Upcycle your wine bottle to tie in with your theme or tell the story of you as a couple, using decoupage, glitter or paint. Or customise the bottle with book pages, photos, maps, tickets… use your imagination.

6. Vase

Soak the labels off your wine bottles, pop some flowers in and hey presto you have a quirky, rustic vase. You can get as creative as you like by spraying the bottles to match your colour scheme, adding hessian and lace, or making DIY glitter bottles.

Wine bottles don’t have to be confined to the reception area; we love this quirky soap bottle dispenser idea. You will find the dispenser top in any good kitchen supplies shop.
