I love them! But they aren’t really vintqage. I would totally use them, because I think they look great. But if you’re looking for real vintage I’d go for something more natural and less crafty. Like milkglass or old tins or something that really is (or looks) old. Bit if you don’t care so much about it being vintage I think what you have is great and looks awesome!

Then they’re perfect! I love the colors and the varied hieghts. I’d try setting them up with all the other stuff you’ll need on the table (plates, silverware, glasses, salt and pepper, butter dish, bread basket, table number, menus, etc.). Depending on how much other stuff will be on the table, these may be enough. If not, then you could think about some small stuff to fill things out. Depending on other elements you could include just about anything. river rock, fake crystals, bud vases, small tins, pictures, confetti, votives, small toys, more flowers directly on the table, chotchsky’s from places you’ve visited, etc. Scrunched up fabric can also make a good base.

maybe if you have any flea markets around your area you can search for old looking photo frames or something too, and putting pics of old weddings from like, the 1800’s in them. could be cute!

Are you wiring a stem to the flowers? If so I would do 3 or 5 in each bottle depending on the size of the flowers. Fluff the flowers out a bit more- the white one in the bottle on the left looks a bit stiff and vertical.

Vintage hardcover books also make a great base. You can find books that have covers in your colors, or titles that reflect you and your FI.

If the two of you are into travel at all, you could wrap the books in old maps
