Budget-Savvy Vases

Flowers are a huge part of any wedding, but who says that you need to stick to the traditional old vase?! Not me! For a fun twist give this budget-savvy DIY a try:

Take a trip to your local liquor store to pick up some beer, liquor, or wine; get anything from your favorite drinks of choice to the most unique bottle designs. Next call over all your friends. Now it gets good, consume the beverages (responsibly of course) and make sure to save all the bottles because it is key for what comes next! Finally, use the bottles as non-traditional flower vases for your big day! For a less social but still budget-savvy way to get your bottle vases, try searching for empty bottles in bulk online!

Choose to either leave the labels on or remove. If you decide to remove the labels I recommend soaking in warm water with a fabric softener sheet for about 30-minutes, after they should peel right off!

To be even more budget-savvy, purchase floral stems from your local farmers market or grow your own wild flowers to place in each bottle! What a super fun and cheap way to jazz up any wedding!
