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…

Gorgeous Wedding Up-do
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!
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!
It’s Emmaline Bride’s 2nd Birthday this week, and we’re celebrating by giving away a new handmade prize a day! Today we’re featuring these incredible wooden flowers by Splattered With Paint. While they may look dainty and unique, these flowers are cut out of oak and are extremely strong, with green wire stems. Perfect as gifts for bridesmaids, or year round floral décor.
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.
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 Sarah True & photographed by Justin & Mary Marantz and spotted via Pinterest from Style Me Pretty.
