I have also seen similar centerpieces that use epsom salts instead of sugar. You could also sprinkle a mix of pearls/gems. Sand (or sugar), faux pearls, a 3 candle. An easy DIY wedding centerpiece idea.
gold painted bottles make pretty flower vases, but maybe silver would too? maybe the allure is the warmth of gold. LOVE the single flower per bottle look though! Then you only need like 5 flowers per table tops
Winter weddings are glamorous and dramatic and different from the traditional summer and fall wedding. The magical feeling of a 'winter wonderland' and discounted prices are an excellent reason to buck the trend and host your wedding in winter.
