I had 5 vases on the head table, and we used them to decorate that.

Our plan is to put vases on the cake table and then use the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets for decoration.

I hung onto mine when I was a bridesmaid. We didn’t have a head table.

We will be putting them in large vases on the head table, which will serve as the floral decorations on the head table.  No way they are going to carry them around all night, so we might as well use them!

I’m thinking of putting out some vases (or one larger vase) in my “lounge” area and having the bridesmaids’ bouquets dropped there by our day-of coordinator.

I also put a vase for each girl on our head table, and they all stuck them in water during the evening and then took them home. I threw mine in the bouquet toss.

I wanted then displayed on the head table or as a centrepiece however I didn’t communicate this before hand and they were randomly laying around the site, even saw one just laying in the grass 🙁

My friend had a small budget so she put our bouquets in a vase on each table and that was part of the center piece for the tables.

@MrsRedPumps:  Our BMs used them for decor on the head table during the reception and took them with them at the end. You can kind of see this in the photo below as I did the same thing with mine.

Anytime I am a Bridesmaid or Best Man I like to take the bouquet home and enjoy it for a bit. 🙂
