables or make a group in the centre if you’re having round tables.

Use a variety of different sized and coloured glass bottles, or keep them all matching, it’s up to you.

DIY Vintage Escort Cards

If you’re looking for a unique way to display your escort cards or want something totally different to a traditional table plan then this might take your fancy. Cluster a number of bottles together on a table, fill with single stem flowers and tie a vintage brown paper luggage tag around the neck of the bottle with the guests name and table number written on it. Guests can collect their bottle and find out where they are sitting, the vases can double up as wedding favours as well.

If you are thinking of grouping a number of bottles together for your table centre pieces try tying the bottles with twine, vintage lace or ribbon in the colour of your bridesmaid dresses.

Vases/Bottles are a great way to add a little bit of extra decoration to your dessert tables or drinks stations, position them next to your candy jars and fill with bright blooms or subtle coloured roses for a more subdued vintage style candy buffet.

If you have any window sills or mantle pieces at your wedding reception venue then line up your bottles in a row or intersperse with candles for a romantic evening glow.

Wedding Venue Décor

One of my favourite ways of using suitcases at your wedding is to incorporate them into your venue décor. Stack two or three suitcases on top of one another and add a pretty vintage vase full of daises or roses. You could even add old-fashioned photographs in antique frames on each suitcase to transport your guests to a bygone era. There are lots of different ways to style your suitcase décor – it’s completely down to your personal taste!

Suitcase Table Plan

Suitcases are extremely versatile, especially when it comes to using them to display your table plans. Tie them in with your suitcase venue décor by stacking them on top of each other – you can then display your table plan on top of them. This is a fab idea if you’ve already got a table plan framed. On the other hand, you could open the suitcase and hang twine from the edges, and peg each table plan along the string.

Suitcases At Your Wedding Ceremony

Suitcases at your wedding can be very useful. Fill open suitcases with confetti, wedding favours or even your order of service. Simply place an open suitcase outside your ceremony room with a sign saying ‘Please Take A Program’.

Delicious Cake Display

Where to start with your wedding cake? Why not go all out with a suitcase themed wedding cake? You could ask your cake maker to create a wanderlust wedding cake in the shape of a suitcase! Or you could simply display your wedding cake on or in suitcase – a fab alternative to the traditional cake stand.

Gifts And Cards

Suitcases are great ways of collecting your wedding cards and gifts. Hang card bunting across the suitcase so that you guests know where to deliver their cards – that way they don’t have to worry about losing them during the reception. A vintage card and gift table is a wonderful way of decorating your venue. All you need are a few vintage photographs and some weathered, antique books. It’ll fit in with your suitcase style beautifully.

Table Centrepieces

Why not use suitcases as part of your wedding table centrepieces? Opt for smaller suitcases, rather than large ones as they may take over your tables a little too much. Place a mini suitcase in the middle of your table and fill with flowers or your favourite photographs of you both as a couple. Your guests will adore flicking through them and it’s a definite talking point for everyone.

Love Notes

Time to get romantic! Suitcases can be used as a different option to a traditional guest book. Ask your guests to write a lovely note or some marriage advice on a vintage postcard, and ask them to place it in your suitcase. It’ll keep your notes safe and it means you can read them after your special day.
