Wedding Trend We Love: Glass-Enclosed Centerpieces

Wedding Style & Decor

Usually reception centerpieces feature flowers arranged in pretty vases, but lately, we've been noticing a recent trend: florals enclosed in glass vessels. We love this idea and here's why — by arranging the blooms and greenery beneath glass, you're essentially creating a tabletop vignette that will compel guests to take a closer look. Here are our favorite creative takes on this new floral trend:

Glass Cloches (above): Displaying fresh blooms beneath a bell-shaped dome is such a creative and unexpected idea.

Glass Display Box (Floral): Enclosing a lush arrangement of spring blooms like lilacs and fritillaria in a glass display box gives the centerpiece a cabinet-of-curiosities feel.

Glass Display Box (Modern): For something cool and unexpected, fill glass boxes with spiky air plants — the modern-desert vibe was so perfect for this couple's Palm Springs celebration.
