Vases can make a variety of decorations, centrepieces, and party favours for a wedding. Tall, thin vases can be used to make delicate, elegant centrepieces, while short, wide vases can be used to make colourful floating centrepieces. Silk flowers can be used in vases for party favours that will last forever, while real rose petals in a floating vase can give the decoration a soft appeal. LED lights and candles can give your vase a faint, romantic glow under dimmed lights. Start your decorating by choosing the type of vase you like. Then pick from a variety of decorating ideas.

Slim Lit Vase
The slim lit vase is meant to be a simple, romantic and elegant centrepiece. It consists of a long, thin vase, in the style of a trumpet vase or an Eiffel Tower vase. Place two to three small LED lights at the bottom of the vase for a faint glowing effect. Small, battery-powered LED bulbs can be found at craft stores, and come in different shapes and colours. Choose either a single flower, such as a rose, or an ostrich feather to place in the vase to complete the design.
Floating Bouquet Vase
The floating bouquet vase can be used as a centrepiece for a guest table and also hold the party favours. Fill a large, clear, short and wide vase with cool, fresh water. Buy bundles of mini carnations to match one of the wedding colours, cutting the stems until they are about 3 inches long. Bind bouquets of three carnations with a ribbon that matches the second wedding colour. Float the mini bouquets in the vase for an elegant centrepiece that matches the wedding. When the reception is over, each guest can take a bouquet home.
Floating Candle Vase
The floating candle vase can be either a soft, romantic centrepiece or a wild and colourful centrepiece. Fill a shallow goblet-style clear vase about halfway with cool, fresh water. Mix in a handful of rose petals. You can buy rose petals in many colours, and the soft texture of the petals play off the water and soft lighting. Place four to five lit floating candles of your choice in the vase to complete the centrepiece. Floating candles come in all different shapes, sizes, and colours. If you have leftover rose petals, scatter them at the base of the vase.
Silk Flower Vase
The silk flower vase can be an inexpensive party favour or a soft centrepiece. The benefit of this vase is that it is a memento that will never wilt. This piece works best with a classic, somewhat wide vase. You need a foam ball, ribbon in one of the wedding colours, and silk flowers in the second wedding colour. Wrap the ribbon around your vase (use hot glue to secure it) and tie a large bow toward the top. Place the foam ball into the vase. Stick the silk flower stems into the foam, arranging them into a thick bouquet.
Ornamented Lit Vase
The ornamented lit vase is a classy decoration with a soft glow. Use a bowl-shaped clear vase. Choose a variety of round glass baubles and ornaments. They can be classic silver and gold or they can be wedding colours. Mix your baubles and ornaments into your vase carefully. Thread a strand of clear white, battery-powered Christmas lights throughout the vase and ornaments, causing the ornaments to shine and giving the entire vase a soft glow.
