I love when unexpected items can be used as gorgeous wedding decor. Sometimes with purpose, sometimes purely for aesthetics, the wine barrel is a fabulous way to display items, frame a ceremony area, create a dramatic backdrop or use a hundred other nifty ways!
How great is the clever wine barrel table for a lemonade station, or a place to show off gorgeous flowers and guide guests, or use a fun way to showcase escort cards?
Here a romantic wine barrel backdrop behind this sweetheart table makes for a great photo. Or using them as unexpected seating – as the adorable bride and groom below, or expected seating – as tables in the lounge or cocktail area.
The hurricane and candle on top of this barrel had a twin and they both framed the ceremony area to create a warm glow. And this wine barrel “picnic basket” was for an engagement shoot and I think it might just be the coolest wine barrel decor idea ever!
