Filled with your favourite blooms jam jars, or mason jars, can make quirky and cost effective ceremony or reception decorations.
Mason jars with succulents, dahlias and foliage hung along the ceremony aisle. A floral-patterned aisle runner added a fun touch.
Ball jars wired to shepherd’s hooks were filled with wildflowers to seamlessly blend with the house’s natural landscaping.
Mason jars filled with thistle, grasses and wildflowers hung from chairs lining the aisle.
Organic arrangements of colourful flowers spilled from Mason jars that hung on shepherd hooks along the aisle.

It happened! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally married on August 23 in Chateau Miravel, France, according to a spokesperson for the couple, the Associated Press reports. According to the AP, Angelina and Brad’s Saturday wedding took place in a small chapel in front of their closest friends and family. Jolie walked down the aisle with her older children Pax and Maddox, while Vivienne and Zahara played the part of the flower girls and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers.
And hours after news broke that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married we also got a sneak peek of a ring photo when Pitt nonchalantly flashed his new yellow gold wedding band during a photo shoot for the film Fury, which will premier on October 17. With the news that the couple had an low-key wedding in secret we’re not surprised his wedding band is subtle and understated — and it’s perfect for the casual rugged style he’s been rocking lately.
Pitt and Jolie also run a vineyard on their property in Provence, Chateau Miraval, where they wed so it’s possible he’s kept the ring simple because he likes to get his hands dirty.
Before their nondenominational civil ceremony, Angelina and Brad got their marriage license from a judge in California; and according to reports, the judge also officiated the ceremony in France.
The couple have kept us on our toes for the last two years after announcing their engagement in April 2012, when Pitt gave Jolie a custom-designed 16 carat diamond engagement ring that he worked closely with jeweler Rober Procup to create. The couple has been together for nine years and have six children together.
We seriously can’t wait to see what this stylish couple wore for their secret nuptial and we’ll keep you updated right here as details unfold! (Congrats to Angelina and Brad!)

For the last few months, our news feeds have been overloaded by friends and celebs drenching themselves in ice water — all to raise awareness for ALS. But Justin Davidson from Manhattan, Kansas decided to raise the bar and, unbeknownst to his girlfriend Shelby, proposed to her when she was least expecting it… right before he dowsed her in freezing cold water!
We think this is one of our favourite ice bucket videos going around and it made us think of all the fun/different ways and lengths that guys go to, to propose to the woman of their dreams. And this lucky lady got to capture her engagement on video.
Watch her reaction below!

It went out of vogue for some time and while traditional confetti can be a bit tricky (think: staining your dress, getting in guests’ food and drink) there is no reason you can’t add a touch of confetti fun to other elements of your day.
A classic fondant cake is given a modern makeover with a confetti design running from the top tier to the base.
Add Interest to Your Manicure or Pedicure
Pick a feature nail, or even have all your nails done with a confetti style top coat. Wear a glitter varnish over another colour for a slight touch of confetti or paint a few layers to build a stronger colour. Not for the faint-hearted!

Actress and fashion icon Lauren Bacall passed away recently at the age of 89 and we’ve stumbled on her wedding video – which is absolutely timeless. She made her film debut in 1944, and wowed audiences with her seductive glance, that was coined “The Look.” Bacall also met her husband — acclaimed actor Humphrey Bogart — on the set of To Have and Have Not, and their chemistry was dynamic. Despite their 25 year age difference (she was 20 and he was 45 when they married), their son Stephen said, “He was the great love of her life, and she his.”
This vintage footage of Bacall and Bogart’s intimate wedding at an Ohio farm house, acquired by TIME from Paramount Pictures, shows the pair cutting the cake together and the bouquet toss. Below, you can even see a sweet peck on the cheek between Hollywood’s original power couple. In her memoir,Lauren Bacall By Myself, Bacall wrote, “What it felt like to be so wanted, so adored! No one had ever felt like that about me. It was all so dramatic, too.” See their undeniable chemistry below.
