Brenda's Wedding Blog is your online resource for planning your dream elegant wedding. Helping you find the "wow" in weddings.

This and That . . . plus, a wedding floral DIY favorite

Today's "This and That..." starts off with a lovely summer DIY project from Intimate Weddings on how to hang bouquets in mason jars for outdoor festivities. Not only can they be hung from tree branches, they're also super cute hanging from shepard's hooks as aisle markers. To see the full tutorial with step by step instructions, please visit the Intimate Weddings blog.
