How many weddings have you been to where the centerpieces are three glass cylinders, all different heights, together in the middle of the table, complete with floating candles in each cylinder? Such a gorgeous look but perhaps overdone these days?  We love the look of the glass, especially when combined with candlelight and know there are so many other ways to arrange the cylinders in new and unique ways.  We’ve gathered up some inspirational images below…hope you see something you love!

Consider adding fruit and flowers that match your wedding colors into a large-diameter glass cylinder.  You can play with so much with texture and style here!

Mix-and-match your glass cylinder with other containers to add dimension and interest to your tables.  I love, love, love the use of different materials here, from the twigs, logs and twine – who wants to guess what the rest of this wedding looked like (I bet it was gorgeous!)

These flower-topped beauties are stunning!  Taller than has been typical, the lights must have really shined off the crystals hanging within these cylinders, don’t you think? (We also have these gorgeous beauties already created and available for sale on Wedding Recycle!)

A really beautiful option if you’re having longer rectangular tables for your guests or maybe for your head table.  Sitting nicely on top of a lace table runner, this look combines shorter cylinders with votive candles and this floral garland.  Voila!  You’ve created created gorgeous romance and light like the picture below!

Any wine drinkers in the crowd?  What about these “cylinder-within-a-cylinder” centerpieces, where the candlelight shines through wine corks?  A great way to incorporate your theme, or passions, into your decor.

I also really love these cylinders perched on top of the gold pillar candleholders.  Adds height, light and dimension, especially when combined with shorter floral accents or even tealight candles below the taller pillars.

In one of our Wedding Trends posts, we mentioned how popular garden-inspired florals are going to be this year. How about combining those types of flowers into various shapes and sizes of glass cylinders?  Like this photo below, where typical cylinders were combined with beakers and flasks to make these gorgeous arrangements.  Science-themed wedding, anyone?

Lindsay Recknell co-founded Wedding Recycle out of pure necessity…the fifteen centerpiece vases on the living room floor had got to go! But finding a targeted audience to sell them to was the tricky part – not just anyone wanted fifteen fish bowls for their home. Thus Wedding Recycle was born – a place to connect with other new newlyweds and recently engaged couples, sharing ideas, and décor, with each other. Lindsay has always been an entrepreneur, a multi-dimensional self-starter prone to acts of randomness and dynamic ventures in her life. In addition to consulting as a data analyst during her “day job”, Lindsay’s role at Wedding Recycle is everything – business development, content creation, media correspondent and community liaison. If you contact Wedding Recycle, it’s likely you’ll get a response from Lindsay first and from that moment, you’ll understand and experience the passion, dedication, joy and motivation she has for the Wedding Recycle community and the wedding industry itself.
