Using wine bottles and corks for decorations

Will you be using place cards or assigning seats at your rehearsal dinner? If so, look at this cute and super easy rehearsal dinner decoration idea. To make these,using an exacto knife carefully, shave off the side to create a flat surface. Next, using the exacto knife, cut a slit on the opposite side. Create the placecards on your computer, customize the font and add the names. We did them ourselves on card stock but Amazon has these Ivory Pearl Placecards, 48 Count with computer template information included (83004) Read the directions carefully and do a test print on a page to make sure all is aligned. Look at the size of your corks before ordering so that you can make sure the cards are not too large, otherwise they will tip over. You can get wine corks in bulk from Amazon. Here is the link to get 100 Recycled Premium Natural Wine Corks that will work perfectly for these place card holders. Easier than collecting and cleaning your own!

This is another beautiful and easy rehearsal dinner decoration idea for centerpieces. Our daughter's was at a wonderful Italian restaurant, so her mother-in-law added flowers to wine bottles and inserted the table seating list right into the arrangement. Notice how pretty it looked with a few wildflowers and roses placed in the wine bottles. Wouldn't the cork placecards be cute with this centerpiece! Start asking family and friends to save those empty wine bottles.

Use Desserts as Rehearsal Dinner Decorations

For our son's rehearsal dinner, we used the desserts as decorations. In honor of the couple's alma maters - Universities of Michigan and West Virginia, who share the same school colors.. we had a Gold and Blue Dessert table to celebrate our "A-Maize-ing Couple".. a play on Michigan's Maize and Blue.
