Let’s take a look, starting with glass apothecary vases.

1. Apothecary vases



Apothecary vases make beautiful centerpieces, and they gained most popularity as dessert buffet or candy bar display containers. You’ll typically place apothecary jars in a set of two or three, with ‘trophy’ (taller size) and ‘bubble’ (shorter and wider size) holding the reigns as popular style choices at weddings. Here are examples of the styles.

As a set of three, these couture apothecary jars are cheap for the entire set, available here. When filled with candy they really pop; after the wedding, fill ’em up with ornaments for Christmas, seashells for the summertime, or even cotton balls / bath fizzies for your bathroom.

2. Bud vases

Bud vases are short, small vases like these designed to hold one or two flower stems. These sweet vases look best in small groupings; always use the rule of threes (always odd numbers) when placing them at your tables.

5. Terrarium vases

Geometric terrarium vases have really skyrocketed to the top of the popularity charts this year; we see this trend continuing as couples continue to love these terrariums as vases for weddings. Fill yours with candles for an ultra-modern effect; if you prefer, use moss and succulents to create mini gardens atop your reception tables.

Here’s an example of how beautiful these look when filled with flowers (vase + photo via Love and Luxe Handmade):
