Cream Jug Wedding Centrepiece

This week our wedding decoration of the week is our cream jug wedding centrepiece. Cream jugs make lovely centerpieces for Spring and Summer weddings. Depending on the flowers you choose to fill them with they can work for equally well for English country garden weddings in marquees as they do for rustic weddings in barn venues. Although the jugs make lovely centrepieces you may have decided you want something taller for your tables. If that's the case you can still use jugs to decorate your wedding venue, how about a jug of flowers on your guest book table or next to your table plan. If you are getting married in the summer it is always worth having a vase of water for your bouquet to sit in to keep it fresh, these jugs can work well for this and could add extra decoration to your wedding cake table, or display all the bouquets in jugs along the front of your top table.

Our Favourite Centrepieces For Wedding Tables – Vases, Vessels, Urns, Churns

Back in October our sister company Passion for Flowers exhibited at The National Wedding Show Birmingham, they created a stunning display with cascading garlands of roses and foliage hanging delicately from muslin drapes. The large tablescape included a mix of bronze and gold vases and vessels filled with an autumnal mix of foliage and soft blooms. The hanging installation created a WOW factor to the stand with trailing amaranthus, roses, helebores and even more cascading foliage. To see pictures of their stand have a look on their blog. Passion for Flowers were also asked to decorate the tables for the champagne bar, for each table they used vases and vessels that are available to buy from The Wedding of my Dreams and they fiiled them with their floral creations. Browse below to see the vases and how you could adapt them for your own centrepieces.

Wedding Jugs Ways To Use Jugs At Weddings

Sometimes keeping it simple is best. There is nothing more lovely than a bunch of beautifully scented blooms in a pretty jug. Jugs of flowers can be used at weddings, whether you opt for them as your centrepieces or give jugs of flowers as gifts we are sure they would be wonderfully received. Today we look at the different ways jugs can be used at weddings.

Wedding Jugs - Centrepieces

For a country garden, vintage or rustic wedding you could use jugs filled with flowers for your centrepieces. The flowers will look simply perfect in a jug sitting in the centre of your table. You could add some height to the centrepiece by placing it on a tree slice or stack of vintage books if you fancy. Here this jug has a mix of white hydrangeas and blush pink Sweet Avalanche roses, by Passion for Flowers. jugs wedding centrepieces Photo credit: Ross Harvey Photography

Wedding Jugs - To Hold Bouquets

When you and your bridesmaids are not holding you bouquets it is useful to have a container of water they can be placed in. This not only keeps the flowers fresh, helping them last longer but these can also be used as additional floral decorations around the venue. Cream jugs make a lovely container for bouquets, Passion for Flowers have used distressed cream jugs here for these bouquets. jugs for wedding bouquets when bridesmaids are not holding them Photo credit: Boo Weddings

How To Choose My Wedding Centrepieces {Wedding Centrepiece Ideas}

If you are a regular to our blog you will know I write regular features for Save The Date Magazine. The latest issue features a number of wedding centrepiece ideas in my article on how to choose your wedding centrepieces. If you are looking for wedding centrepiece ideas check it out below, or read the full magazine online. how to choose my wedding centrepieces

What shall I choose for my centrepieces?

When it comes to deciding on your wedding centrepieces there are so many options out there, just type ‘centrepiece’ in to Pinterest and there will be hundreds of beautiful options that you could choose from. Creative couples will enjoy coming up with their own unique wedding centrepiece ideas while others may be overwhelmed with the choice. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed try thinking about some of these pointers to help guide you.

What’s your style?

The style of your wedding may be dictated by you as a couple, perhaps you are very quirky and out there and want your wedding to reflect this, or perhaps your venue is dictating your style. Have you chosen a relaxed barn setting or a traditional stately home? When choosing your centrepieces choose something that fits in with the overall style of your day. They types of vases and containers as well as flowers you use will set the style of your centrepieces, grand candelabra suit formal elegant weddings while a grouping of bottles and jars suit a more informal style wedding.

Tall or low?

It is up to you whether you choose tall or low centrepieces, one thing to remember is your guests will want to talk to each other at the table, so whatever you do don’t put something in the table that will obstruct their view. Pick something low enough that they can see over, or tall enough that they can see under. Not all tables have to be the same, tall centrepieces give immediate wow factor as guests enter the room and for certain high ceilinged venues tall centrepieces are a must if you want to create impact. However you don’t need them on all the tables, adding low centrepieces into the mix creates variety and interest around the room.

What is your budget?

Be realistic, if your centrepieces are important to you allocate a budget that reflects it, on the other hand if they are not so important and you would rather allocate your budget elsewhere, do so. To help your budget go further opt for more foliage and herbs mixed with seasonal flowers, rather than large roses and specialist flowers.

One vase or a grouping?

Depending on your style you can choose one vase, jug, bucket filled with beautiful blooms in the centre of your tables or instead have a mix of different vases, bottles, jam jars or even crystal decanters grouped in the centre of the table. Whether you are choosing a grouping, or one vase in the middle, adding tea light holders or votives to the table will add interest and romantic candle light as the night draws in. To add even more detail to the tables think about laying something over the linen cloth, hessian table runners and wooden tree slices work well for rustic style weddings and lace table cloths or a stack of vintage books add a lovely touch for vintage style weddings.

Ask a florist or do it yourself?

This will depend on what you have chosen, the morning of your wedding is meant for relaxing so if you are thinking of taking this on yourself make sure you have chosen something that can be done well in advance and you have someone who will set it out for you. Or opt for non-floral centrepieces, lanterns and candles make lovely centrepieces and can be prepared well in advance. Don’t take on anything you can’t manage and have a practice before the wedding. If in doubt always ask a florist, if you have chosen your own containers many florists will be happy to use these, this is a lovely touch as you can then gift the whole container to special guests after the wedding. Re-use your centrepieces, often some of the guest tables will be moved for the evening party. Is there are area at your venue the centrepieces can be moved to be enjoyed by your guests, perhaps on tables in a quieter seating area, or if you had smaller bottles and vases they look fab along window sills or on the guest book table. At theweddingofmydreams.co.uk we have a whole collection of wedding vases and vessels for centrepieces to suit a variety of wedding styles.
