Are you looking for chic ceremony decor? Just use hanging mason jar vases! But first… you have to admit that mason jars have pretty much taken over the wedding world. We’ve seen our beloved pint-sized jars used as drinking glasses, projects and insanely creative mason jar ideas, and we’ve even seen a plastic version of mason jars for non-glass venues. That’s how much they’re loved. Today we’re answering an Ask Emmaline question from Marie, who asks, “I’m hanging mason jar vases for my ceremony aisle. What size should I use?” Read on to find out…
One of the easiest projects to DIY? Candy mason jar favors! Fill a half-pint mason jar (or, I think these are pretty neat, too) with your favorite candy and add a simple ‘thank you’ tag. This couple apparently has good taste, too: they chose full-size Reese’s (my fave) and Kit-Kat bars, among other delectable treats. YUM. Talk about a favor that won’t be left on tables afterward.
DIY: Candy Mason Jar Favors
Haven’t you heard? Orange isn’t the new black, purple is! (Speaking of, I have yet to finish Season 2 of OITNB. What did you think of it, dear friends? Tweet at me.) There are so many incredible purple wedding ideas out there, inspired by scent (lavender), flowers (lilac or orchid), or particular themed designs (such as peacock). Purple pairs brilliantly with hot pink or lime green for a bold wedding, or grey for a sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. In today’s post, we’re sharing a round-up of fourteen stunning purple wedding ideas including a gorgeous pair of heels (+ your chance to win ‘em!), insanely pretty jewelry (all of which I added to my own wish list, thankyouverymuch), a purple wedding dress, and a purple wedding cake which seems too pretty to eat (but you know I’d eat it anyway ‘cos, duh, it’s still cake). Let’s get down to business, shall we?

Ok — so you’re planning a vintage country wedding, rustic wedding, or western themed wedding and you love the look of mason jars. Problem is, you want those vintage mason jars that everyone oohs and aahs over but you can’t get your hands on any. Or, you’re like me and you just can’t justify paying $10 per jar at your local antique store for 100+ guests. Fear not, lovely brides, we’ve got the solution for you today. Read on to find out how to make mason jars look old with five creative ideas…
If you love the look of mason jars (especially the ones with handles, like I do!) but your venue prohibits glass, don’t worry — we’ve found a tumbler that everyone will love. These plastic mason jars are made with acrylic and are ideal for your outdoor reception, whether your venue prohibits glass or you want a few for kids (to prevent broken glass). They’re more expensive than regular jars (meaning you’ll probably only want a few for your crew), but they’re cute nonetheless. This one shown is clear with a gray lid, but there are other options available, too.

Hey, mason jar lovers: you thought you’ve seen it all. Until now. Have you seen mason jar shot glasses? These tiny, 2.4oz shot glasses are threaded at the top to look like the real deal. There’s no lid, but then again, you don’t really need one. The front of each glass is appropriately stamped with, simply, “shots”. These mason jar shot glasses make a perfect wedding party gift (I can picture groomsmen toasting the groom with these) or post-celebration with the whole crew. Give them as gifts to your wedding party attendants or buy ‘em in bulk and give them out to guests as a charming barn wedding favor. Check ‘em out up close…
