“Wine is the liquid of love, the fluid of folly, the elixir of elation, and the fuel that awesome celebrations run on.” – James Loram, Wedding Songs Timeline Planner.

wine bottle centerpieces for wedding, wine bottle centerpieces for weddings, wine bottle centerpiece, centerpieces for weddings, wine bottle centerpieces, centerpieces for wedding receptionsAh yes, the above quote was written by me many, many minutes ago–like 8.  Seriously, being quoted in a bridal magazine as saying the above was not only an honor, but a testament of my attitude toward good wine and it’s impact on your wedding day. There’s no reason why you can’t incorporate the bottle into your decor, such as having wine bottle centerpieces for your affair.  Using wine bottle centerpieces for wedding celebration decorations is not only a fun trend, but also a great way to tell your guests to eat, drink, and be merry!

The wine bottle centerpieces for weddings can be made up very easily by you or a crafty friend.  There are a few different ways to create the wine bottle centerpiece.  Here are some of the most popular and attractive.

Flower Wine Bottle Centerpiece

As typical for any centerpieces for weddings, incorporating flowers are almost de rigueur.  There’s no question that flowered wine bottle centerpieces are the most requested.  In this situation, you will most likely need to incorporate more than one bottle in your display and here’s why.  It is hard to fit more than one or two stems into a wine bottle opening.  Unless you are going for a minimalistic or sparse look, I highly recommend going with a group of bottles.  See the pic below as an example.

Candle Wine Bottle Centerpieces

These are very simple to make, although the look incredible.  I know what you’re thinking. How did they get that darn candle down into the bottle?  All you need is a bottle cutter and cut off the bottom of the bottle!  Some people like to replace the cut out piece after inserting the candle.  wine bottle centerpieces for wedding, wine bottle centerpieces for weddings, wine bottle centerpiece, centerpieces for weddings, wine bottle centerpieces, centerpieces for wedding receptionsThis is fine as long as you know you can light the candle through the bottle top opening.  By gluing the cut out piece back onto the bottom, you won’t be able to replace the candle.  This makes the candle a one-time use item.  If you give the centerpiece away (which I highly recommend!) you should simply place the bottom back on or just leave it away entirely. Also, if you do give away the candle wine bottle centerpieces, be sure you sand the cut glass edges!  It would be sad if one of your guests got slashed from your gift!

Lighted Wine Bottle Centerpieces

We are not talking about those Tiki torches you see at beach parties.  The lighted centerpieces for wedding receptions are not flaming torches of glass.  All you need are those battery-operated Christmas lights that you can slide into the top opening.  Of course, you will need to add some other embellishments to this style or you will look like you, well, simply stuffed some lights in a bottle!

This last style of centerpiece is a very popular one as the guests get one or two actual bottles of wine to take home with them at the end of the night!  Again, the wine bottles are the center of a more elaborately designed arrangement.  Now, there’s no reason why you can’t use elements from all of the above, but remember that less is more, and elegance is simple. Have fun making or creating your own wine bottle centerpieces for weddings!

fall wedding colors, fall wedding colors 2011, fall wedding colors schemes, fall wedding colors ideas, fall wedding colors bridesmaid dressesIf you have your wedding scheduled for fall, you can look at the color of the leaves changing from green to their bright and vibrant tones.  These, of course, aren’t really “bright” but they are brilliant in contrast.  Even with that contrast, do you see how they still seem to work together?  This is why your combinations of two colors or three colors for your fall wedding colors schemes should have a main color, a secondary main color, and if adding a third, an accent.  Since you aren’t actually using super bright colors, your able to take advantage of using a variety instead of only a one main or one main and one accent color.

Another plus of using fall colors is they are usually the same every year so you will always be fashionable.  When looking at fall wedding colors 2011 and comparing them to fall wedding colors 2021, they will probably  be very similar if not exact.   Using these colors for the vest and tie set for the tuxedos for weddings would look quite amazing, especially paired with the bridesmaids dresses.  The main fall wedding colors ideas that

Look at those rich colors, like olive, dark olive, mocha and chocolate, reds, rust (a darker burnt orange), and burnt oranges and browns.  These would all look terrible slammed together, so here are some great blends to consider.  Olive can be combined with it’s darker cousin, rust, mocha and especially eggplant.  Red will go with dark chocolate tones, and you can highlight that pair with an orange of burnt orange.  If you are bringing in deep blues, combine with a burgandy or merlot color and highlight with eggplant.  Eggplant , which is a purplish color blends so well with most of the deep rich colors of fall.  Browns, darker red shades and the sage greens make for a good combination.
