Wedding Flowers – What to Use as a Vase

17 Apr

We’ve been planning to use my old blue ball jars for our wedding for some time now – but I knew I couldn’t just throw them on the table and hope that they work out.

I put together 2 options — using the same ranunculus bouquet from Trader Joe’s.

Option 1: ranunculus in the blue quart Ball jar. If I go this route, I’m going to have to work with stem lengths, I think I’ll have to trim them down so the heads are closer to the mouth of the jar.


Option 2: I have a bunch of these laying around — I thought they’d look fabulous with a ribbon tied around them, and the flowers. Again, I’d have to play around with the height of the stems before the actual wedding.


Or maybe I should pull them apart and go with a more sparse look, a la Martha Stewart.


Either way, I’ve got to figure it out soon — the wedding is less than 30 days away!

    Oooh…those ranunculus just make me swoon! Love them. You’ve got two beautiful options. I definitely think the blue jars are more unique, but I guess it depends on how it all coordinates with the other elements you have planned.

    I prefer the blue because I think it’s unexpected and really cute, and *just a tiny bit* looser. They both look great, though!

    Blue jars definitely. i agree that it’s more unique!

    Wow, your wedding is in less than 30 days? I have been following your blog since you got engaged! Will you still be blogging or start a new site?

    I also vote for the blue jars, but I’m sure whatever you end up using will look great!
