I love to see imaginative pairings within wedding décor; for example, rustic with modern or classic with chic. A trending combination I have seen recently is the use of silver mercury glass centerpieces with really big flowers, such as a bundle of white and blush peonies. These will catch your eye and create a lovely atmosphere of bold silver with overflowing, fresh flowers.
Mercury glass, also called silvered glass, has been around for centuries. Authentic mercury glass is actually silvered throughout the process within each layer of the blown glass, so not only does it look unique, it actually is. It’s timeless and elegant, and it can be used in so many ways, such as candleholders and dinnerware.
Pairing the glass with large flowers such as roses, hydrangeas, or peonies really make a statement in the middle of a reception table. Peonies would be my top choice for floral arrangements with mercury glass because they are big, lush and beautiful flowers, and the endless layers of pedals give off such a delicate look. Silvered glass is versatile and fitting for any season. If you want to incorporate it into a fall or winter wedding, I would suggest using fresh roses in darker colors such as orange and red. Pottery Barn has some fantastic mercury glass vases and I highly recommend to use them around your house afterwards as they’re such great additions.
Don’t be afraid of the shine – be bold! A daring combination can make a big difference in your wedding décor. Good luck!
