There were a few things I knew I wanted to incorporate from the beginning. Mason jars have always reminded me of home. My mother has a large collection of vintage ones around the house and I love how versatile they can be. Of course, this was before the mason jar wedding craze but it is an element I have stuck with. I was lucky enough to meet a fellow San Diego blogger who has given me her VERY large collection of jars. She designed our insanely incredible stationery too (it’s crazy who you meet through blogging!). We are also incorporating old bottles that I’ve either had around the house or found via eBay and Etsy. I discovered that buying online can add up very quickly (shipping!) so most of the shopping will be done at thrift stores once we get to the east coast. My mother has been furiously gathering vintage dessert plates and making burlap table runners. I had a vision of making 150 napkins myself but scratched that off the to-do list when I spotted these napkins at IKEA that were VERY close to what I had envisioned.
