We know what you're thinking - clear vases for wedding decor? Isn't that idea a little bland? Clear vases can easily seem like a supporting actor when it comes to wedding decor, but if you get creative you'll find they can be used just about anywhere to make your wedding decor, colors, and florals POP! Here are five simple ways you can feature clear vases in your wedding decor:
1. Table Decor Accents
We figured we'd start with the most obvious (and most underestimated) use of clear vases - table decor accents! Use clear vases to show off your favorite florals, and to catch the light, giving your table decor the perfect shimmery effect. So simple, and yet it captures the beauty of freshly picked flowers that everyone loves - your guests included!
2. Place Card Holders
This one may be our favorite. Use smaller, clear vases as a unique way to display your reception place cards. Who doesn't love an adorable little vase with their name on it?! You could even send them home with your guests as a fresh-flower "thank you" for their love and support.
3. Reception Lounge Decor Accents
Reception lounges or bistro tables are the perfect place to display a few clear vases to amp up your decor. They are eye candy that leaves enough space for guests to set their drinks, and will help carry your wedding style and colors into your cocktail hour/reception. This small touch will create the ambiance you desire while keeping it simple!
4. Welcome Sign Vignette
You have the perfect welcome sign to display, but propping it up by itself seems to be a little bare - what to do? Just add a few clear vases with your wedding florals and voilà! You have a welcome sign vignette that is the perfect way to welcome your guests to your big day.
5. Ceremony Decor
And our final suggestion - using clear vases in your ceremony decor. Who says you can't set vases on the floor? Surrounding yourself with loose stemmed florals in clear vases creates a romantic fresh flower halo around you and the love of your life as you say "I do". Beautiful and simple - two things we love!
