    No one will mind it, and remember, the more stuff you do to it, the harder it is to refill.  If it bugs you that much, put it out of the way but where guests can get it, but don’t sweat a water cooler that looks likwas water cooler.

    Can you sew? Maybe you could make a slip for it in your wedding colors. Or buy some fabric, cut/tear it into strips and wrap ribbon around it?
    Are you looking for a quick and easy fix or would you be willing to put some elbow grease into it?

    @May2013Wedding:  You could easily make a wrap for it.This was made to cover a beer keg.

    I don’t know what Burlap is but I voted for it. I think you should drap something over it that suits the theme of the wedding so I can imagine whatever this Burlap is would suit. Otherwise my next vote would be for white to match the tableclothes.

    I’d probably go with some white fabric to cover it with a burlap ribbon around the belly.

    What about spray painting it? You can buy those paints for plastic (Krylon?) and could spray it totally white then paint on the space on the front that says igloo using chalkboard paint and write on “water.” 

     

    You’d just need to tape up the white and black nozzle part and lid so that you’re only painting the blue which won’t come in contact with the water. It would be a super quick project,

    @NLbride:  Oh, I like that idea.  That way there wouldn’t be any potential for wet fabric to look messy.

    Though I’d still add a bow, because that’s how I roll 🙂

    @NLbride:  Great idea! 

    Also instead of a bow, I think it would be cute for you to make a burlap sign to put around it like this, and then wrap it across the “igloo” part so that its in the middle.
