Besides the large selection of romantic lights, balloons and hanging decorations, wedding table centrepieces also play a huge role in setting the atmosphere. Out of all things, using wedding vases is one of the oldest yet most popular and eye-catching way to add dimension to wedding tables. There are several different types you can choose from.
Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Vase
According to wedding planners, when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding vases, you should take into account both the look of the vase and its size. For instance, if the vase neck is too wide, the chances that the vase won’t provide enough support for the stems are huge. And vice versa, too narrow openings could be too tight for the chosen bouquets and could end up damaging the stems. Regarding the vase and the flowers’ height, a general rule of thumb to follow is that the length of the flower stems should be around one and a half times the height of the vase.
Types of Wedding Vases
Usually, glass cylinder vases are tall and large. These vases are popular for being able to give the table the needed dimension, especially when teamed with long stem flowers. A cylinder vase can enhance the elegance of flowers such as lilies, roses, gladioli, peonies, and hydrangea which are some of the many types you can combine with cylinder/column vases. Except for tall cylinder glass vases, you can also opt for the shorter versions which are usually wider. You can also combine several of these vases that differ in height and place one on each table. There are many ways in which you can arrange flowers in them.
Where to Buy Glass Cylinder Vases?
As already mentioned, these days the market is full with a large selection of vases that range in price, size and material. And since shopping for wedding vases means buying in larger quantity, shopping online and in bulk is usually the most affordable way. Not only is online shopping more affordable, but you’ll also benefit from buying in bulk as the prices are lower than usual. That way, you’ll be able to get the best of both worlds style & quality at the most reasonable prices.
Also known as fishbowl vases, these are a real catch if you like low table centrepieces. The thing about these vases is that they are not suitable for all types of flowers, mainly because of their size. Roses, tulips and gerberas are among the most commonly used types of flowers for these vases. You just need to cut the stems in accordance to the height of the vase and arrange them as you wish. You can either use one type of flower for the arrangement or create something more eye-catching by matching different types like gerbera, lily and roses in a similar colour.
When looking for simple, yet elegant wedding vases, you should not bud vases. Because of their simple look ( the wider bottom and narrower neck), these vases have the power to create floral accents that can leave lasting impressions. Usually, they are used for showing individual stems, however, adding two or three flowers is also an option. The idea of decorating with these vases is to keep things as simple as possible.
If you strive to stand out from the crowd, then you should go for rectangular wedding vases. They are the ideal type for those of you who want vases with sharper edges. Depending on their height and width, these vases can be used to create stunning low or tall floral arrangements. Tulips, roses, and narcissi are some of the many types of flowers you can arrange in these vases.
