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.

Pressed Glass Hanging Vase For Weddings

This week our wedding decoration of the week is our pressed glass hanging vase. Perfect for hanging both indoor and outdoors at your wedding. The pressed glass vases can be filled with flowers or if you would prefer to use them as lanterns add a tea light. Hang from trees outside at your venue, using long ribbons in trees or alternatively hang indoors from wooden beams. We think these look best when hung at different heights. Alternatively hang the vases from shepherds crooks and used to line the aisle or just to pretty up your outdoor areas.

Ideas For Hanging Vases

Hanging vases full of floral delights bring in a lot of colour and personality to your wedding venue. If your wedding is based outdoors, there are tons of different ways you can incorporate this idea into your décor.

Even if your ceremony and reception is based indoors, it’s likely that guests will wander out into the sunshine in the evening. Dress up the outside by hanging a handful of vases from the branches of trees. It’s important to make sure the outside of your venue looks beautiful, even if the majority is based inside.

If you’re lucky enough to be having your wedding breakfast outside, use hanging vases as an elevated table centrepiece. Base your tables under trees if possible and attach the vases full of flowers to the trees. This is such a unique, unusual idea that your guests won’t have seen before and it’s a great way to get everyone talking. Plus, if the tables are under the trees your guests will be able to stay cool in the shade during the scorching heat of the day.

Another way of using hanging vases at your Summer wedding day is by using them as a backdrop. They’re an incredible backdrop for your wedding photographs. Why not hang them behind your wedding cake or dessert table? Match the colours of your chosen flowers to your wedding cake and tasty treats for a look that is completely coordinated.

Mix and match with hanging vases containing tea lights too. The variety of flowers and candles will look beautiful and glowing in the evening. If you wanted a style that looks natural and a little mismatched, shake things up by using a mixture of jam jars, mason jars and vases. You can turn jam jars, bottles and vases into hanging vases yourself by tying twine or wire around the lip at the top of the jam jar and creating a loop to hang from – see our blog post .

You can get really creative when it comes to dressing your vases. Lace ribbon looks beautiful wrapped around a vase and is perfect if you want an elegant wedding style. Hessian ribbon or natural twine is a great choice if you’re having a rustic or woodland wedding, and will fit in beautifully with your surroundings. Inject a splash of colour by using colourful ribbon to hang the vases from the trees with. It’s so easy to blend the vases into your colour scheme with the colour of the ribbon.

Hanging vases look fab if they’re hung from a variety of different heights, and it makes the décor look absolutely effortless. If you’ve not got many trees surrounding your wedding venue, fear not! Source as many shepherd hooks as you need, and plant them into the ground instead. Alternatively, add a few nails to a plank of wood that can be hung up somewhere – that would look gorgeous behind your dessert table.

The flowers you choose for the vases are incredibly important. Natural, wild flowers are perfect if you’ve opted for a country or English garden theme. However, roses or peonies are beautiful for an elegant affair. Be sure that they tie in with the rest of your wedding flowers, even if you are doing this bit yourself, as you don’t want them to be too contrasting.

However if you are looking for something a little more budget friendly we have a couple of suggestions.

Hanging Lanterns From The Ceiling

Hanging lanterns work particularly well in marquees. Think about using different sized lanterns all in the same colour or a selections of different colours all from the same colour palette. As guests enter the marquee or venue they won’t be expecting the celing decor and will be amazed.  hanging paper lanterns wow factor wedding decorations

Festoon Lights or Festival Globe Lights Draped From The Ceiling

Strings of lights can look fab at weddings, hang them from the celings of marquees or you venue. As guests enter the reception room they will love the extra detail.
