17 Coasters That Will Look Absolutely Lovely at Weddings

How will you incorporate your personal style into your wedding bar? The first things couples always tackle are drinks and glassware, but what about fun and unexpected details that can make your bar really POP? Besides fun swizzle sticks or straws like these and a signature drink sign, wedding coasters are another detail we love to see at receptions. We have seen coasters given as favors, we have seen coaster save the dates, escort cards, and we have seen them turned into creative guest book alternatives. A unique wedding coaster can act as an element of decor for your theme, as well as offer functionality by keeping tables clean of condensation and acting as a “drink saver” (more on that below). To illustrate how awesome wedding coasters can be, we’ve rounded-up seventeen finds to inspire your unique wedding bar style. Read on to see what we’ve found!

Coasters for Weddings

These wedding coasters are essential for a rustic wedding bar. By Pixels and Timber.

2. Coasters as your Save the Date

3. Eat, Drink and Be Married

These coasters are elegant and feature a fun saying: “Eat, Drink and Be Married”. We love this example which features the couple’s names, wedding date, and website address. Perfect for guests to visit after the wedding if you’re showcasing photos on your wedding website. By Ruffhouse Art.

4. With Love from Chicago

Or Detroit. Or Los Angeles. Or NYC. Wherever your love adventure began! By Allie Hasson. Sidebar: it looks like this is the last batch of wedding coasters with “Chicago” and they might not be making more (sadface). Hmmm. I say, ask them anyway and maybe they’ll get a huge response and make them for all cities, since they’re incredibly lovely! I call dibs on Romeo.

8. Thank You to Parents

9. Polka Dotted

This festive polka dotted monogram coaster is one of our favorites: it can be customized to suit your color palette and shows off your monogram. By Dear LC.

10. Wedding Coaster Favors

Wrap up a set of coasters and give them to guests as favors, like these by My Little Chickadee Creations which are custom and handmade.

11. Please Don’t Take My Drink

A wedding coaster can be used as a drink saver, when placed on the rim of a glass. This coaster reads, “Please don’t take my drink, I’m dancing“. I swear, the number of drinks “cleaned up” while people are dancing is incredible! It will save you money, too, as a bonus, since most guests go get a new drink when they discover theirs is gone.

12. My Wish for the Newlyweds

Place these wedding coasters at the bar and guests can write their well wishes! This also takes the place of a guest book (similarly to #5, above). By Starboard Press.

13. Chalkboard

Guests can write their names on these chalkboard coasters so they don’t lose sight of which drink is theirs.

14. Photo Save the Date

You can have your engagement photo placed onto a coaster and sent as a unique save the date, well ahead of the big day.

15. Escort Card Coasters

Meet the escort card coaster: it’s an escort card and drink coaster in one! Two birds, one stone.

35 Easily Beautiful Ways to Use Burlap for Weddings

Hi, loves! Emma here. When I used to think of burlap, I pictured rope or netting or large bags of rice or coffee beans. Now when I think of it, I imagine rustic table runners and burlap-covered favor jars and delicate chair sashes with baby’s breath tucked into its center. Burlap is a woven fabric made from jute plant or sisal fibers. It has many practical uses in landscaping and manufacturing, but now it is one of the most sought-after crafting materials — especially for weddings. With its rough texture, it’s hard to believe that burlap has charmed its way into the hearts of brides, but it has! And we know that burlap for weddings is here to stay. And just when you thought you’ve seen it all when it comes to burlap, think again: we’ve rounded up thirty-five new uses for burlap for your wedding decor, gifting, accessories, and more.

So, grab a huge cup of coffee (it is Monday, after all, and make sure you put it in a happy mug) and get ready to be inspired! Enjoy!

P.S. Need to order burlap in bulk? Try your local hardware store, craft shop, or try here.
