Mercury Glass Votives from Jelly Jars

One of the easiest ways to pull in a cozier, more romantic atmosphere at your wedding is with candle light. Easy enough, right? As an example, check out these hand-painted mercury glass votives made from quilted jelly jars. We think they’re just the perfect winter wedding accent to add to centerpieces. They were spotted over at Beach Blues (you may remember their gorgeous milk bottles from our round-up). We love these mercury glass votives paired here with silver painted mason jars. Lovely!

Mercury Glass Votives

If you’d like to buy a set of votives like these, visit Beach Blues. You’ll also find lovely painted mason jars, too. We talked about quilted mason jars used for a DIY mojito in a jar and I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately. It’s a nice twist from the traditional smooth mason jar, don’t you think?


Rustic Centerpiece Idea >> Photo of the Day

Detail alert: this rustic centerpiece idea features one of our favorite new finds from Featured Artist, Sweet Carolina Collective: that charming rustic table number! It’s hand-painted and sure to make a statement. This display is one example of how to assemble a rustic wedding centerpiece with a touch of vintage flair. Along with this stunning table number, the centerpiece includes old books, brass candle holders, votive candle holders, and recycled glass bottles. The lace doilies underneath add texture to the look, while incorporating that vintage-inspired feel. This is a lovely look all around!

17 Amazing Wedding Marquee Lights

Get ready to light up your wedding in the most memorable way possible! Hi loves, Emma here and I am positively loving this trend. Marquee lights have been in the wedding spotlight for awhile now, but this is a trend we don’t see going by the wayside anytime soon.

You can use marquee lights in so many interesting ways: light up your bar with a fun cocktails sign or use it to illuminate your wedding date.

Make your own wedding marquee lights

We spotted this A M A Z I N G do it yourself project over at Evan & Katelyn for making your own wedding marquee lights. They used ‘LOVE’ as their sign, but you can customize this project in anything you choose. Only have patience for one letter? Just make one for your new last name. Want one for each of you? Make two, one with your initial and one with your love’s. Want to go all out? J U S T M A R R I E D or T H E B E S T D A Y E V E R would take awhile, but more power to ya.

They made their own for their big day… and here’s the finished product, too!

Oh, and this totally reminds me of A + I. One of our cats would totally photobomb our DIY photo, I just know it.
