It’s a month out til the wedding and I just flat out do not care about the details anymore. I’m so beyond stressed out and too overloaded on choices to think straight about any decorative details.
So, Bees, please vote on a drink dispenser for pink lemonade. The theme is rustic vintage. Thanks in advance!
Option 1: Apothecary Jar Style
Option 2: Hammered Glass with Scroll Stand
Option 3: Fleur De Lis Hexagonal Style
Option 4: Cylindrical Style with Chained Blackboard

I have just delt with having 4 of these things at a shower. ALmost every single one was awful! The spigots either leak, or do not let enough liquid through. Do good research and read reviews. And try it with water before committing to it!!!

I voted for the last one, but honestly, they would all work! Just get the cheapest :).

I like the look of the first one. I agree with MsTargaryen that you should test them out before the wedding.

I like the last one, specially with the little chalkboard sign. Definately test them out first though.

I’ll need to order it online and won’t have a chance to test it and exchange it before the wedding if it doesn’t work. If anyone has used such a thing before and knows of a brand that is generally reliable, please let me know.

I like the chalkboard sign, but I don’t think it’s necessary. I’d get the cheap one. Or get a punch bowl, which ever you are more likely to use again. (I’m right there with you on the screw it on details though.)

seriously, they are all very nice and would work for your wedding. personally, i would pick the one that you would use the most after the wedding.

I think the last one is the most versatile for you to use after the wedding too. They’re all nice though

The spout placement on the first one looks like it’ll take longer to get to the point where it needs to be refilled or tipped forward to pour… does that make sense? There’s much more volume above than below that point.

I think the entire picture of the first one is so beautiful. However, I decided to not let that sway me, since I decided to try to picture the actual dispenser that I inherently liked the best, #2, with the pink lemonade in it.
Then I realized that I definitely like #2 the best, not only for its looks but also for its greater stability. The first jar, though light, airy, and beautiful, likely would be far less stable than the second jar.

What is wedding bee for if not to get help with decisions? 🙂
I *love* the first one! I think it fits your theme the best.

I LOLed at the title of your post, that’s about how I’m feeling right now.
I voted for the first one, it’s gorgeous. But honestly, I’d just go with the cheapest one.

@Taeyers: This. We just used a costco one last holiday weekend and honestly forget about looks – it apparently annoys people to no end to know there is liquid below the spout and someone will invariably try to pick it up and tilt to get that liquid out.
Look for one that has the spout at the lowest point to get to all of your liquid, otherwise the waste will bother people (honestly, it drove poeple nuts). Number 1 looks the most useful in terms of getting to all your liquid which I assume is the actual purpose you want it for in the first place.
