These are a few fun flower vase ideas that I came across that I L.O.V.E. Brides get so caught up in the actual flowers for the wedding day that sometimes they forgot how much bigger of an “OMG!” factor they can strum up with simply how they display their blooms.
OK, so maybe these aren’t all exactly vases in the traditional sense, but that’s the whole idea behind getting creative. Flowers don’t have to sit in a pretty crystal or ceramic vase at your wedding – they can stem from something as small and delicate as an egg, or as big and bulky as a suitcase!
Everywhere you look, weddings are getting woodsy and going the way of the rustic, so bring your centerpieces into the trending fold! Mason jars are a simple and chic go-to that have been gracing the tables and sweet teas of southern gals for years, but wrap a colorful ribbon, lace or some burlap around ‘em and you’ve got pretty little vases that are totally DIY. I also adore the cowboy boot filled with flowers. Dust off a pair from the back of your closet or hit up some garage sales to find a boot for a steal, plant some flowers in it and watch the charming factor on your wedding grow! Another lovely option is to take a seemingly simple and plain metal bucket and let it bloom into something unique and sweet by adding flowers and turning it into a vase. Not only will each of these creative vase options add interest to your reception tables, but they can all be done without cleaning out your bank account, and what bride doesn’t love that?!
The other trend making the wedding rounds these days is everything vintage, and using an old-timey suitcase that belonged to mom and pop or picking one up from a flea market and transforming it into a “vase” is as easy as popping it open! Add flowers into the suitcase and have them flowing over the sides, and use the suitcases either in the center of the tables (if they’re small enough) or as an unexpected décor idea for your guest table or place card table.
Another bright idea for interesting vases? Take the lightbulb that just went off in your head and add some small stems of flowers! Hanging vases are a guaranteed way to get your guests oohing and ahhing, but you can dress your reception room to truly impress by hanging lightbulbs filled with flowers from the ceiling beams. The look is charming, inventive, and totally what Edison would have done at his wedding if he had gotten around to inventing them yet.
Having a brunch wedding? Don’t toss those eggshells into the trash – get the perfect eggshell color for a sweet and chic centerpiece by using the eggshells as mini vases! Do you get totally geeked out over anything to do with science? Use beakers as your vases!
Don’t think that your wedding centerpiece or place card table vases have to be the obvious go-to’s. Get creative and think about ways to bring in the theme and style of your wedding or your awesomely weird personality that makes you uniquely you into your décor, and you’ll have a vase that stands loud and proud on your tables!
