5 (New!) Vintage Rustic Save the Date Cards

Happy Wednesday, loves! Emma here and there’s one wedding detail I love right off the bat: the save the date card. I especially love when I receive one as a guest myself, like I did a few weeks ago. I pretty much squealed with glee (just ask Andrew, and my neighbors down the street. Oh, and our mail lady). Save the date cards are guaranteed to get your guests excited for the fun that awaits. But, more importantly, it gives them a heads up so they can plan travel arrangements AND keep the date wide open so they can attend your big day. In the summer, this is especially important as weddings and graduation parties and vacations and barbecues seem to fill up calendars oh-so-quickly. Not that someone would rather go to a grad party or a barbecue instead of your big day, but you get the idea.

Today we’re sharing five (new!) vintage rustic save the date cards handmade by Paper Street Press. And let me tell you, this collection is awe-inspiring! I think you’ll have trouble picking a favorite because I sure did. Enjoy!

Mason Jars with Handles? – Ask Emmaline

We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks, “I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…

How to Keep ‘Em Covered

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you’ll want to keep the mason jars covered until guests are ready to drink from them. You can do one of two things:

1. Add a Lid

A lid can keep your mason jar clear of debris. Try a daisy lid, which has small openings (but will lessen the chance of anything getting in).

A daisy lid also has a hole in the center — perfect for adding your favorite drinking straws!

2. Place them top-down

If you want to save money on lids, skip them altogether! Instead, place the mason jars with the top face-down on your drink table. This will keep jars clean and ready for filling up at the bar!

We hope our advice helped! If you have any additional questions about mason jars as drinking glasses, just let us know. (Start a discussion with a comment below or submit an Ask Emmaline question of your own!) We’re sort of experts on the topic after being such huge fans of them for so long! I even use one at home for iced coffee. :)
