The aged look of the mercury glass against a single pink peony is charming and sweet.

Move over, clear vases. See ya later, milk glass. The new trend in wedding decor is mercury glass! It's the perfect mix of dainty and vintage, with a rustic, rough-around-the-edges, antique feel. Silver or gold (and we've seen some interesting white, too!), we imagine them bundled together as a cluster of small votives, twinkling on cocktail tables or near the bar, or as the centerpiece to a perfectly placed table setting. Fill them with lush pink peonies or let them stand alone; either way, they're sure to grab your guests' attention. They're easy to find, too! Start by looking in your local thrift store, antique store or hip boutique. Check out the slideshow for some inspiration on how to take your glass from drab to fab!
