Wedding Wednesday DIY

Weddings can be expensive. For my wedding I did a lot of DIY to keepĀ the costs down. I am also very big on reusing old things, such as jars from food, drinks, etc. Often times I use them for vases. It’s just as good as buying brand new vases. With a little love, you can get those jars looking great!

A couple weeks ago, I did the Bride World Expo in Costa Mesa. For my booth, I wanted to bring in some nature. So I grabbed some of my mason jars and wrapped someĀ Jute twine around the bottoms…and viola! I got a cute vase! Take a look. I think that they came out really well. Something very simple can be very elegant. I got lots of compliments on them. Lots of brides taking pictures wanting to use that idea for their wedding! So, what do you have to lose? Go ahead and look around your house and get crafting…green style!


Wednesday Weddings!

ImageI thought that it would be good to not only talk about beauty, but green weddings as well! I will soon be a part of (hopefully) a website called…Green Bride Guide! It is very similar to the Knot, only this is for Brides who prefer to green their wedding. You are able to purchase stuff for your wedding, locate local vendors, etc. Another cool aspect is you can find ideas based on the theme of your wedding. There is also an option for you to create a registry on it.

If you are looking to green your entire wedding, this would be a good place to start! I will hopefully have a profile on there just as I do the Knot.

Be inspired…
