Beer Bottle Inspiration

Corey and I are proud Portlanders in many, many ways. One of our favorite ways to show our pride is drinking beer from one of our many local breweries :) We've talked about how to incorporate our hobbies and things we like to do together into our wedding to make it special and unique to us. One idea we've tossed around is using the growlers many breweries use to give beer to-go as flower vases.

Gina Whittington of the event design firm Clink worked on the tablescape for an annual gala for the Austin Wedding and Event Coordinators organization. The theme was "dive bar chic" and she used simple beer bottles (instead of the growlers we're thinking of using) as vases, and it turned out quite well! Not sure it would work for our wedding tablescapes, but I think it's definitely in the running for our rehearsal dinner.
