We’ll be having a sweetheart table during our reception. In past weddings I’ve attended, most of the brides used their bridesmaids’ bouquets to decorate the head table. I’d love to use our bridesmaids’ bouquets as some decor during the reception (sitting up in vases) so they won’t go to waste.
Any suggestions where they can be placed?

My BMs put their bouquets in vases at the tables they were sitting at.
I was also in a wedding where we put our bouquets around the cake.

Cake table, bar, gift table, guestbook table, the table where they will be sitting.

All of our bouquets, including my own, were at the cake table (we had a sweetheart table as well). At the ceremony altar, we had a unity candle set that was flanked by two small floral arrangements that were brought to our sweetheart table for the reception.

I agree with pp, put them around the cake, by the guest book and any other tables you may have

Is there a reason you don’t want to use them on the SH table? That’s what I did, my bouquet was in the center with the bridesmaids’ on each side. It looked good.

I’ve seen them either at the cake table, guestbook table, or at the head table in vases. Also, Dollar Tree has $1 vases that work perfectly for holding bouquets. Here’s a pic of my bouquet sitting in one of these vases:

Mine was at our sweetheart table – that was the only “centerpiece.” My only BM’s was… somewhere else, in a vase. Probably at her table. It was so not a big deal to me. 🙂
If you have more BM’s, put them all by the cake or gifts or bar or, whatever. Just let them know, or write their name on the bottom of a vase if you want them to be able to take it home.

There was a fireplace at our venue that we placed them on:

@ladybee091413: My cousin got married Saturday and there were empty mason jars on the tables. I assume they were intended for the bridesmaids flowers. I am probably the only one who noticed they were not in them.

we had the girls put their bouquets at our table, along with mine. i only had 3 bridesmaids, so all the bouquets fit perfectly.

I purchased vases from the dollar store, during dinner they’ll put them in the vases.
