Unusual Vases

Don't you love these crystal vases? Add some simple white flowers and they make the perfect centerpiece. Floral designers agree that a great vase adds a luxe look to your flowers. So look at these crystal vases...gorgeous!

But look again--they aren't lead crystal, they're ice crystals! All these displays are carved from ice giving your tables a dramatic look without the investment in lead crystal. No Waterford or Orrefors here. Just their ice counterparts.  They evolve as your wedding reception does, changing ever so slightly as they melt. Consider finding a good ice carver who can bring your wedding from the great to the incredible!

The ice designs shown here are from Okamoto Studios. These are not inexpensive, so you may want to consider using just one on the bridal party's table. Go with regular crystal on the guest tables. Or if you want to splurge  (or are having a small wedding) go for the ice art!

So you whole bridal party can carry peacock bouquets. There are also boutonierres for the men and corsages for the mother of the bride and groom

Looking for a way to integrate peacock feathers into your outdoor ceremony? Try these kissing balls crafted by Ashley as well that are hung from shepherd's crooks. They designate the aisle and rows of chairs as well as adding a splash of color to your outdoor ceremony venue. They take those ho-hum folding chairs to the next level!

Also if you are having a flower girl consider having Ashley craft her a small kissing ball covered with peacock feathers to carry down the aisle instead of strewing petals. She'll love having something she can keep forever once the wedding is over.

Ashley has other peacock options as well, so visit her Etsy store and browse all day.  You don't want to overdo the peacock feathers, so choose with care!
