I've noticed in my wedding shooting days that serve-yourself hydration stations were becoming more and more popular. And for good reason — no need to hire staff to re-fill your drinks, your guests can get refreshed at will, great for weddings on hot days, and they also look really pretty! Just look at those beehive beverage dispensers pictured above. When any of these are filled with colored liquid like bright sun teas, fruit filled water, or sangria, they're like refreshing colorful wedding decor.
If you're thinking of setting out some drink dispensers, here are a few options that will not only serve up yummy liquids, but will look good doing it — and match your wedding decor from vintage-style to nerdy or gothic.
This globe was the dispenser that kicked off my search for more amazing finds.
This green hand-blown bubble glass dispenser has a vintage charm that makes me want to make this a permanent part of my home decor.
This Creativewear three gallon beverage dispenser is UNBREAKABLE, bitches! This will last through ALL your raging parties — wedding and beyond.
This one is also by Creativewear, but it's got some cool texture detail to it that I really like.
Loving the extra level of storage on this guy. The bottom section can be filled with ice for cooling beverages, or removed for serving ice cubes or fruit garnish. And I love an elevated spigot.
And now we're back into fancy pants silver dispenser land with mouth-blown glass and a nickel-plated, tarnish-resistant metal base.
I just LOVE the look of this Artland pedestal-style beverage jar.
This one, with its hammered glass and wrought iron-looking stand, would be perfect for a goth wedding.
Check out the double-stacking action on this guy!
You don't always see beverage dispensers that are square… AND ribbed for her pleasure.
It's no globe, but I'm digging the hexagonal shape and I LOVE the pretty blue color of this 3 1/4 gallon recycled glass jar.
Ooh: A set of three glass gallon drink dispensers with stand — how convenient!
For smaller weddings, this dual dispenser only takes up the space of ONE, and has storage underneath.
Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and end it with this fire hydrant drink dispenser because, I can't possibly beat this. Can you? No seriously, we love stuff like this — let me know if I've missed a funky beverage dispenser.
