Ceremony Decor Ideas

I have been thinking about ideas to add some character and personality to our big day. I have come to the conclusion that flowers in mason jars may be the most charming accent to any wedding. I have seen them as table decorations but what I would really love is to have them hanging from shepherds hooks lining the aisle. Sure, adding the handle to hang the jar will require a little DIY on my behalf (I am terrible at crafts of any kind, no matter the level of simplicity) but I am willing to give it a go because my love knows no boundaries and it will make our wedding that much more adorable. (Oh, how I wish they sold them handle attached.) In addition to the jars, I would like to place decorative candle lanterns on every other hook for some extra pizazz. I couldn't find any photos of lanterns on hooks but I did find some great lanterns though for a great price! I've made up my mind about this one hundred percent. Except I haven't decided if I want white lanterns with white shepherds hooks or black lanterns with black shepherds hooks. Why are the tiniest decisions so hard to decide upon? 

Not crazy about the ribbon and it hanging from the chair, but the small white flowers make it worth posting.

I love the idea of them lining the aisle! My sister had a major DIY wedding and did her flowers in mason jars as centerpieces. I couldn't find the final product (which looked amazing!), but here is a link to the process: http://high-tide-or-low-tide.blogspot.com/2010/07/wedding-flowers-take-3.html

The little details do add a lot of character, your big day is going to be perfect! :)

I love your outlook on the idea of a wedding -- I didn't have any break downs planning mine and was fairly casual about it all. I just wanted to marry my best friend - the rest never seemed as important.

I LOVE the shepherds hooks lining the aisle =)

I LOVE gerbera daisies! They were my wedding flower. Love them hanging in the mason jars.
