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 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.

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.
