I'm going jam jar crazy!! How amazing is this wedding table, I'm seriously so inspired and in love with it right now! This is exactly the kind of thing that I want for my wedding centrepieces! I mentioned before that we are doing the little jam jar heart lanterns. I was actually inspired by one that my sister Emma picked up at Powerscourt Shopping Centre in Dublin. Now I have a different idea, these glass jars of random sizes look so cool and I have some other plans for the heart ones...
This is what the heart ones look like...how cute?! Anyway, Jonathan managed to find them online for a good deal (here). I chose not to do flowers for the bridesmaids...and instead I think I'm going to do these! I just think they're so adorable and the heart is really fitting for a wedding. The wire makes them easy to hold and the bridesmaids will look so pretty with their faces all lit up by candlelight!
This bridesmaid is carrying a far fancier and more expensive lantern but you get the general idea. I think it will look so cute! (I have four bridesmaids by the way :) I am still unsure about my flowergirl, because she is only six and I don't want her to accidentally burn herself! So we may have to figure that one out.
After the bridesmaids are done, they can hang them in the trees - oh how sweet! My wedding is at night (the ceremony starts at 6.30pm) so these lanterns will look amazing and light up the place in a really eco-friendly way, hehehe :)
This is the terrace of our hotel where we are getting married and where the reception will take place. I think the candles will fit right in!
Let me know your thoughts! Are you into candles at weddings or are you more of a flowers girl? Also, if you are planning your wedding in Ireland be sure to check out The Perfect Day for an amazing directory of vendors and Irish wedding professionals.
