Wine Barrels are the perfect choice to compliment any outdoor wedding, especially if you are going for a more country chic flair. They work beautifully as tables, whether it’s just for decoration, such as a resting spot for flowers and candles, or they are also becoming very popular as table legs for a dessert buffet or cake table.
Wine barrels are an obvious trend as a backdrop for a vineyard wedding (they are wine barrels, after all) but wine barrels are now becoming a big part of any outdoor wedding, everything from a barn wedding in the country to an outdoor wedding by the lake.
Wine barrels for a wedding are also the green bride’s choice! They are economical, cheap, and reusable even after the wedding. You can reuse them in your garden as flower pots or cut them in half and use them as side tables to go along with your outdoor patio furniture.
Incorporating the wine barrels into the cake table or dessert buffet is my personal favorite use of wine barrels at a wedding. Just look at how incredibly charming a barrel made out of old wood and metal can be!
You might also want to consider using wine barrels as part of your aisle decorations. You can place them behind the alter, and then top them with plush romantic flowers to soften the feel. Or, use them in any area that needs a little bit of sprucing up. Tall, flowing flowers and plants look amazing on top of a wine barrel, like the one shown below. You can also use fabric such as burlap and lace as a table cloth to add even more charm.
