The Glass Collection

I have been doing some research lately, and found sources for all of the decor glassware (candleholders, vases, etc) that I’ll need for the wedding. And then I had an attack of conscience.

I was standing in my FMIL’s kitchen, and I happened to glance at the display of glassware in the dining room, and realized — she has a LOT of red and clear glassware. As does my mother. As do I, for that matter. And I thought about Lisa’s post a few weeks ago on Vintage Glam about vintage glassware, and I thought, hm…why do I really need every single piece of glassware to match? Really?

So I decided that I’m going to use a little of both. I’m considering lining the aisle with cylinder vases and floating candles at the wedding — it ends up working out cheaper than actually renting aisle candles, and I think it’s a lovely look.

So, I’m going to buy vases for that, so everything will be uniform, and then for the reception, I think I’m going to use borrowed and flea market/yard sale finds, which will be better budget-wise, and also allow me to get some cool vintage pieces for our house. Best of both worlds!
