Wedding Ideas Using Crystals & Vases for Cheap

Using crystals and vases for a wedding is an elegant way to combine a typically expensive item with one that is relatively cheap. The combination can make the decor appear as though you spent a fortune, when really, it was quite inexpensive and budget-friendly. The decorations are sure to stand out to almost every guest attending.

Crystal Branches

Put a crystal berry branch in a tall, thin, clear vase, both of which you can buy online. This can make a wonderful accent at the end of a long table, such as on either end of the gift table or the bridal table. They are tall and thin enough to be decorative, but not take up too much space.

Crystal-Wrapped Vases

One option for creating the centrepiece is to buy a tall, cylinder-shaped clear or pink vase and put a white pillar candle inside of it. Place it in the centre of the table, then wrap a section of crystal garland around the base of the vase. This option will be best for guest tables.

Varying Heights Vases

Buy clear square and rectangle vases in various heights. For example, buy one that is a tall and rectangle, another that is short and square and a third one that is a height between the first two. Find candles to fit each one. Use glass glue to adhere small, flat-backed crystals onto the outside of each vase. You can attach them in a haphazard fashion or in a pattern, such as a flower on each side of the holder. The vases are available online or through home goods stores; the flat-backed crystals are available online or at a craft store.

Birch Branches with Color

Buy one or two clear rectangle vases and fill them three quarters of the way with clear colour fill. Bury a coloured LED cube in the colour fill; choose one that accompanies the other colours in your wedding. Stick in tall birch branches, preferably those that have silver glitter painted onto them. Use glass glue to attach flat-backed crystals onto the outside of the vases. Glue them on in a haphazard fashion, a pattern such as straight lines or do a border of them around the top and bottom of the vase all the way around. When the lights dim after dinner, the LED cubes will light up and reflect nicely off the crystals and the branches. You can buy all the items online or in craft stores.

Apothecary Flower Vase

Buy an apothecary jar to use as a vase. You can put them all along the bridal table or even use them as centrepieces. Fill each one with water and about 3 inches of colour fill. Bury a coloured LED cube underneath the colour fill, then put a single flower or a few small flowers inside each jar. Trim the majority of the stems off the flowers until there is only about 2 or 3 inches left. Use glass glue to adhere flat-backed crystals along the lid, along the base and in a single horizontal line around the middle. When the lights dim, the LED cube will illuminate the flowers and crystals. With the exception of the flowers, all the items are available online or in craft stores.
