This Mason Jar Jewelry is Cute for Rustic Weddings

Mason jars are a staple for rustic weddings, and although they’ve been trending for a long time, we still see those darling jars everywhere we look.

These pieces would make cute gift ideas for the bride and bridesmaids who loves all things rustic or country. Today we’re sharing two mason jar bracelets and a necklace from Ellen B Keepsakes, a petite pair of earrings we spotted at Obsessories, and a darling mason jar jewelry dish by Zinnia Designs. Enjoy all the mason jar lovin’ below!

These Bridesmaid Sweatpants Make an Awesome Gift for Weddings

Bridesmaid Sweatpants

by sister9designs

When it comes to getting ready for your wedding, what will you wear? If you want your bridesmaids to be just as cute and cozy as you, these name sweatpants are the answer! While we adore these shirts and these incredibly soft robes, sweatpants are a favorite new idea for getting ready. And it’s easy to see why! Sweatpants are cozy. Comfy. Lounge-ready. Spa-ready. You can customize the letter color, so you can easily coordinate with your wedding or her favorite shade. Plus, since these sweatpants are personalized with their names instead of “Bridesmaid”, they are more versatile. Your girls will love to wear their sweatpants while getting ready before the wedding, and again before date night, en route to yoga, while unwinding with a glass of wine, or just to lounge around at home on a lazy Sunday morning.

These Tank Tops on Etsy Make the Best Shirts for Weddings

It’s time for the handmade wedding find of the day! See what you’ve missed in the archives. Better yet, go ahead and do this so you never miss a post.

Have you been searching for cute tank tops for weddings but your search has come up short? Do you want something unique, perhaps even something you can wear while getting ready and even afterward? Then you’ll love what we’ve found for you today! These tank tops were spotted over at Emily Steffen and they’re bound to be your new favorites. This first tank top is today’s handmade-a-day find and instead of saying ‘Bride’, it says, “Today is the Best Day Ever”. This means you can wear it on your wedding day and every day following. And shouldn’t your wedding and every day after be the best day ever? We think so, too! Wear it at your bachelorette bash, on your wedding day, honeymoon, and even lounging around the house watching Netflix marathons together. Every day in love is the best day in my book.

But first…

Why These Shirts Are Extra Awesome

Unlike other tank tops that can fit weird and shrink upwards when you wash them (ugh, that is the worst), these tanks are ultra soft and flowy. They are designed to drape and accentuate your shape naturally. You can wash these (no dryer — line dry, please) and they’ll come out great (according to reviews, they even get a bit roomier, so size accordingly). Also, they are roomy enough to fit over your hair and makeup, so you don’t have to worry about messing up your ‘do. Take a look!

And the fun doesn’t stop there. If you want something with a little minty color, try this one on for size. It reads, “Today is perfectly wonderful”.

And these, too — “Oh, yay!” — “Oh Happy Day” — and “I am super duper loved”. Your bridesmaids will love to wear them too, and not just on the big day!

And this one: “You & I, We’re Better Together”.

Multi Wear Bridesmaid Dress

Even if your color palette doesn’t include pink, you have to admit — this pink multi wear bridesmaid dress is pretty incredible. We picked it as today’s #HANDMADEADAY find for three reasons:

1) it’s one dress, worn many ways, so bridesmaids will appreciate its versatility

2.) It is long and flowy, so it won’t fly up un the summer (and will keep them warmer in the fall)

3) It is handmade and (bonus!) — UNDER $130

You’ll pretty much be Bride of the Year with a multi wear bridesmaid dress because your bridesmaids can wear a dress that flatters them best. And I think everyone can appreciate that! We spotted it at BL Couture and it’s available in any color under the sun.
