Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? We hope you’re ready to get back to wedding planning because we have a week chock-full of inspiration for you! For starters, let’s talk about these mason jar table numbers by Jo of Love Live N Create. Table numbers don’t need to be boring; couples are now using table numbers as an additional way to emphasize their wedding theme. Find out why these particular mason jar table numbers are so wonderful to use for your wedding…
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…
Hanging Mason Jar Vases
The right size for hanging mason jar vases is 16 oz (1 pint). This is the perfect size mason jar because your flowers and the amount of water you will need won’t make these jars too heavy to hang. We recommend hanging them from the back of each chair along the aisle (use a heavy wire and pliers around the base to create a loop; secure tightly and hang from a chair back).< Note: if you are making mason jar hanging vases, you'll want to make sure you use these. It will keep your flowers looking perfect all day long./p>

If you prefer, you can display your chic mason jar hanging vases from shepherd’s hooks along the aisle way. Want to make your own? Here’s an easy tutorial on how to make hanging mason jar flower vases.
Hope it helps, Marie!

Hello, loves! Happy Monday! We hope you had an incredible weekend. We’re kicking off a brand new week of handmade wedding goodness and we couldn’t be more excited about the week ahead! Today, we’re sharing the top five new wedding details we’re loving which includes a little bit of everything from the web. We found a killer wedding up-do hairstyle, an easy to DIY personalized wedding vase, a gorgeous ring (you may require immediately), and more! So, grab that first cup of coffee for the week (I’ve got mine right here in all of its mocha-flavored goodness) and get ready as we unleash five wedding details you’re sure to love. Enjoy!
Top 5 Wedding Details This Week
We love wedding hairstyle inspiration! This incredible bridal updo hairstyle is perfect for a vintage wedding! Great job by Hair and Makeup by Steph and photographer Lindsey Shaun (+ beautiful bride Jenaya!)
Gorgeous Wedding Up-do
“What a Difference a Day Makes” Print
This print would make a great wedding gift for your favorite couple… or, buy it yourself to display at your reception and afterward in your home. The print is by CoCoStine Designs and can include important dates in your relationship, like the date you met, got engaged, and your wedding date. Cute idea!
Struck By Love
The Ultimate Heart Ring
I stumbled upon Paula B Design‘s shop and I’m glad I did. Her initial ring collection is fabulous enough, but this heart ring really struck a chord with me. This heart is huge: what a statement piece! I think this would make a fantastic bridesmaid or Maid of Honor gift.
Personalized Bridesmaid Jars
Last but not least, take a peek at these fun DIY personalized bridesmaid jars spotted at Project Wedding created by Oh Happy Day. Bridesmaids carry bouquets and need somewhere to stow them during the reception, right? Add a little creativity into the mix with a personalized glass vase / jar she can re-use after the wedding. And, it’s super easy (+ inexpensive, too). Love this.
Discuss: Which wedding details (above) do you love?

Hi, lovelies! We hope you’re having an amazing, relaxing 4th of July weekend. Yesterday we showed you a pretty blue-and-white DIY striped skirt and we’re continuing the crafting craze with these DIY terra cotta pots. These pretty little pots are perfect for bridal shower or wedding centerpieces, parties, or summer BBQs. These pots are easy-to-DIY and you can use any color fabric of your choosing, which means it will complement your party theme perfectly. Use prints and patterns (shown) for a touch of whimsy!
Just fill with potting soil, some fabulous flowers, and enjoy. I am definitely making these!
This mason jar centerpiece is easy-to-DIY for your wedding! Adding candlelight creates a romantic atmosphere and these mason jars will add both a rustic and whimsical touch. First, you’ll need mason jars (you can buy them in bulk here for about $1 each) and fill with water. Next, tie a decorative ribbon (or raffia, as shown below) to the top of the jar in a bow. Place a floating candle (preferably long burning) in each jar and group approximately 3-4 jars together on each table. Light each candle and enjoy!
DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces
**EB TIP: These DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces can also be made into favors. Use the lanterns to provide light to your wedding reception; add a tag to the handle with your name and wedding date. During the reception, instruct guests to take a mason jar lantern home. If you’re worried about open flames, use a plain mason jar (skip adding the water) and place a flameless battery-operated tealight candle in each jar. My sister did this for her wedding and it was such a fun idea!

Selecting a centerpiece for any event can be a daunting task that tends to be more difficult for weddings. After spending months of planning – and perhaps crafting – your wedding centerpieces, they ought to be both memorable and unique. One of the first aspects of your decor seen by guests is the centerpiece, so make it a good one! Keep in mind that both color and texture are equally important when selecting the centerpiece. Also, a centerpiece does not necessarily have to be large-and-in-charge. In fact, some of my favorite centerpieces through the years have been subtle, sweet, and simple – a little bit goes a long way. For instance, these unique wedding centerpieces spotted at Floresdelsol are made of dried floral and plant textures (such as moss, spring thistles, and status flowers) so they are on the simple side yet offer bright vivid colors and fresh textures. It is rare to find centerpieces, such as these, that can be used after the wedding as decor in your love nest; in fact, the flowers are dried so they can be admired forever.
Now, tell us: which one is your favorite? Do you like dried floral centerpieces?

I love the vintage, textured look of milk glass vases. The price tag, however, can be pretty hefty when you are planning to use a cluster on each table as your wedding centerpieces. Authentic vintage milk glass vases can cost upwards of $30 or more depending on its quality and age. It’s easy to make diy milk glass centerpieces using ordinary glass – in fact, this project can cost very little if you search thrift stores or garage sales for glass vases. I’ll bet you even have a few glass vases in your house that would be perfect for this project. But first, let’s take a peek at a real wedding inspiration piece styled by Justin & Mary Marantz and spotted via Pinterest from Style Me Pretty.
To do it yourself all you need is puffy paint, white spray paint, and glass vases (you can even use aluminum cans). Take a peek at this tutorial for details by Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This.
Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend!
