Just wondering if anyone out there has used wine crates for centerpieces at their wedding? I have received about 10 wine boxes and would LOVE to incorporate them into my wedding centerpieces, but am wondering if they would be too big??? If you have used them, I would love to see pictures or get suggestions!
Also, I will still need to purchase a few more, does anyone know where I can find them without spending a TON on shipping!?

@futuremrsram2014: I didn’t do it and am not sure where you could buy them (maybe call local wine vendors/vineyards-they may give them to you for free!), but I found nice inspiration pics…hope they help a little!

@futuremrsram2014: Common dimensions would be 19 1/2″ L X 13″ W X 7″ H, so they are not too high, but they may take up too much space on the table. What is the size of your crates?
What size tables are you using? If you are having round tables, how many people are you seating at each table? That will help figure out how much space you have leftover for a centerpiece. The easiest way to do this is to do a mockup at home. Drawa circle with chalk on the floor, set out the place settings, including stemware, table number etc and measure the unused space in the center.
As far as getting more, isn’t the Santa Rita Hills a wine producing area? Have you contacted local wineries? They might even be willing to loan you some for the free advertising.

It will depend how big your tables are but I think it would look beautiful

@julies1949: Thank you for all the great ideas!! I really should try a mock up like you said and see if it looks too big! Thanks again 🙂

@futuremrsram2014: They’re super gorgeous depending on your table. I had a friend who had super long tables (seating 16 people maybe?) and the wine boxes were oblong as well so it worked

@futuremrsram2014: I loved the idea of using them and I don’t think they would be too high. Do you have any wineries within driving distance? Might be worth it to take a road trip if so to save on shipping!
Here are a few more that I think are very pretty!
