Could you spray paint coffee beans gold (or silver, or black, or one of your wedding colors) and fill the flasks with those? Or could you fill them with water and drop a colored glow stick in each one the morning of the wedding?

How about something crystalized?  Might look science-y.  Water softener salt (crystals, not pellet – very cheap)?  Bath crystals (probably more expensive)?

Rock candy crystals might be neat looking, and I would think they would be okay sitting for a week in the jars – and comes in colors!

Sequins perhaps?

Sand?

Acrylic rocks-I love these and I would get them in Amber color for the feel you are going for. Not sure how large the top of the flask is but you can put an amber submersible light that can be controlled by a remote and put the acrylic rocks over it so it will not show.

Katepants:  I second the pp who suggested salt cyrstals. I think they would look lovely next to a couple of tealights or votives. Maybe rock salt? Or epsom salt? Something chunky and full of texture.

Katepants:  What about small pearls or this fiber cotten-candy looking stuff:

 

Check out ‘Save on Crafts’ under their vases and case fillers. They have a few ideas and are reasonably priced.

 I think you can buy scrabble pieces with the Periodic Table of Elements or you could print off your own and cover normal scrabble tiles.

I like the idea of crystal candies!<br /><br />What about different colored water crystals or water beads.  They come in different colors, they take a day or two to fully hydrate, and they actually last quite a while!<br />

Westwood:  How were you able to get the sequins to stick to only the top and bottom of the bottle?
