    We have been collecting jars and bottles etc and will wrap them with a combination of twine, burlap and lace. 2 of my lovely friends will be setting these up on the morning of the wedding with flowers from the markets. I am also thinking of using old wine bottles sprayed with blackboard paint and writing the table numbers on these. We really wanted to save money with the centrepieces plus I love that rustic look! 🙂

      Oohh I love anything that involves chalkboard paint at the moment (plus it’s so easy!) Love lots of jars too, lovely idea!

        Well you have convinced me to definitely go ahead with the chalkboard paint idea. Plus it’s a good excuse to drink wine to collect the bottles! 🙂

          Tough life 😉 Chalkboard markers and chalk make it so easy too!

    We are having light pink and white david Austin Roses in rustic cube vases, plus loads of recycles glass jars wrapped with twine and a little wooden heart on each one. For the table numbers we used a old pallete cut into squares then stuck white numbers on these , they look really rustic and cute! plus burlap table runners 🙂

    We’re having a nerdy collection of chemistry glassware like beakers and conical flasks filled with flowers and wrapped with twine, clustered on each table with some tealight candles and pages from a vintage copy of Pride and Prejudice. I’m a high school English teacher and my fiance is a scientist so it was a cute personalised touch to bring both of our passions together, and you’d be surprised how good they actually look despite the randomness of it all!

    We are having burlap runners with cut glass vases and jars with lace wrapped around them. Lots and lots of flowers, approximately 10 vases/jars per table. Some large arrangements other quite small. Hoping for a vintage look and fingers crossed we can pull it off!! Thank god for all of our wonderful vendors!!!
